ArchiveIt enables you to define and implement a robust data governance model that fully complies with your data policies and regulatory standards.

Let us now proceed to examine the benefits of this innovative data management solution.

Seamless Data Handling

ArchiveIt is a point-and-click data archival and purging tool. It is simple to set up and can be used with minimal effort. All you need to do is select the required data elements and schedule an activity, and ArchiveIt will execute the activity perfectly. You can use the tool to perform mass data manipulations including mass updates and mass deletions in a hassle-free manner.  You can also opt for the Google Sheets add-on, which will facilitate easy analysis of the data.

Excellent ROI on Your Data Storage  

You can save up to 90% on data storage costs by implementing ArchiveIt. The novel data archival and purging solution can help you ensure only essential data is stored on Salesforce, thereby reducing storage costs considerably.

Hassle-Free Data Storage and Retrieval

For years, companies created backup copies of entire business data, which could be used if data in primary storage facilities was lost. However, creating backup copies of entire data is very expensive and time-consuming. Furthermore, it takes considerable time to retrieve the required data from a data backup copy. ArchiveIt puts an end to these problems. The application enables you to define process-oriented criteria for archiving data, allowing you to store only useful data and purging the rest. You can retrieve required data very quickly, as the volume of data stored in the archives is limited. ArchiveIt is fully integrated with Salesforce Lightning Connect, enabling you to handle the data in archived objects as easily as the custom objects in your org.

A Robust Data Governance Model Can Be Defined

One of the key elements of effective data governance is the ability to ensure the availability of relevant data. ArchiveIt helps you to define criteria to identify and purge unnecessary data, thereby allowing you to circulate only useful data, thereby improving the data quality. We will see more about data quality in a moment.

Enhanced Data Quality Leads To Better Results

It is well-known that data of good quality leads to better business results and improved customer experiences. By eliminating valueless data, ArchiveIt helps enhance the productivity of your marketing initiatives; you can target the right customers more effectively, resulting in enhanced revenues for your organization.

100% Compliance with Data Policies and Regulatory Norms

ArchiveIt helps you enforce effective data governance mechanisms that ensure full compliance with your data policies and norms laid out in General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Data can be stored in the country of its origin and identified easily for suitable action. The data archival and purging tool also helps you comply with the customer-data-related norms specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).    

High Levels of Data Protection

Ensuring safety of data is a critical component of good data management. ArchiveIt ensures that no data is lost during data processing operations. The data archival and purging tool is designed to ensure quick restoration of data after the operations. ArchiveIt also facilitates safe and secure transfer of data from one Salesforce org to another. The tool ensures that data is encrypted, thereby ensuring its security. Furthermore, the tool can be used to check and validate the data before it enters the production server. This will go a long way in ensuring no data is lost and the data entering the server is accurate and of high quality.  

Effective Data Masking in Test Environments

It is well-known proper testing of data plays a key role in ensuring its effective usage. ArchiveIt enables you to perform testing of data in a very secure manner. The data archival application allows you to mask sensitive business data such as dates of birth, social security details, debit card numbers and so on, so that it cannot be accessed by unauthorized persons.  

Significant Improvement in System Performance

A considerable growth in data can make your Salesforce system less responsive and result in slower performance of queries. You can overcome this problem very effectively, using ArchiveIt. The application allows you to retain only useful data in the system and archive the rest, enhancing the system’s performance.
