Records management and data management: closing the gap

Records management and data management: closing the gap Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the information landscape of organizations by focusing on the evolution of the fields of so‐called records management and data management. Design/methodology/approach – The author draws on his personal experience with the National Archives of Canada. Findings – Records management and data management quite literally mean the same thing. There is no “gap”, as indicated in the title. The only gaps that exist are in the perceptions of what each concept means and the functions and status of the information jurisdictions that have claimed each for their own. Originality/value – The paper recommends an integration of what has been perceived to be the disparate fields of records management and data management, finding that records or data should be managed from a global and corporately defined perspective http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Records Management Journal Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the information landscape of organizations by focusing on the evolution of the fields of so‐called records management and data management. Design/methodology/approach – The author draws on his personal experience with the National Archives of Canada. Findings – Records management and data management quite literally mean the same thing. There is no “gap”, as indicated in the title. The only gaps that exist are in the perceptions of what each concept means and the functions and status of the information jurisdictions that have claimed each for their own. Originality/value – The paper recommends an integration of what has been perceived to be the disparate fields of records management and data management, finding that records or data should be managed from a global and corporately defined perspective
