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

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. . . .

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....

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. . . .

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. . . .

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. . . . Posted August 27, 2013

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. . . .

Enterprises face unprecedented challenges in an ever-changing regulatory and competitive environment. In many areas, there is still human capital churn, drastic cost cutting and disruptive technology trends—including bring your own device, enterprise social, cloud and big data access—that must be addressed by IT departments. How can they rise to the challenge of providing the right level of infrastructure and strategic systems to enable businesses to be self-sustaining?

There are myriad solutions on the market today for structuring data management—including but certainly not limited to data quality. . . .

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" 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. . . .

Many organizations continue to adopt SharePoint because of its flexibility and ease of use. But along with the popularity comes an expanding volume of unstructured and relatively unmanaged information that can pose significant, often hidden, compliance risks. So how does an enterprise leverage the value of SharePoint while ensuring that information is managed in compliance with organizational policies and standards? . . . Posted July 16, 2013

Organizations using SharePoint have tremendous collaboration benefits. But this collaborative environment also requires organizations and individuals to be trusted with a vast amount of sensitive data: customers' personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI) and confidential company content including intellectual property (IP), human resource files, M&A, board documents, customer lists or product strategies, just to name a few.

There can be risks to storing confidential data on a platform built for collaboration. In fact, the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), which tracks disclosed data breaches, reported 212 breaches so far in 2013 alone. . . .

Microsoft SharePoint has become the global standard for enterprise content management. The amount of content stored and accessed through SharePoint is growing by leaps and bounds at a rate of roughly 75% every year. As the amount of content grows, so does its importance to enterprise users. Users need access to this critical information, at various times and locations.

As such, one of the challenges facing global enterprises is ensuring that SharePoint content is constantly up-to-date and synchronized for all end users. The days of a single SharePoint deployment for one office are largely extinct. Most SharePoint deployments now have multiple farms and many must provide content, in real-time. . . .

The goals of any enterprise content management (ECM) system are to connect an organization's knowledge workers, streamline its business processes, and manage and store its information. Microsoft SharePoint has taken hold as the leading content management system in today's hyper-connected and hyper-competitive business landscape as organizations look to foster information transparency and collaboration—by providing efficient capture, storage, preservation, management and delivery of content to end users.

A recent study by the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) found that 53% of organizations currently utilize SharePoint for ECM.

"If the business says ‘go,' you go. You figure out ways to make it happen." That's Mary Leigh Mackie, director of product marketing at AvePoint. She is underscoring the current trending in the world of Microsoft's SharePoint platform, particularly (but not exclusively) as it applies to content management. Her point: If it has to work, you make it work. She is referring to the customization capabilities of the ubiquitous platform, which is currently deployed in just about every business, in one form or another, that you can shake a stick at. . . .
