Information governance requires knowing where information lives across a distributed content landscape, where new systems come on, others are decommissioned and data migrates. Yet, sixty percent of records and information management professionals say their lack of an information map is an issue*. When you manually track of all of the places you store information, it quickly becomes out of date.
Whether you're preparing for eDiscovery requests, a merger, acquisition or divestiture; mapping information as it relates to policy; mapping IT systems; or looking to make informed information governance decisions, you need experts to help you through the information mapping process. Once you know what information you have and where it lives, you then know where you need to apply policy.
