it doesn't fit neatly into set categories. Documentum's database--in techie
terms, an object-oriented layer on top of a relational database--organizes
and automatically updates the 'unstructured' information in a company's
electronic documents, be they product diagrams, sales proposals, contracts,
operating procedures, photos, design specifications, or regulatory filings."
