The growth of content is out of control.

The majority of people (68 percent) stated that the explosion in content is adding greater complexity to an already complex world and causing real storage issues and costs. At the same time, over one half of companies say they are under pressure to cut costs spent on IM processes and systems. Fully two thirds of companies have some form of manual based approach, to their IM, whilst full automation is applicable in only just over one third of companies.

Storage of data is not consistent. Three in ten companies use a single data storage center, around the same proportion take a site/location approach, and again the same proportion use central data silos. The vast majority overall (93 percent) say business growth/M&A are an obstacle of some sort. Nearly two thirds cite that business growth/mergers and acquisitions is at least a significant obstacle to the efficient business critical information management lifecycle.

One of the dirty little secrets of enterprise IT is that information is not all that well managed. IT organizations process and store data. But rarely is there a holistic approach in place to manage it. The end result is that IT costs spiral out of control.

A new survey of 641 business and IT leaders, conducted by the market research firm Coleman Parkes on behalf of Hewlett-Packard, finds that there is broad recognition of the problems associated with information management, but very little consensus about what exactly should be done to alleviate it.
