Report and classify data based on groups
Catalyst leverages Active Directory to report and classify data based on groups. Using Catalyst's data profiling module, a summary report can be generated that shows members of a specific group, such as research or marketing, and the data owned by these members. This allows for a departmental view into network content so that it can be managed more effectively.
Additionally, Catalyst can look at the inactive members group in AD. This is typically ex-employees of an organization. Leveraging this information you can report on abandoned content, or content owned by ex-employees on the network that no user is accessing. This content can be migrated offline or even defensibly deleted.
Using Catalyst combined with Active Directory data can be profiled and classified by departments and business groups. This allows for a more meaningful view into corporate data assets. Additionally, leveraging the AD group containing inactive users network data can be cleaned and purged from expensive storage environments saving on IT budgets and reclaiming wasted expense.
