Managing Data

Data can accumulate quickly and dramatically, so it's important to establish a policy to define how long an organization needs to hold on to specific data. An organization should only retain data for as long as it's needed. Retaining data longer than necessary takes up storage space which could possibly lead to performance issue, instability of the digital workforce and increased cost.

A comprehensive data retention policy outlines the business reasons for retaining specific data, as well as what to do when this data is targeted for disposal. The policy should also define what is permitted to be written to the Blue Prism logs.

A data retention policy should treat archived data differently from backup data. An organization's backup data helps it recover in the event of data loss. Archived data is no longer actively used by the organization, but still needed for long-term retention. An organization may need data shifted to archives for future reference or for compliance. Archives are stored on cheaper storage media, so they reduce costs and the volume of primary data storage. The organization should be able to search archives easily.
