What if you could meet your information management challenges more effectively?
With the Presidential Directive on Managing Government Records in place, and added pressure from additional federal initiatives like the Open Data Policy, Reduce the Footprint Policy and Data Center Optimization Mandate, we help US federal agencies improve information asset management while reducing their physical footprint and decreasing operational costs.
Redefine “Record.” And Policy.
The term “record” no longer solely equates to paper documents, time stamps, and handwritten letters or notes, according to the amended Federal Records Act of 2014 (H.R 1233). And, as more types of digital information formats are introduced, including social media and instant messages, organizations continue to face exponential records growth. With the sheer volume of information assets that need to be managed, combined with the pressures of converging federal initiatives, constrained budgets and resources, the need for an evolution of records and information management is more critical than ever.
The Information Landscape is Changing Quickly.
A recent Iron Mountain study shows federal agency records are at risk, with only 15% of respondents reporting that current records policies are meeting their agency's needs. Other top challenges notated by respondents included tremendous growth of records, and awareness of policies and procedures. And a more recent 2016 study reveals that agencies are not prepared to address this growing information management need with its current staffing, skill sets and processes.
