We already know that an effective records management system will help you get the most out of your records and decrease the costs and risks associated with poorly managed records. So how do you decide which is the most effective, and what about the implementation process? This interesting information came to us from IT Pro Portal in their article, “5 steps to enterprise-wide integrated records management.”

A records management system is intended to store content for a long period of time, and to keep that content accessible while the correct retention and destruction policies are carried out.

Content is no longer centralized. More and more organizations are choosing to maintain their various content applications and repositories instead of using one centralized repository. However, regardless of the use and the place where the content is stored, the same rules and regulations apply to archiving content.
