And Yet More Mumbo Jumbo about Information Governance

1MumboJumbo - And Yet More Mumbo Jumbo about Information GovernanceOk, I haven’t even read the article yet. The description in the email I received tells me that I can learn from experts on how to tackle Information Governance – the new ‘must have’ to succeed. I’m not against good advice, nor practical, doable, and workable solutions. I have yet to read an article that actually explains through a case study, or experience the actual ‘how’ to information. It’s pretty much mumbo jumbo. In other words, I would like to know the good, the bad, and the ugly.

According to IG Initiatives 2014 Annual Report, the cost of an information governance project for a 5,000-10,000 employee company is $2,417,000. (No that’s not a typo). That’s a tough ROI to justify unless broken down into application challenges that can be solved and processes that can be improved. You don’t hear the cost battered about much in any articles. For many, if not most organizations, it just isn’t affordable or justifiable.

Don’t get me wrong I am a great proponent of Information Governance, I just feel that everyone’s talking about it in a vague way on why organizations should do it, not how.

Can anyone provide real-life experiences or advice for those organizations that do have $2,417,000 to spend?
