The pre-populated data models allow CRM application managers to quickly get the archiving and management processes in place and quickly generate benefits from the Solix solution.”

At the core of Solix EDMS is the Solix Enterprise Metadata Manager, which manages multiple application and data types across all hardware platforms. The Solix Enterprise Metadata Manager enables centralized management of data security policies whether the data resides in the production instance or in test and development copies.

• Audit Data: Audit database activity, providing audit notifications and reports that can be searched and retrieved during an E-Discovery investigation; and
• Retire legacy applications: Migrate and archive legacy data for application and infrastructure upgrades
Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite:
• Solix Secure Test and Development allows organizations to automatically create database copies while masking sensitive data in non-production environments for improved security, faster test and development cycles, and reduced storage costs.
• Solix Data Auditor is a policy driven security tool that monitors and reports on what data has been accessed, updated or deleted, providing event notification and reporting of database activity in a secure repository that can be searched during an audit or eDiscovery inquiry.
• Solix Enterprise Archiving, archives all data (application, email, documents and other files) to a secure, controlled, and searchable archive laying a foundation to support eDiscovery.
• Solix Application Sunsetting and Migration leverages the Solix Enterprise Metadata Manager and allows database administrators to map metadata between legacy and current applications and create conversion rules to ensure seamless data migration.
