Enterprise Content Management case study


The client had implemented their digital journey starting 2015, where Datamatics helped them set up their ECM platform on IBM FileNet Content Manager and Document Capture on IBM DataCap. Organizational users continued to use the platform for over four years, generating much digital footprint for the company.

As the organization became digital savvy, it came with the responsibility of compliance adherence. The client had no digital means of associating retention policies to digital content to be purged as per the regulations.


Datamatics studied the licensing availability of IBM Enterprise Records since IBM FileNet was already an implemented ECM solution, accepted within the organization. Enterprise records do have the option of creating Fileplans using a well-defined user interface. However, the client's need was to develop 1700+ Record Categories, a very laborious, time-consuming, and error-prone activity.

Mapping templates were created to help business teams talk to individual organizational units and mapped as per Records Management Taxonomy. Datamatics development team created a utility read through these mappings and declare the records in bulk.
