Documentum is version control software for documetation. It's an enterprise-level package that requires quite a bit of planning and setup, but is recognized as the leader in this type of thing. It's used a lot in the aircraft and pharmaceutical industries, where precise control and version is literally a matter of life and death. It's customized for each installation, and it manages workflow as well, so it may work differently from one place to another.

If you know how to use version control software like Clearcase, you're probably about 90 percent there.

Do a web search on Documentum and see if any of the consulting firms have info on Documentum. Once you see what they are selling, it's easy to figure out how it's used.

Subject: Documentum experience?

Hi all - I'm working on getting an interview for a trainer position, which requires training end users on the program 'Documentum.' I was wondering if anyone has any experience in this program, and if so, what can you tell me about it? Also, do you know where i may find out more about it? (i.e.
websites, etc.) It may be used for content management, I'm thinking. I'm relatively new to technical writing field, as this would probably be a good career opportunity for me. Thanks in advance.
