Information Lifecycle Management (ILM)

Audit proof archiving with any storage system

Information-Lifecycle-Management for Alfresco

Audit proof archiving of records and documents is a basic and critical re­quire­ment for your corporate IT. Westernacher’s “Information Lifecycle Management” (ILM) module combined with Alfresco’s document management system fully supports you to meet auditing legal requirements.

Lifecycle Management enables you to define a document’s life cycle based on Alfresco policies. Documents are archived at the right time, in the right format (original + long-term rendition + metadata) and in the right place (your selected archiving system), in a highly automated process.
