Publisher Comments:

With the amount of data a business accumulates now doubling every 12 to 18 months, IT professionals need to know how to develop a system for archiving important database data, in a way that both satisfies regulatory requirements and is durable and secure.

It shows how to do all this as part of a standardized archival process that requires modest contributions from team members throughout an organization, rather than the superhuman effort of a dedicated team.

* Shows how to design and implement a database archival process that is integral to existing procedures and systems.

* Explores the role of players at every level of the organization—in terms of the skills they need and the contributions they can make.
