Compliance requirements for corporations have drastically increased with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and new Federal Rules for Civil Procedure (FRCP). And they're about to get even tougher as Congress debates new rules for capping or exchanging "carbon credits" for controlling emissions and waste. Posted July 11, 2008

Most of today's biggest and best businesses do not run on SAP, Oracle, Siebel or alone—they also run on email. That's right, email. In all its forms—Microsoft Exchange, Notes and proprietary platforms; and with all their access points—Web, Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express and mobile. This simple medium of communication has grown uncontrolled into one of the largest corporate information repositories. Email has become a collaboration tool, calendar, contact database, revision control platform and overall central repository for everything many of us do in every business day. It is now the unofficial de-facto file server... Posted July 09, 2008

Let's face it: when it comes to electronic data, especially email, most of us are pack rats. We are loath to delete anything, no matter how old or utterly useless it might seem, for fear of not being able to find a document or message in the (highly unlikely) event we need a key piece of information. When the email administrator knocks on our office door or cube wall, our justification is elegantly simple: we should be able to keep as much email as we want because "storage is cheap...

The unfortunate rise in business disruptions from natural disasters, accidents, and human intervention increasingly proves how business continuity and disaster readiness planning is necessary to any responsible business operation. Whether it's something as ordinary as a fire, power outage, or computer virus, or a dramatic anomaly like a major hurricane or terrorist attack, more and more businesses—large and small—are facing the reality that the unexpected can happen at any time...

Governance, risk management and compliance (GRC)—is it a new acronym for existing processes? Yes and no. Individual disciplines for governance, risk and compliance have existed in the past; however, these activities have been fragmented, disparate and duplicative efforts across many aspects of an organization. In order to see business value from GRC, companies must redefine GRC for their organization and adapt their processes to fit these new definitions... Posted July 09, 2008

I entered into this relatively newly amalgamated area of "governance, risk management and compliance" (inevitably acronymned "GRC") with a false understanding. I assumed that compliance was what you had to do, governance is what you should do, and risk avoidance is what you achieved if you did the first two things correctly. That, I have learned, is only sort of correct. But sort of not. Which should come as no surprise to anyone who has read these columns, nor to me. I should know better. I never get it right the first time.
Seems that whether it's managing content for business purposes, or managing regulations for compliance purposes, or even managing disaster recovery for business continuity purposes, a "risk-based approach" is all the rage...

The case for federated records management (RM) is strong—leave records in their native repositories, but manage them centrally. That way, the records do not need to be physically moved into a single location, yet a single set of retention rules can be applied. Records are "virtualized" so that they all appear to be within the federated records management application, from which they can be searched, placed on hold, or acted on in other ways.

So why do these companies matter? Not necessarily because they are the most innovative, but that's a factor. Not because they are ahead of the curve on Enterprise 2.0 initiatives, but that's also a factor.Not because they are the most financially successful (that's not a factor), and not because they have the most efficient marketing engines—that's not a factor either.We have long held that the true essence of knowledge management is an attitude, a single-minded commitment to improvement.

Selecting winners for these awards gets more difficult each year. When we handed out the first ones at the 2001 KMWorld conference, we received roughly 20 nominations for each category. The number of submissions has grown each year since then; we received more than 175 (both formal and informal) this year, and paring them down to these finalists was especially tough...
