Data retention & records management
Tuesday - 7/22/2014, 6:34pm EDT
Every listener knows that information, whether digital or paper forms - is growing at an exponential rate. In fact, according to the National Science Foundation, 90 percent of the data in existence today was created in the last two years.
The Presidential Directive on Managing Government Records, and initiatives such as the Open Data Policy, have begun to address this critical challenge, but this is only the beginning.
The discussion today is about how the federal government has reached this critical tipping point in terms of records and information management, and how agencies can position themselves for better management, governance, information access and transparency.
Back in 2012, President Obama issued the Presidential Directive on Managing Government Records.
This is an unfunded mandate that targets 2019 as the year that federal agencies need to complete their transition to digital records.
During the interview, Walsh gives several examples of the best practice for achieving this noteworthy goal with both proprietary and open source systems.
