City council drives forward with e-government targets
Birmingham City Council has implemented EMC Documentum's Enterprise Content Management platform to manage documents for planning applications and construction and refurbishment projects.
The council is using the ECM platform as part of its drive to meet local e-government targets. During the roll-out, which began in December 2004, the council will scan in, store and index paper documents into PDF format. Later it plans to add voice files, photographic files, video recordings and AutoCAD images.
