No matter what system you’re talking about - whether it’s Microsoft’s SharePoint, enterprise content management solutions, e-mail or whatever - the message is the same: Information is messy and the way its creation, use and disposition is governed can make the difference between value creation and value loss.
But SharePoint definitely presents a new set of issues. For its many strengths, there are just as many questions: Could SharePoint become as unruly as e-mail? Will SharePoint content become the new “smoking gun” when it comes to audits, litigations and other non-compliance cases? Where do SharePoint and information governance converge?
And that’s another question: “Governance” itself is a slippery topic. Does it refer to corporate policies on the use and distribution of information? Does it refer to the IT department’s vision of compliance to its strictures? Does it mean a technology-based system for content publishing? Is it a records management initiative?
The answer is: all the above.
So through the use of real-life examples and best practices in information management, this special one-hour roundtable-style Web event will look at the many aspects of information governance in the age of SharePoint.
Among the lessons you will learn:
- What policies and technologies can be implemented to enhance SharePoint?
- How technology can be leveraged to help define, implement and enforce governance policies for SharePoint content.
- What are the considerations for implementing governance in highly collaborative content management systems like SharePoint?
- How to ensure that technology and policies don’t harm the way users work.
