SharePoint Server 2013 Offers a Number of Advantages for Records Management Applications

SharePoint is a ubiquitous application across most large organizations in the private, public and not-for profit areas. The platform offers these organizations a rich set of features useful for the design of the type of document retention program uniquely suitable for compliance reporting purposes.

SharePoint Server 2013 maintains this appeal with a lot of new features. In a video tutorial series on Records Management with SharePoint 2013, John Holliday, an acknowledged subject matter expert on the topic and a published author, presents these features along with best practices for records management with SharePoint 2013. This series of video tutorials is available to anyone with a subscription to SharePoint-Videos.com. This series will also be available in the near future to individuals and groups wishing to acquire a training set like this one for local unlimited viewing. If you would like to be notified when the set is available for purchase, please contact us. We’ll be happy to notify you once the set is available for purchase.

The first of theses video tutorials, SharePoint 2013 Records Management Course Modules Overview briefly speaks to the technology of Records Management as an application on the SharePoint platform, highlighting components of an overall records management solution either included, or missing from this new server platform.

This class also talks to the steps administrators should take to prepare records collected from users for management by the planned system. Each of the important activities in this phase of developing a process have little to do with computing, and a lot to do with establishing policies like “Content Lifecycle Modeling” and a “File Plan”, along with a system of classifying records (likely to be taxonomic in nature). Only after each of these cornerstones has been established can an organization begin to envision the computing processes required for the records management effort.

In fact, as John Holliday points out in this video tutorial, it makes sense to handle each of these cornerstones in a technology agnostic manner than to try to build them specifically for SharePoint.
