Management

Information Management

Overview

The large array of data volumes and varieties can pose a challenge for collecting, storing, and processing for many organizations. Only focusing on these factors results in a lot of wasted time and an unnecessary emphasis on technology.

Information Technology (IT) organizations in the past have been primarily focused on delivering Information Technologies and not necessarily focused on the holistic management of information and its associated lifecycle. The discipline of Information Management focuses on the information lifecycle as a business to accomplish an entity’s objectives.

Information Governance

Overview

Governance is the processes, tools, and overall accountability framework for information's availability, usability, integrity, and security employed by an enterprise to maximize the value of information while minimizing risks and costs.

IT typically owns the technologies and systems employed to create and store data and information, but they do not own the information or really understand its meaning and value to the business. Their role is to manage the information technologies such as hardware, software, and networks.

Information Governance (IG) and its associated accountabilities is a business matter, rather than an IT matter. The functional units that produce and use information understand the information value, compliance needs, versioning, and other business continuity requirements. Business units continue piling up more and more data every year and hope nothing bad happens. Hope is not a strategy and asking a business unit to pay attention to their own information governance is often viewed as a waste of time. This perpetuates the cycle of “this is not my job, buy more disk space” and the “haystack” grows.

A comprehensive information governance program includes a governing body that ensures people, processes, technologies, standards, security and management of a company’s information assets is effective and efficient for its operations. Without proper information governance, there is a potential of improperly managed costs, risks, efficiencies, production and optimizing customer experiences.

Typically Information Governance is driven by legal & compliance, optimized discovery, privacy & security, productivity & collaboration, and a defensible disposition. Regardless of the driver(s), proper information governance drives optimizes your value from your information investments.
