ARMA Live! San Antonio
ARMA Live! Conference is always a great conference and we had some great discussions around information governance, file analysis and analytics in San Antonio, Texas.
This year, we showed you what Star Trek has to do with information governance and hope you enjoyed the surprise visit from Scotty during the keynote session on Day 1. In case you missed it, you can watch the recording below.
We’d love to continue the conversation and are offering ARMA attendees free 30 minute consultations. Sign up here.
ZL Session Recap:
Keynote – Governance and Analytics: Convergence or Collision?
Sunday, September 25, 2016 | 9:00 AM
Governance has a built-in bias toward keeping less data, which seems prudent for reducing exposure. Analytics, on the other hand, prefers keeping more data; since no one really knows which questions will arise in the future, the more data that’s retained, the better the insights to be gained. The resulting conflict between keeping less versus more data is creating tension within enterprises. Is there a way to satisfy both sides of this policy divide?
Education Session – Governance of File Shares: Are We There Yet?
Monday, September 26, 2016 | 2:40 – 3:30 PM
Venue: Room 206
File shares are the cluttered garages of the enterprise; everyone depends on them to work and store materials, but no one wants to be responsible for their clean-up and management. The failure to do so creates impending risk for security, risk, and productivity… but when it comes to driving proactive governance, most businesses don’t even have keys in the ignition.
The paradox of the file share is that user dependence has hindered proactive efforts at control. The highly unstructured and textual nature of file share data means items are easily copied, duplicated, and scattered. File share habits have always been difficult to steer, but in the big data era, the enterprise has lost control of the wheel.
