The Executive's Guide to Navigating the Information Universe Book Release Speaking Events

Randy's new book, The Executive's Guide to Navigating the Information Universe, has been released and he is speaking about it all over the global. Please contact awcollison@kahnconsultinginc.com if your interested in engaging Randy to speak at one of your events.   

Overview of Book:

Companies that create and nurture an information culture can better predict their customers' needs, exploit markets, and conjure up new business possibilities. Similarly, companies that have their information act together are better able to protect their legal interest, comply with myriad privacy regulations, and mitigate the pain and inconvenience of discovery in the context of a lawsuit. What matters now is that information - which, for most companies, is the lifeblood that pulses through their corporate veins - allows an organization to exploit business opportunities while being mindful to mitigate risk.

To help guide you through the information universe, this easy-to-use primer, written by industry leaders, is a comprehensive guide arranged as twenty distinct Rules that provide an overarching understanding of "everything information" impacting your company, whether or not you know it. Each Rule includes an Executive Takeaway, Background Information, and Business and Legal Implications. Each Rule is self-contained, and you can refer to one Rule as a primer for a select topic or read the book from cover to cover to get the information you need.

For those who run or advise companies, this tool covers business and legal implications of Big Data, records retention, information security, Internet of Things (IoT), and more. The practical guide will help executives and lawyers manage what has become a board-level risk for many organizations.

Cloud First? Maybe Not: Why a Hybrid Cloud Approach Offers Greater Versatility

Cloud-based systems and applications are popular across companies in all industries. However, despite the intense interest in the cloud, many businesses have yet to make the leap to this platform. In fact, many companies that have adopted the cloud are far from completely operational on it. Does this sound like your organization?

If so, you’re not alone. According to AIIM research, over 35% of respondents said they were moving “more to the cloud,” while 46% said, “more towards a hybrid of cloud and on-premises.” This is because, despite its compelling capabilities, the cloud is not always the best option for some processes and some organizations. 

Join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, May 1st as we discuss these scenarios, and show you how a hybrid approach to the cloud leverages the best of both worlds. By allowing workloads and data to move between private repositories and public clouds flexibly, organizations have greater versatility and more options for content deployment and use.

This webinar is approved for 1.0 hour of CIP Maintenance Credits.
