Law and Candor

Achieving Information Governance through a Transformative Cloud Migration

Episode Summary

Data migrations are generally perceived as painful and disruptive experiences. However, they also provide unique opportunities to transform the way unstructured data is used and managed within an organization. Changes to governance policies and processes that would be too disruptive if implemented within existing systems can be planned and rolled out as part of the expected disruption that typically occurs during any large-scale data migration. For organizations already investing in such migrations, taking advantage of the opportunity to also transform unstructured data and related policies can help offset migration costs and further justify the migration effort. Tune into this episode of Law & Candor to uncover key ways to identify unstructured data transformation opportunities and strategies for developing a comprehensive information architecture plan that will inform the overall migration strategy and help to ensure its success.
