Content Manager (Formerly  HPE Records Manager / HPE TRIM)

Content Manager is a governance based enterprise content management (ECM) system designed to meet the global needs of government, regulated industry and enterprises.

Unlock the benefits of managing content throughout its lifecycle. More organizations are now realizing the benefits of integrating electronic records management into their enterprise content management practices. This is because of its proven mechanisms for proactively capturing and organizing the documentary evidence that makes up the regular course of business—activities, transactions, internal and external communications, protective markings, and retention requirements. 

An information governance program built on strong records management principles can also significantly improve business efficiency and productivity, information security, and operational cost savings. The program proactively manages both business content and records throughout the content lifecycle, from the point of creation through to disposal.

In today’s business environment, compliant Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is a complex undertaking. Content Manager responds to this need to deliver integrated, proven content management and governance for your entire enterprise. Hewlett Packard Enterprise can help you manage both physical and electronic content within a single ECM solution.


  • Automation - Improve the efficiency of staff & systems. Automatic classification, folder creation, policy application and advanced disposal processing reduces errors and manual tasks.
  • Collaboration and Cloud - Integration with Microsoft Office 365, OneDrive and SharePoint enables the passive and compliant management of critical content and records without negatively impacting the collaborative or cloud experience.
  • Security - Extensive security and access controls improve privacy for managed content while simplifying the defensible disposal (according to policy) of content that has expired or has no residual value.
  • Retention Management - Pre-packaged policy for Government, Life Sciences and Financial Services across multiple jurisdictions lowers the cost and complexity of retention management. Further, the automatic application of policy & multi-jurisdictional retention management simplifies compliance with regulatory mandates such as privacy, freedom of information, FRCP or DoD5015.2.
  • Zero Footprint - Functionally rich, zero footprint web client reduces IT resources and cost to implement, while improving authorized real-time access to business content, contacts and workflows in the field across a range of devices.
  • Geographical Data - Geo-location functionality and search integration with Google Maps simplifies asset management by aligning content, contacts, geographical data and policy in one application.
