AI got your tongue?

On March 13, 2024, days before this newsletter went to press, the European Union approved the Artificial Intelligence Act, an expansive law with global reach that impacts technology companies, corporations, and business leaders worldwide. If you’re an organization that plans to develop or deploy AI - 

- the EU AI Act is likely to affect you...

While the EU Act is the first of its kind, U.S. federal guidelines, such as the AI Bill of Rights, exist, and a number of U.S. States have AI legislation at various stages, which share many of the same requirements.  

As an early adopter of AI, our team has been following with interest the three-year progress of this legislation, as well as the impact of large language model (LLM) and generative AI adoption.  In this newsletter, we address the issue of AI and data quality, a key factor when it comes to AI regulations.  We also discuss how we’re working with customers to help them proactively optimize their Azure cloud costs.  According to Gartner, by 2025 90% of enterprise deployments of GenAI will slow as costs exceed value and 30% of projects will be abandoned after proof of concept due to poor data quality, inadequate risk controls, escalating costs, or unclear business value. 

The ability to cost-effectively scale your data governance processes so you can support your organization’s plans for LLM and AI is key.  So please check out our article on AI and Trustworthy Data as well as the update on AdminAssist.  If you are an Archive360 customer and your organization hasn’t already implemented AdminAssist, please speak with your account management team.

Delivering On AI’s Promise Begins and Ends with Trustworthy Data

data governance strategy (1)

According to Gartner, by 2025, 90% of enterprise deployments of genAI will slow as costs exceed value and 30% of those projects will be abandoned after proof of concept (POC) due to poor data quality, inadequate risk controls, escalating costs, or unclear business value.

Amidst an ever-increasing volume of data¹, organizations struggle to gain insight from their data for a variety of reasons:

  • Data is trapped in isolated silos, inaccessible when and where needed
  • Lack of recognition that data is important
  • Lack of data literacy and accountability
  • Non-standard data usage and delivery
  • Inconsistent governance and control
  • Overlapping data holdings across the organization

Being able to deliver an effective AI program and derive, efficiently and effectively, the most value from data depends on shifting the data management paradigm:



Treating data as a work byproduct

Treating data as a strategic asset

Inconsistent or missing data classification

A standard data set classification framework across the organization

Unreliable data

Data literacy and accountability

User-based management of data

Unified, policy-based governance of application and system data

Passive data access management

Automatically moving post operational data to a more secure archive to ensure data is properly protected

Costly and risky data storage in the production environment

Automatically retiring post operational data to a storage solution that improves operational system performance and minimizes the data’s overall lifetime costs and risks, ensuring legal & policy compliance

Inconsistent data quality assurance

Continual data integrity validation and tracking

Text BoxTo enable and facilitate this paradigm shift, organizations need to set and adhere to explicit data rules, invest in developing data literacy and accountability, and harness technology to drive standards, practices, and policies to preserve and enhance the value of its data.



Archive360’s Unified Data Governance platform provides the technical foundation to automatically manage risky and inactive data more efficiently and cost-effectively. By migrating the data to your own dedicated SaaS archive, locking down who can access it, and managing its lifecycle, you reduce data storage, management, and discovery costs and mitigate data compliance risks. Our platform provides unmatched options for classifying, protecting, processing, managing, and tracking your data from creation through disposition. You’ll know and trust your data – where it was created, who created, accessed, or has access to it, what topic(s) it is related to, and if it contains sensitive information – so you can manage its value and risks more effectively and efficiently and be in a better position to deliver on AI’s promise.
