RIM (records and information management) professionals work in programs that are constantly affected by change -- in workforce demographics; technology; the legal, regulatory, and competitive environments; use of information; and expectations of how RIM will contribute to enterprise goals. Accenture, the largest consultant company in the world, identified "Eight Trends That Are Transforming IT" creating a new technology ecosystem. These and other strategic changes are intended to make the management of information more effective, to help it buttress enterprise goals, to ensure that it fosters collaboration and sound decision making, and generally to wring more value out of it.
