In this white paper series, we describe a proven process for undertaking an information governance project - we call that process the Corporate Information Governance Program (CIGP).

This white paper will teach you how to:

  • Identify stakeholders and project sponsors
  • Understand business objectives
  • Understand user needs
  • Inventory information systems
  • Identify information governance committee participants

Over the next several months, this series will be delving into each of the four distinct phases of the framework. Check back for installments 2, 3 and 4 in the coming months.

In most companies, scanning paper documents has become a routine task when handling incoming mail. Multifunction printers (MFP) or high-performance scanners are used for this purpose, depending on the type and volume of paper documents received. The 3-Heights™ Scan Server is a central service that converts locally scanned files and associated index data into the standardized PDF/A file format. The service performs all tasks that can be delegated to it by the local scanning station because either they don’t require any user interaction or they impair the efficiency of the local scanning stations with CPU-intensive functions (OCR, compression).

Companies spend a lot of time evaluating different platforms when selecting their enterprise social software, but few take the time to worry about how to effectively put it into production. We’ll take a look at best practices for successfully rolling IBM Connections out to users within organizations. I’m not referring to the technical specifications required for setting up and installing the system, I’m referring to the end-user experience. Getting your users to implement and love the new technology, as well as make it part of their daily routine, is the goal.

In this white paper, I will discuss the 7 guidelines for deploying a successful IBM Connections environment:

  • Get management buy-in
  • Build focus group(s)
  • Provide training
  • Encourage the adoption
  • Reward use
  • Follow-up training
  • Prepare for the bumps in the road

How about a quick game of word association? What are the first words you would associate with records management?Compliance? Obligation? Regulation? What if I were to ask who the main beneficiaries of a corporate records management programme should be? Chances are, you’ll think management, lawyers and auditors.

So is RIM merely an exercise in risk management? It is tempting for records managers to take comfort from that idea. If RIM is inextricably linked to corporate accountability and good governance that must ensure a continued relevance to management,
regardless of fluctuating trends in business or technology? Is it time to reposition your Records Management offer?

With increasing global competition and regulatory requirements, organizations have found it critical to find an efficient enterprise content management system. ECM or Enterprise Content management comprises of tools which are used to capture, manage, preserve and reproduce content which is related to all functions and processes within an organisation. Wherever there is unstructured information, ECM allows the management of its lifecycle from Creation to Archival/Destruction.

At a fundamental level enterprises struggle with managing content assets which stems from the end user’s inability to accurately and consistently tag content for search, re-use, storage, records identification, and archival purposes. Most organizations focus on relying on the end user for appropriate metadata tagging. Typical software applications still lack the ability to fully extract the concepts within content nor do they have the flexibility to be applied to multiple business disciplines. A pragmatic, easy to deploy approach should be evaluated that provides a rapid return on investment. This effectively overcomes the typical academic approach where complex ontologies are used and become difficult to deploy, manage, and maintain.

Creating metadata repositories and taxonomies that are optimized for the organization is challenging, as each participant in the process, and every end user may have a different way of expressing the same or similar descriptors (metadata). The goal is to not only give people the right information, but distilled from a variety of distinct content making available useable knowledge.
