Corporate memory consists of all the active and historical information in an organization that is worth sharing, managing, and preserving. It encompasses everything from procedure manuals and press releases to correspondence, contracts, research notes, and more.Managing this memory is key to effective operations: lost documents needlessly cost businesses, government agencies, and other organizations billions of dollars worldwide each year. While technology can play a useful role in solving the problem, it is also a major cause, fueling the explosive growth of document production and muddying the waters through constantly changing software and hardware.This timely book explores the concept of corporate memory and discusses how records can be managed in the electronic age. By management, the author doesn't mean wholesale preservation, but the task of organizing, evaluating, and weeding out materials in addition to the technical job of integrating media and spanning different generations of technology.Readers will learn how to evaluate and store files and explore IT-based solutions to the problems generated by a backlog of multiformatted information and the endless production of word-processed documents. System requirements such as retention scheduling memory, text retrieval capabilities, and capture frequency are all taken into consideration.
