The IG community has told us that one of the most valuable things we can do for them is simply to share stories about how IG is getting done. This is exactly what we are trying to achieve with a new series of IG Snapshots based on our extensive benchmarking work. IG Snapshots tell a quick, real-world IG story and highlight the IT and management insights illuminated by the story. In our Executive Briefing Series supported by OpenText, we take a look inside five information governance programs to learn how practitioners are handling real life IG challenges.
In our previous IG Snapshot of the series, we saw how Dan, an IG practitioner at a large pharmaceutical company is using what he knows about e-discovery to build a world-class IG program. In today’s IG Snapshot, we learn how Holly, the head of a mature and successful IG program at a large technology company, is trying to keep ahead of the curve at a company whose IG environment is moving at lightning speed.
Holly’s company is in the business of creating ideas and bringing them to market in a very fast-moving and competitive environment. The core activity at the organization is smart people collaborating with each other, and Holly must avoid doing anything to add friction to those processes as part of IG. Among the challenges Holly faces are that many messaging, communication, and collaboration services were designed with speed and convenience in mind, not IG. The company’s corporate IT and security groups are also biased toward openness and innovation. Holly’s challenge is operating in an environment where the cat is already out of the bag, so to speak. Learn how she is facing this challenge by taking an intelligent, risk and value focused approach to IG.
