Description

IBM Atlas Policy Suite is part of IBM Information Lifecycle Governance solutions, which enable you to efficiently retain and archive information of value and effectively meet eDiscovery obligations across both structured and unstructured data. Together with other IBM Information Lifecycle Governance products, it enables the systematic and defensible disposal of unnecessary data, which curbs storage growth, reduces IT and legal costs, and lowers legal risk for organizations.
