The Reasonable Discovery® Virtual In-House Roundtable is held monthly. It is a forum in which we discuss topics such as on Big Data, Knowledge Management, Information Governance, Data Analytics, Privacy and Security and e-Discovery. Participation is free but limited. All you need is an internet connection and the desire to collaborate with your colleagues around the globe.
The December 4, 2017 Virtual In-House Roundtable was a huge success.
Participants included: Richard Gomes: Citigroup, Jon Newcomb: Comcast, Seth Eichenholz: Mastercard, Volha Parfionana: Voya, Tim Donovan: Netsmart, Carol Purcell: Endo Pharmaceuticals, Marc Kantor: Voya, Bernard J. Lillis: US Bank, Guy St Clair: Columbia University and SMR International, Anne Kershaw: Reasonable Discovery, and myself, Cliff Berger.
The discussion centered around migrating email, archives and business records to cloud services such as Office 365. While some saw the momentum for moving to the cloud as simply an economic business decision, others saw momentum due to the safety and simplicity of maintaining emails, PSTs, metadata, file shares and other business records in a cloud environment. There was general consensus that the safety of the cloud is now more accepted than it was just several years ago. There was significant discussion about the mixed results different people had with the actual migration. We touched on the pitfalls and benefits of “cleaning house” and moving to the cloud. While it is not easy for a large highly regulated company to adopt cloud services such as Office 365, the value and the benefits seem to have been universally acknowledged in this discussion. Those who have tried and failed at first still intend to execute the migration in the future. The discussion around the various experiences was enlightening to all.
The January discussion will be:
Implementation of Cloud Services for Records Management, e-Discovery and Corporate Security
“How do we assess and implement cloud services as tools in the modern business environment?”
Future topics of discussion may include:
European Unified Privacy Regulations
“What we should know about EUGDPR and how does it affect us inside and outside of the US?”
