All military branches offered way to take advantage of content lifecycle
The US Department of Defense’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Document Services unit is to use Open Text’s ECM Content Lifecycle Management software for agencies working for the DoD.
According to the company, the deal will provide all branches of the military to access content, including records and email documents. SharePoint is one of the formats included in the offering.
Open Text said that DLA Document Services automates document management in the Department of Defense. It actively functions as a ‘transformation agent’ to move the DoD toward online documents. DLA Document Services can then collaborate with the military to consolidate records and storage, to use content management and search capabilities, Open Text said.
To fulfill its ‘mission’, as they call it, DLA Document Services has enlisted the services of Open Text as a technology and implementation provider, it said, tapping into Open Text’s core ECM software.
“By offering Open Text’s CLM solutions, DoD customers have a cost effective solution without having to go through the traditional contracting process typically required for licensing these types of tools,” said Michael Smith, Vice President, Public Sector, Open Text. “Open Text’s CLM tools will help U.S. military customers easily manage their content throughout its entire lifecycle and ensure it is secure, meets DoD requirements, and reduces risk and storage requirements. These are all imperatives for this market.”
As a field activity of the Defense Logistics Agency, DLA Document Services manages over 180 facilities, primarily located on U.S. military bases worldwide in seven countries. The DLA provides a range of document management services ranging from offset printing, on-demand output, to online document services.
