Alfresco Software has introduced new information governance capabilities for the Alfresco Digital Business Platform. KM World brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “Alfresco boosts information governance capabilities in platform update.”

Information governance is a holistic approach to managing corporate information by implementing processes, roles, controls, and metrics that treat information as a valuable business asset.

Alfresco is updating its Alfresco Governance Services including new Federation Services that enable ‘Manage in Place’ records management, enhanced its E-Discovery and ‘Legal Hold’ with artificial Intelligence (AI), and added Governance to Desktop Synchronization.

This will help users to conduct a search across multiple, disparate databases from a single application and without the need for content migration, as well as search, view and manage content from Alfresco and non-Alfresco repositories from a single search user interface.

Information governance has become as essential to corporate functions as compliance, business processes and customer outreach. More and more companies have begun to employ chief information governance officers to lead information governance programs and projects
