Don't know specifically, but it ain't cheap. We also had to develop a workflow
system for approvals and end-user notifications.

Five months now. We're very pleased with its performance. Of course, they still
have to make it millenium bug-free, but they are working on that with their next
release.

Can be. Depends on how you set up your libraries. Saros DM has a number of
features we never use.

This database allows us to store any file type and view these
files with any browser we like. We've created search pages from
the web that allow us to use the document properties to query. The
properties themselves are stored in Sybase, so they can be used
with other databases to centralize information more effectively.

Hope this helps.
