Coming Soon: Guide to Managing Unstructured Content
John Martin’s forthcoming book, “Guide to Managing Unstructured Content,” provides a four-step model to gaining control of unstructured content:
- Rationalize – identify the files you need to manage
- Classify – describe the types of documents
- Attribute – pull key data elements
- Validate – be sure you’ve identified all files and that the information is correct
The book is based on John’s many years of migrating content, developing e-discovery and information management tools, and serving as a testifying and consulting expert on e-discovery.
The first part of the book gives advice and pointers for each of the four steps. The book goes on to provide a high-level overview of visual classification followed by an in-depth examination of the technology from the perspective of the four-step model. The book concludes by offering a checklist for selecting file classification technology along with thoughts on getting started.
The book is expected to be published in mid to late summer, 2016.
