Large organizations deal with employee departures and status changes on a near daily basis.

Software Deployment Models Impact Innovation

Enterprise software and consumer technology have collided, escalating expectations among users for constant innovation and usability. Today's workplace is filled with individuals who receive frequent software updates on their smartphones and tablets, but are tethered to mission-critical software and desktop systems that are regularly three to five years out of date. . . .

Search Prowess Is Key to Effective E-Discovery

Of the many challenges that bedevil e-discovery as the practice matures, two are most easily resolved by technology: the need to reduce keyword hits to a manageable number without omitting relevant results; and the need to view and search document in their native formats. Because thorough and effective search depends upon having the complete original text and metadata available via the native-format document, these needs overlap. . . . Posted January 28, 2014

Information Governance Is Good Business

It's no secret that the volume of information is increasing significantly, continuing on an exponential growth path. Forward-thinking organizations are recognizing critical business information as a corporate asset that needs to be protected and cost-effectively managed to maximize value and minimize risks and costs. In fact, 60% of IT security decision makers will make establishing or implementing a formal information risk management framework a top priority this year. . . . Posted January 28, 2014

New Tools for the Old School: Affordable Early Case Assessment and Information Governance

Modern litigators know that Big Data has created a big chasm in every organization's ability to monitor, manage and mine critical data. Within most enterprises, the explosion of unstructured data is powering new levels of productivity, but distributing critical communications across different applications, on different devices, stored in disparate databases, has vastly complicated document discovery for auditing, investigation and litigation. . . .

E-Discovery and the Cloud

Greg Arnette, founder and CTO of Sonian, strikes me as a serious and studious guy, who understands the deep implications of his business. I like that. His business, just so you know, is creating the technology and infrastructure that supports e-discovery, especially in the cloud. He's deeply into the cloud.

The forces of change for Greg include the impact of cloud computing, the exponential amount of data creation, and the degree to which it is a new burden on IT to wrangle it all....

Three Ways Enterprise Software Stays the Same

As enterprise software moves into the world of SaaS and consumer technology innovations invade the workplace, how we design, build and sell business technology both changes fundamentally and remains exactly the same. Do you know how your company needs to change? And how to hold on to the fundamentals that work?

Extremely creative start-ups have folded or only realized moderate success due to the false assumption that what works for consumers will work for the enterprise. On the other hand,traditional enterprise software providers that assume the consumerization of IT will not change their business may be at risk as well.

I have found that there are three fundamentals about enterprise software that have not changed. . . .

A New Era for Early Case Assessment

In this era of unprecedented data growth, using advanced analytics in early case assessment has never been more compelling. By applying "concept-aware analytics" at the outset of a case, legal teams can immediately focus on insights and evaluation without concern for consolidation of the information.

Concept-aware analytics enables users to cluster and organize large pools of information into useful subsets without eliminating it during the entry stages of the litigation lifecycle. Unlike keyword-based analytics technology approaches, concept-aware analytics requires no dictionaries, thesauri, keyword libraries. . . .

Managing Unstructured Information for Control, Compliance and Cost

Enterprises struggling to reduce the impact of spiraling storage management costs or comply with government regulation are looking for solutions to address the challenge of legacy data—dentifying and analyzing electronic information that exists in file shares (shared network drives,) SharePoint and Exchange. Because this problem affects nearly every organization, savvy IT and compliance managers need to work together to implement and enforce comprehensive information governance strategies that focus on identifying and applying policy to information for control, compliance and cost reduction benefits. . . .

An Information Governance Disaster?

Of the 2,320 respondents participating in 451 Research's 2013 report, "E-Discovery and E-Disclosure 2013: The Ongoing Journey to Proactive Information Governance," less than half believed that an information governance program was important to their organization, but more than half of the IT staff responding they thought it was important. The report also stated that only 32% of senior management believed information governance was important. AIIM's 2013 Industry Watch Report, "Information Governance—Records, Risks and Retention in the Litigation Age," noted that only 24% of organizations train new recruits on information governance and only 16% regularly train all staff. . . .

Information Governance as a Service

Software as a service (SaaS), sometimes referred to as "on-demand software" supplied by independent software providers or application service providers (ASPs), is a software delivery model in which software is hosted in the cloud. SaaS is typically accessed by authorized users using a Web browser and generally priced using a subscription fee, most commonly a monthly or an annual fee.

The adoption of cloud technology has rapidly increased throughout the enterprise in the last two years. Forrester predicts that the market for cloud computing will grow from $41 billion to $241 billion by 2020. . . .

Information Governance: Who's In Charge?

"Information governance" has become front-of-mind for many people who are involved in information management. I know because I get the press releases.Just kidding. Partly. It's true that, as is often the case, trends in information management can be "vendor-driven" as they say in the comic books. Meaning, "we want to sell you something, and we're calling it (blank)." But this growing emphasis on governance got me wondering what the driving forces really are, and whether there's anything more than a simply hype cycle behind it.So I convened a good old-fashioned roundtable-style conference call recently. . . .
