What is Records Management?
Records Management is the practice of maintaining the records of an organisation from the time they are created up to their eventual disposal. They may include classifying, storing, securing and destruction of records. Records Management is primarily concerned with the evidence of an organisations activities and is usually applied according to the value of the records rather than their physical format.
SharePoint 2010 broadens the scope of records management by delivering core capabilities across the entire SharePoint platform. As a result, people can declare all content within SharePoint as a record, and companies can manage a central records archive or support in-place records management. Companies can better adhere to corporate policies and increase accuracy of content classification, making it easier for record managers to manage and monitor records management solutions.
