Iron Mountain Wins Award for its Records and Information Management 360 (RIM360) Customer Engagement Framework

Iron Mountain Incorporated® (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced its Records and Information Management 360 (RIM360) framework has been selected as a SiriusDecisions® EMEA ROI Award winner. The award recognises European organisations that have achieved strong sales, marketing and/or product alignment, resulting in improved company performance. The winners will present at 2016 Summit Europe in London from 26-27 September 2016.

Iron Mountain’s RIM360 framework provides a comprehensive approach to transforming customers’ information management programmes, using six customer needs-based profiles to identify opportunities for advancement and then build action plans to address them. The six profiles are based on primary research collected by a 2013 survey of 56,000 business leaders across compliance, legal, procurement, IT, real estate, operations, records management and shared services functions, asking them to prioritize their most acute information needs. Leveraging this research-based point of view, Iron Mountain representatives can partner with clients to identify and prioritise key information challenges and deliver them a solutions roadmap and a financial business case to a more compliant, more cost effective programme.

Using RIM360 over the last three years, Iron Mountain representatives are able to lead a more pointed dialogue based on common customer needs, leading to more successful sales engagements to uncover and address those needs. These data-driven conversations give Iron Mountain representatives a deeper understanding of the spectrum of customer needs and how they can be solved, which results in a significant increase (more than five times) in average deal size in the 12 countries where the framework is used. Additionally, when Iron Mountain uses RIM360 to partner with customers in creating a financial business case for a more comprehensive information governance programme, they together estimate an average of 40 percent in annual total cost of ownership savings.

“At Iron Mountain we take innovation very seriously, embracing it as a strategy to anticipate, and help solve, the ever-changing challenges customers face,” said Amy Perras, director of Global Marketing for Iron Mountain. “RIM360 refocused our sales, marketing and product teams by placing the needs of our customers at the heart of our strategy, and provided us a way to get closer to business objectives of our customers, which solutions best address them, and provide a return on investment. It was a trigger that set us on a journey towards deeper engagement with our customers, and we continuously refine our understanding of their needs through every interaction and ongoing market research. Through the RIM360 framework, we draw on our many years of expertise combined with market intelligence to help our customers clearly articulate their current and future priorities and equip them with the tools to accelerate the adoption and achievement of their goals.”

“We are pleased to recognise Iron Mountain for their RIM360 go-to-market approach as an example of best practice customer centric framework,” said Tony Jaros, executive vice president and Chief Research and Product Officer at SiriusDecisions. “The results are indicative of the creation of a robust framework that’s integrated across their go-to-market teams to uncover and advance customers' objectives.”

In addition to the SiriusDecisions 2016 Europe Summit, Iron Mountain will be showcasing RIM360 live along with other innovations and solutions at the ARMA Live Conference in San Antonio, TX from Sept. 25-27.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls?

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
