ROT data is redundant, outdated and trivial content stored by an enterprise. Redundant data is duplicated in multiple places within the same system or across multiple systems.
With the advent of cloud-based applications, remote working and new collaboration tools, employees in organisations create ROT by saving multiple copies of the same information, outdated information and unneeded information over and over again with little or no control.
This data is everywhere in an organisation on individual desktops, on networks servers, on SharePoint, on premises and in the cloud.
In some companies, 75% of corporate data is duplicated across the organisation. Reducing the amount of data stored saves money, reduces data risk and increases compliance. It is possible to save up to 80% of your data storage costs through effective management of ROT.Download
