TSG recently worked with a client evaluating EMC’s Retention Policy Services (RPS) product. For those unfamiliar with RPS, RPS is used for automating content retention and disposition, while also allowing for holds that prevent disposition. Additional information can be found on the EMC website here: http://www.emc.com/products/detail/software2/retention-policy-services.htm
The client liked many of the features of the product and its user interface (which is very similar to Webtop). One of the appealing features is that RPS allows a clear separation of duties between roles of users along with multiple tools for managing retention with the WDK-based Retention Policy Services Administrator (RPSA). In this case, the end users are never aware that RPS is being used unless they try to delete a document that has a retention policy applied. For this client, a major concern focused on the RPS performance overhead of applying retention policies and mark ups to a multi-million document repository.
