Implementing DMS on Hadoop - HDMS
A Document Management System (DMS) focuses on managing unstructured data or content using structured data. To implement DMS, a number of licensed as well as open source products are available in the market. With the DMS requirements of today's businesses, more than one product is needed leading to fragmented landscape, vendor locking, high TCO, etc. Some products offer document management and media management as separate products or add-on with additional licenses. On the other hand, some products cannot scale to huge volume without adding additional appropriate hardware, which add ups to TCO cost. The new thought process is to build DMS solution on a generic platform which can store petabytes of data of any type and keeping TCO lower. This paper conceptually examines the feasibility of implementing DMS on Hadoop (HDMS).
