It’s a couple of weeks away and we’re deep into planning a great experience at KMWorld this year. Now maybe you why a software company focused on Information Governance and enterprise content management is sponsoring and speaking at KMWorld. If you sit down and think about though, the relationship is clear – Information Governance and Knowledge Management go hand in hand.
Knowledge workers deal with a lot of information spread across the company. Unfortunately a lot of it is in silos that are hard to reach and sometimes hard to find period. What do many knowledge workers do to get around this challenge? They go get everything they need and store a copy of all information in a file share or file sharing cloud-based application or on there hard drive. How do exactly do you manage this information now? How can you be sure that you aren’t violating a compliance policy or regulation? How do you your knowledge workers are accidently exposing private information? You need an information governance strategy – one that starts with file analytics.
Another way to look at this challenge is when you merge or acquire a new company. The same challenges, the same risks, and the same opportunities to engage in a process of information governance, something that isn’t so prohibitive or hard to manage that it never really gets adopted.
We’re Speaking at KMWorld!
