You mean I could lose my job?
Gartner predicts by 2016, 20% of CIOs in regulated industries will lose their jobs for failing to implement the discipline of information governance successfully. Information Governance is a hot topic, especially for the CIO. Information Governance is all encompassing and the goal is to maximize the value of corporate information, while at the same time reduce risks, ensure compliance, and minimize costs.
The third building block in our Smart Content Framework™ is Governance. It consists of tools that ensure information quality, maintains the lifecycle of information, addresses the retention and disposition of records, secures and protects privacy, and establishes standards when dealing with information assets including unstructured content. Information governance requires much more than technology though. It requires commitment from C-level down to the end user and encompasses the entire organization. An information governance plan is not easy, and it’s easy to get stuck along the way. Not only are you changing the way people do their jobs, but also changing the culture and future of the organization.
Sound Information Governance can assist organizations in managing and balancing regulatory requirements, the risks and costs, while ensuring that knowledge workers can be productive. It is not only the management of content to reduce risk but the ability for the organization to make better business decisions and increase agility.
