With the multiplication of applications and media, we can spend up to 30 minutes a day searching for information and finding the right document.
This waste of time could be largely avoided with an analyzed and sanitized file system.  

You will then be able to act on two levels: digital sobriety and IT security.


Did you know that sending 20 e-mails a day for 1 year is the equivalent of a 1,000 km car journey? It may sound crazy, but it’s actually true, as we explain in our article on digital sobriety.


According to the Cyber Malveillance website, the 2023 threat panorama focuses on 3 main points

Why analyze and manage your digital bulk?

Let’s start with the requirements at company level, and the risks involved in not processing your data clutters..We have listed a number of advantages of decluttering.

  1. Extract and understand the value from your bulk, and how it can be useful to the company.
  2. Gives you certainty that risk is managed when clutter is managed.
  3. Bring conformity.
  4. Manage storage space.
  5. Optimize your productivity by organizing your digital bulk. 
  6. Enhancing safety 


And all these conditions lead the company to stop managing bulk goods as a “just-in-case” storage space, and to think of bulk as a space where information must be managed for as long as necessary, and where information must be removed when the time comes.Gives you certainty that risk is managed when clutter is managed

What is a digital bulk?

A digital bulk is a pile of documents which, over the years in companies, has led employees to lose control of their information.

The information is not very well described, and can be stored in different types of systems: a filesystem, SharePoint for example, or even e-mail.

The company finds itself faced with this heap of information, which today poses a problem, and which it has to think about managing, because it doesn’t know what it has in this bulk.
