What if you could truly enable an Open Government?

In today’s technology-driven world, the term “record” no longer equates to paper documents, time stamps, and hand written letters or notes. In 2012, the Obama Administration prioritized records and information management by mandating a more open government – being the first seated President to do so since the Truman Administration in 1946.

With the introduction of more information formats creating exponential records growth, the need for an evolution of records and information management (RIM) is more critical than ever. A recent landmark survey of government records management executives asserted that overspending and growing RIM costs are unsustainable – with RIM spending expected to more than double per agency between 2013 and 2015.

With the Presidential Directive on Managing Government Records in place as well as added pressure from other market drivers such as the Open Data Policy, Freeze the Footprint Policy and Data Center Consolidation Mandate, federal agencies are seeking ways to improve information asset management while decreasing their physical footprint.

In today’s challenging federal landscape, what if you could…

  • Effectively manage the growing volumes of data your federal agency is seeing?
  • Meet the Presidential Directive deadlines on time and within budget?
  • Free up valuable real estate and ensure your agency can adhere to the “Freeze the Footprint policy?
  • Be confident that your records management policies are consistently applied and you are defensibly destroying records past retention?
