Data Governance & Records Management: A Practical Program Approach

We live in a world where data has assumed a position of immense value in the economy. Cloud, mobility, cognitive computing, data science, artificial intelligence, robotics, deep learning & Internet of Things (IoT) all may be “hot topics” in the industry lately, but actually it is data that fuels the innovation that these “hot & emerging technologies” unleash.

Organizational data can take on a variety of forms – anywhere from structured data in databases, unstructured electronic content found on network file shares and document management repositories, to physical content residing in large and costly warehouses.

One of the biggest challenges in implementing and sustaining a data governance and records management program is determining the real impact the program can make to the organization. The concept of data as an asset drives the need for dedicated Program efforts to develop the ‘framework of care’. This presentation aims at sharing thinking on developing and implementing a practical and achievable Program that couples both data governance and records management.
