Document management,open source
OpenKM is a Free/Libre document management system that provides a web interface for managing arbitrary files. OpenKM includes a content repository, Lucene indexing, and jBPM workflow. The OpenKM system was developed using Java technology.
In 2005 two developers involved in open source technologies and expertise with some commercial document management solutions (Sharepoint, Documentum, Hummingbird, among others) like Excalibur search engine or Kofax OCR engine decided to start an open source project based on high level technologies to build a document management system that they decided to call OpenKM.
At the project’s outset, it received the help of Spanish government funds from the PROFIT project. At the end of 2006 the first OpenKM version was released.
OpenKM is a web-based document management application, so only a web browser is needed to use it. Currently only Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari are supported. The web interface is built using Google Web Toolkit, so the browser support depends on the toolkit.
