The Iron Mountain Federal Data Management Model: Protecting Electronic Federal Information
Maintaining secure, uninterrupted, and cost
effective access to information is essential
to digital government. With the rapid
growth of electronic data and tightened
government budgets, the information
management challenges that your agency
faces, continue to become more difficult.
Records management (RM) and IT
legislation add to the challenging federal
landscape and impact how managing
electronic data is approached. You need
to be on top of new and ever changing
requirements and legislation in order to
be compliant. Today when you are asked
to do more with less, solving for agency
constraints of legislation requirements
like reducing federal building space and
civilian real estate inventory, converting
permanent records into electronic formats,
implementing cloud computing, reducing
data center costs, increasing accessibility
to federal agency records, promoting
openness and interoperability, and ensuring
preservation and continuity of government
functions are necessary for the success
of your business. How can you go about
implementing these changes?
How This Affects You
Managing vast volumes of information requires a sizeable
infrastructure — as well as time-consuming processes that can be
a drain on already limited government resources. Agencies need
to make smart decisions about how and where to store data, to
ensure that information is both safe and accessible for the long
term. Government needs an approach to maintain and access data
that fulfills these critical policies in a cost effective way, while also
modernizing data management programs, and identifying ways to
create operational efficiencies.
