Information technology presents unique challenges, which simply do not exist in other parts of our lives.  For example: Can you imagine placing different manufactures and tires sizes on your vehicle?  How about a different door handle and lock for each room in your home?  Of course not, the performance of our vehicle would suffer, and key management in our home would become a daunting task.  Now let’s merge the rate of emerging technology with the longevity and cost of technology, and we have the perfect challenge:  How do we effectively manage an IT infrastructure?

Remember the good old days, when cybercrime was mostly about mischievous programmers wreaking a little havoc? Those were simpler times indeed. Today, cybercrime has become a global phenomenon, fueled by big money bounties, intensifying political unrest, and organized mobsters hiding in the nether regions of the deep web.

I don’t know about you, but when I finish my time at a conference, I often feel a bit let down. Often, I find myself sorting through what I heard or learned, looking for one or maybe two pearls of wisdom. But last week, I was amazed when I actually got 10 great pieces of wisdom that could be useful to anyone trying to be digital disruptor at their firm. One thing before, I get started. To protect the innocent, I will only accredit names to those that would be fine with me sharing what they said publically. So let’s get started.

Information Governance is Not a Fad

Why the ‘Keep Everything Forever’ Approach Won’t Fly

Blog-post by Robert Smallwood, Mon, 05/11/2015 - 20:41

The ranks of the information governance (IG) community are stirring. A debate is taking place. Recently there has been a concept floated by some thought leaders in IG which contends that we are moving to a world where we retain all information—forever.

Some even contend that IG is just a fad and advances in search technology will soon eliminate the need for IG. The arguments go something like this:

CIO’s should take the twofer

Blog-post by Myles Suer, Mon, 05/11/2015 - 17:52

CIOs that I have talk to are searching for a better way to connecting what “IT is doing to business strategy”. To do this, more and more CIOs say they are putting even more attention upon “line of business alignment”. As a goal, these CIOs want to get their CFO to understand that technology is not a cost center and the rest of the organization to understand that IT is a part of the business too. A major part of this is getting business leaders to understand technology better.

Information Governance: How IG Got Slanted, Distorted, & Mangled

The Long Strange Trip Toward Defining IG

Blog-post by Robert Smallwood, Mon, 04/27/2015 - 20:36

I spoke to a few groups last week, from small to large, on the west and east coast. Each group was a key target audience for information governance (IG) education, products, and services and each time I asked if anyone in the audience had a clear, one sentence definition of IG -- no one volunteered.

Blog-post by Myles Suer, Mon, 04/20/2015 - 18:27

In a recent Inc. Magazine article, Ilan Mochari claims that “the use of analytics is commonplace—to the point where it’s no longer easy to sustain an advantage by using them”. Given this, Ilan asserts that analytics do not necessarily create a long term advantage. Ilan’s article is based upon the scholarly research by Peter C. Bell, a professor of management science at the Ivey Business School.

Favorable Outlook Ahead for M&E Despite The Advancing Web-Scale Data Storm

Blog-post by Chris Gladwin, Thu, 04/16/2015 - 01:19

Preparing for data storage in the future can feel like the onset of a heavy rainstorm – what starts as a slow sprinkling quickly becomes a steady downpour. Before you know it, there’s more water than can be collected, leaks start to appear and your methods for staying dry are no longer functional. Showers that escalate into consistent streams of heavy volume precipitation can easily create damage, if the water can’t be captured in a reservoir to properly store it.
