Our friends at AIIM will be kick starting October with a cross country Information Chaos Rescue Mission. The enterprise is suffering from a bad case of the ROT - drowning in information that’s Redundant, Outdated or Trivial. Even worse, it’s scattered across multiple drives which makes it impossible to identify, capture, classify and dispose of. Organizations are realizing their processes are broken, they’re not leveraging business insight from information, and they’re barely managing their business risk.
What happened to the promise of ECM? Despite being a mature market, less than 1% of organizations worldwide have an end-to-end ECM solution deployed across functional areas. In fact 33% of organizations are sitting on 5 or more unique systems.
What’s the Answer?
The enterprise needs to realize Information Governance is not a destination so much as a journey. We need to consider how we manage information. Sure, storage may be cheap to buy, but consider that while 1 GB of storage costs 20 cents to purchase it will cost the organization $3,500.00 to search and review.
Shinydrive isn’t another repository to store your data. We don’t care if you live in the cloud with Box or are entrenched behind your firewall with OpenText. Shinydrive is about connecting all your data repositories and making them accessible on the desktop. Bam - federated search. Xrefs and relational linkages solved. Drag and drop. Users no longer have to wrestle with web-based tools, they can just save to the ECM as if it were a shared drive. All your enterprise information available as if it were on the desktop.
IT gets what they want as well. With all the repositories connected they control where the information gets routed. With a flick of a switch, unstructured data can be migrated to the ECM in a process that’s invisible to the end user. There’s no application training, no downtime, no broken links. They can sunset legacy stores, move information into compliance and really start to address the chaos.
Hear real world success stories at the one-day Information Chaos Rescue Mission throughout the month of October in Anaheim, Arlington, New York City, Toronto, Chicago and Minneapolis. It’s free to attend and there will be some great insight in store.
