What is Records Management?

Records management (RM), also known as records and information management (RIM), is an organizational function responsible for the creation and maintenance of a system to deal with informational records throughout a company’s lifecycle. RM includes everything from the creation of a record to its disposal.

Essentially, any information which is generated by an organization in the course of doing business is considered a record. Some records may be transient working files, kept only for a short amount of time, other records may need to be kept for a lifetime by law.

Did you Know?

“There has been an average of 30% increase in growth in emails sent from 2008 and this is growing year-on-year.”

The Born Digital Movement refers to the creation of records in a digital format, rather than the digitization of analog/physical information (which formed the bulk of recordkeeping not too many years ago). As organizations move to the cloud, more and more recordkeeping only exists within the digital world.

So, What is a Record?

A record is a record, regardless of the format of the information.


It is the CONTENT and FUNCTION that determines a record – regardless of where it may exist:
E-mail and attachments, websites, databases, text messages, instant messages, voice mail (can now be converted to e-mail), digital photos, scanned documents, outlook calendars, information on handheld devices (PDA), spreadsheets, word documents, wikis, blogs, Twitter….
