Selecting recordkeeping software to suit your organisation August 28, 2008

The decision to select a product to manage digital records must be driven by an organisation’s needs and closely linked to business benefits. Generally an organisation will develop a specification document which identifies the functionality and requirements for the organisation.

Various software products may have different strengths in various functions (such as document management and records management) and it is important to be aware of the different strengths of different products and have a clear understanding of the business needs of the organisation.

In June 2008 the NSW Government Chief Information Office developed an Information Asset Management Maturity Model to assist public offices in determining their current capability of capturing information assets as well as assess their future requirements.
