One of the lesser known responsibilities of records management is to identify the best technology available to provide the best service available within the allowed parameters, financial and otherwise. This takes time, a lot of time. And what happens when poor records-management leads to poor employee-management? Fierce Content Management brought this information to us in their article, “When poor records-management leads to poor employee-management.”

Human resources isn’t always the place you instantly think of when it comes to data management, but professionals have asserted that human resources departments are doing themselves a disservice, along with every person they interview or hire, by not making the most of the data collected and contained in the massive amount of records that HR departments accumulate.

With any database project regardless of its source or size, it is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy. How the content is classified impacts the findability of your data. Professionals should look for an experienced builder of solid standards-based taxonomies to associate content for appropriate machine-assisted indexing. Access Innovations can provide solutions that are ANSI compliant.
