Database Archiving: How to Keep Lots of Data for a Very Long Time (Mk/Omg Press)by Jack E. Olson
Synopses & Reviews
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. This important and timely new book explains how to solve these challenges without compromising the operation of current systems. 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.

* Provides detailed information on building the business case for all types of archiving projects
