Not so long ago, corporate record-keeping was a conceptually simple affair. Today, the information that needs to be retained and secured is mostly not in paper form, but in a combination of digital formats including electronic documents, scanned images and email. To date, companies have mostly ignored the dangers of inadequate records management, taking their chances on technologies meant for other purposes, such as backup tapes and email archives often with disastrous results.
An enterprise approach to records management must be flexible enough to support both formal record-keeping, consistent with standards and simple retention management that does not require records management professionals.
This white paper explains how records management solutions can be deployed flexibly and cost-effectively across the enterprise to meet the full spectrum of records management needs.
