E-discovery News & Analysis
| Wednesday Jan 15, 2014
The most interesting trend I saw last year from the perspective of our content technologies consulting practice was the increase in clients asking us -- rather than vice versa -- to provide them with an enterprise information management (EIM) strategy (rather than an enterprise content management, records management, content management, business process management, e-discovery, mobile, social content, or any combination therein strategy). Two things surprised me about this trend.

Too many organizations equate "information governance" with "information lock-down." This is a mistake.
Risk mitigation shouldn’t be the only factor driving your information governance strategy.

E-discovery matured in the past year, as concepts and themes like predictive coding and early case assessment (ECA) took on more actionable, serious tones.
Increasingly, e-discovery demands involve other electronic information disciplines, like records management, cyber security and corporate compliance. This has brought a larger, more diverse group of stakeholders to the e-discovery table and transformed e-discovery to part of a larger, interwoven information governance (IG) framework.
But the change is challenging, and many organizations are just beginning to apply learned e-discovery principals that can aid defining a comprehensive IG plan.

Information management is the poor cousin to customer experience management and digital marketing. It's often overlooked as enterprises focus on other areas of strategic concern. But that's a mistake, as many of the authors on CMSWire have pointed out over the past year.

For years, movies have shown new and exciting ways to interact with information; from Star Trek to The Matrix, it's all about the cool interfaces. In Minority Report, Chief John Anderton, played by Tom Cruise, interacted simultaneously with mental images, live video streams and records from various police systems. All of this information was called up in a connected manner, gave Anderton information as he required it and allowed him to store it together upon completion.
This may not be science fiction much longer. We are rapidly approaching a point where this connected view of the world is possible and this will change everything.

Manufacturing and “heavy industry” have much in common with respect to their enterprise content management (ECM) habits, and comparing your own organization against a wider peer group may help get you out of the status quo rut you may be in.

Your email is blowing up. Your phone is buzzing. You are not even done with your commute and you've already lined up two conference calls, a chat session and a cooperative exchange of Google Docs. You know you are forgetting something so you flip to your to-do list app, then your calendar, then back to your to-do list. And finally you remember that it’s in your reminder app. You want to throw your phone out of your car but you are also terrified of that thought because your phone is your office when you’re away from your desk.

In the first part of our look at Forrester Wave for ECM 2013, we saw that the market is changing rapidly as vendors are forced to provide functionality that corresponds to enterprise productivity rather than compliance needs. We also saw that agile, small vendors are starting to eat away at the dominance of the large, established players. Even still, the Wave is led by EMC, IBM and OpenText, while HP pushed its way into the Leaders' segment on the back of the Autonomy acquisition.

Want to look like a fool? Then call EMC Documentum a legacy Enterprise Content Management system that’s too sluggish and weighed-down to keep pace with the times.

Practically any discussion of social media analytics revolves around marketing. This is unfortunate since it diminishes the impact social media analytics should be having in other parts of the company.
