Why Records Management Matters More than Ever

At ARMA Live! Conference, exhibitors showcase intelligent solutions for successful information governance

Binary Code and Laptops

Information professionals face a dilemma in records management—the cost of implementing a comprehensive solution versus the cost of ignoring the issue. According to a recent study from AIIM, 31 percent of senior executives admitted their inferior electronic records keeping is causing problems with regulators and auditors, while 14 percent said they were incurring fines or bad publicity due to poor handling of information. Similarly, a recent post in Wired's Innovation Insights blog says that poor data quality costs U.S. businesses up to $600 billion annually, or 20-35 percent of their operating revenue. For these reasons, successful records management matters more than ever.

At the ARMA Live! Conference & Expo in San Diego October 26-28, attendees and exhibitors are sharing solutions for these challenges. Kodak Alaris is among them, with document scanners, capture software and information management solutions on display that enable IT, Legal, and Compliance departments to more effectively manage business records and avoid fines and sanctions due to poor corporate record keeping.
