Records Management

Records Management, which is a product offering that is most often part of an Enterprise Content Management Platform, is the process of maintaining control of a specific version of a document so that it cannot be changed once it is declared as an official record.

Records Management products most often are certified to be compliant with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) 5015.2 specification for Electronic Records Management. One critical feature of an RM offering is the policy management capability. It allows records to be maintained and later deleted according to a policy developed by the enterprise.
