Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
RSD, a leading provider of information governance solutions for the enterprise, today announced that it has formed a partnership with Strait & Associates, experts in providing consulting services for records and information management.
“We are honored to partner with Strait & Associates to help our customers deploy an information governance program on a global scale,” said Brian Clark, RSD Vice President of Strategic Alliances. “Technology alone does not solve the information governance challenge; customers require deep knowledge in the creation of strategic roadmaps and multi-jurisdiction policy.”
Information governance enforces desirable behavior in the creation, use, archiving, and disposition of corporate information. Information governance addresses regulations over multiple jurisdictions, as well as corporate standards for managing information. Information governance ensures proper retention and disposal of records, ensures data privacy rules are enforced, and supports e-discovery requirements, storage optimization, and metadata management.
RSD GLASS® is a patent-pending product used to manage global corporate information governance programs for electronic and physical records. Using RSD GLASS, companies create corporate policies that are actively enforced across organizational and jurisdictional boundaries, IT systems, content repositories, and paper archives. Unlike alternative solutions, RSD GLASS manages multi-jurisdictional policies, granularity of governance events, and active policy enforcement – wherever governed content resides – across the potentially decades-long lifecycle.
Strait & Associates provides records and information management (RIM) services utilizing methodologies based on years of experience, leading practices and industry standards. Their unique and proven approach results in providing customers with the tools to take action and make sustainable changes in how to properly govern information.
"The volume and breadth of information coming into and out of organizations is at an alarming rate, forcing executives to address the challenges of properly managing all of this information and unlocking the value of all this content," said Strait & Associates president Cheryl Strait. "Many companies have formed a steering committee and are looking for specific methodologies and tools to take action on how information should be governed.”
Founded in 1973 in Geneva, with affiliates in New York, London, Paris, Boston, Zurich and Madrid, RSD helps companies meet the growing challenge of information governance by providing market-leading products for business information delivery, content and records management, and document archiving and retrieval.
RSD solutions are used in more than 1,200 installations worldwide, including a majority of the Fortune 500. Today RSD supports millions of users, and offers its innovative products and services in more than 26 countries around the globe – both directly and through strategic business partners.
