Edison, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/22/2014 -- The 2-20 Family of Companies is pleased to introduce their latest blog, focusing on understanding the similarities and differences between Information Governance and Records Management. The blog can be read in its entirety at: http://smartstoragesolutions.wordpress.com/?p=605&preview=true.
Blog writer, Ilona N. Koti is a resident information governance expert who goes way beyond explaining definitions and discussions on why people may want to include the term, “information governance” on their resume. Ilona also answers why information governance has such an impact on the records community.
According to ARMA International, the definition of records and information management (RIM) is, “the field of management responsible for the efficient and systematic control of the creation, receipt, maintenance, use, and disposition of records, including processes for capturing and maintaining evidence of and information about business activities and transactions in the form of records.”
The term, “information governance,” was coined approximately five years ago by Gartner consulting firm. According to the firm, information governance can be defined as “the specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to encourage desirable behavior in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archival and deletion of information.” Information Governance includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the efficient and effective use of information in enabling organizations to meet their specific goals.
In the blog, Ilona states that records management will always be a founding cornerstone of information governance because it is the strategic wheel that reinforces the departmental cogs of any organization.
