What they never told you at DRMS school...

By Melissa Osborne

As the Product Manager for the HP TRIM software, there are lots of things that I know about this software which I will be telling you about in future blogs. For those of you that aren’t aware, HP TRIM is our great Document & Records Management software.

For the next little while, I will be focusing on something that is dear to my heart…  implementing a document and records management system (DRMS). Before I became a Product Manager on the software side, I was at the coalface as the Project Manager deploying these systems into organizations just like yours.

There are things about DRMS implementations that are not like other projects, and each week I will impart another piece of hard gained practical knowledge to help you ensure a successful outcome.

The topics I will cover include:

  • When is a DRMS project not an IT project?

  • Who should own your DRMS project?

  • How do you justify the ROI?

  • What does the Business have to do with this?

  • Can you get user buy-in for your classification scheme?

  • Good people make a good team

  • Use every trick in the book! 

Most of this information you won’t get from the text books.  And at the very least, some of the topics I write about will get you thinking about how you could tackle these things in your implementation. Or if you’ve already implemented, then you’ll relate to what I’m writing about. If you want to send in your best learned lessons, I’d love to hear from you.  So until next week….Ciao.
