Navigate the COVID-19 Digital Transformation with Solid Information Governance

HOBOKEN, N.J., July 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and information governance consultant, shares the role of information governance in creating an effective COVID-19 digital transformation roadmap in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article discusses the disruption of COVID-19 and the need for a digital transformation roadmap. The author reviews the growth of unstructured data, program governance and records and information management principles. He concludes by urging business leaders to enlist the help of a qualified information governance consultant.

"Quickly adapting to the changing conditions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic is a matter of survival for many organizations," stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. "Work-from-home technology and policies provide a lifeline for companies and employees alike."

Below are a few excerpts from the article, "Navigate the COVID-19 Digital Transformation with Solid Information Governance ."

Roadmap Needed

"Companies must be agile to survive shocks and changes in markets and consumer behavior to ensure their long-term success. Yet, remote work requires long-term strategies to generate the efficiency and anywhere access required. Corporate cloud migrations and office space resizing come to mind."

"Hence, organizations should develop a digital transformation roadmap to ensure that they arrive at their intended destination. Building that roadmap on a foundation of solid information governance ensures long-term compliance, greater efficiency and making use of the full value of the organization's data."

Unstructured Data

"Growing at the rate of 62% per year, unstructured data carries significant cost and risk implications for organizations. It currently finds a home in hundreds of different formats in hard-to-reach systems, like Microsoft 365, SharePoint, zip files, and other places. Despite this data sprawl, organizations still must ensure compliant information in every location."

"Your digital transformation roadmap and information governance policy must address both structured and unstructured data. Therefore, approach data and records management with a clear and comprehensive plan that will reduce your organization's risk and growth of unstructured data."

Enlist an IG Partner

The current high volume of regulations and rapid technology change make effective information governance challenging. Consistent effort drives progress. Organizations that also partner with an information governance expert stand to achieve excellent, timely results while minimizing overall cost.
