Records Management, E-Discovery, Compliance

When we established our list of 100 Companies That Matter 10 years ago, "knowledge management" was just beginning to be a recognized term in the boardroom. KM is not now (nor will it ever likely be) a household word. Nor is it an application. It's an attitude, a commitment to excellence and innovation shared by the companies, large and small, on this list. A decade ago, a lot of vendors were so intoxicated by their technology that they tried to woo their customers with dazzling features, capabilities they thrust upon clients without fully understanding their legitimate needs. Now, in 2010, that's no longer true. The firms on this list are true solution providers that are dedicated to understanding what their customers need and delivering elegant technology for the requirements of the knowledge economy...

All companies have it. Backup tapes out of rotation, information retained from a resolved lawsuit, data left on servers after a migration, orphaned computers and media left behind when employees leave or move. Such electronic "legacy" information can be easy to ignore (or not know about), but its very existence represents an avoidable cost and unnecessary legal, regulatory and privacy risk. As mergers combine company information and layoffs separate electronic information from prior owners, legacy information is growing. And often there is no good reason for this information to persist... Posted September 18, 2009

Social computing provides new ways to create, collaborate and share information on a worldwide scale. Team members can interact and have immediate access to critical business information throughout their extended business network. With these tools, knowledge workers are creating content at an alarming rate. Moreover, Web 2.0 technologies are often highly distributed in their deployment, resulting in information that frequently lacks proper corporate controls, leaving companies vulnerable to greater risk...

The fall-out of the credit crisis has had a significant impact on the information technology (IT) landscape, and even more specifically a dramatic impact on compliance, risk, e-discovery and records management requirements. These technology-based requirements, also known as enterprise information management, affect every type and size public sector and commercial organization today. Managing and controlling electronically stored information is a matter of technology, but also of strict procedures, quality control and well-documented information management activities...

We've heard it all before—information is being generated at an unprecedented pace with no signs of slowing. One study reported that 90% of an organization's information is created digitally. The same study found that the average user sends and receives 17MB of data every day. As information continues to compound, organizations must be prepared to quickly find and produce this information in response to litigation matters and internal or external requests for information. An archiving tool can help address these issues by enabling an organization to automate its retention policies... Posted September 18, 2009

This year is the 400th anniversary of New Amsterdam, now more familiarly known as New York City. In 1609, Henry Hudson, an Englishman sailing for the Dutch East India Company, made the first exploration of what is now New York harbor and of the majestic river that today bears his name, laying the foundation for the Dutch claim on the area. His voyage of discovery led to the creation of the Dutch West India Company and ultimately to the founding of New Netherland, including its trading post at the mouth of the river—New Amsterdam...
