The Information Coalition advances community-driven best practices in organizational information strategy - across disciplines, across all organizational information. We help you find the best ways of working together, no matter your discipline of expertise (Records, Information, Privacy, Data Science, Security, etc.), on the improvement of your information - policy, processes, and technology inclusive. We help enable you to best reduce risk and increase the value of your information.
We develop with the community the open source body of knowledge to the information profession, the InfoBOK; provide resources like the Information Governance Model; we provide podcasts; we provide research and white papers; and we hold an annual conference focused on improving your organization's information - The Information Governance Conference.
Last year's announcement for Opentext Magellan was accompanied by plenty of marketing videos and analyst opinions but what I would like to focus on is what I think is the most interesting implication that this wave of affordable Enterprise AI suggests: the death of unstructured content.
The great debate of ECM vs Content Services rages on. I say look at your information flow, follow it, and find new ways to make it flow faster. If you can do that and know where your information is at any time, you are done.
Building a framework for efficiently and effectively governing data and information is no small task. You are tasked with convening the key players, figuring out your end goal, communicating it, getting buy-in, and fleshing out the intermediate steps. It is all very complicated.
I’ve been noticing this trend where “new” (to me) vendors have been popping up on my radar. At first glance, I labeled each one as a niche vendor. As new names came up, I realized that I was actually seeing a much larger parallel market. Solutions vendors were emerging in areas that had been typically custom solutions built on ECM platforms. In some cases, large vendor landscapes had emerged. One case in point is Contract Lifecycle Management.
The Information Profession has been experiencing a convergence - empowered by technology, disciplines have been moving closer towards one another and, eventually, some titles will be (and are being) deprecated as job duties converge.
The Information Coalition is not an association and we are not a consulting firm, we are something completely different: we are the coalition of the collective knowledge of the community of information professionals. Our primary goal is to create a unified body of knowledge across all disciplines of the information profession.
We work with you, the information professional, to connect you to the resources you need to achieve enterprise information success. Information success requires a comprehensive perspective through the full breadth of disciplines you need to control, share, and protect your organization’s information assets.
The Information Coalition exists as a reflection of your combined expertise, the syndication of community-based input. Our leadership team is not the Information Coalition, you are (as is every member of our community). We exist merely as a conduit of this incredible community and as such, we don’t point the spotlight at ourselves- we hand you the spotlight so you can use it to navigate forward.
