  11. 11. Moreq2 Compliance: The Test Framework <ul><li>ECM systems compliance will be tested </li></ul><ul><li>Will allow users to procure Moreq2 software </li></ul><ul><li>Test Framework developed by the German company Imbus AG </li></ul><ul><li>The Moreq2 certificate of compliance will be recognised all over Europe </li></ul><ul><li>Compliance to Chapter Zero will not be tested (not yet!) </li></ul>
  12. 12. Moreq2 Compliance: The Test Framework
  13. 13. Moreq2 Compliance: The Test Framework <ul><li>Who will use testing? </li></ul><ul><li>Users: </li></ul><ul><li>as a basis to prepare an invitation to tender </li></ul><ul><li>preparing acceptance testing for an existing ECM </li></ul><ul><li>academic institutions: as a teaching resource </li></ul><ul><li>ECM suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>to create ECM systems Moreq2 compliant </li></ul><ul><li>to test their product for Moreq2 compliance </li></ul>
  14. 14. What will testing bring for ECM suppliers? <ul><li>A Moreq2 certified ECM supplier will be: </li></ul><ul><li>trusted by Users as the certification will act as mark of quality and capability </li></ul><ul><li>able to sell all over Europe, as records management requirements are standardised </li></ul><ul><li>Consequently, </li></ul><ul><li>The ECM market will consolidate </li></ul>
  15. 15. Chapter Zero: the challenge <ul><li>Moreq2 standard should apply to all European countries </li></ul><ul><li>But European countries have different: </li></ul><ul><li>understanding of records management and archival </li></ul><ul><li>legislation on records management and archival </li></ul><ul><li>levels of implementation of information technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Chapter zero of each country may become critical for the wider acceptance of Moreq2 </li></ul>
  16. 16. Chapter zero: the challenge <ul><li>Document have two states: active and inactive </li></ul><ul><li>No distinction between records and documents </li></ul><ul><li>Active records created and managed by users, usually administrative staff </li></ul><ul><li>Document management rules dictated by administrative needs </li></ul><ul><li>Retention schedules may or not exist </li></ul><ul><li>Inactive documents sent to National Archives </li></ul><ul><li>No records management function, only an archival one </li></ul><ul><li>Most European countries use this model </li></ul>
  17. 17. Chapter Zero: the challenge <ul><li>The Lifecycle which is used by Moreq2: </li></ul><ul><li>Is Based on birth to death lifecycle </li></ul><ul><li>Record lifecycle events: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>creation, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>maintenance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>disposal (destruction or archival) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Time is linear and sequential </li></ul><ul><li>Defines differences between document and record </li></ul><ul><li>Introduce the records management function </li></ul><ul><li>Introduces retention concept </li></ul><ul><li>Archival take place at the end of lifecycle </li></ul>
  18. 18. The lifecycle of a record
  19. 19. Chapter Zero: the challenge <ul><li>Implementation of Moreq2 implies a tacit acceptance of the lifecycle model. Many European countries will have to: </li></ul><ul><li>switch from the administrative model to the lifecycle model </li></ul><ul><li>develop a chapter zero for Moreq2 compliance with their legislation </li></ul><ul><li>bring new legislation to become aligned to Moreq2 </li></ul><ul><li>change legislation in some cases, to avoid clashing with Moreq2 </li></ul><ul><li>introduce a new terminology, key concepts and new ways of working </li></ul>
  20. 20. Chapter zero: the challenge <ul><li>To conclude: </li></ul><ul><li>ECM suppliers will need to comply with Moreq2 but also with local legislation expressed in each European country Chapter Zero </li></ul><ul><li>Users will make the most of Moreq2 as a generic specification for procuring an ECM. </li></ul><ul><li>Users will need to add extra requirements in terms of other functions, performances, user roles, security, etc that are not specified in Moreq2 </li></ul>
