Shouldn’t our content management solutions support these new approaches to creating and managing content?

The simple answer is a resounding..

word YES

Today, we are capturing content in web forms, mobile applications and also through documents. This means the old way of managing content - through storage of files and associated metadata doesn’t work. Today, document management is about the management of all information or knowledge, be it structured, unstructured or semi-structured.

Regardless of what format your files come in you still need to collaborate on them, so your document management solution needs to have capabilities to support collaboration, like check-in and check-out, discussions, annotations and more. You also still need workflow to ensure the activities that create/require your documents are happening in the right order, by the right people.

The thing to remember though is that every organization manages its documents differently. That means you need to have a document management platform that enables you to customize your document management solution the way your business processes work.

That is exactly what the Nuxeo Platform helps you do - build a document management solution custom to your organization’s needs. One way we help you do that quickly is through the use of Nuxeo Studio, our web-based tool for configuring/customizing the Nuxeo Platform. Whether you are building a solution to manage invoices, statements, or cases, the Nuxeo Platform offers a complete solution to both manage and collaborate on your content.
