Doc

<p>ZDNet introduces Doc (The DocuMentor), sponsored by RICOH. Through his blog, Doc will educate you about Document Management. So who is Doc? Doc is something of an enigma. He was born to a Russian ballerina and a German electrical engineer who some believe was running covert operations for shadowy corporate interests. Doc grew up in various locations in the United States, although no one seems to know precisely where, least of all Doc. His early schooling was unremarkable except for the time he was caught trying to replace all the mimeograph machines with high-tech color copiers that had mysteriously disappeared from a shipment to Albania. At MIT, he made a name for himself by transforming a large printer into a robot that hunts and eats Roombas. Professionally, he reportedly has seen the insides of more brands, versions, and generations of printer and printer-related hardware than almost anyone. Some say his obsession with paper, printing, and mechanical movement was either started by, or evidenced by, a traumatic childhood episode when he crawled inside an old Xerox 2400 and tried to print himself.</p> <p>Anyway, Doc has hands on experience with stuff like printer maintenance and fleet management, but his mastery of document management leaves no stone unturned. Important issues like sustainability, security, and regulatory compliance are top of mind for Doc, as are other business technology needs like networking and IT services, making him a true blue IT renaissance man. </p>

Looking Into Electronic Document Management Systems

Simply put, an electronic document management system (EDMS) is a system that can replace paper files and documents in an office, and enable users to send electronic documents through the same steps a paper document or file would follow. EDMS systems are primarily used in the legal profession to increase efficiency and eliminate the costly inconsistencies that are common in a paper based process. For instance, if the firm has a new case form that is filled out for each client account and it must proceed from the attorney to a paralegal and then back to the attorney, then an EDMS must provide the same path.

Data Privacy: What Part of Your Network Is Vulnerable, and What Can You Do About It?

Doc thinks networked environments are both a boon and a burden to organizations. They greatly improve productivity and reduce cost by allowing customers, vendors, partners, employees, and other stakeholders to share and access information in real time. But increased access to sensitive information makes networks vulnerable to malicious activity and misuse. There have been numerous high-profile data security breaches and losses, prompting a rise in government regulations surrounding data privacy.
