February 25, 2008 – CA Records Manager is the first Records Management Application to be certified by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) against version 3 of the U.S. DoD 5015.2 standard, which provides for greater data security and integrity.


CA was among the first to be invited to certify against the new, more stringent standard. CA is also the first to achieve RMA-to-RMA transfer and interoperability certification, which sets standards for data import and export.


The U.S. DoD 5015.2 standard is used worldwide as the de-facto standard for comprehensive records management by both private and public organizations. Version 3 requires the ability to create alerts and notifications regarding changes in any metadata fields and restrict metadata access based on the contents of fields in the records repository. It also requires data integrity checking, comparing the expected and actual content in a repository through on-demand or scheduled integrity checks.


CA was an early adopter of both the original DoD standard offered through the Joint Interoperability Test Command in 1997, and version 2 in 2002.
