Citation Mapping - Evolved

Everybody seems to show how this or that document compares to a bunch of other documents. More than half of it is malarkey. Until recently compliance mapping was a huge endeavor and very costly. Organizations that didn’t have the manpower or couldn’t absorb the cost either didn’t really do the work or they just guessed at the answer.

There are four scenarios we encounter when looking at a set of Citations mapped to any other set of Citations. We’ve broken these down into the Consulting Army approach, the Super Computer approach, the Used Car Salesman approach, and the UCF Mapper approach.

How to Evaluate a Mapping Approach

Here are some questions to ask whomever is providing your mapping.

If the provider can’t answer at least six of these questions with a “yes,” they do not have a Modern approach or a Unified Compliance offering. And if they checked Citation to Citation mapping, ensure that they can prove they are really checking each and every Citation to Citation pairing possible. We’ve never seen that to be a workable solution, but then again, we’ve never seen a Unicorn either – maybe they exist.
