âOur customersâ content archiving and storage requirements are changing,â says Theresa Kollath, senior product manager for content management solutions at ASG. âThe diverse nature of content from multiple sources and rapidly changing regulatory requirements call for a solution that can provide a scalable, reliable, and available content archive environment.â
