LAS VEGAS -- The sad truth is that most information governance initiatives either fail or fall short. But there are some steps that companies can take to help increase the chances of success, according to Richard J. Self, a senior lecturer in informatics and business and information governance at the University of Derby in the U.K.
SearchDataManagement caught up with Self in between sessions at the IBM Information on Demand conference. Self explained that achieving success with an information governance program means first getting buy-in from senior executives. And to get buy-in, IT professionals need to put the benefits of information governance in terms the C-Level executives can understand.
Self went on to say that information governance skills are currently in low demand. He also had some additional tips for those considering an information governance program.
