FileNet Corporation unveiled a comprehensive ECM compliance management framework. Leveraging the FileNet P8 platform, FileNet’s Compliance Framework is intended to manage three elements of compliance. First, it helps companies put in place processes to react to changing regulations. Secondly, it provides organizations with the ability to manage content. Finally, the framework can connect with various legacy systems found throughout the enterprise. The FileNet Compliance Framework helps to provide consistency across the organization and better control in the management of records and business processes by tracking real-time information on who’s done what, where, and across which departments. This helps validate the process of how information was gathered for internal auditors and external regulators, and allows them to see how and why decisions were made. The FileNet Compliance Framework provides an event-driven architecture, which can identify and initiate responses to material events, such as a change in a financial report. FileNet’s Compliance Framework is scheduled for availability during the second quarter of 2004.
