This white paper analyses the responses of a range of open source solutions to concrete problems, and created a methodological approach to assist you with the implementation of your project.

While open source provides excellent solutions to a number of needs, specific documentation savoir-faire remains, ahead of tools, the main challenge of EDM or ECM (Enterprise Content Management) projects.

This work attempts to draw together:

  • A general outline of the underlying document management notions, upon which EDM project methodology is based.
  • A description of the main functions required by this type of project and the issues that arise with these functions.
  • An inventory of the main open source content management solutions
  • A presentation of the best tools, an assessment of their strengths, limitations, and maturity.

Document management is designed to provide a secure, traceable, organised, collaborative mode of management for company documents.

In choosing an Open Source solution one benefits from a quality product, guided by the best solutions to real user needs, and this at minimal cost.

EDM and ECM solutions differ mainly in terms of the digital objects and functionsthat they deal with. EDM is limited to digital documents, often office documents, while ECM encompasses all of the company’s digital content, notably images, site content, and documents sent by company management systems.

Open Source arrived at maturity in this area in the mid-2000’s and now offers stable solutions, of a very high functional and technical standard and ever-better adapted to market needs.
