A recent post from ARMA espouses the importance of the U.S. federal agencies properly addressing records and information governance rules concerns earlier in the development process. As we've written before, a proactive approach to information governance is critical. ARMA International President Peter Kurilecz wrote a letter in fact, to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This was in response to proposed revisions to the government's rules concerning information governance rules.
A little while back, we published a post with some highlights about ARMA 2015. This post is a little more personal and about my experience as someone attending their first #ARMA convention. By way of introduction, my name is Andrew Borgschulte and I am the Marketing Manager for RecordLion. I have been in marketing my entire career, but have only been in the records management and information governance space since the end of July when I joined the RecordLion team. It has been an incredible learning experience and I have gained an understanding of an area that is vital to every business, yet often goes unseen.
This year's #ARMA Live 2015 conference was an exciting gathering of industry experts, records managers, and vendors of all sizes. Coming together once a year to understand the latest trends and topics as well as discuss the future of the industry is an important part of moving information governance forward. Below are some highlights that stood out:
According to a recent survey conducted by Cohasset Associates, ARMA International and AIIM; the majority of organizations (87% overall; 95% of large organizations) have a records and information management program. Despite the varied options that exist, however, many of these organizations are still struggling to govern information effectively.
