A comprehensive and very approachable guide to EDRMS, from first principles through to detailed implementation.

Covers compliance and legislation to help avoid common legal pitfalls, and integration of EDRMS into existing organisational workflows (email management, post/mail and, crucially, ways to deal with a mountain of historic paper documents).

The comprehensive case studies make this a practical and applicable text, rather than simply an academic one.

Disappointed to say the least. The book presents the whole area of implementation as a series of short standalone definitions of what EDR / EDMS is in very small paragraphs. A clear lack of depth and any sort of threading between the different parts.

The table of contents looks promising at first, but going through the individual pages, the content is too generic and high level, even for novices and won't give you any better clues on how to execute an implementation plan.

I echo one other comment from the review, this book doesn't provide any sort of experience or insights of someone who has implemented EDR/EDMS in the past.

With regards to the project methodology and change management sections, the book presents the generic theoretical definitions of what they are. Very poor I'm afraid if you are expecting to find best practices and examples of project / programme charters on the actual implementation.

If, however, you do know something about Document Management systems and you are looking to augment your knowledge don't buy this book. Contains a lot of peripheral information about how to make a business case or what a project is and how to run one but no where near enough detailed information about how to create a File Plan. This is a lesson in how to fill two covers not in how to create a Document Management System.

In an computer age, it's important to understand EDRMS. This book explains it to you in a way that is easy to understand. A great read, I would recommend this to anyone, especially people who run a business with important data. Top book!

The book has a lot of information but it is obvious the author had not been involved in a real life implementation of an EDRM. Good for a begineer, useless for a specialist.
