What are records generated via mobile devices and how do we capture them? We live in a world of mobility, instant communication and instant reaction. However, many still use outdated communication technologies due to the fact that change is hard and capturing records from mobile technologies is not always easy. For example, if you use carrier SMS, capturing a record of communications is nearly impossible. Is there a way to introduce modern mobile technologies while maintaining the stringent recordkeeping requirements? We will examine the different kinds of mobile communication technologies, their recordkeeping capabilities, and set rules for evaluation and recordkeeping in the fast-changing mobile world.
