armaWell, if you are a fan of the 1972 movie Jeremiah Johnson or Robert Redford for that matter, you probably recognize the title of this post.  It happens to be one of my favorite movies and seemed like a great way to alert everyone of some of the great articles, research and white papers available over the next few weeks featuring Sherpa Software.  You’ll have to keep your eyes open to catch them all, so hear is a sneak peak of what to look for in the coming weeks.  Of course, if you follow Sherpa Software on any of our social media or check this blog regularly, we’ll make everything readily available.

ARMA will be releasing their summer 2015 Hot Topic – Producing a Good ROI on Information Governance.  This installment will be featured in the May/June issue of Information Management Magazine set to be delivered on May 1st.  A digital version will also be available around the same time.  For those of you not familiar with Hot Topic, it covers the latest information management topics that are keeping professionals up at night. Hot Topic includes several articles focused on a common theme that address best practices and practical advice for dealing with these challenges.  Sherpa Software president, Kevin Ogrodnik, authored an article titled Information Governance ROI = Reduce Risk, Organize Infrastructure, Increase Value.

Also coming to a theater near you, OK, no theater but to the web, is the latest AIIM Industry Watch Report.  AIIM is a non-profit association dedicated to nurturing, growing and supporting the information management community. They provide their research at no charge so the entire community can leverage the education, thought leadership and direction provided by their work.  The ability to deliver such high-quality research is partially made possible by the underwriting companies including Sherpa Software.

Now available, ECM Decisions – strategic options for managing, accessing and preserving content, can be downloaded here.  In this report, AIIM looks at how ECM systems have become mission-critical alongside the other pillars of enterprise IT, and how they need to be integrated with these other systems. They also look at how cloud and mobile strategies are playing out. Above all, they look at how all of these factors are influencing the choices for consolidation, enhancement or replacement.

Some additional articles appearing in May and June include a white paper by Sherpa’s Marta Farensbach titled “eDiscovery in an IG World” that will appear in the May issue of LJN’s Legal Tech Newsletter.  KM World will also be publishing an article by Sherpa Software focused on “9 Tips to Ensure Information Governance (IG) Success.”  A variation of these top tips for IG success will also appear in CIO Insight in the coming months.
