Mark your calendars today to plan on attending the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) conference on March 18-20, 2015 in sunny San Diego, California. This unique moment in time when the acceleration of technology change is forcing organizations to reinvent themselves, new approaches are needed. You can find those at the AIIM Conference 2015 and help your organization embrace the chaos.
Data in every form, including digital and print, is growing at an exponential rate. According to the National Science Foundation, 90 percent of the data in existence today was created in the last two years. This interesting information was found on Federal News Radio in their article, “Data retention & records management.” The Presidential Directive on Managing Government Records, and initiatives such as the Open Data Policy, have begun to address this critical situation, but this is only the beginning.
AirVault recently announced that Frontier Airlines has licensed the AirVault Records Management Solution as its new, web-based record management system for aircraft maintenance and business operations.
We have all heard the story about the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official who while under investigation for allegedly mistreating Tea Party groups seeking tax exemptions, lost copies of her emails when her hard drive crashed. There are many questions about this that come to mind, but the most practical one would be – why is she backing up emails on a PC? The government has what appears to be unlimited resources when it wants it, yet they don’t have such easily accessible technology as cloud storage?
Abundance – the word of the year, maybe the decade. That is no different in the world of data. We have computers capable of processing the vast and complex data, and thanks to the clouds, our storage capabilities appear to be endless. But is this a false sense of security?
Most organizations, regardless of their size or tenure, do not realize the difference between robust document management and “folders in the cloud.” Making content findable is the goal of any document management strategy.
We talk a lot about big data. Its continued increase in quantity and need for additional storage, and many other issues surrounding the issue. What we don’t see much is the need for a solid relationship between big data and the enterprise system.
2013 was all about the clouds – making the most of storage and sharing, searching and finding, access and metadata trails. Metadata rose to the top of any most talked about word cloud due to Edward Snowden and the NSA. Metadata is all the information that surrounds a file, including the filename, when it was uploaded, who it was shared with, and when it was accessed. The NSA’s metadata collection program proves that such information can be extremely valuable.
Archive Management Systems (AMS) is incorporating ibml’s SoftTrac Capture Suite software and ImageTrac scanner in their recent production scanning and document capture solution.
Most companies are worried that their existing data storage and backup plans will not provide the protection they know they need. Many organizations’ vital business data is being generated and stored on various devices, even individual employees’ personal thumb drives. Most of these devices have little to no backup process in place.
