Course No. CWRM 206 - Document Management Software and Systems
Instructor - John T. Phillips
Fee: $935 CEUs: 1.44 for 2 Days of class
(8:30am-5:00pm Day 1, and 8:30am-4:00pm Day 2)
This course will be offered at George Washington University (2020 K Street)
in Washington DC on January 14-15, 2003 as a part of the GWSolutions -
Center for Professional Development, Records and Information Management
The course presents a broad understanding of why and how many companies are
deciding to manage business documents in electronic format, by using
Electronic Document Management Software and Systems (EDMS). Attendees will
learn why using e-document based systems to manage enterprise documents is
often more efficient than adhering to paper-based business processes. A
variety of computer systems technologies will be illustrated that can
improve an organization's effectiveness in protecting actively used
e-documents and in preserving e-records for long-term viability. The
functional differences between content management systems, document imaging
systems, groupware, extranets, intranets and workflow software will be
profiled in a manner understandable to both technical and non-technical
individuals. The issues concerning integration of these systems with desktop
computer software, e-mail systems, and electronic record-keeping software
will also be discussed. In addition, specific information on selected
representative e-document related software and hardware products will be
provided, such as Open Text's Livelink, Hummingbird DM, and IBM's Content
Manager. By participating in this course, individuals can gain the knowledge
required to assist in defining EDMS functional requirements and in
implementing an EDMS system.
