Information Governance has become gradually an important area due to the explosion of data in numerous formats at diverse levels of any organization. An Information Governance platform may have the capability to improve the data quality and may also support in leveraging strategic decision making. There is a growing trend to move the data from on-premise software to the new on-demand cloud-based solutions to support the growing needs of the business computing services which has the potential to lower the costs and mitigating the risks. Cloud computing is considered as a utility that is massively scalable and can be readily modified, the way we may control the temperature in the furnace using the thermostat which has the potential to save energy. There are many organizations that are investigating the Cloud to see if the application can meet their information Governance needs such as eDiscovery, compliance, law, security, risk management, records management, and business operations. Information Governance is a super-discipline that embraces components of several key fields as mentioned above (Robert F. Smallwood, 2014).
