How to Position your Information Management (IM) Program for Strategic Success


Are you effectively communicating with stakeholders to maintain support for your Program?

Are you getting a complete picture to manage Program risks effectively?

Do you have enterprise visibility into your content in order to establish effective controls?

Do you struggle with creating a compelling story for remediating gaps in your Program?

At any point in time, IM practitioners may be developing a new Program or assessing an existing Program for continuous improvement. In this workshop, we will present a framework for success that ensures your IM Program is sustainable and aligned to business goals.  It includes an exercise in data mapping, which is an important foundation for sustainability. Attendees will learn techniques that they can use to develop or adjust their Program to ensure it meets the needs of their organization, and as Goldilocks would say, “it’s just-right.”

Takeaways for attendees will include the 5 key elements for strategic program development.

Records Management and Microsoft Teams in a Modern Unstructured World

Jack Kim

O365 Technical Architect, Long View Systems

Microsoft Teams is revolutionizing modern corporate collaboration and content creation. Teams is a social collaboration solution that contains unstructured content similar to Facebook and Twitter. Some might say Teams itself is unstructured.  How do you manage in-place records that are in channels, chats, and files? The Long View Systems team has been working in the SharePoint records management space in Colorado for many years, including integration with Documentum (now OpenText), Laserfiche and fully-deployed SharePoint-based records management farms. Long View Systems will share how it leverages the Microsoft Teams environment specifically for collaborating on records that live outside of the corporate environment, such as mentions in Twitter or Facebook. This will include how we use Teams to apply audit log search, eDiscovery, and legal holds for channels, chats, and files
