So, what makes a record different from any other piece of information - electronic or physical? How does one identify something as a record? Who gets to decide?

In a few recent blog posts, we talked about the survey we did with ASUG of SAP professionals. Now, let's dive into the data a little deeper.
The below blog post comes from a white paper produced by ASUG and Gimmal: Cruising Along the Information Highway: Understanding your SAP EIM Environment. It discusses the results of a recent survey of the ASUG community surrounding information management best practice awareness. The data is crystal clear: Almost everyone uses SharePoint. The near-optimal penetration of Microsoft Office 365 as a productivity suite means SharePoint is often the first line of defense when it comes to storing and retrieving documents.

Earlier this year, we unveiled our superhero theme, inviting records managers to join us at their regional ARMA events (as well as ARMA Live!) and answer the question: "what kind of records management hero are you?"
Technology is an enabler for sure. But without the right resources and direction, it can also be an inhibiter. Once an enterprise decides that all corporate information has the potential of being a corporate asset, the next step is to establish a continuous program to identify, improve, and protect this asset just like any other.
