While DRM has now matured to be a recognized and established domain it is currently struggling with interoperability issues mainly on a sector basis (entertainment and media, mobile, enterprise). In the enterprise sector, DRM was fueled by corporate scandals leading to compliance issues mandated by emerging regulatory frameworks. In this context, we make the case for the necessity of raising the debate at the policy management level (DPM) as the strategic dimension of DRM. We further argue that in doing so, enterprise information systems will have to factor in persistent protection, governed usage and managed content which represents a major challenge in this field for the coming years. A general framework is proposed in this direction to capture corporate digital policy management.
