Do Statutes of Limitations Make Good Retention Periods? Here Are Some Things to Consider Even in heavily regulated industries, up to 40 percent of record series can lack legally mandated retention requirements. This still leaves records managers with a whole lot of records to figure out their useful business life. Where business requirements are short-lived, that nagging “in case we need it” voice often starts to speak up against a shorter retention period. To satisfy this voice, it can be tempting to find a statute of limitations to justify extending the retention period. Tying a retention period to a statute of limitation will be lauded if the records ...

Everything I Know About Records Information Management I Learned from a Parenting Book. Well, not everything, but a whole lot. And the book isn’t the kind of “how to make your toddler sleep through the night” fantasy you’re probably thinking of—it’s about the skills that children (and, as it turns out, adults) need to thrive in a complicated and uncertain future. But now that I’ve captured your attention, allow me some time to further explain. In   Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells Us About Raising Successful Children , child psychologists Kathy Hirsh-Pasek and Roberta Golinkoff argue that for today’s children, much about the world they will live in ...

On August 20, 2021, China adopted the   Personal Information Protection Law of the People’s Republic of China   (“PIPL”), its first comprehensive national data privacy law and one of the most sweeping and restrictive national privacy laws to date. Modeled largely off the GDPR and set to go into effect on November 1, the PIPL regulates personal information collected or transferred both inside and outside of China. It also comes with harsh penalties for non-compliance and gives broad powers to China’s state authorities to enforce the law. The PIPL is expected to significantly impact how companies (especially tech companies) do business in China. Aimed at protecting ...

Users need to manage content effectively from within the app to enable high-performing teams Has Microsoft Teams become your central hub for communicating, collaborating, and creating content? You’re in good company. The “always-open app” now has over 250 mm daily active users , and organizations are increasingly relying on Teams for enabling remote, in-office, and hybrid forms of modern work. However, if you’re like 97% of users, you may be severely underutilizing Teams . In fact, a recent Swoop Analytics report found that most people are heavily using Microsoft Teams for chat, calls, and meetings, but digital teaming features like channels, file sharing, ...

Research identifies common Microsoft 365 challenges – and we offer solutions What’s the biggest challenge with Microsoft 365 implementations these days? According to Colligo research, it’s a perfect three-way tie between: 1. content sprawl, 2. lack of governance controls, and 3. lack of metadata and labelling. While a few of our recent poll respondents cited a lack of buy-in or adoption and a lack of integration with Outlook, a whopping 87% selected one of the three information-governance-related options. Colligo Poll Results, October 2021   Our poll data falls in line with what we commonly hear from our customers. Things like: “We have ...

Since 1995, I have, as a workflow consultant, assisted over 300 clients ranging from 25 to 250,000 employees, across all industries and vendor platforms; with process improvement, and digital workflow planning including integration to related technologies such as capture, recognition, machine learning, content management, robotic process automation, AI, and electronic records management technologies.  What is great about digital workflow is instead of relying on phone calls, texts, email, or paper, a workflow can be triggered by a customer, internal request, automated task, or an event.  Then workflow can automate decisions, allow for parallel / sequential ...

Benefits and challenges of ECM. If properly planned for an electronic content management system (ECM) can provide organizational improvements from 20% to 75% in efficiency, quality, and service.  However, if not planned correctly, sprawl will occur, and you will wonder why you bothered.  The key to a successful ECM installation? An experienced consultant is to assist with planning, budgeting, vendor selection, and implementation management.  Why is ECM so complex?   An ECM system comprises many supporting technologies such as scan, capture, recognition, machine learning, artificial intelligence, content storage, integration to data systems, e-signature, workflow, ...

Superior flexibility, security, plus lower costs – modern work with Microsoft 365 is  more attractive than ever   Content management has changed. Long gone are the days when a legacy Enterprise Content Management system can cut it. A central catalyst for this change has been the introduction and mass adoption of cloud applications over the last decade.    Organizations who have moved either fully or mostly to the cloud are realizing the vast benefits and were likely better prepared for the pandemic and the shift to remote and hybrid work, according to AIIM . The scalability, security, and flexibility the cloud offers makes it an attractive ...

The definition of document management should be fairly easy to surmise. However, a peek under the hood of a document management system would reveal the intelligence that goes into something as seemingly straightforward as document management.  In fact, ‘management’ is merely one vague aspect of a system that is foundational to any digitally transformed enterprise. It involves capturing, storing, tracking, and routing documents through all the functions of an organization. At the same time, each document is indexed intelligently, made searchable and retrievable with ease. However, even that doesn’t tell you the entire story. While digital document ...

Searching For and Recreating Information is a Massive Time Waste   Microsoft recently published a report that says employees spend about 1 hour a day – up to 20 hours a month or up to 7 weeks a year – searching for or recreating information. The Spiceworks Ziff Davis’ research into knowledge sharing trends found that:   “Organizations can potentially save employees five to eight weeks of productivity a year, if employees can efficiently find and use the knowledge available to them.    On average, employees could potentially save between four to six hours each week if they didn’t have to search for information—or spend time ...

A Winning Formula for New Technology Adoption   Getting users to adopt new technology has traditionally been a struggle. After all, change can be hard. One bright spot of the COVID-19 pandemic is that new technology adoption levels have skyrocketed, particularly the adoption of cloud technology to enable remote work. As McKinsey aptly put it: “Digital adoption has taken a quantum leap at both the organizational and industry levels.”   But even while over 90% of organizations are using or plan to use Microsoft 365 in some capacity, and 93% of McKinsey survey respondents said their organizations had experienced an increase in remote working, ...
