TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Some of you may remember my query to the list last year about document
management. My company never did come up with a system, and as we continue
to grow we're realizing we can't hold off much longer.
What do you think? In the archives I found a posting from Laura Storey that
she "abstained from integrating [her] docs into [SourceSafe] databases."
Laura, if you're still around, I'd be interested in your reasoning.
-----> Well, I don't have a recommendation, but my our Documentation
department is currently looking into Documentum as a solution. We
are scheduled to have a rep come and do a demo at the end of May.
I'll post our findings at that time if anyone's interested. :-)
I think they have a web site... www.documentum.com
