electronic document management (EDM)

Electronic Document

Management (EDM) is about the management of completely different documents of a company: orders, invoices, correspondence, personnel data, audio and video recordings and much more. EDM systems can capture, edit, store and process a wide variety of documents - paper documents with text, photos, images and other media such as audio and video. EDM systems consist of several databases in which a wide variety of documents are stored. They include scanners, printers and servers

thatmanage the various databases, and storage units consisting of redundant disk arrays

. To optimize document storage, EDM systems work with metadata.

Each document is uniquely identifiable by the metadata and shortens the document search in the databases. The metadata can be arranged topic-related or chronologically and can be found by keywords or via associative strategies.
