In a previous blog we talked about the requirement for many organisations to keep and store archived paper records, often for many years.
But like many physical materials, paper is organic and likely to deteriorate over time so
The introduction of internet technology was meant to also be the dawn of a new age, the paperless society.
We were told this would be good for the environment because we would no longer need to cut down huge swathes of forest every year. We would no longer need massive amounts of storage space and archive material. But it hasn’t turned out to be quite like that, though, and how realistic is it?
