The reinvention of the information manager

A recent study by AIIM, as summarized in this post, shows that by 2020, employers expect their records and information managers to be competent in risk management, with security and data privacy skills a priority for 50%. They must also show competence in content and information management across a wide range of formats and platforms (47%); and in data analytics (44%). Further, employers want records and information professionals to identify new opportunities for efficient information management and to be able to support colleagues through times of disruptive change, such as a merger, acquisition or divestiture.

The study challenges information management professionals to find ways to help people do their jobs better, rather than focus on telling people how they must comply to regulations.
