We’ve seen the emergence of Big Data Analytics. And we all thought RIM was so yesterday. Well, not so fast. As more silos of Big Data are created, they create more risks: silos are hard to manage; data access privileges are undefined; audit trails are non-existent; and the enterprise risk guardians are blind to the contents, which are vulnerable to discovery. All of this results in data anarchy, pitting governance against analytics. Can Big RIM save the day?
Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 | 10:40-11:30 AM |National Harbor 10-11
Gathering Big Data for analytics creates more data silos and exacerbates risk, because the enterprise risk guardians are mostly blind to the contents of these silos, which remain vulnerable to discovery by regulators and litigators. There is a dire need for “adult supervision” in Big Data analytics. This session examines how this can be achieved through a unified Information Governance approach, which expands RIM far beyond business records to manage Big Data across the enterprise.

Getting your information governance program off the ground is quite an accomplishment. However, enabling your organization to embrace necessary changes may not be so easy. When transitioning to any new platform or business process, including a comprehensive plan for change management and business enablement can significantly increase your chances for success. This session will discuss both the technology and human elements of a business change enablement plan and how these can make-or-break your information governance program.
