Key figure Data Owner
If obsolete data disappears from the productive area of the file server, in most cases IT administration becomes active. However, this situation is absurd because only the department or the file owner (data owner) is aware of the data content and can make a clear statement about the relevance and further use of files.
However, with the growing structures of thousands of files, the question of data owners within directories is anything but trivial.
Reliable identification of the data owner
In migRaven.24/7 the number of files per user is displayed in the File Owner tab. The user with the most files created is either the Data Owner himself or at least knows who it is from the circle of colleagues.
If the data owner of a directory has been determined, the data owner rights can be assigned to the corresponding user on the directory in one click. This gives the data owner the opportunity to give himself an overview of the files and the structure and can decide whether
- certain directories are obsolete,
- Permissions are no longer appropriate,
- Archiving policies should be assigned to the directory.
