Combining independent research, data trends, and actionable takeaways.
The IIM practice and all the disciplines that comprise it have never been more important – but not for the reasons that some in our profession espouse. Despite a universal acknowledgement of the importance of digital transformation and the customer experience aspect thereof, our information management approaches don’t always lend themselves to support this single most important transformation driver.
Dive into the current state of information management within organisations, based on research conducted in February 2022, with 265 decision-makers drawn from the AIIM community:
Even the rising scope of privacy and security concerns have failed to change the perception that information governance practices lack the ability to influence decisions around data-first and customer-first strategies over the long term. When this group was asked about executive opinion on the motivating drivers behind data privacy efforts, the lower scorers pointed to the risk of noncompliance with new regulations. The higher scoring group said that their executives – known for playing the “negative lottery” – are, in reality, driven by the potential for reputational damage and loss of customer loyalty. (p. 19)
Despite a universal acknowledgement of the importance of digital transformation and the customer experience aspect thereof, our information management approaches don’t always lend themselves to support the single most important transformation driver. The research shows that mindsets and methodologies centered on risk, compliance, and governance for governance’s sake, only water the seeds of discontent when it comes to business executives and business users. One could say that by speaking the language of doubt, risk, and noncompliance, customer experience is the last thing being improved. (p. 26)
