Content is king for HPE

TRIM 9.0 has arrived a with a bang, and a new name! HPE Content Manager is the official moniker for the newest version of the venerable record-keeping software. HPE is emphasising the governance smarts of the new enterprise content management (ECM) platform which builds on a base that has delivered more than 1800 customer accounts and 1.5 million users across the globe (see IDM’s interview with David Gould, HPE’s WW Director, Software, Information Governance Solutions HERE).

Content. Content. Content! The term is sprinkled liberally throughout HPE’s launch announcement, which announces that it moves beyond ECM’s traditional focus on data capture and collaboration, managing paper records and retention.

New features of V 9.0 include enhancements to enterprise search and a geo-location function which integrates with Google Maps to allow users to find all content associated with a location – aimed particularly at mobile workers managing physical assets.

The TRIM/RM Web client has been given a makeover to support a much wider range of functions on a range of mobile devices.

Other new additions include:

  • Legally defensible lifecycle management – Supports legally-based retention and disposal for specific industry verticals including Government, Life Sciences and Financial Services across multiple jurisdictions.
  • Enhanced user automation – Simplifies records capture and management with auto-records declaration and classification with linked retention policy.
  • Tagging and capture of Gmail messages – Allows users to apply custom tags to Gmail messages with HPE Content Manager’s EmailLink to simplify their capture and management.
  • Passive manage-in-place for SharePoint, OneDrive for business and O365 – apply management rules to automate the passive capture and management of valuable content and records (according to policy and regulations) without negatively impacting the user experience.
