The amount of information created and used in infrastructure and construction sectors is huge and diverse by nature. Organizations need to understand specific requirements for efficient information management throughout infrastructure life cycles and their supply chains. This approach helps organisations understand their information retention requirements, identify and assess risks of information losses in long term and provide guidance on solutions to mitigate the risks of information loss.
Why futureproof information?
|Hardware and technology failures leading to information loss||Information loss due to various file formats used||Old and unreliable information form unknown sources|
