Bruce discussed these challenges, which range from spiraling storage costs, to compliance risks, and of course, the impact on the quality of AI-generated content. This is where the “information management fairies” step in to solve complex cloud-based problems and bring tangible benefits to their organizations, such as: 

  • Reduced storage costs: Guiding organizations to avoid the pitfalls of unnecessary storage expenses and maintain a lean and cost-effective data environment. 
  • Optimized performance: Gain performance enhancements that come with proper data archiving.   
  •  Compliance and reduced risk: Protect against the storms of legal risks and strategically minimize potential legal entanglements and their hefty costs. 

Bruce demonstrated how the powerful capabilities of AvePoint Opus, such as automated data classification, workflows, and auditing, enable information managers to be the heroes in this new age of exponential data growth. 

Round Table: AI and Information Management Report 2024 

In collaboration with AIIM and the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL), AvePoint released a comprehensive report exploring the critical relationship between AI and information management at the conference!  

The report paints a sobering picture: as organizations rush to embrace the transformative power of AI, they are confronting long-standing information management challenges that have been swept under the rug. With data left unmanaged and a lack of fundamental information management practices like information lifecycle policies, organizations risk breeding inefficiencies, errors, and costly risks.  

The round table discussion underscored the vital role that information managers play in guiding organizations through this AI-driven landscape. By aligning information management processes with the requirements of successful AI adoption, information managers can help unlock the full potential of this cutting-edge technology while mitigating the associated risks.
