Organizations in every industry are grappling with unprecedented data management challenges—and state and municipal government entities are no exception. In fact, they have the added burden of addressing numerous electronic discovery (eDiscovery) and compliance issues as they gather, store, and transmit massive volumes of information.
Government operations increasingly are providing digital services to citizens, and that means having to manage more data. They’re also fulfilling a growing number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and public records requests on a daily basis. And they’re dealing with these difficulties while being heavily regulated; having to abide by court-ordered, mandated requests; and facing challenging timelines—all with limited resources.
Fortunately, agencies can deploy technology solutions and put in place policies and procedures to significantly enhance the way they manage and protect data. And given the enormous challenges, they’d best begin these efforts soon.
