"Document management" covers a wide range of products. I work for
Documentum, a company that makes a high-end, full-featured, enterprise-wide
document management system. Of course, I use our product, but rather than
trying to sell it here I'll leave it to others to make their evaluations.
A decent guide to document management appears in the April 10, 1995 issue of
Computerworld, pp. 87 - 94. The article covers everything from basic DTP to
storage, routing, and retrieval at the individual, group, and enterprise
levels. Computerworld gives Documentum a score of 9.5 for library
capabilities and an average overall score of 8.0.
Our major competitors include Saros, Interleaf, and Odessa.
Looking forward to your summary.
