Page 1 of 1
AIIM International, the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) industry association this week introduced the first AIIM Recommended Practice (ARP) publication.
ARP 1-2001 provides a set of procedures and activities it recommends for the implementation of document management-based technologies. In addition, the publication provides information outlining specific recommended activities to be completed throughout the various project phases typically performed when implementing these technologies.
As a key technology within ECM, document management has become an all-encompassing term for the various inputting, processing, and storage of information including variations of document imaging, forms/recognition processing, content/document services, workflow and storage technologies. ARP 1-2001 provides detailed information on how these technologies work together, as well as information on the industry standards and guidelines associated with each.
"ARP 1-2001 provides users access to vendor-neutral information, further enabling them to gain the knowledge necessary to successfully select and implement the appropriate technologies to meet their business and technical goals," said Betsy Fanning, director of Standards for AIIM International. "And, as new standards and technologies are adopted, the AIIM Standards program will ensure that this document is updated on a frequent basis, so that it continues to be a resource as future industry technologies are developed."
