ARCHIVAL MANAGEMENT AND DOCUMENTATION
Document archiving refers to the process of placing documents in storage that need to be kept but are no longer in regular use. Archiving often refers to storing physical documents, but it can be used to refer to storing data as well. As more businesses use a paperless model, data archiving is a critical part of a documentation and archiving strategy. Rather than keeping paper documents, many businesses are scanning their old paper documents and then archiving them digitally.
