April 201 2021 - Beyond ECM: The Role Records Professionals Have In Information System Development


Overview: Electronic information today far surpasses an organization's physical records footprint. Does your organization store its information on share drives or in the cloud? Do those repositories look more like a digital haystack where document go to perish? Can you easily find the information you need to support business needs? Are you involved in the active management of these repositories with your IT department?

Records management is no longer a back office function dealing with physical records. Today, records managers are expected to possess skills in information management, such as information system design, business analytics, content analytics, enterprise search and retrieval, digital preservation, content automation, information governance, and so much more. We have the skill and knowledge, we just need to get others to know.  

This webinar presentation discusses how records professionals are important partners with their IT department. The presentation will also address how a records professional needs to expand their role to that of an information professional. In this new role, the records professional and IT collaborate in the design of intelligent information systems to better enable efficient use and retrieval of information assets. Working with IT, we can bring years of classification, business analysis, risk management, governance, and project management skills to the table.

This webinar session will cover the following points:

  1. The Records Professional as an Information Manager;
  2. Skills and attributes of the Records and Information Professional;
  3. Working Collaboratively with IT; and 
  4. Designing Information Systems from a Records Viewpoint.
