Records Management - The Foundation of Information Lifecycle Governance The ever growing amount of business records and the increasing regulatory requirements require sound strategies for policy enforcement. There is often a disconnect in many companies within the organizational structure and the infrastructure used to manage all that content. Different parts of the organization use one set of disposition policies while others use their own set of retention rules. This disconnect can lead to content being deleted too soon, resulting in fines and sanctions when key business records cannot be produced for litigation or regulatory review. Or sometimes worse, damaging records are found under discovery that might have been destroyed if a sound records management process had been used to enforce organization-wide retention policies and "hold" orders. The cost can be enormous, not just from a legal standpoint, but from a loss of reputation, stockholder confidence, and even lost revenue standpoint if, for example, a proof of delivery cannot be found to support an invoice.

Semantic Analysis of Unstructured Data

Big data is a much-hyped subject. In fact, the term is rather misleading because it seems to relate only to the volume of data, while ignoring its heterogeneous nature. Accordingly, the general definition of "big data," as suggested by Gartner, also considers the complexity and variety of data, thus focusing on the relevance of highly heterogeneous and unstructured information and how it can be analyzed in various forms. In particular, apart from the growing network of machines and equipment, social interactions are a further source of big data. With the exchange of messages in a wide variety of formats, on various platforms, and through multiple channels, large amounts of data are generated that demand analysis and interpretation.

Best Practices in Knowledge Management

KNOW THIS:  KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE
 
Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.
 
Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.
 
But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.
 
The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
