SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aparavi, the company behind the award-winning Aparavi Data Intelligence and Automation Platform, today announced the availability of new connectors to bring Aparavi’s data management tools directly to Microsoft SharePoint Server and OneDrive, helping organizations reduce costs, increase efficiency and reduce risk by analyzing and optimizing unstructured data.
The Aparavi Platform delivers a deep dive into data and metadata in SharePoint and OneDrive to identify and provide insight into redundant files, aging files, files with sensitive information, and more. Aparavi easily scans and finds unstructured data by hundreds of criteria and can automate chores such as classifying, deleting, and moving data to offsite archive to reduce storage footprints.
Key to Aparavi’s value for SharePoint and OneDrive is its ability to assess files and locate redundant, obsolete, and trivial (ROT) data─typically 25-80 percent of business files—to free up storage. Aparavi can also proactively identify files with regulated personal information such as SSNs or financial information, and confidential business data, that might be vulnerable to data breaches and cyberattacks.
By performing “data hygiene” in SharePoint and OneDrive, and eliminating unnecessary files, Aparavi also helps groom data for better and faster results in data analytics and machine learning.
“The Aparavi platform will significantly lighten the load of managing unstructured data on these business-critical applications, improve governance and compliance, reduce the costs of carrying ROT data, trigger archive or deletion, and even groom files for better results in analytics or AI/ML,” said Adrian Knapp, CEO and founder of Aparavi. “The new connectors for SharePoint and OneDrive are important additions to our ecosystem of supported platforms and should be considered essential tools to extend the functionality, security, and efficiency of Microsoft products.”
Aparavi has also added SharePoint Cloud to its compatible cloud targets, enabling organizations to automatically copy or move data to SharePoint Cloud for migration initiatives to streamline operations, gain elastic scaling, and maintain data access while containing the costs of cloud capacity.
Aparavi empowers organizations to find and unlock the value of their data wherever it resides, as well as mitigate risks and reduce storage requirements and costs. The cloud-based/SaaS platform finds, automates, governs and consolidates distributed data using data intelligence and automation. Aparavi helps transform data into a competitive asset and makes it more accessible for data analytics, machine learning and other tasks. The platform also can clean data and archive it to off-site targets, such as public cloud or object storage-compatible targets, reducing customers’ on-premises storage footprint by up to 40 percent and making data less vulnerable. Its advanced search works across all systems to provide insight into data and metadata by location, owner, content, events, creation, last access, extension type, or modification date, and eliminate ROT data.
