Information Governance – Is this new?
I just read an interesting article, actually from one of our quasi competitors. Actually it was, for the most part, a very good article. What did strike me is the author claimed that ‘information governance was an ‘emerging concept’. That came as a surprise to me, although the term is being bandied about everywhere now, is it really an emerging concept?
What also struck me was the requirement to do a business case to justify information governance. Obviously I realize that costs/benefits analysis would be required but to me it seems like a no brainer. But that’s just me. The real work is getting everyone on board and agreeing and cooperating.
This piqued my curiosity. Do you view information governance as an emerging concept? Have you developed a business case to justify the costs and projected benefits? Did it sell internally?
