  Why A Cradle to Grave Solution?
 

One of the biggest challenges the enterprise has to contend with is its ability (or inability) to acquire, organize, manage, and properly dispose of its information assets (dataàinformationàknowledge). The enterprise’s ability to be able to consistently identify, locate, review, retrieve, preserve, and dispose of its records depends not only upon the policies and procedures the enterprise has in place, but the tools used.

In information technology, knowledge is, to an enterprise or an individual, the possession of information or the ability to quickly locate it. Essentially, this is what Samuel Johnson, compiler of the first comprehensive English dictionary, said when he wrote: "Knowledge is of two kinds: we know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it." Just as importantly, Looking-Glass® provides clients with the comprehensive information asset management tools to help minimize litigation risk, enable quick and accurate reconstitution of corporate data, manage records from their creation to their disposition, and reduce information technology operating costs.

Looking-Glass® has but one goal: Facilitate the highest level of information asset management and protection for its clients through the application of appropriate processes and technologies.
