CA Information Governance
The Most Comprehensive Solution Available

This article is part of the Best Practices White Paper Focus on CA [July/August 2008]

CA Information Governance is a comprehensive, modular and scalable solution that enables proactive and policy-driven information management and retention. Now you can meet the needs of information governance in three key areas: retention management of corporate records and vital knowledge assets; email management; and the automation of data discovery, classification and management.

CA Records Manager: Controls and manages physical, electronic and email records while reducing end-user burden and administrative overhead. CA Records Manager governs the management of vital corporate knowledge assets. The federated records management (RM) architecture provides a centralized management console to enable you to apply uniform business policies, retention schedules, disposition, search, discovery, legal holds and security to vital information dispersed across enterprise content silos. CA Records Manager has been certified against the US DoD 5015.2 standard for records management applications (Ch. 2 and 4) and, in support of the federated RM platform, maintains the most partnered certifications in the industry.

CA Message Manager: Provides industry-leading mailbox management, e-discovery and supervision capabilities to enable the archival, management and tracking of email—one of the most valuable business assets. CA Message Manager provides the tools to facilitate the cost-effective management of email as an integral part of your overall business. CA Message Manager is US DoD 5015.2 certified and tightly integrated with CA Records Manager to ensure emails are consistently managed according to corporate retention policies.

CA File System Manager: Automates data discovery, classification and management of data across heterogeneous storage environments and removes stale or outdated content from valuable and high-priced storage environments for greater operational efficiency. CA File System Manager collects and analyzes detailed information about the utilization of storage and the criticality of data over its lifecycle to optimize backup and recovery and automate tiered-storage implementations.
