GOVERNANCE AND COMPLIANCE
In today’s highly regulated and litigious business environment, having proper Information Governance is a necessity for organizations to minimize and mitigate risk.
According to the IT analyst Gartner, Information Governance is defined as “The specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to encourage desirable behavior in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archival and deletion of information. It includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information in enabling an organization to achieve its goals.”
This definition is important because from a legal standpoint, an organization’s Information Governance must not only serve as a strong deterrent to the improper or misuse of content, it must also be defensible in the event that litigation does occur.
Axyon has a strong history of delivering Governance related solutions. Successful projects have been in the following areas:
- Governance Model Development
- Records Management
- E-Mail Management
- Litigation Readiness / e-Discovery
ENTERPRISE CONTENT MANAGEMENT | ECM
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is the capture, management, storage, preservation, and delivery of content across an organization. It is the management of a company’s unstructured information, in both paper and electronic form and it is needed today more than ever.
Organizations continue to experience an exponential increase in the development and dissemination of content throughout their enterprise, including documents, records and emails. This has led to an average of most companies having over 80% of their total information assets be comprised of unstructured information.
The result is an ever-growing need for organizations to effectively manage their unstructured content if they are to stay competitive in their marketplace. ECM allows companies to leverage their unstructured content quickly and easily, resulting in higher productivity, reduced operational costs, increased customer service and improved compliance.

BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT
Business Process Management (BPM) is an approach to achieve maximum efficiency within a company’s business processes.
In using BPM to streamline their most critical business processes, from design through execution, companies are gaining the agility, transparency and control needed to realize significant competitive advantages. They are able to derive maximum value from their business processes, while minimizing the amount of resources required to do it.
As a methodology, BPM is systematic in nature and is typically applied in the following stages:
- Continually Improve
An organization with a strong BPM implementation will stand out in their nimble response to change, efficient cost structures and enhanced revenue models. Through BPM they are able to experience optimum growth levels by operating within a flexible, compliant framework in their critical decision making.
Axyon has extensive experience in implementing successful BPM solutions. Our BPM practice is defined by a combination of workflow expertise, technical experience and most importantly practical business knowledge. We enable our clients to reach their business goals more quickly with the successful mapping of their unique business needs into a holistic BPM solution.
Contractual agreements have clauses, terms, conditions, commitments, milestone, and other details that must be tracked and managed throughout the entire contract life-cycle to maximize agreed-upon benefits and minimize potential penalties and other losses.
These legal documents are usually stored in legal offices or filing cabinets, rarely are managed, and are usually only reviewed again when a problem arises or when the agreement is about to expire.
Axyon provides a contract management solution that enables organizations to proactively manage contracts in order to better understand the associated risks, obligations, and benefits of each contract. As a result, the organizations can more effectively manage business relationships with both vendors and customers. And these are just some of the benefits that can be achieved by implementing a contract management solution in your organization.
The pace of global business operations is accelerating all the time. Today the key to competitiveness is keeping information secure, backed up, and easily accessible. In order to fulfill compliance guidelines, regulatory legislation requires that business critical documents are efficiently administered and preserved throughout their entire life-cycle. Contract Management is the proactive and methodical management of a contract from initiation through fulfillment, and modification to termination.
Contract Management provides mitigation of many of the contracting risks that stem from non-compliance to negotiated terms and conditions of agreements and bad contract management.
DIGITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT
Most businesses have seen significant growth in the amount and size of their digital content in recent years and as such it has become just as important to properly manage it as any other content type within an organization.
Digital Asset Management (DAM) makes media work for businesses by providing a secure centralized repository for all rich media files so that they can be stored, managed, published and re-used.
Axyon is well versed in delivering DAM solutions but equally importantly, we are also experienced in the related areas of Social Media and Mobility. In the Digital Marketing Age these disciplines have enormous impact on one another and in most cases should not be considered without understanding how they are interrelated. In a basic example, DAM can help to maximize Social Media by ensuring that assets are properly reused but not accidentally reposted because of DAM tracking and usage features.
There are a number of benefits associated with DAM including: the elimination of costs associated with the recreation of lost work, accelerated creativity and production cycles, the maintenance of brand consistency and integrity, and the ability to measure return on marketing investments based on asset usage.
If your organization is interested in learning more about how to maximize the use of its digital assets, while reducing associated costs, Axyon can help.

PHYSICAL ASSET MANAGEMENT
Physical Asset Management has become an increasingly important practice, with a number of useful applications for businesses that need to control costs and maintain compliance with a growing list of regulations.
When considering the application for plant and facilities management, a Physical Asset Management solution can provide secure access to important documents such as service contracts, maintenance procedures, safety manuals, and even engineering drawings. For example, it can be the difference in a maintenance worker properly servicing equipment according to the company’s most recent procedures and potential equipment damage or worse personal injury because an old manual was accidentally used.
In the context of a capital construction project, Physical Asset Management offers the ability to manage the complete life-cycle of all project documentation, comply with regulations, and increase overall project collaboration. Architects, engineers and contractors can more effectively work together and coordinate efforts in order to streamline the design, build and operation of a project, saving both time and money.
Axyon understands the risks associated with improper Physical Asset Management and works with clients to help them deploy a solution that will mitigate those risks, ensure compliance and manage costs.
