Archiving Everything is Not Information Governance Sanity


The amount of information building in organizations today forces us to put in place smart information governance policies. Simply archiving everything is not a feasible or an intelligent plan.

One of the biggest information governance drivers today is eDiscovery. With eDiscovery pressures management now has the ability to create a solid business case for refining information governance practices: reducing the volume of records flowing into eDiscovery systems translates into real cost savings.

But creating an information governance plan is no easy task. Consider for starters that most of the involved groups don't typically talk to one another.

Enterprise CMS and Information Management firm Open Text, along with Forrester Research Senior Analyst Brian Hill, is holding a mock eDiscovery meeting on November 16th at 2pm Eastern time. The event will bring together key players from IT, legal, Records & Information Management and the executive team to hash through strategies for meeting requirements while reducing current pains.

Along with a discussion about the current state of information management, this light-hearted session will examine many of the serious issues organizations face when trying to manage the mounds of information they're responsible for. 

This event is designed to help you understand the concerns of different groups and provide solid guidance for creating an information governance strategy that works for your organization.

The bottom line message is that it's time to get smarter -- stop archiving everything and utilize the proven business case to support a more discerning governance strategy. Reserve your seat for this session and learn how to take the next steps towards governance sanity.
