New Paper — RIM Strategies for BYOD

New Paper — RIM Strategies for BYOD

Sheila Taylor has authored a new chapter for the March, 2016 supplement to Carswell’s Records and Information Management subscription-based service, entitled “RIM Strategies for BYOD”.

The chapter provides an assessment of the current state of Bring Your Own Device, including the advantages and disadvantages of the trend to both employers and employees.  The second half of the chapter examines RIM implications in detail, both in terms of challenges that BYOD presents to the records manager, as well as advice on how to manage a BYOD implementation from a RIM perspective.

Our thanks to Carswell for providing permission for us to make this chapter available free of charge.

You can view the chapter in our Published Articles section of this site, or view/download it directly here.

    Case in Point

    That's A Lot of Records!
    Often the requirement for a needs assessment is driven by a specific initiative being considered or an immediate problem to be solved, rather than a general desire to establish a corporate (or organization-wide) IM program. We had a client wanting to improve its management of a specific group of critical records – thousands of member files in paper, microform and digital formats containing hundreds of unique document types.
    Assess, Plan and Schedule
    Ergo reviewed the organization’s current practices for managing those records, compared those practices to best practices, and identified risks and areas for improvement. From there we developed a strategic plan with a focus on records storage and retention. The plan identified the operational, financial and technological requirements for implementing the recommended changes, improvements and enhancements in the lifecycle management of the member records. Activities in the plan were classified as short term (next 6-12 months), medium term (next 12-24 months) and longer term (next 25+ months).
    Step by Step Success
    Implementation of the strategic plan enabled this organization to ensure its member records are properly identified, organized, accessible, protected and retained as long as necessary to meet operational and other requirements.
