Engineering Study

An Electronic Document Management (EDM) platform provides a foundation for the management of digital content in ways that extend well beyond departmental boundaries. An electronic document management project is an enterprise-wide initiative that will demand deep skills in project management, communications and information technology.

The first step in a successful EDM project is to clearly establish the motivation for the project, identify the target business processes, the associated data, and to budget properly for the project.

Gateway assigns highly qualified consultants to lead the interview and data collection activities that take place at the client’s site.  This activity requires an extensive background in the core business processes that are conducted by the client and a deep understanding of the document and data management issues that would typically be encountered.

Gateway also conducts an assessment of the current IT infrastructure for opportunities to leverage existing investments and gauge the effort involved in migrating content from any applications targeted for replacement.

Gateway’s Engineering Study Report takes a position on the topics outlined above complete with an executive summary, observations, conclusions and recommendations.  Gateway assists as required to   present the information to the client’s project review or steering committee.
