DESCRIPTION:
WORKING WITH IT SPECIALISTS ON ENTERPRISE DATA RETENTION PROJECTS:
This presentation examines the "how" of working with IT specialists to
schedule electronic records for retention.  The speaker will present a
seven-step methodology for scheduling electronic records residing in
production applications, as well as recommended strategies for implementing
the data retention program over several years.  This material comes from the
new book Electronic Records Retention: New Strategies for Data Life Cycle
Management (ARMA International, 2003), which was co-authored by the
presenter.

RECORDS MANAGEMENT ISSUES IN E-COMMERCE ENVIRONMENTS:
During the last several years, businesses throughout the world have
accelerated the shift from executing commercial transactions via paper
documents to the Web and related computer technologies.  The goal is to
achieve much greater efficiencies and overall competitiveness, but what are
the implications for recordkeeping and records management?  This
presentation examines this question.  We will look at the legal basis for
e-business transactions, some common ways of implementing them, and then
conclude with a discussion of records retention and other records management
issues.

CONTENT MANAGEMENT:  THE NEW PARADIGM FOR ENTERPRISE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT:
This presentation provides an overview of content management -
enterprise-wide efforts to optimize the value of information assets by
enhancing the accessibility of all information objects, regardless of type
or repository - and the several technology solutions required for the
successful deployment of content management initiatives.  These include:
document imaging / digitization, text retrieval / document search engines,
electronic document management software, workflow automation tools, data
warehousing / mining software, enterprise information portals, and content
classification and taxonomy tools.  Several case studies will be presented
to illustrate the deployment of these initiatives.
