Inside enterprise content management
Some of the key components of an enterprise content management suite:
Only authorized personnel gain check-in or check-out privileges for individual
documents. Audit tools keep track of who revised documents and when. Additionally, such systems
can restrict who can publish content to Web sites or intranets.
Replace paper documents with electronic memos, reports, manuals, and other documents sent to Web sites, intranets or e-mail inboxes.
Automatically route new or revised documents to the appropriate people to keep projects on track during the editing, reviewing, approval and publishing stages.
Web conversion services.
With standard templates, noninformation technology people can create documents that are automatically converted to proper formats for Web publishing.
Virtual workgroups provide an online work space where people from different departments
can meet to complete projects.
