DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT

Document Handling

Document management, records management, enterprise content management, document control, information management etc. There are many related terms, some more well-defined than others. The most common understanding of a document is in the traditional sense in formats such as Word, PDF, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. However, sometimes a broader terminology is applied to include casefiles, pictures or even saved tweets as documents. Therefore, when talking documents, start by agreeing on a common definition across filetypes as well as content.
