Records managers face escalating volumes of unstructured data – while also struggling to meet current management demands that include: e-discovery, compliance, storage optimization, and general information governance. Additionally, the new trend of repurposing this data for business analytics further complicates governance.
The goal of this session is to prepare you to discuss information governance and analytics within your organization and how their rapid converge is transforming the field of records management.
This session also will provide you with a better understanding of the RIM professional’s role in this new big data environment – and you can enhance your career prospects by selecting and acquiring specific skills.

We’re on the cusp of an era that demands a more holistic, flexible, and inclusive approach to governance of digital business content. Data is a living resource rather than a just a static snapshot. Records managers are poised to be essential curators in this environment, setting guidelines that matter to all parties that interact with the data landscape.
This guest post on the MER blog explores how we can learn a thing or two about RIM from the natural world, and how the US National Parks and US National Forests provide insight into resource management philosophy. For records professionals, the lesson learned is one of protectionism vs. pragmatism strategy in handling digital content.
