What is the current state of RIM and its on-going transformation to IG? Cohasset Associates and ARMA International surveyed almost 1,000 records and information managers to create the 2017 Transforming Information Management report.

Key findings from the survey include:

  • 85% of survey respondents indicate that their organizations have a RIM Program.
  • However, a mere 25% report that their organizations have developed a strategy to enable a transformation to IG from RIM.
  • A combined 51% of respondents indicate that the implementation of enterprise-wide IG policies is underway or a priority in the next 12 months.

Download the report for more survey results and actions that will enable IG and RIM professionals to respond to information-related, interdisciplinary demands.
