Wikibon Peer Incite - July 28 2009: Topic; Prevent Unstructured Data from Fueling Business Risk

The next Wikibon Peer Incite conference call will be held on Tuesday July 28th to discuss the topic: "Prevent Unstructured Data from Fueling Business Risk"

The Wikibon Project has extended an open invitation to all interested to participate with industry leaders from the Energy, Healthcare and Finance industries by simply listening to the discussion or by sharing viewpoints on the topic.

Summary of session:

CIOs, CTOs, and business managers must re-think information management strategies. Digital information is forecast to top 2.5 zetabytes worldwide by 2012, and an increasing percentage of this data will have critical business value requiring a management infrastructure for compliance and governance.

The featured speakers are four information management practitioners who will lead the discussion on why today's systems are unable to meet business demands to effectively manage information and improve security, protect privacy and mitigate risk.

The speakers include:

Jennifer Winch - Pacific Gas & Electric Company

Sam McCollum - Enmax

Fareed Hosain - Standard Chartered Bank

Michael "Mick" Talley - University Bank

Discussion topics will include:

  • Information management - What has worked, what hasn't, and what's new in unstructured data management?

  • What drives business investments in unstructured data management? Is it security, privacy, compliance, discovery or other operational risks?

  • How have compliance requirements changed the role of CIO/CTO/Information Management professionals?

  • Why organizations need to refocus on business processes before broadly applying information management technology as a business enabler.

Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST (10:00pm - 11:00pm PST)
