Introduction to Electronic Document Management Systems
"Introduction to Electronic Document Management Systems" provides an overview of the technology of electronic document management using modern electronic image processing. It will prove to be a key source of information for management and technical staff of organizations considering a transformation from traditional micrographics-based document storage and retrieval systems to new electronic document capture systems. It should also be useful for those organizations considering improving productivity through electronic management of large volumes of data records. The text explores the computer equipment and techniques used for managing document information in systems based on converting document material into images to be stored, manipulated, and displayed. The various types of hardware used are described, and detailed descriptions of some of the specialized components such as image scanners and optical disk "jukeboxes" are included. By emphasizing the relationship between system requirements and system performance, this beautifully illustrated book will help readers make informed decisions on specifications required for establishing an electronic imaging system.
