Organizational Records Systems - An Alternative View to (Enterprise) Information Systems

Sherry Li Xie, Guanyan (Amelie) Fan

Abstract

The field of Information Systems (ISs) has been around since the 1960s (Hirschheim and Kleinand, 2011) and the notion of Enterprise Information Systems has been fully acknowledged for close to 30 years (Xu, 2007). Long existing in organizations or enterprises is also the field of records management, now predominantly, digital records management, which shares the many goals of the fields of ISs and EIS in terms of supporting enterprise operations and advancements. The DRM field recognized rather early in its battle to combat digital records challenges that the need to work closely with the ICT profession for devising information system functional requirements and for developing long term preservation strategies for valuable digital records. It is still rare, however, to spot discussions regarding the relationships among the fields in the ICT literature today. It is the intention of this communication piece to introduce one of the major developments of the international DRM field, i.e., the Chain of Preservation model, in particular the types of records systems that it encompasses, to the ISs and EIS professions, for the purpose of invoking further discussions and future collaborations.
