IBM Content Manager OnDemand (CMOD) provides enterprise-wide report management solution for computer-generated reports and many other type of content. The most recent release of CMOD added key features to help companies to meet compliance requirements:
Enhanced Retention Management
The new feature, Enhance Retention Management is one of the most valuable features created for CMOD. It provides an immediate process to find and hold documents to prevent normal document deletion process. It enables you to lock down individual documents within a report that is managed by time-based retention.
This is critical to a company because any company might be forced to go through a legal inquiry. When that time happens, all documents related to the inquiry are required to be retained and not deleted during the inquiry process.
With the new Enhanced Retention Management feature, CMOD provides document retention management with one or more of the following ways:
Applying hold on documents
There are many ways to hold documents captured and managed by CMOD. One way is to first search for the documents and select them; then, you click the Action drop-down box and select Apply Hold to hold the documents. See the figure below. The user interface used for CMOD in this example is powered by IBM Content Navigator. When putting documents on hold, you also specify the hold reason.
