In this episode Alan Pelz-Sharpe explains why he thinks advanced analytics tools will come into mainstream business document management and collaboration systems over the next few years. He discusses the different things that large organisations use advanced analytics for (automatic classification; checking communications for suspicious activites and/or for compliance breaches). Alan and James adebate the question as to whether or not advanced analytics could have records management uses.
James Lappin asks Alan whether it would be feasible to:
- equip an information governance tool with records management rules such as retention rules and a records classifications
- get the information governance tool to apply those records management rules to content held in the many different applications used within an organisation.
Alan said that it was perfectly possible, but the key limiting factor was the scope of each application's ApplicationProgramme Interface (API).
The most important standard for APIs is the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS). At the time of writing CMIS supports basic document management taks but not records management tasks
