To kick off the ECM Talk podcast series (and to take advantage of the fact that Alan was over in the United Kingdom on holiday), James Lappin and Alan Pelz-Sharpe met up in Winchester on the 29 July 2010 to discuss records management.
James argued that the problem records managers hav is not convincing people that records management is important, but rather in convincing organisations that there are feasible steps that they can take to improve their records management.
Alan talked about the danger of organisations assuming that if they purchased software that met standards such as MoReq and DoD 5015 then their records management needs were covered.
We went on to discuss the pros and cons of e-mail archiving systems - with James questioning whether an e-mail archiving system can function as a useable information resource within an organisation.
