  • Information Lifecycle Management
  • A new set of management practices based on aligning the business value of information to the most appropriate and cost effective infrastructure
  • ILM is a new approach to operating the datacenter

  • BPM techniques, methods and technologies enable you to identify and modify existing processes to align them with a desired (improved) future state.
