Laserfiche Renews DoD 5015.2 Certification, Extends It To Physical Records

logo_laserfiche_2009.png With 2010 a mere two weeks away, Laserfiche (news, site) is already setting the bar in records management by announcing that it has renewed its DoD 5015.2 V3 certification, and added certification for physical records management.

The physical records certification comes with the integration with Infolinx a provider of both custom and commercial-off-the-shelf records and information management system software, and a Professional Developer Program partner of Laserfiche.

On its own, Laserfiche Records Management Edition (RME) is a version of Laserfiche's enterprise content management system is that enables users track the life cycle of records in Laserfiche repositories and ensures compliance with the regulatory criteria for DoD 5015.2 V3 certification.

DoD 5015.2 V3 certification also means that Laserfiche has developed an information management system that complies with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, USA PATRIOT Act, SEC and FINRA, amongst others.

For its part, Infolinx brings to the table barcode and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology which enables physical file and electronic record tracking as well as retention schedule management, color-coded label printing and document imaging into RME.

By extending RME to include physical records management, Laserfiche now has more certified components than any other vendor, Tom Wayman Product Strategy VP says, although there will undoubtedly some vendors who disagree.

With a large base of federal, state and local government organizations in its client portfolio, the commercial value of achieving DoD 5015.2 V3 cannot be overestimated and with mounting compliance and transparency pressures across the industry it is only a matter of time before vendors in the records management space are going to have to go the same route.

Open Text Extends Content Integration for Oracle Applications

Open Text Extends Content Integration for Oracle Applications

Content is everywhere, and it is not cheap to manage it. Open Text (news, site) says it wants to lower the costs by connecting transactional data with business content behind each transaction through one app.

The new Open Text Content Access for Oracle application provides a single point of access to data for Oracle E-Business Suite users. Oracle E-Business Suite is a set of enterprise applications dealing mainly with ERP, lifecycle management and CRM.

The content access app works with both Oracle and non-Oracle content and allows users to link structured data in Oracle transactions with business content (electronic and paper assets, such as e-mail and contracts) managed in Open Text Enterprise CMS suite of products, while also covering the GRC angle.

Usually, content needs to be re-used across multiple applications, even though some of it is tied to a specific one (ERP, CRM, etc.). This is when Open Text’s new app gives a way of sharing business content across different applications, while managing access, retention, audit history, compliance, risk and other document and records management related activities.

As a side note: Oracle and Open Text’s relationship goes as far back as 10 years, and OTEX says it plans to continue its ECM technologies development using Oracle Fusion middleware.
