It's that time of the year again - time to get out the old rake, paintbrush and mop to clean up all the clutter that has accumulated around you over the last few months. For most people this process typically involves the rehabilitation of your house and lawn, but for technical folks it should also include an audit and clean up of the data and infastructure that your company relies on to do business.

In order to help you in your organization's cleaning efforts, we decided to do a short series of blog posts that will provide tips for managing and maintaining an orderly R1Soft environment.

But how do we stuff all of that into SPLA so that everyone understands?
