The 2005 Outlook
And for the year ahead, the prediction is--document management, document management, and more document management.
Sure, there are other topics. But for 2005, if it's not the year of document management, it will be a year of intense and serious tire kicking. Maybe accounting professionals should be spending more time worrying about security. But they probably won't.
Of course, it's not just about going paperless. In fact, among the issues that are spurring the adoption of document management system, reducing paper can be among the least important.
What we really need to talk about is remote access and collaboration, because these trends are driving the sales of document management software and the renewed interest in Internet-based applications.
