Information governance is BIG.

And not just big in the sense of “big data.” It’s a big concept that means many things to many people… all depending on the nature of their organization, the main business drivers of their organization, and their own role within that organization.

In simple terms, “big” may be a simple adjective, but it’s certainly not a simple issue. Everyone’s business environment is unique, so there’s no blueprint for success. Even the most forward-leaning organizations can struggle to pull together an IG strategy that’s both designed to be long-term, effective, and profitable.

So in an effort to detangle the true data management implications of “big,” the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) issues an annual survey of information governance practices in the real world. And this year, ZL is proud to help support them in that effort. ILTA itself is naturally focused on the intersection of legal practices and technology, but this overlap inherently loops in multiple roles and units within the business. You might be included.

No need to be a member of ILTA to participate! If you have a role in the information governance process -- from IT to records to legal to leadership – your experiences will help!

All responses are anonymous, and survey completion should take about 10 minutes.

With a better understanding of the real IG challenges within organizations, organizations such as ILTA can better develop meaningful materials and guidance to help practitioners and business leaders. We hope you help out!

Technology marketing strategist, obscure knowledge enthusiast, Duke fan, long-time dabbling musician. I have a background that is as diverse as my interests, including undergraduate focus on neuroscience and psychology, a master’s in management, plus a work/internship background in the biomedical research field and clinical trial software. Information governance matters to me because information matters to me. Knowledge that you can’t retrieve is knowledge that you don’t have. I like to focus on high-level trends and the steadily growing business value of unstructured content.
