IBM completes the acquisition of StoredIQ

IBM has completed its acquisition of StoredIQ, advancing IBM’s capacity to help clients react to eDiscovery demands, to dispose of information which has outlived its purpose, and to extract value from the information which it keeps. There is a press release here.

Vice President of Industry Solutions Deirdre Paknad is leading the integration of Stored IQ at IBM. She summarised the implications by saying that “With IBM and StoredIQ, organizations can maximize the value of big data and more effectively meet growing legal and privacy duties while disposing of data debris to control both cost and risk.”

Deirdre Paknad was the the originator of the expression “defensible deletion”. I wonder if she was also responsible for “data debris” – one of the more expressive phrases in this industry.
