What is Syl Inventory and Syl Discovery?

Audit and monitor your information

Syl Inventory is typically used for a few months to create an audit and trends of the digital assets (files, emails, web pages and data records) in an organisation. This is useful for administrative analysis and reporting of asset types and volume growth over time.

Syl Discovery is also typically used for a few months but includes detailed metadata and content analytics including the content that is embedded within other digital assets, to build a detailed catalogue of your information. You can build reports and queries on any number of attributes to better understand the information assets you hold and trends over time.

Rationalise and reduce your costs

Syl auditing tools allow you to define what information is high-value and what can be archived or disposed of, using reports on age, usage, content and duplication. Optimise project costs and ongoing ICT expenditure by reducing the total volume of data and focusing on the information that is relevant, current and valuable.

Improve compliance and reduce risk

Syl auditing tools show you what level of compliance your data has against your information management, lifecycles and security policies. You gain a proactive approach to reducing risk of data loss and unauthorised access by ensuring permissions, archival and security policies are correctly applied.

Analyse your information to increase operational performance

Extract and analyse content, find meaning and relationships in your information to gain insight into your business, your sector and your customers. Syl Inventory shows you the trends and patterns that exist in your information, allowing you to make information-led decisions.
