New at migRaven: Tagging! Structure unstructured data easily and flexibly.

Use tagging to add an additional level of information for metadata on the file server.

In recent years, the growth of data in companies has passed a tipping point. Today, data stocks are already doubling approximately every three years. Companies are only hesitant to face the challenges that arise from this. This is a mistake.

As data grows, so does the structure in which this data is located, making it increasingly difficult to maintain an overview in this unstructured system. At the same time, however, the demands on data management are increasing when it comes to the treatment of certain data, for example personal data. For many companies, the requirements of the GDPR can hardly be implemented on the file server. Because they simply don't know where exactly which data is located.

Classification: The key to data management and data security

Classification is a process of dividing data into different categories or classes in order to manage and use it more efficiently and safely. This can help better control access to data, improve data security and facilitate compliance. It can also help identify and delete redundant, obsolete, and unimportant (RED) data. In short: Classification is the key to sustainable data management and also offers a wealth of solution approaches for very individual questions or problems.

New: Classification with migRaven

migRaven offers with this Release of version 7.2.23129.1 now the possibility of carrying out user-controlled classification at directory level. Freely definable tags are set on the directories and these are assigned to the previously defined categories. Classifying directories instead of individual data or files has several advantages:

  1. Efficiency: It can be time-consuming and resource-intensive to classify every single file in a large data system. By classifying directories instead, you can significantly speed up and simplify the process.
  2. Clarity: Directory classification makes it easier to keep track of data classifications. Instead of trying to remember the classification of each individual file, you can simply remember the classification of the directory in which it is located.
  3. Consistency: When similar types of data are stored in the same directories, directory classification can help maintain a consistent classification policy. This can be particularly useful in larger organizations where different people or teams may be working with the same data.
  4. Management of access rights: Classifying directories makes managing access rights easier. Instead of having to set permissions for each individual file, permissions can be set at the directory level, making the process much more efficient and easier.

Tagging directories is multifunctional and flexible, which is why there are very diverse application scenarios and great potential for use. Companies can use the information about the categories/tags via an open API and process it automatically according to their needs.

Possible uses include:

  • automated classification,
  • automated moving / deleting / protecting data,
  • Archiving of directories of certain tags (e.g. according to tax retention periods)
  • Building an “alternative” data structure, which is... migRaven.24/7 Desktop Client is visible in My Folders.
