Over the years I have interacted with a variety of analysts at various technology companies that I have worked with and worked for. Invariably each technology company is jockeying to get an engagement with an analyst to appear ‘well placed’ in some ‘quadrant’ or ‘wave’.
With the forthcoming european ‘Brexit’ vote the question most people in the UK are being asked is are you ‘in’ or are you ‘out’.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted and a new post is more than a little late overdue and this particular post is inspired by a similar post form Ed Freyfogle, an entrepreneur, investor in Storage Made Easy, and an ex-colleague and friend.
An interesting chat with David Horrigan from the 451 Research Group confirmed what I had suspected for a while, that for most companies, large and small, Information Governance, as an IT initiative it still does not feature very highly on their agenda.
Although information governance is a pre-requisite for certain industry vertical such as legal and medical, companies tend to try and solve specific point issues rather than implementing an information governance framework. Examples of these are Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or Mobile Device Management (MDM) policies that whilst in some cases needed, is only one example of the disciplines around information that is required.
