Organizations have been creating electronic records and digital information systems for over 50 years, but most of them struggle with appraisal and retention scheduling of electronic content. Organizations need to carefully examine their record systems to ensure that content can be managed through its entire lifecycle and be destroyed as soon as possible, transferred to a new system or storage environment, and if necessary transferred to an archival environment.

This session will describe how records management can be positioned as a business enabler for the modern enterprise. We'll pay particular attention to new developments in records and information management and the impact of digital transformation on organizations.
