Online Information 2009 – A success

The themes of Online 2009 were focused around the coming together of the pragmatic semantic web and the social web to create an online world with unparalleled opportunities for the library and information professions. 

 Judging from the feedback from many delegates, the conference structure and content worked well and there are many heads brimming full of ideas travelling back to the workplace tomorrow – hopefully to translate ideas into action.

Having retired from the Chairmanship today, I’d like to place on record my thanks to Lorna Candy the conference organiser and to the conference committee for their inspiration and support in devising the programme.  I know that my successor Steve Dale will find their continued support the key to success with Online 2010.

The future of Enterprise Information Governance

EMC Corporation, have just released another of their excellent Enterprise Information Management studies, this one undertaken by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The Future of Enterprise Information Governance provides an insight into the mindsets of senior executives in the firms surveyed.

Information is the life blood of any modern-day business. Companies succeed or falter based on the reliability, availability, and security of their information. But are most companies properly governing how their information is used, shared, and analyzed? The Economist Intelligence Unit recently conducted a survey of senior executives around the world on the benefits, challenges, and risks associated with developing an enterprise-wide information governance strategy.

The information that companies are busily generating, collecting, and mining offers a wealth of potential benefits. However, its use carries substantial risks. As a result, some organizations are forming formal governance bodies to create strategies, policies, and procedures surrounding the distribution of information inside and outside the firm. This paper seeks to better understand how companies are creating crossfunctional governance bodies to create strategies and policies around.
