To us, document technology is recognizing that any document, be it a word processing document, a spreadsheet, even an email, need not be monolithic. Every document can be broken into constituent parts — paragraphs, sentences, even individual words — and then manipulated to create new documents using the power of a database back end and some very careful programming.
Once a document is broken out of the strictures of the desktop, the possibilities for control of content, collaboration, and distribution are endless. Large corporations, small teams, even individuals can use such a system to make information accessible from anywhere at any time.
We have used this approach to create a number of systems that allow production, control, and distribution of documents an information in a collaborative, highly secure, highly flexible environment.
