Life used to be simple – information was very well structured, lived in a handful of well-managed physical and electronic repositories and the life of the Records Manager was straightforward. Over the past decade, organizations have amassed vast quantities of business information, dispersed and scattered – each with its own regulatory and legal requirements causing organizations to be behind when it comes to governing their information assets. Progressing to information governance should not be deferred.
