The best way to establish an EIM strategy is conducting an "EIM strategy and roadmap" project. The purpose of such initiatives is to:
  • Gain an understanding of and consensus on key business objectives, business risks, business and technical opportunities, organizational impacts, and informational and technology needs across the organization.
  • Learn how well these objectives and requirements are currently being met.
  • Assess the organization's current information management maturity for the functional components of EIM.
  • Determine the feasibility of an EIM program by reviewing the current information environment.
  • Define a high-level architectural vision for EIM.
  • Develop recommendations for the logical progression of phased implementation steps that will enable the organization to realize this future vision.
  • Define the technology and processes required to meet the EIM implementation goals.
