SaaS, Virtualization, Open Source Document Management

I am starting this forum to get a dialog going around the coming together of Software-as-a-Service, Virtualization and Open Source and how they apply to Document Management Systems. I will also discuss what size of businesses and what industry segments can most benefit from this emerging trend.

My company LinearCube is a provider of Open Source Software-as-a-Service based Document Management System. I will share some of my experience as we go to market and learn what the customers are asking for.

Some of the areas that I will address in coming weeks are:

  • Factors affecting adoption of Hosted/SaaS Document Management System
  • Horizontal Document Management System vs. Industry specific solutions (we are currently going to the market with a Hosted Legal Document Management Solution)
  • Document management system as a platform
  • What add-on applications are most suited to go along with “out of the box” Document Management System
  • On Premise Document Management System vs. Hosted Document Management System – Benefits/Challenges
  • Difference between Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery and Backup
  • How can Document Management systems be thought of as Business Productivity Applications
  • What features of Document Management System apply to what Industry Verticals

So stay tuned as I go through my thoughts on these and other timely issues in this blog.
