With increased pace of data creation in the digital space, data archiving has become an integral part of global record management practices for reasons such as compliance requirements, lawsuit management, storage reduction, business intelligence and information governance.
Mercer-Mettl follows the global standards of archiving data of tests in its client accounts for the above reasons.
1. What is Data Archiving?
Data Archiving is a 2-step process:
Step 1: identifying data that was created in an account in the past and is no longer actively used.
Step 2: Moving the identified data from active databases to long-term storage systems. Such data is stored in a manner that it can be retrieved back into service when needed. As per this process, any test created in an account of Mercer-Mettl can be archived and then retrieved.
2. How to archive a test?
