Information Governance: Chaos to Control with Information Governance – an HP Twitter Chat Recap

Recently, HP held a roundtable discussion on information governance via Twitter with some of its top thought leaders in this area, which reached more than 150,000 followers.  A full transcript of this discussion can be found here.


Questions covered in this online and interactive discussion include:

  • What is information governance anyway?
  • How is information governance different from data governance? Are they different?
  • How do I/my company get started with information governance?
  • How do eDiscovery and information governance influence each other?
  • What is the role of information governance in making enterprises relevant in 2014?
  • What are the key market forces that have driven the need for information governance?
  • How does information governance enable enterprises to maximize their ROI?
  • Are there any nuances that apply to specific industries from the perspective of information governance?
  • If big data had a voice, how would it react to information governance?


Of the nearly 200 comments posted, perhaps the most discussion in this session concentrated on how the definition of information governance has evolved over time.  Early on, the definition was quite narrow…largely focused on a narrow set of needs (e.g., legal and compliance) and a narrow set of data in the organization (e.g., records).  The rise of big data and the ensuing conversations about the value contained therein have helped senior executives look at their data differently—now focusing as much on garnering value and strategic insight from their data as managing risk and cost.  The word cloud below will give you an even better sense of some of the hot topics discussed. 




This Twitter chat session included representatives from two key pieces of HP, which can work together to solve Information Governance problems for customers worldwide: HP Autonomy has a deep Information Governance technology portfolio, and HP Enterprise Services deliver value-added services (domain expertise, counsel on policy development) in support of HP Autonomy’s technology.  This powerful combination recently announced jointly delivered information governance solutions for organizations in regulated industries
