Enterprise Info Distribution System

By greg_ross_sr ·
We are in the process of creating an enterprise information distribution system. As our company has grown, we have realized that it is getting more difficult to not only administrate the hundreds of daily, weekly, monthly reports to the right people, but also to know what reports exist and what they contain. We have found value in managing report distribution to internal consumers and external consumers, namely customers and vendors. Our system has brought together reports from various systems into one system which can more efficiently maintain the distribution and management of these reports.
We have a working model of the system, but I would like to know how other businesses have succeeded or failed to organize the reporting in their enterprise in order to allow internal users to know what reports are available to them (out of hundreds) and easily adminster it, etc.

I welcome anyone to share your experiences.

Thanks,
Greg Ross
Sr. I.T. Project Manager

KVS Enterprise Vault which meets DoD 5015.2-STD was the solution that several US government agencies have chosen for document storage.

Enterprise Servers and Networks had a pretty good article on the issue:

And EMC has a pretty good set of papers on Information Lifecycle Management:

The main questions I see are:

Is your organization required to meet Title 36 standards as a federal contractor?

Is your organization required to meet DoD 5015.2-STD as a federal defense contractor?

Is your organization required to meet HIPPA?

Is your organization required to meet SOX?

The legal department would need to get involved if any of those are yes.

Best of luck on choosing hardware and software to meet your ILM requirements.
