Information is a critical business asset that fuels decision-making, collaboration, innovation and, ultimately, business success. But businesses incur significant costs and risks relating to privacy, security, and compliance due to a lack of adequate controls and safeguards on their enterprise information assets. An Information Governance strategy can help increase the strategic value of information throughout its lifecycle, while minimizing costs and risks.
Taking care of business means taking care of critical business information assets. Forward looking organizations understand this and define information policies and stewardship to ensure quality, compliance, and information protection.

We look at information in the context of your objectives and develop information policies aligned to your business goals and regulatory requirements. Our focus on information stewardship helps you define the privileges and responsibilities of owners and users. Experienced consultants work with you to determine priorities and create guidelines for implementing and enforcing your information policy.

Your existing content and information systems are probably built around lines of business or business functions. Critical business information is likely replicated across systems, creating fractionalized views of your customers, products, or other critical information. This situation impacts your effectiveness and increases cost and complexity.
Having a unified view of critical business information gives you a competitive edge. EMC Consulting helps enable consistent processing of information, regardless of where the data is entered. This improves business productivity and compliance management. It also yields better customer service, shorter turnaround times, and customer communications with higher impact.
EMC can help you integrate any category of information and simplify its use across business functions. We focus on capturing and using information along the entire value chain. We work with you to manage people and processes and deploy technology solutions that create a 360° view of your business.
Business Intelligence (BI) supports better business decision-making through historical, current, and predictive views of business operations. BI taps into a wide variety of data sources and requires analysis tools to cut through a sea of information and gain the necessary insights.
A successful BI implementation requires deep business expertise and a decision-maker viewpoint. EMC’s experienced industry professionals understand information management challenges and provide insightful, innovative approaches to address them. We involve business users at the beginning of every BI initiative. This ensures that the right requirements are identified, resulting in systems with high success rates and broad business impact.
Using methodologies such as “voice of the customer,” scenario planning, business modeling, and scorecards, we create business intelligence systems that guide strategic decision-making. Our industry experts, disciplined approach, and qualified technologists deliver systems that provide business-critical information and improved operational and financial performance.

Aligning your information governance requirements with your information infrastructure demands sound business judgment on topics such as retrieval rates, retention periods, and protection schemas.
EMC Consulting recommends that you first determine the importance of your business information. This helps define business requirements and the appropriate IT architectural alternatives. The resulting framework provides a logical foundation for developing a service catalog that balances your business requirements with your IT service levels and meets protection and archiving requirements.
Defining tiers of IT protection and archiving services enhances your ability to implement and monitor effective information governance best practices. These tiers allow business stakeholders and information architects to make informed decisions about the levels of protection, performance, and cost that apply to your mission-critical business applications and data. You can then select the appropriate best practice technologies for each class of information, optimizing performance and choosing the right low-cost solutions.
