Unified Information Governance and Discovery Framework

Big dataThere has been a lot of talk about the importance of information governance including the framework developed by EDRM. Recently, another approach was developed by eThemis called the Unified Information Governance and Discovery Framework (UIGDF). It was designed to address how data flows within the corporation from the vantage point of the records life cycle.

They identified five key functional areas:

1. Information governance forces framework;

2. Operations management;

3. Preserve;

4. Selection; and

5. Produce/retire.

The UIGDF is an attempt to establish a proactive framework that organizations can leverage, regardless of industry vertical, to effectively manage the massive volumes of data in their possession.

The devil is always in the details and what I like about this approach, is that they have actually developed a granular workflow for implementing IG policy and process.
