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

Document review in the litigation life cycle is all about speed, accuracy and cost-savings. In the traditional linear approach, documents are reviewed without regard for conceptual relevance; however, this can be a costly and slow process of sifting through thousands or even millions of potentially irrelevant documents to locate the much smaller relevant and privileged subsets requiring closer attention. . . .

There has been a confluence of e-discovery software, case law and information technology integration, which have all helped shape today's e-discovery market. As we look toward the future, we ask ourselves how to continue to optimize e-discovery to intelligently reduce data volumes, efficiently decrease collection quantity and streamline the review process, while also delivering. . . .

The ubiquity of email on the desk is being extended even further by the vast increase in the use of mobile devices, thus expanding exponentially the management challenges of the corporate email system. These challenges can arise in many contexts. For example, employees' personal use of the system can result in liability for the organization if it fails to take appropriate steps to manage employees or system content. . . .

For companies used to conducting collection and preservation for e-discovery requests, Microsoft SharePoint may seem like just another repository.

The enterprise social medium may be new, but corporate governance policies are as demanding as ever.

According to a recent analysis of litigation cost data by the Searle Center on Law, Regulation and Economic Growth at the Northwestern University School of Law, litigation costs between 2000 and 2008 have increased at an average rate of 9%, and this trend shows no evidence of slowing. In a follow-up analysis of the data, they determined that companies spent, on average, 16 to 24 cents on US litigation. . . Posted January 20, 2011

Is anyone old enough—like me—to remember back when they told us the future was going to get easier? Robots would walk the dog and watch the kids; air cars would fly themselves. And I was supposed to have a silver jump suit by now. But if anything the rapidity of innovation and the overabundance of information have only made life harder. And nowhere is that more true than in the murky corporate world of information management. . . . Posted January 20, 2011
