Records Management, E-Discovery, Compliance

E-discovery used to be the province of the enterprise but that is changing, and it is changing fast. Litigation, regulatory compliance, external and internal investigations are moving into the mid-tier of organizations with a few hundred to a few thousand employees. All of these processes require e-discovery collections on user data including email, files and SharePoint. . . . Posted January 23, 2012

Concept-based advanced analytics isn't anything new, and many of the technologies incorporating conceptual analytics are very mature. Numerous case studies illustrate how these technologies help manage costs, trim schedules and increase quality throughout the e-discovery process. Justices, too, are pressing attorneys to use advanced techniques to avoid keyword pitfalls. . . . Posted January 23, 2012

The e-discovery frenzy that has gripped the American legal system over the past decade has become increasingly expensive. Particularly costly to organizations is the process of preserving and collecting documents. These aspects of discovery are often lengthy and can be disruptive to business operations. Just as troubling, they increase the duration and expense of litigation. . . . Posted January 23, 2012

All-in-one or best-in-breed? A single software suite or a number of point solutions unified together to operate as a cohesive solution? These two questions have been hotly debated in the e-discovery tech industry for years. E-discovery has many steps, and each step requires software in order to execute. As each part of the process is conducted, the individual pieces of information flow. . . . Posted January 23, 2012

I approach the monthly pleasure of writing these articles with an exotic blend of awe and dread. Dread, due mostly to the fear that I cannot possibly find anything worthwhile to say to you readers that can measurably improve your (a.) life; (b.) job or (c.) hairstyle. (I made that last one up; there always has to be three things. Just ask Rick Perry.) The awe factor usually comes when I find out about halfway through that I am utterly wrong...

Social computing has fundamentally changed the way people share and consume information—ultimately boosting productivity and innovation. Through the use of Microsoft SharePoint and social technologies, business conversations are now occurring in transparent work streams, enabling connections and dialogues to happen more expediently—and in some cases to occur under serendipitous circumstances that might never have occurred. . . .

Are you thinking about deploying SharePoint in your organization? You won't have to do much research before you come across the big "G" word—governance. Just the word itself is somewhat imposing and definitions for it will vary. In fact, if you ask three different experts what governance means, you're likely to get four different answers. And while I have yet to find the one perfect definition of governance, I can accept this one. . . . Posted October 16, 2011

For years, regulated organizations have desired improvements in unstructured information management systems. But when legal risk and compliance became an unavoidable business concern, combined with the exponential accumulation of unstructured information, regulated organizations were compelled to rethink their approach and take action. Initial attempts at managing unstructured information grew out of a "centralized" computing paradigm. . . . Posted August 16, 2011

It's no secret that most companies don't know where their data is. Even worse, Gartner reported that 90% of data is either stale or of non-business value. Data fragmentation highlights the difficulties of understanding information across the enterprise and contributes to significant risk to businesses. The challenge clearly for IT lies with utilizing effective tools for intelligent information management. . . . Posted August 16, 2011

We have all heard the parable of a group of blind men being introduced for the first time to an elephant. Each man discovers a different part of the elephant-trunk, leg, tusks, tail—and because none of them can "see" the whole creature, they each have wildly different perspectives on exactly what constitutes an "elephant." The parable has been used to describe many of our challenges in information governance. . . . Posted August 16, 2011

The data explosion that has burdened organizations across the globe for the past decade has become increasingly expensive to manage. Many IT professionals would point to storage as the most obvious culprit for higher data management costs. But another factor driving those costs are legal demands. Those demands originate from the courts and regulatory bodies, which have high expectations for how organizations should respond. . . . Posted August 16, 2011

Senior executives take note: If legal, IT and business do not come to terms with regards to why corporate information is to be managed, the manner in which content is to be managed, when and how it is to be stored and archived, and who can access this corporate information (e.g., emails, Word documents, financial records, audit reports, quarterly statements, SEC filings, etc.), you and your organization will be at risk. . . .

In today's business environment, corporate malfeasance in the management of business-related information can cost a company millions in penalties and even more in damage to brand image. Information governance (IG) is the most recent winner of buzzword bingo in this area. IG promises to mitigate risks, reduce costs and ensure that information assets are systematically "looked after" in a compliant, sustainable and economical manner. . . . Posted August 16, 2011

I hear it all the time: "Our information is out of control! We are flooded by unmanaged content! We are overwhelmed by the overloads of data washing over us!!" And I don't get it. There is PLENTY of information management... heck, you can't swing a dead cat in most businesses without hitting some kind of information management system. . . . Posted August 16, 2011
