CMSWire is currently featuring a piece by Gimmal Founder and SVP Mike Alsup. It outlines his reaction to Microsoft's roadmap for the remainder of 2016 and answers a few key questions about the reality of public cloud security, cloud scaling, and information governance. He writes:

Information governance is a headache for many executives. The DoD 5015.2 standard was based on moving documents into a repository for records management and ultimate disposition.

Instead, they’re maintaining their content in silos such as file rooms, email repositories, share drives, SharePoint and specialized ECM repositories, such as Documentum, OpenText and FileNet.

The number of repositories where records exist is increasing in most organizations. As a result, there are valuable records in multiple repositories that need to be governed according to information policies. It is not clear how most organizations will meet their requirements for the governance of their content.
