Realizing information’s potential can only be accomplished if it’s built on a foundation that includes the technology on which information resides, the policies and processes that govern how information is used and the organizational change management practices.
We focus on building a customized information infrastructure that brings your company’s information chaos under control, and at the same time, creates value, and drives transformative business through effective change management.
We specialize in creating and implementing the policies, processes, and classification models that organize and govern the use of information throughout its life cycle. We design and deploy governance programs that enhance both collaboration and your productivity.
That you’re covered for today and tomorrow. It’s information that doesn’t disappear when someone leaves your company. It’s knowing that you’re on a strong foundation that also serves as a launching pad for new, bold endeavors. It’s the flexibility to keep your analytics and insights available as you grow, reposition, and evolve.
The first step to organizing is picking the right tools for the job.
Information management builds on records management and document management activities to create a comprehensive system of policies, processes, and tools designed to control and maintain information, so that its value can be leveraged throughout its useful life.
In reality, no. Content management systems are designed to keep track of the work that employees create in the course of business. To get the most value out of content management systems, they need to be designed and configured with your company’s information landscape in mind. Without the right implementation, they will not adequately control records, or systematically handle non-business information.
This depends on your organization’s structure and corporate culture, and how your company communicates its business standards and values. Commonly, information management resides in legal, risk management, compliance, or information technology functions. Increasingly, organizations are creating a separate information-oriented executive office, headed by a Chief Information Officer or Chief Data Officer.
We establish a scalable governance structure with processes, classification schemes, and useful tools for managing information at the source.
To improve user adoption, we recruit individuals from across the organization to actively participate in program activities and improvement. This also enables rapid response to changing business needs and regulatory requirements, maintaining the momentum of implementation.
To reduce operating costs and minimize an organization’s information footprint, we develop a streamlined program for employees to create, access, use, and dispose of information throughout the information lifecycle. Our team researches the legal and regulatory retention requirements that apply to your organization, in order to define and implement defensible disposition of physical and electronic information. This allows the organization to derive cost savings wherever the information management program touches. The better you understand the information you create and use, the more value you can realize.
