Making Information Accessible:

The new model for records management

Tuesday April 18, 2017

Orange County Sanitation District Board Room


Lunch Provided

Technology has changed the way we interact with data and information and the expectation for its access. We see examples daily in how this is changing the ways we live and how business operates.


However, records management is still struggling to evolve past its manual, store and retrieve model. This is apparent in the way physical information is boxed and stored in record centers, and the way data is now stored in electronic systems. We can do better. The previous models no longer apply and there is a new paradigm to embrace.


  • The new expectation for information access
  • The end of the store and retrieve model of records management
  • Developing a new strategy in a hybrid environment


Making information accessible is the new opportunity for our profession. It changes the way we operate and how we add value to our organizations.
