Kathleen Reidy of The 451 Group looks at Information Governance to define what it is, adoption trends and challenges.
Boston, US and London, UK - Vamosa, a provider of software and solutions for Enterprise Content Governance (ECoG), announces the availability of a new white paper transcript entitled, "The Rise of Information Governance." The paper, resulting from a recent webinar with The 451 Group, forms part of Vamosa's white paper series, providing valuable insight into getting more out of content by transforming it into findable knowledge.
Kathleen Reidy, Senior Analyst, The 451 Group, said, "Information governance is how an organization is thinking about preparedness for e-discovery or e-disclosure; about records management, about email archiving and information lifecycle management from an operational storage optimization perspective. How do we think about this all together, more holistically across a lot of content that hasn't previously been managed? Information Governance is knowing what content exists, where it is located, how long it will be kept, who will have access to it - and then how to ensure it is protected and that policies and standards are used and enforced."
Ceri Jones, Vice-President Marketing, Vamosa, said, "What is clear is how many components of information management generally are covered in the broad description of information governance. The way to deal with the issues businesses are facing will be different depending on the compelling events in each business. Vamosa works with a lot of these companies, helping them understand the issues they need to work though such as e-discovery, improving performance or getting more value out of an existing CMS. We also help organizations manage information going forward as a result of moving from one CMS to another."
