IRMS010 – David Gould on HP Control Point

In this podcast James Lappin interviews David Gould, Global product manager for HP ControlPoint.

David describes four primary uses to which HP ContolPoint is being put:

  • Clean up of legacy data
  • Auto-classification of content
  • In-place records management
  • Content migration

He discusses the product’s ability to analyse content held in different repositories/applications, and to take action on that content.    That action might be to:

  •  protect the content
  • move it
  • delete it
  • enhance its metadata
  • classify it
  • apply a retention rule to it.

David discusses the relationship between HP ControlPoint and the company’s electronic document and records management system – HP Records Manager. He describes how the two products can be used separately or in tandem.

Along the way David discusses questions such as the extent to which auto-classification is being adopted as a technique by clients, and the issues around archiving objects such as SharePoint sites.

IRMS009 – Jean Mourain on RSD Glass and the manage-in-place approach to records management

In this podcast Jean Mourain, Vice President of Global Strategy for RSD, is interviewed by James Lappin.

Jean discusses RSD Glass – an information governance platform that uses a manage-in-place approach and enables an organisation to hold its retention policies and classifications and apply them across many different repositories and applications.

Jean explains why RSD took the decision to enter the information governance market, and how RSD Glass works. He describes how RSD Glass approaches the challenge of managing content in shared drives, e-mail and SharePoint.

Jean reports a strong desire from clients to minimise the impact of records management/information governance on end-users. He discusses the question of whether or not it would ever be possible to have good information governance and records management with no impact on the end user.
