Some people might wonder why a “lit support vendor” would be attending the ARMA National Conference in Las Vegas. Truth is, Valora’s capabilities have been exceeding “lit support” for a long time. We find kindred spirits in ARMA, because we are looking at the larger world of corporate documents – for lots of purposes, litigation being just one of them. In the last 18 months, we have seen tremendous convergence between traditional litigation and eDiscovery with Records Information Management and Information Governance. In fact, last month I gave a presentation to the NYC chapter of ARMA on “5 Things Litigation Can Teach Records Management and 5 Things You Can Teach Them.” (Let me know if you’d like a copy of the slides.) We are going to see more and more of this kind global information management, where litigation is but one use of an organized and controlled data governance strategy. Watch this space for more on this topic in the weeks to come.
