Document Management Systems

by jamlin423 In reply to Document Management Syste ...

I have surveyed Documentum, Vignette, OpenMarket and Interwoven. And I think Interwoven is the most flexible among them.

==Interwoven==
The good:
1. You get to manage all your documents/files (static webpages), application code (dynamic webpages) and data in your company at the same platform.
2. It has a very flexible workflow engine that you can customize in a variety of ways.
3. It can be integrated with a whole bunch of production site packages.

The bad:
1. Like all "infrastructural" products, you may have to spend some efforts implementing Interwoven. (But I think its flexibility makes this worthwhile.)

==Vignette==
The good:
1. Its a typical end-to-end solution, they've got every "function" you need. (But you must adapt their way of doing it.)

The bad:
1. It's a DB-based product that you may want to consider the transference cost when you decide to drop it.

==Documentun==
The good:
1. A very good document management product.

The bad:
1. Just manage documents.

==OpenMarket==
Just sucx

Hi

It's not on your list, but you might want to have a look at the offering from Optimus Solutions called Media Manager.

I use it and find it works really well and not difficult to implement. Document storage is flexible but we use an an FTP store. Indexing and profile information is in an Oracle database, making it very scalable. The client is java based.

If you have lots of money to spend, you could also consider Microsoft's SharePoint. Expensive but atfirst look it appears to be a straightforward setup and very flexible.
