Records & Information Management (RIM)

What is it about?

Every organization needs assigned responsibilities and an efficient infrastructure to manage business information throughout its life cycle according to the information elephant model.

The proper preservation and timely destruction of business documents, in addition to legal obligations, is a mandatory requirement for successful digitization. Systematic records management (document management) cannot therefore be left to chance. It does not matter whether the documents are digital or paper documents. Records & Information Management (RIM) plays a central role in the intensively growing digital transformation and can only be controlled and steered by means of clearly organized responsibility - in this respect, RIM is an essential factor in company-wide information governance.
