Free Guide: 11 Things IT Should Be Doing (But Isn’t)

Unstructured data at colleges and universities grows at an extremely rapid pace as students, faculty, administrative and research staff contribute to file server and email stores daily. In addition, universities have many terabytes of reference information that aids students and staff in their endeavors.

Access to much of this data is regulated by privacy and copyright laws. In addition to the rapidly changing file server and email contents (the data), IT managers for educational institutions must also manage entitlements for an ephemeral and ever-changing user population (the students). This means managing large numbers of transient data users whose entitlements need to be restricted and yet frequently edited as they advance or change in educational focus.
