Electronic board of bank and EDMS: experience of integration

1 year, 7 months ago

Let's take the standard corporate customer, let us assume, bank. In each bank there are governing bodies – board of directors and board which requirements for work with documents can hardly be satisfied by means of normal EDMS. And it is not necessary to confuse a problem of ensuring activity of joint bodies to a so-called "ARMOM Rukovoditelya" which is in some EDMS. The head, even if highest rank, in principle the same participant of business process, as well as any other employee, he approves too and approves documents. Only owing to the employment and the high status, heads are more exacting to convenience of work with system and are, as a rule, very mobile. To put it briefly, heads need the limited subset of the EDMS functions packed into the beautiful and convenient interface on the tablet, but it is after all EDMS, but not some other system.
And when we speak about automation of joint bodies, type of board of directors and board, to the forefront there is a collective work and support of processes of corporate management for what specialized systems are used. EDMS, even with "the Head's automated workplace", does not cover this complex of tasks.

ACS: from grief to pleasure. History of the Russian automation

1 year, 7 months ago
Modern developers of systems of automation have rich opportunities: these are numerous programming languages, libraries, huge repositories of the open code, at last, any equipment rather available practically necessary for development and testing. In the 50th years when in the USSR the idea of creation of an ACS and the beginning actively arose to develop cybernetics, all these resources were not enough. Scientists of that time were not only dry pragmatists, but also dreamers — they wanted positive changes of the socioeconomic relations which the ACS was urged to provide. However all further history of creation of an automated control system within command economy and infinite bureaucracy is not so optimistical. But about everything one after another.

Russian platinum: EDMS works even where bears go

1 year, 9 months ago
Platinum is extracted the same as gold – wash sand, collect precious particles, then melted. Regular works on extraction of platinum on the field Kondyor in Khabarovsk Krai were begun by gold prospectors of artel "Cupid" in 1984. As it appeared, platinum deposits are huge here, nuggets weighing from one and a half to three and a half kilograms became the certificate to what. In 2007 the Russian Platinum holding where the artel "Cupid" and some other the enterprises entered was formed.

And when there is a holding, inevitably there is also a need for document flow automation because business processes become complicated, their participants are separated by thousands of kilometers and not that with paper, even with e-mail and the tables Excel for document registration it becomes impossible to process all flow. Generally, the Russian Platinum group of companies decided to implement EDMS TEZIS.

Management of knowledge with KCS

1 year, 9 months ago
The part of my publications on Habré has been connected with subject research on management of knowledge. Then collected information with the purpose to find out the current development of the industry, to collect experience of users of Habr and to gather material for publications. Poll has been published, results are collected and small conclusions are drawn. By the way, poll is still open and someone sometimes even fills in the questionnaire.

In detail I have ceased to deal with issue of management of knowledge, but for all this time received responses under the published articles. It means that the subject has not died away, and 4 years later I would like to add to information field of RuNet of additional materials.

I plan small cycle of articles about KCS — Knowledge Centered Support.

On joint of ERP and ECM: as we automated material support process

1 year, 11 months ago
We continue series of the materials allowing to look in a new way at application of ECM or EDMS for automation of corporate business processes.

Happens so that life throws tasks in which you at all also were not going to be engaged when designed the system of document flow. It is possible, of course, is proud to tell "our system is for this purpose not intended" and it will be quite honest professional answer. And it is possible to think soberly how to use possibilities of ESM in a new way and to risk to overstep the bounds of the niche allocated for itself – both the customer to satisfy, and to acquire new experience.

If the ECM system has been designed with good stock of flexibility and adaptivity, the area of its application can be expanded fearlessly on many adjacent tasks which are beyond clerical document flow. To automate process of MTO – material support, having encroached thus on traditional glade of ERP? And why would be not present if the customer of that asks?

If not Liferay that that? GateIn?

1 year, 11 months ago
Not so long ago I have described new features which wait for users and developers in the new Liferay 7.0 version. Sometimes ask me — and why Liferay? For me the answer is simple — in that stack of technologies in which we work (Jave EE plus orientation to Open Source) I simply do not see alternatives.

Yes, we are engaged in implementation of portals on Liferay long ago, but I am not the blind fanatic and I try to come up sometimes from the world and to look around. And suddenly? Suddenly alternatives are? Let's consider one of them today — the GateIn portal — the coproduction JBoss and eXo.

Rake on which you would not like to step in the project

1 year, 12 months ago
Good afternoon, my name is Sergey and I am the head of the product direction in the Doksvizhn company. During operating time in the field of automation of electronic document management I happened to participate in tens of projects of implementation, and in different roles (from the engineer to the head of project office), from the different parties (the customer, the representative of the company implementer, vendor) and with different systems (Docsvision and Directum). I want to share the project experience with you.

Knowing process and having typed a lot of cones, I make in article several recommendations which will allow to approach the project of implementation of EDMS (as well as any IT system) prepared and more smoothly to implement it. My colleague already gave advice to the customer's IT specialists responsible for implementation. I will look at a question from a different angle and I will share a number of nuances which it should be taken into account the companies integrators. Especially, if the first project of implementation is necessary to you. I hope, article will be useful though it is all the same necessary to step on many "rake" sometimes independently, and ideal recipes in project practice do not exist.

We continue series of articles on "EDMS: way from simple to difficult".

Whether it is possible to automate by means of EDMS control of treasurer activity in the company at which divisions and the child organizations are at a great distance from each other? Watching it what EDMS at you. At once we will make a reservation: this is not about that to reduce all business processes to rearrangement of "pieces of paper" and to simulate work of all divisions on the principle of office. By no means!
The matter is that narrow and subject development approach of business applications, including EDMS, long ago in the past. Today any decent system possesses fair stock of flexibility and functionality therefore it can be used for solution by time of atypical tasks. And it has turned out in the vertically integrated Alyans Oil Company oil company where, in view of intensive document flow and need to organize effective inter-user communication from different regions of Russia and Kazakhstan, EDMS choice the THESIS as platform was more than successful.
