7 of the Best Free Linux Document Management Systems

7 of the Best Free Linux Document Management Systems

Document Management is an information technology that has taken over from legacy systems of manual or server based file sharing, the electronic filing cabinet, to control policies and procedures. It is one of the functions provided by Enterprise Content Management.

A document management system enables individuals and businesses to manage documents, making it easy to locate a previous document version. This is important from a record control perspective, and to ensure that compliance standards are met within a user-friendly environment.

The main benefit offered by a document management system is that it gives individuals and businesses the tools to store and index many different types of documents and electronic files. Information and knowledge within the organisation can be accessed as appropriate, leading to an increase in productivity. Any kind of binary data can be stored in the document system. Other uses of this type of system include document workflow, records management, image management, disaster recovery, backup, and access control.

Linux offers an impressive range of open source document management systems of varying complexities, to help manage paper files electronically, enabling users to find data without any fuss or bother. At the same time these systems ensure that only authorised users have access to the relevant documents, can add meta-data to documents for searching, and provide version control.

To provide an insight into the quality of software available for Linux, we have compiled a list of 7 powerful document management systems. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for anyone who needs to control records and documents. We give our highest recommendation to Alfresco and OpenKM.

Now, let's explore the 7 document management systems. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
