Here is the fifth and final (except for a bonus video coming soon) in our five-part video series where I asked 30 Information Governance the same 5 questions. This video is the longest of the five, as I ask our interviewees to tell us their favorite story about IG – something that illustrates what it is, why it is hard, challenges they have faced and so on. There are some great stories, so get yourself a fresh cup of coffee and a snack and enjoy.
Today Microsoft announced a new feature for its hosted SharePoint service that will inevitably rear its head in future ugly e-discovery disputes: a recycle bin for entire SharePoint sites. According to Microsoft, “business is full of “oops” moments, and sometimes these moments can really slow down productivity . . . enterprise customers can now restore full site collections, in addition to sites, documents, lists, and list items.”
“With just a few clicks,” you can self-restore entire site collections within 30 days after they are deleted.
Hmmn. Sounds like yet another area where SharePoint governance will be required – and resisted – by SharePoint admins.
Here are the slides from the webinar we just completed on “Solving Shared Drives.” I personally don’t find slides divorced from their presentation that useful, but this will give you a flavor of what we talked about. Also, we will be shortly following up with a whitepaper on the topic as well as the recording of the webinar, so look for that too.
