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.

KMWorld White Paper Series

***Coming in February 2016***
Best Practices for E-Discovery

By now everyone is aware that electronically stored information (ESI) is at the crux of many civil litigations, and can represent the "smoking gun" when it comes down to a fight. The courts are becoming much more knowledgeable about the discovery of electronic records, and the rules that govern the process. But many organizations are either slow or unknowledgeable about how to protect themselves.

At the same time, that ESI can be of great benefit to many business processes. It should be protected, but not wasted. This tension between the legal officers, the IT department and business managers has caused great turmoil in most organizations.

And where there's turmoil, there's opportunity.

Best Practices in Digital Asset & Video Management

The emergence of “rich media” and its inevitable impact on business is just beginning. But it’s real--early adopter companies are already taking cues from the media and entertainment industries and are finding the great potential for value locked within their marketing videos, PowerPoint presentations, and training courses.

Will the entire world come to rely on digital assets? Probably not. But where it matters, it matters a lot. And those are the people clamoring right now for the best solution to their digital asset management (DAM) challenges. They want to solve matters surrounding cloud storage, how assets are retrieved, how assets are shared and features for brand management.

This is the time to seek them out and tell your story.
