Metadata Mapping for EDRMS Systems - Comprehensive


Duration 2 days.jpg


Document metadata is the key to a successful EDRMS (Electronic Document/Records Management System) deployment. It is also a vital prerequisite for the critical recordkeeping automation processes. And it’s an essential factor in end user acceptance. Insufficient and/or poor metadata is often cited as the cause of the failure of EDRMS projects. Attend this intensive 2-day workshop to learn the elements and structure of metadata, how to define and deploy it, and how to leverage metadata to enable fully automated recordkeeping. This course is designed and delivered by Bruce Miller, author, independent consultant, and leading expert in electronic recordkeeping, and author of “Managing Records in SharePoint”. After completing this course you’ll be able to apply your new knowledge and insight to define the right types and quantity of metadata, influence the design and configuration of the EDRMS, leverage it in a modern retention schedule and other recordkeeping processes, and estimate the effort level required to define and deploy necessary metadata.
