"For one site, in terms of labor savings, it would have taken a human over 9 years to accomplish what we did in a few months. For me, it’s not even about the cost savings, it’s that an actual physical human being couldn’t do this."

Why Should You Care About Microsoft 365 Transformation?

Microsoft 365 (M365) has become the cornerstone of many organizations’ strategy for digital transformation.

Even if your ultimate goal is to drive all your data to M365, you probably have dark data in repositories that you can’t easily minimize or migrate – for example, data housed outside the Microsoft environment.

If you’re not able to identify that dark data, you risk becoming too narrowly focused on the information held within the M365 platform. If that happens, your data estate won’t be consistently compliant with either your internal policies or any data regulations.

Why ActiveNav?

Because dark data is so diverse, traditional general data privacy vendors typically have critical gaps in their services:

They don’t dig deeply enough into difficult data repositories (i.e. email, file sharing, etc.).

They don’t help you visualize and contextualize your dark data to enable you to take action.

Their rules can’t be sufficiently customized to match your organization’s needs.
