Click here to view webcast on-demand
Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) has been discussed a lot over the last five years.  The SNIA DMF ILMI has gone beyond the marketing hype that has surrounded ILM by launching the new "ILM Maturity Model."
The model represents a roadmap of sorts, outlining the steps that organizations have taken, or intend to take, to achieve a self-regulating, optimized, policy-managed information storage environment.

Approximately several members of SNIA’s End-User Community contributed in this joint effort with the Data Management Forum’s ILM Initiative to develop this self-assessment of ILM maturity.  The speakers will discuss the model, how to perform an assessment, and how to use the results of the assessment.
