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.
