So I wrote an article on how I’ve lost my faith in the US DoD 5015.2 Records Management Application Standard. I had originally planned to post it here, but changed my mind when it became obvious that it was going to be very long (even by my own Dickensian standards).
I was also reluctant to publish it on this site because it isn’t specifically about SharePoint information lifecycle management. That reluctance quickly abated though, when it occurred to me that the DoD Standard is probably the single biggest reason so many misinformed people have so often claimed that ‘you can’t do records management in SharePoint.’
But in the end, I still thought it made sense to publish it somewhere else, and the good people at AIIM were kind enough to let me post it to their site. If you are a Records Management professional, particularly in the US market, you might find it an interesting read. You can find it here.
