Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) is an enterprise-wide solution supporting GSA/FAS goals for a paperless office space. The system is a common service for document collaboration and content management tool for managing electronic content stored in the Documentum repository.
The ECMS system provides the ability to manage electronic content through the entire life cycle of a document – creation, distribution, utilization, retention, and disposition. The implementation is envisioned to provide flexible imaging and data capture, supporting multiple document capture approaches from in-house scanning to outsourced conversion and imports. The service secures enterprise-wide storage and retrieval of documents, allowing the system of record or the client business process instances to access the content with confidence. Content may be checked-in/ checked-out based on the permissions defined in the Access Control Lists for the logged-in user.
