Recently, ARMA International held its 59th Annual Conference & Expo in San Diego, California, bringing together professionals in the records and information management industry with organizations interested in bolstering their information governance policies. In today's business environment, it's crucial that corporate documents are governed to ensure that organizations remain competitive and compliant. As the mountain of information grows, so does the burden to manage it and avoid the risks associated with mismanagement.
One of the major trends coming out of ARMA 2014 was the notion of transitioning from records management to information governance. The digital age has presented a host of new challenges with regards to managing electronic information, challenges that are not being addressed by the practices long used for physical records. The transition to information governance is necessary given that records management has its roots and practices based in managing physical files and papers, while information governance is centered on looking after and making decisions about an organization's information assets, throughout its entire lifecycle.
This slideshow features information governance trends and best practices from the industry's top players at this year's ARMA conference, as identified by Bassam Zarkout, CTO, RSD.
