One of the most difficult questions facing businesses and organizations today is what to do with poorly identified, poorly managed legacy records—whether they be in paper or electronic form. Businesses are often faced with trying to organize and disposition boxes and boxes of records or gigabytes and gigabytes (or even terabytes) of information. More times than not normal rules of classification and disposition do not apply, as the prohibitive cost of manually sorting (if this is even possible) through large record and data sets stops the process before it begins.
The lack of coherent and rational identification of these legacy records makes even a manual sorting process tedious and challenging. Because of these roadblocks organizations generally lack the confidence to implement a course of action. Montaña & Associates can assist in developing strategies to analyze these data sets and create defensible management and disposition processes that will avoid the frequently unsustainable costs of managing them through regular methods.
