  • Ready, Aim, Shoot - Knowing Your Organization's Goals Before Choosing A Product” Choosing an electronic records management product is an important milestone. But to choose the best product, you must establish your organization's goals. Whether your electronic records program is chartered to reduce risk, empower legal counsel, lower litigation costs, or a combination of these and other factors, your goals will affect the package you choose. Knowing whether your business requires a DOD 5015.2 certified system, whether you are subject to multiple state or international jurisdictions for your retention schedule, and other factors can also affect the package you choose. These factors can also affect your selection process (will you require a pilot program?) and your ongoing success, such as how you will ensure user adoption and continued executive support. Your organization may have specialized requirements due to your industry or other factors, but more than just a feature comparison, your selection should consider which vendor‘s product, people and approach best aligns with your goals.

    • What Will I Need?
    • How Will I Do it?
    • How Will I Succeed?
  • “ Effective information management will be critical in the next decade, differentiating those enterprises that will implode under the infoglut from those that will use it to dominate the global economy." Gartner, June 2006 Source: Gartner; June 2006; Spotlight on Enterprise Information Management
  • Have you seen the news?
    • How do we thrive in the midst of an economic implosion?
      • Lower costs
      • Be more competitive – transparency in decisions
      • Lower risk
      • Prepare for additional regulatory requirements
  • Key Concepts

  • Goals for Records Management
    • Make information findable and improve business processes
    • Ensure compliance and reduce risk by controlling information retention
    • Empower legal counsel and reduce costs by enabling e-Discovery
  • Content Retention
    • To persuade business unit leaders of the necessity for effective document retention, a large chemical firm’s legal department conducted an internal cost assessment of a 3-year litigation project. Their findings:
    • They reviewed 75 million pages of text during the 3-year period.
    • More than 50 percent of the documents they reviewered were out-of-date and should have been deleted.
    • The cost of reviewing out-of-date documents amounted to $12 million.
    • How much money would your organization save if you could target your outdated content, and remove it?
  • What is a record?
    • Vital piece of history of how we do business
      • Licenses, insurance policies
    • Emails
    • Documents
    • Website
    • Information Explosion – Facebook, blogs, wikis, discussion boards, chat, IM, text messages
    • All of these are subject to discovery
    • Therefore, we want to manage retention on information we might not consider a record
  • The Economist
    • http://www.economist.com/business/displaystory.cfm?story_id=12010377
    • “ Whereas in the past 5% of cases went to trial, now only 2% do.”
    • Patrick Oot, a lawyer for Verizon: “Almost every case involves e-discovery and spits out ’terabytes’ of information... In an ordinary case, 200 lawyers can easily review electronic documents for four months, at a cost of millions of dollars.”
    • Specialised e-discovery service providers which charge $125-600 an hour.

  • User Adoption
    • Most companies have tried to install RM systems, and retrain users in how to author content
    • Costly – new licenses, throwing away old licenses, training costs
    • User adoption is the biggest barrier to good records management
  • Categorizing Content Metadata Driven
    • Content can be matched to retention policies based upon metadata

  • RM in Content Management Systems
    • Allow records management features to be implemented in content management systems
    • File plans, retention schedules, discovery, placing holds, disposition
    • Anybody see a problem with that?
    • Either you have records manager who is trained in administering many systems, or you have records managers who each manage their own systems.
    • How do you coordinate file plans, retention schedules, discovery, placing holds, and disposition?
  • Federated Records Management
    • Allow authors to create content as they usually do
    • Store it where they do – file shares, document management systems, SharePoint
    • Harvest that content on a regular basis
    • Do you copy or move that content?
      • If you copy it, you have two copies, and upon disposition you still have the content around
      • If you move it, you have angry users who can’t find their content
  • In Place Records Management
    • Allow content to remain in system where it was created

    • Support contract
  • RFPs
    • Keep it to the point
    • Nobody wants to fill it out, nobody wants to read it
    • Should weed out some vendors
    • Focus on your goals – cost cutting, e-discovery, user performance
    • Why should you not put out an RFP in March, June, September, or December?
  • Demonstrations
    • When you have narrowed down to 2-3 vendors
    • Get a demonstration showing your content
    • See the administrator’s experience
    • See the end user’s experience
  • Pilot
    • How long?
    • How many employees involved?
    • What is the feedback process from users?
    • Have a mock discovery
    • Look at audit trails and certificates of destruction – will these stand up in court?
  • Services
    • Find out how much consulting, training, and support will be involved in
      • Your first implementation
      • Running your system thereafter

    • You need strong partners to guide you…
    • Evaluation, file planning, implementation, roll out
  • ROI
    • Stakeholders will want to see a strong ROI, especially in current economic environment
    • Where are the areas we can show this?
    • Soft numbers – productivity
    • Hard numbers – call center times, discovery costs, storage costs
    • Don’t boil the ocean – pick at area to focus on
  • Why Your IT Organization Should Care…
  • Typical Content Growth Example company - storage, archiving, services costs
    • Email
    • 10,000 user mailboxes, 100 MB per mailbox = 1 TB
    • 10 sent msgs/day, 25 rec’d @ 15 K per = 5.25 GB
    • Growth rate of 137%
    • Documents
    • 10,000 users storing 2.5 GB documents = 25 TB
    • Create 1 MB/day = 100 GB
    • Growth rate of 100%
    • Calculated at $50/GB annual storage/archiving/ service cost
  • Storage Savings Storage, archiving, services
    • Deleting content kept beyond it’s retention period can save up to 33% of your storage costs
    • Based upon deleting 50% of your content that is beyond it’s retention period.
      Projected Storage Projected Costs Managed Storage Savings 2007 26,000 $1,300,000 26,000 $0 2008 53,365 $2,668,250 40,365 $650,000 2009 80,730 $4,036,500 47,548 $1,659,125 Total $8,004,750 $2,309,125
  • Restoration Costs The Cost to IT
    • What would it cost to find everywhere content exists in your organization – file system, email, applications, repositories, desktop, archives, backup tapes.
    • What would it cost you to restore this content for review?
      Projected Content Restoration Costs Managed Storage Savings 2007 26,000 $15,843,750 26,000 $0 2008 53,365 $32,519,297 40,365 $7,921,875 2009 80,730 $49,194,844 47,548 $20,220,586 Total $97,557,891 $28,142,461
  • Discovery Costs
    • Discovery costs are typically $1,800 to $2,500 per GB
    • One time discovery on 20% of your data at $1,800 per GB
      Projected Content Discovery Costs Managed Storage Savings 2007 26,000 $9,360,000 26,000 $0 2008 53,365 $19,211,400 40,365 $4,680,000 2009 80,730 $29,062,800 47,548 $11,945,700 Total $57,634,200
  • Litigation Preparedness
    • In case of litigation, it is important to have strong control over your content
    • Know what evidence you have
    • Quickly search it for relevant information
    • Know the strength of your case – called “knowing hand”
    • Present organized data at discovery meetings
      • Catalog of content, per new Civil Rules of Federal Procedure
  • Litigation Savings
    • A typical $1B revenue company has 146 lawsuits per year.
    • 25% of lawsuits are settled earlier based on “knowing hand” and immediate access to evidence (140 lawsuits x 25% = 35).
    • Estimated savings approximated at 20% per early settled lawsuit ($1.5 million average lawsuit cost x 20% = $300,000).
      • Year 1 Savings: 35 lawsuits settled early at a savings of $10.5 million.
      • Year 2 Savings: 35 lawsuits settled early at a savings of $10.5 million.
      • Year 3 Savings: 35 lawsuits settled early at a savings of $10.5 million.
    • Total Savings 3 Years: 105 lawsuits settled early at a savings of $31.5 million.
  • Total Savings
    • Quantifiable Cost/Savings Comparison:
      • Storage savings over 3 years: $2.3 million
      • Restoration savings, 2009: $20 million
      • Discovery savings, 2009: $12 million
      • Litigation savings, per year: $10.5 million
    • Non-Quantifiable Cost/Saving Comparison:
      • Decreased corporate risk (exposure) though implementation of document retention process.
      • Increased flexibility for new Federal Rules of Civil Procedures – i.e. “Meet and Confer” – early access/understanding of scope of evidence.
      • Less vulnerability to “nuisance” lawsuits
      • Decreased cost due to employee ability to locate knowledge resources amidst less clutter
