There will always be turnover. Single-company lifetime careers have become a rarity, as talented workers seek relatively short but high-impact “tours of duty.” Retaining employee knowledge has evolved from being a nicety to being a mission-critical business requirement. How do we achieve it?
It is the middle of the summer, but it feels like spring at ZL. I can’t just attribute that to the year-round springy California weather, either (sorry, east coast). There is just a lot of newness, buzz, and excitement in the air. It’s not just our new analytics product; it’s that the company is in an exciting phase of growth.
The business world has gradually undergone a change in perspective, with the cloud morphing from a frantic buzzword to a functional reality -- even in large organizations. But as these cloud services and products become ever-more available and functional, it’s still crucial to keep a strategic focus on the overarching goals of the organization’s information governance framework and objectives...
Games of chance and luck inherently involve a risk. As with any risk there is also a reward. People play craps and the lottery because of what could be rather than what will most likely be. After all, if someone is going to hit the jackpot, why can’t it be me? This is the reason why Las Vegas and Atlantic City exist… not to mention Reno, if you’re particularly desperate...
The proliferation of email solutions in the cloud is due to quite a few moving parts: effective marketing campaigns, improvement in technology, and the cost benefits of economies of scale, to name a few. There is perhaps no single factor, however, that has had a larger benevolent effect on the growth of cloud email, than time...
They’re seductive in their simplicity, breaking down complex issues into bite-sized actionable chunks. This is exactly why I often preach against treating an information governance initiative like a checklist of tasks that need to be done. Because frankly, it’s never quite that simple.
In my opinion, the checklist mentality takes away from the holistic perspective that companies should adopt...
Ah flexibility! When did you leave me and where have you gone?
I used to be exceptionally limber. No, Really. I know I am one of millions who can make this claim, but I actually was really, really flexible at one point. Back in the day, I was playing just about every sport under the sun, but the one that was really keeping my flexibility up was karate...
Records management = information governance… right? Not so fast.
Today, these two concepts are still frequently confused and used interchangeably. It’s a shame, because in reality they are very different. Records management as it exists currently actually falls under the wider umbrella that is information governance.
History is to blame for our confusion, at least partially...
Unstructured data is becoming a very structured part of enterprise strategy. The content generated for humans by humans is the lifeblood of daily business, communicating everything from the information finalized in spreadsheets and reports, all the way to the chatter and mood entailed in IMs and email.
As this data grows in volume, it also grows in importance. The need to effectively manage it is not only an immediate requirement, but also a critical component of deriving future value from data.
This blog is an exploration of topics that influence information governance, and our observations of trends and business needs.
