This Q & A previews the SLA 2012 Annual Conference session, From Reactive to Proactive: Search Powered Information Governance for SharePoint. The Hot Topic is presented by first-time SLA 2012 Sponsor, Recommind.
SLA: What would you say is the most formidable obstacle between organizations and structured, litigation-ready information?
>>Recommind: Organizations across all industries are faced with increasing amounts of electronic data that must be categorized, stored and eventually deleted. Most enterprises don’t know what data they have, so they keep everything. Relying on employees to organize their information is a losing battle, as employees have neither the incentive nor the time to address the issue.
SLA: What is one takeaway that attendees of your Hot Topic session can expect?
>>Recommind: They will recognize how an enterprise search platform can improve enterprise governance and accuracy of unstructured information management.
SLA: This is your first year as a sponsor and exhibitor at SLA 2012. What do you want attendees to know about Recommind?
>>Recommind: Our solutions automatically access, organize and analyze large volumes of information, in context, from myriad sources. With greater control over and more accurate access to information, organizations can lower risk, heighten productivity, increase the value of information assets and improve competitiveness and profitability.
