1 Are We Kidding Ourselves? How much can we really capture and manage? Presented by: John Sim IIM Victorian Branch Meeting – 29 May 2012

2 Where Have We Come from? A Trip Down Memory Lane Remember Registries? Remember mainframes and dumb terminals? Prime, Wang, Honeywell, DEC, Data General & many othersPrimeWang Photocopy centres (MFD’s?) Hardcopy everything! (almost) Microfilm was HUGE! PC’s had arrived, but you were lucky if you had one Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © Mid 1970’s to mid 80’s A sophisticated programmable calculator, the HP 9830A was actually an early desktop computer with printer - circa 1975

3 Kramenna Pty Ltd © Still In Memory Lane Desktop computing just beginning to appear (Apple)Apple Typing pools still going!going (as we know it) still to arrive in most workplaces Internal memo still king! Manual information circulation. Windows OS arrives – 1.0 in 1985, 2.0 in 1987, 3.0 in 1990 and 3.1 in 1992, Win 95 MID 1980’s to Early 90’s Early Wang PC circa 1987 Prime computer room circa 1982

4 So what has changed? Mass introduction of desktop computing. Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © Mid to late 1990’s and onward Word processing EXPLOSION (remember Wordperfect?). Direct access to network drives. WWW introduced (as we know it today) 1994 (Netscape). explosion begins – (hotmail launched in 1996)

5 Facts and Figures there were 360 million Hotmail users worldwide. in November, 71% of worldwide traffic was spam! despite spam filters 19% of spam s were still delivered to corporate inboxes. the average number of s sent and received each day by corporate users was 110. it is estimated that over 300 Billion s are sent every day (2.8 Million every second). 75% of all accounts belong to consumers, 25% are corporate. Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © pre-dates the internet. The first was sent by Ray Tomlinson in 1971 (41 years ago). In 2011: there were billion accounts worldwide (44% of population)

6 Bits, Bytes and Yottabytes 8 bits = 1 Byte 1,024 bytes = 1 Kilobyte 1000 Kilobytes (approx) = 1 Megabyte 1000 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte (1 [s/l] DVD = 4.7 GB) 1000 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte (~213 DVD’s) 1000 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte (~213,000 DVD’s) 1000 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte (~213 million DVD’s) 1000 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte (~213 billion DVD’s) 1000 Zettabytes = 1 Yottabyte or (~213 trillion DVD’s) approx 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or bytes Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © HD 1.4 MB

7 Kramenna Pty Ltd © The Information Explosion – Facts and Predictions (according to IDC.com) The last time storage technology kept pace with information growth was Print, film, magnetic, and optical storage media produced about 5 Exabyte of information in 2002 = Approx. 37,000 libraries the size of the US Library of Congress (17 million books) ~ 629 billion books.Exabyte A 2011 University of Southern California study estimated the total human information storage capacity in 2007 was 256 Exabytes (256 billion Gigabytes). Based on the above figures that’s enough data to fill approximately 15 average size libraries for every person on the planet (6.6 Billion in 2007).

8 More Facts and Predictions By 2020, it is predicted our digital universe will be 44 times as big as it was in Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © A Zettabyte = 1000 Exabyte

9 Spread of the Internet Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © ,016 Mil 500 Mil 273 Mil 236 Mil 140 Mil 77 Mil 24 Mil USERS

10 Internet Penetration Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © Mil users (Aust) 3.6 Mil users (NZ) * 13.3 Mil Facebook accounts

11 The Real Facts Organisations are only responsible for 30% of total information generated Exabyte = approx. 127,800,000,000 DVD’s Written words are insignificant, amounting to less than 0.1% of the total generated – 127,800,000 DVD’s Only 5% of the information that is created is “structured”, meaning it comes in a standard format of words or numbers. The rest are things like pictures, phone calls, digital radio & TV signals etc. The amount of reading people do has almost tripled since 1980, mainly thanks to all the text on the internet.

Average growth rate of organisational traffic is 40% per annum. In Australia (2011) average growth in Storage Area Networks (SAN’s) was 18% (3% less than the world average). Not keeping pace with data growth. In a 2010 survey of 1000 companies, it was estimated over 80% were retaining data for longer than required.

13 Can we capture everything we are supposed to?.... What is the best way to try and capture everything?.... What about Recordkeeping? Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © Principles still valid?.. Jury is still out, very unlikely right now! Depends on who you are and the Value & Risk involved. YES – a record is still a record and it should be captured! Automated Classification! What must be captured?..

14 Some Key Recordkeeping Issues Definition of what constitutes a record! End Users have been asked to become recordkeeping experts. Functional classification may be necessary but users hate it. Hard copy is hanging on. Lack of time to capture manually. Abundance of local databases. Web 2.0 Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) ©

15 Where To From Here? Investigate automated classification tools Kramenna Pty Ltd (trading as Records Solutions) © Some Suggestions The Records Survey – what is critical? Capture with tomorrow in mind! Be strong – tell your bosses about the risks e.g. use of social media (compliance is rarely a strong motivator!)
