Compart - Document- and Output-Management

ECM and ADF: Why the Two Make Such a Good Team

Harald Grumser, COMPART


Output Management uses since many years the Gartner model of Automated Document Factory which was developed in the 90s and a few years ago it was extended by the document creation with ADF 2.0. The specialists coming from archiving have defined the Document Management by the model of Enterprise Content Management (developed by AIIM in the early 2000s). Both architectures complement each other and overlap in some areas. The union of both approaches has created a lot of discussion through to joining common departments.

The presentation explains both architectures and shows both the community as well as the powerfulness of both approaches. It will comment on the changes and challenges in the Output and Document Management World and tries to draw direct conclusions what will happen in the further future.
