Stellent, Inc., a provider of content management solutions, has announced the launch of Stellent Universal Records Management, a new application built on a distributed architecture that enables companies to apply records and retention policies in a consistent, legally defensible way across the enterprise.
Stellent Universal Records Management allows organizations to define, manage, and execute records and retention management policies for all enterprise content from a single application. The system is a complete, Department of Defense (DoD) 5015.2- and 4-compliant records management application that performs both electronic and physical records management. In addition to managing the records customers choose to store in its built-in repository, Stellent Universal Records Management uses an agent architecture to enforce records management and retention policies and schedules in applications and repositories throughout an organization. This "in-place" functionality enables companies to leave content in its native location rather than moving it to a central repository for records and retention management; apply rules directly to content where it resides; and manage the disposition of all content, not merely the content explicitly declared as records. Agents also send information back to the Stellent server, enabling it to maintain an up-to-date catalog of all enterprise content. This server is designed to facilitate legal discovery activities and applies litigation holds to relevant content.
Through its agent architecture, Stellent Universal Records Management can apply records and retention schedules and litigation holds to content located in nearly any repository or application. Its agent application programming interfaces (APIs) are open and published. Stellent Universal Records Management gives organizations the ability to centrally create records and retention policies and apply them to all content throughout an enterprise. Stellent Universal Records Management provides a searchable catalog of content within an organization plus the means to place a hold on relevant content and, if necessary, move or copy it into the central repository. Additionally, all actions are logged and available for audits and reports. The Stellent Universal Records Management base application is priced at $100,000. Agents for in-place management range from $10,000 to $50,000.
