SPEAKERS: Craig Mullins (NEON Enterprise Software)

Several events in recent years have changed the requirements for retaining data from operational databases to long periods of time. Required retention periods have ballooned to many years, and in some cases, to many decades. This coupled with the rapid rise in data volumes and the importance of providing archived data on demand many years after it is created, has surfaced the need for companies to build a solid practice for archiving and managing business data from their online operational databases. The presentation covers the basics of an archiving methodology and a number of topics that require special consideration in building a database archiving practice. Topics covered are application independence, metadata independence, data authenticity, change management, storage management, and access control.
