The main focus of this e-book is to identify the interrelationships between document management and knowledge management with the aim of proving that in order to develop a corporate knowledge management system, the implementation of a document management System (DMS) is a prerequisite. For the presentation of our arguments, we would first define and explain some of the terminologies used in DMS
In recent times the volume of documents produced daily has increased exponentially. There is a demand for an efficient and secure method to manage the documents and make the information, records and knowledge entailed in them available anywhere at any time. This demand has initiated the development of new technologies with new approach to document management. The new document management technologies integrate state of the art software components into web-based electronic multi-functional systems. These Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS), which are generally called Document Management System (DMS), are being implemented in organizations to resolve business-critical document management problems as well as to provide a platform for the organization’s Knowledgebase.
