Georgia System Operations Corporation Achieves Regulatory Compliance with OpenText and Microsoft®

OpenText Application Governance & Archiving for Microsoft SharePoint® provides a central records management and archival system for managing the complete lifecycle of content

The OpenText system provides the tracking information that we need for the CIP standards. And it’s provided more tools than we had access to before, such as the ability to see previous versions if we need to. We are now able to meet the compliance requirements for our documents.

— Kellie Elford, System Analyst at Georgia System Operations Corporation

Challenge

Georgia System Operations Corporation needed a central repository to store and manage documents in order to meet the NERC CIP requirements. Other challenges included no audit trail and document version control throughout document and records lifecycles, and slow collaboration among managers on document creation and review.

Value

  • Secured content that is centrally managed throughout its lifecycle;
  • Easy access to information resulting in improved efficiencies;
  • Consistency of information through document version control;
  • Improved compliance with government regulations;
  • Improved records management of all vital documents
