InfoTrends Launches Study Exploring Composition, Scope, and Relationships of Document Solutions for Risk Mitigation

Friday, August 18, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

(Weymouth, MA) August 16, 2006 -- Today’s organizations must command a keen awareness of the many risks (external and internal) that face their businesses. In a great many cases, risks are linked to information created, received, shared, and stored across an enterprise. As documents and electronic content are the lifeblood of a business, mitigating risk ultimately depends on effective processes and systems for information and content management. Because the risks related to “information failures” in these areas have proven to be monumental and catastrophic, they create “opportunities” for organizations to affect change and re-tool via a host of process, software, and hardware initiatives including compliance, records management, e-mail management, contract management, content management, and e-Discovery. To examine the composition, scope, and relationships of risk mitigation efforts, InfoTrends is launching a new study entitled Mitigating Enterprise Risk with Electronic Document Solutions. This study will provide actionable answers to the following questions: * What is the composition of risk mitigation initiatives for compliance, records/e-mail/contract/content management, and e-Discovery? What do the typical deployments “look like” and how are they related? * Who owns and pays for these deployments? With which technologies and/or services are they being addressed? * Are the efforts in the people/process state or into actual deployment of technology-enabled solutions? * Are these initiatives being undertaken at the enterprise level, or is automating records management still the purview of the records management team at functional and/or departmental levels? * What types of external providers are helping organizations? What is the role of outsourcing for services and technologies? * Given the scope and relationship of risk mitigation initiatives, what is the size of the market opportunity for document and content solutions and service providers? * What is the impact of future or potential legal or regulatory changes? “The answers to these questions will provide valuable information to the vendors that provide a variety of document and content solutions aimed at facilitating compliance and mitigating enterprise risk,” commented Michael Maziarka, a Director at InfoTrends. “Specifically, the study will address the degree to which a coordinated enterprise approach is being taken towards electronic document solutions for compliance-related initiatives.” To address these questions, InfoTrends will conduct primary market research with 350 medium-sized and large North American organizations with C-level, IT, and line-of-business managers across the key industries exposed to substantial compliance and information risk. 10 in-depth interviews will also be conducted to further explore response patterns and gain additional perspective. “Our study will combine qualitative and quantitative research, providing respondents with the opportunity to supply information about the roles that document solutions, technologies, and services will play in risk mitigation initiatives,” commented Maziarka.
