Our fourth building block in the Smart Content Framework™ is Policy. This building block includes the ability to identify records, privacy information, and intellectual assets and fully automate the process transparently, without user involvement, to handle the appropriate disposition of the content. This includes defining policies that can discover where the content resides, cleanse the content through organizationally defined concepts and descriptors, identify the relationships within the content and then enforce the policies as automatically as possible, without end user involvement.
