Data Management is what makes IT matter to business.
Only by understanding what your data assets are -- their business context -- can you provision them with the right resources, protect them appropriately, or govern them in a manner that is compliant with regulatory and legal mandates.
Data protection is the first job of data management.
Without your data, it is impossible to recover from even minor interruption events. Is your disaster recovery strategy data aware? Are you going to find out only after a disaster occurs?
The key to compliance and cost-containment is data archive.
An effective archive strategy ensures that data is retained in accordance with regulations in the most secure, reliable and cost effective manner. How you store and manage data today may have an impact on your business viability down the road.
Data protection includes data security and encryption.
A growing number of laws require firms to encrypt data when it moves off premise and, in some cases, to protect data at rest. Are you securing your data assets effectively?
Data has its own lifecycle, with set retention and deletion requirements.
Moreover, you need to be prepared to find specific data quickly to respond to court orders and summons. Are you prepared?
A sustainable strategy for driving cost out of IT means matching the right services to the right data.
Do you know what services and resources your data needs? One size fits most doesn't fit any data very well.

gan·try (gan′trē) noun
Gantry is a sophisticated Joomla template framework with the sole intention of being the best platform to build a solid template with. Gantry takes all the lessons learned during the development of many RocketTheme templates and distils that knowledge into a single super-flexible framework that is easy to configure, simple to extend, and powerful enough to handle anything we want to throw at it.
The Gantry framework is packed with many great features that enable the rapid development of feature-rich designs with a minimum amount of effort. We've also gone to great lengths to enhance the standard Joomla administration user interface to make configuring a Gantry-powered template easier than ever before. Check out a sampling of the features Gantry brings to the table:
The Gantry library is a separate from the templates that use it. It is installed separately as com_gantry (although will not appear under Components in the Joomla Administrator). Therefore, to update Gantry, you just need to reinstall through the Joomla interface rather than manually edit files in the template.
Each template will have a bundle download option available to install both the template and the Gantry library at the same time, in conjunction with a standalone download.
The administrative interface for Gantry is one of, if not the, most extensive and intuitive Joomla administrators in the community as a whole today. Gantry takes the template parameter ability of Joomla and takes it to the next level with a robust, diverse, functional and overall, substantial array of options to control, essentially, all aspects of the template.
The options are subdivided into various categories:
