Records Management (RM)

Records management (RM) technologies enable organizations to enforce policies and rules for the retention and disposition of content required for documenting business transactions, in addition to automating the management of their record-retention policies. These technologies, implemented with well-formulated and consistently enforced RM strategies and policies, form an essential part of the organizationwide life cycle management of information. RM principles and technologies apply to both physical and electronic content.
