Managing Data Remediation: Part Two of Canon Article Series on Information Governance
by Ken Neal
September 27, 2017
I’d like to share the second article in a series adapted from the new eBook we recently issued, “Minimize Business Risk: Top 5 Information Governance Obstacles You Must Tackle Now.” The eBook was sponsored by Canon Business Process Services and written by AIIM, the association that provides independent research, education and certification programs to information professionals.
The key takeaway from this second article is that effectively managing data remediation should be at the heart of your information governance program. Employees are using shared and personal hard drives as well as other devices for data storage, making it more and more difficult to manage the massive amount of information being created and stored. Under these conditions, there is no redundant, outdated, or trivial content elimination, no consistency in storage syntax and naming conventions, and no data cleansing. The most effective approach to data remediation is one that is proactive and forward thinking rather than reactive and short sighted.
