Modernizing Records Management and Improving Information Economics (November 27th, 2012)

The Presidential Memorandum-- Managing Government Records, issued on November 28, 2011, compels Federal agencies to reform and modernize records management practices. Efficient records management through improved processes, people, and technology can significantly help agencies improve information economics, better meet federal record keeping requirements, protect valuable historical records, and safeguard confidential and classified records. This seminar will help the Federal Community:

Leverage lessons learned from what other Federal agencies, such as the US State Department, have been able to accomplish to improve their records and information management program.

Understand what technology is available today that can help automate and instrument records retention policy, so they can manage records more efficiently and retain agency information based on its value.

See a live demo of machine-learning technology that can be utilized to automatethe categorization of records.

Collaborate with other Federal agencies attending the seminar on best practices and techniques for achieving the target objectives set forth by the Presidential Memorandum.
