Our client is one of the world’s largest independent oil and gas companies, employing over 1500 people worldwide with production bases in Europe and Asia.
Sword delivers a data-driven approach that enables you to understand your enterprise landscape, to de-duplicate, consolidate and migrate, and harness the value of your information and records.
As a result of several significant business acquisitions in recent years, our client had inherited an information estate containing a mix of live and outdated information totalling over 320TB and in excess of 25 million files.
Our integrated approach to information management was required to resolve these challenging issues.
Working with the client, our integrated approach to information management has delivered:
Over 4.8 million duplicate, ROT, Archive and PII files were removed from the information estate significantly reducing the time to locate and find the right information
Data consolidated from multiple drives, decommissioning redundant drives, reducing infrastructure overheads, reducing ambiguity and increasing the ease with which staff can access data and information
Company critical records migrated to SharePoint and stored appropriately to ensure internal and external compliance is supported
