A City Breakfast Meeting – 4th June, IOD, City of London
Serco Consulting and Active Navigation are organizing a City Breakfast Meeting at IOD, City of London, on June 4th
Curing “Information Management Deficiency Syndrome”
4 th June, IOD, City of London, 8:30 to 9:30 – A City Breakfast
Many financial institutions suffer from “Information Management Deficiency Syndrome”, often unknowingly. Staff are being overwhelmed by an ever-increasing deluge of information but business critical knowledge is frequently inaccessible to those who need it. Information is buried in shared drives or e-mail accounts, lacking proper organisation, indexing or retention processes. This results in organisations being unable to use information that can be crucial to decision making, accurate reporting or meeting compliance directives. It also leads to increased administration costs, and wasting resources on the storage and management of unnecessary and duplicated information. The true cost of data storage now exceeds £90/GB/Yr (Berkeley University 2006). Related energy costs are increasing (currently 10% of the overall IT budget and growing to 50% by 2012), and the carbon footprint associated with the use of Information & Communications Technologies is approaching that of the aviation industry!
We have a prescription which will allow you to cure this for real business benefit. And our approach will “inoculate” your business against further relapses.
Serco Consulting and Active Navigation would like to invite you to a brief but highly valuable breakfast meeting at the Institute of Directors (www.iod.co.uk), in the City of London.
You’ll hear a current user’s account of a unique software product which can help disentangle messy information stores, on any scale; and about high quality consultancy and support services that will allow you to realise the benefits of better information governance. One of the immediate benefits is cost reduction: our experience shows that up to 40% of the high cost of data storage can be saved by careful use of Content Audit techniques. Of course, you will also enjoy a fine IOD breakfast and the stimulating company of other senior executives from the City – and we will aim to finish by 9:30 a.m.
