An Overview of NARA's Newest Guidance on Digitizing Permanent Federal Records

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the nation's record keeper. We identify, protect, preserve, and make publicly available the historically valuable records of all three branches of the federal government. NARA is also the nation’s records manager. That is to say, NARA’s Office of the Chief Records Officer for the U.S. Government leads records management throughout the federal government and assesses the effectiveness of federal records management policies and programs. Part of that work is to issue guidance to federal agencies on a wide variety of records management topics.

What are the Common Digital Transformation Checkpoints?

Digital Transformation and Intelligent Information Management Here at AIIM, we talk a lot about Digital Transformation and its link with the practice of Intelligent Information Management. But, what exactly is the link between IIM and Digital Transformation? We explore this topic thoroughly in this previous post, but in summary: Every organization is on – or should be on – a Digital Transformation journey. At the heart of this Transformation journey is the drive toward 1) understanding, anticipating, and redefining internal and external customer experiences.

These drivers require information – in a leverageable form. Today, that’s not always an easy task as the volume, velocity, and variety of information that most organizations need to manage, store, and protect now exceeds their ability to even marginally keep pace with big content challenges. That’s where IIM comes in.

AIIM calls this Intelligent Information Management (IIM).
