Document Management System (DMS)

Document management systems (DMS) assist with the management, creation, workflow, and storage of documents within different departments. A DMS stores documents in a database and associates important information about the documents, to the documents (known as metadata). Most systems provide workflow engines to design and support document creation, publication, and usage. DMS solutions are often used by insurance and health care industries, government bodies, or other organizations processing high volumes of documents.

The Necessity of Data Warehousing


An explanation of the origins of data warehousing and why it is a crucial technology that allows businesses to gain competitive advantage. Issues regarding technology selection and access to historical 'legacy' data are also discussed.

Managing metadata makes it possible to understand relationships between data elements and assists in the mapping of source to target fields.

Understanding SOA, Web Services, BPM, BPEL, and More Part One: SOA, Web Services, and BPM


In the larger schema of things, SOA would espouse general, more abstract concepts of software reusability and encapsulation within certain boundaries (as to then provide access to that software via defined interfaces), Web services would then make these SOA concepts vendor-independent due to their use of generally accepted standards, while BPM and BPEL would be some of the engines making the whole system work.

Whichever way referred to, it enables any technical complexity to be transparent and technology-friendly for non-IT savvy business users, and enables enterprises to achieve that long-coveted, but so far elusive goal of bridging the proverbial divide between business and IT worlds within an organization.

Now Just Where Did I Put My Search Engine?


Barraged with terms like "structured and unstructured data," "enterprise search," "federated query," and "business intelligence and analytics," corporate decision makers are awash in ambiguous and overlapping meanings. Making the distinction between metadata and data may reduce the confusion.

SAP HANA-One Technology to Watch in 2012 (and Beyond)


Did you know that SAP HANA is much more than a high-speed analytic appliance? TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reveals how HANA is a universal database that will enable companies to analyze large volumes of operational and transactional information in real time, from virtually any data source, and that will eventually deliver an entirely new class of applications that will change the way people think, work, plan, and operate.

Best Practices for a Data Warehouse on Oracle Database 11g


Companies are recognizing the value of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) that provides a single 360-degree view of the business. But to ensure that your EDW performs and scales well, you need to get three things right: the hardware configuration, the data model, and the data loading process. Learn how designing these three things correctly can help you scale your EDW without constantly tuning or tweaking the system.

metadata schema  A synopsis is statistical metadata for that partition and the columns in the partition. Each synopsis is stored in the SYSAUX tablespace and takes approximately 10KB. Global statistics are generated by aggregating the synopses from each partition, thus eliminating the need for the full table scan (see Figure 26) . When a new partition is added to the table you only need to gather statistics for the new partition. The global statistics will be automatically updated by aggregating the new partition Read More
