Welcome to ARMA CT

The Connecticut Chapter of ARMA International, a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1976 and provides education, research and networking opportunities to records and information management professionals and other interested parties, to enable them to use their skills and experiences to leverage the value of records, information and knowledge as corporate assets and as contributors to organizational success.

Upcoming Educational Event - 5/6/14
Information Governance Workshop
Galina  Datskovsky & John Montaña 

Data sets are too large, too complex and too poorly organized to permit letter-of-the-law compliance and governance in the traditional sense. So, do we need to give up on governance? Absolutely not! It's entirely possible to impose meaningful, defensible and useful governance rules on big/dark/disorganized data sets. The trick is to throw out the old rulebook and start thinking in an entirely different way. This session will talk about how you do just that, and begin to tame the beast. Our speakers will explore what compliance really means, how to apply legal regulations, how to tackle complex systems and repositories, and how to deal with messy things like shared drives or uncontrolled SharePoint sites.
