Concept, Information System, and Process: Exploring the Relationships Between Records and Organizational Memory Towards an Integration

Qianqian Yang

Abstract

The utilization of cognitive technologies in records management and the richness of information resources stored in current organizational memory information system (OMIS) highlight the vague positioning of OMIS and electronic records management system (ERMS). This article provides an analysis on the relationships between records and organizational memory from three dimensions including the concept, information system and management process by adopting comparative methodology and literature research. On comparing the nature between the terms, it clarifies that records should function as raw material to be transferred into knowledge of organizational memory in practice. Accordingly, the gap between OMIS and ERMS that fails to actualize the connection between records and organizational memory is explained. In order to facilitate sufficient knowledge management, a possible conceptual solution is proposed to procedurally integrate management of records and organizational memory with OMIS and ERMS. Further noteworthy research are also provided according to the analysis.
