the international forum for document management applications, document
systems and document computing

Managing documents and the information they contain is the most important
information management challenge facing businesses today.

New products and technologies are reshaping the information technology
industry as publishing, document management, workflow, imaging, database,
retrieval, and computer system suppliers all focus on the problem of
managing document information with the same flexibility and control we
demand of corporate database applications.

Document system technology has begun to have a profound impact on the way
businesses operate in both local and competitive global environments, and
will drive corporate information management strategies in the 90s.  This
is why document management is now widely recognized as the most critical
client/server application for businesses to focus on.

Documation is the annual event where the future direction of document
management technology will be decided by corporate users and technology
suppliers.  At Documation you will see and hear what you need to know
about document management applications.

Help define the future of the document computing industry -- join us at
Documation '94!

Document, Data & Image Management Sessions
Track Chair: Matthew Shanahan, Manager, Andersen Consulting

Document and image management have not only become high profile
technologies, they are quickly becoming integral to organizations'
information infrastructures.  These technologies can easily frustrate or
derail a project if they are deployed incorrectly or for the wrong
reasons.The document management track will present sessions to help you
plan successful deployment and alignment of document and image
management systems within your information infrastructure.  These
sessions address the following questions: What are the tools that
comprise document management? How can they be used to reengineer
my business processes?, and What is the role of workflow?

Understanding the state of the market is key to successfully implementing
a project in the near term, but understanding current challenges and
industry directions allow strategic technology decisions to be made.  It
is with this in mind that the document management track will investigate
issues such as the role of object management and how to manage documents
in conjunction with external data stores.  The sessions that deal with
these issues are intended to provide you with insight and inputinto
industry technology directions.

Tools of the Trade: What are the tools that comprise document
Chair: Claude Finn, Vice President of Information Technologies,
Datalogics Division of Frame Technology Corporation.

Speakers: Brian Cassidy, Vice President, Saros Corporation
John Newton, Chief Architect, DOCUMENTUM, Inc., David Ruiz, Director,
Product Marketing, ViewStar Corporation

Tools of the Trade will be a panel session that provides attendees with
an inventory of tools and utilities, comprising a document management
system.  Rather that providing a top down definition of document
management, the panelists of this session will define the tools and
utilities that they feel are required within a document management
system. Along with describing the tools, panelists will define the
purpose of the tools and the motivations for incorporation the tools
within a given system.Examples of these tools and utilities include
version management,document access auditor, tool launchers, converters
and archival mechanisms.

Business Process Reengineering:  How does document management
change my business?
Chair: Matt Shanahan, Manager, Andersen Consulting

Speakers: Scott Wilson, Partner, Deloitte and Touche, Michael Devereol,
Partner, Deloitte and Touche, Bill Braasch, President, Database
Architects, Inc.

The session will present three aspects of business process reengineering
as it pertains to document management.  The first presentation will cover
a survey of document management implementations.  The second
presentation will develop a profile of process improvement opportunities
within an organization and a set of metrics for verifying the process
improvements. The third presentation will describe value-driven
reengineering as a part of a document management systems implementation.
The goal of this session is to develop an understanding of the role of
document management within the organization, the metrics for managing
success and methods for achieving successful business integration.

Case Studies: Best of Breed Integration, Image and Document
Integration, Project Life Cycle
Chair: Catherine Leloup, Director, GEIE Gavel (France)

Speakers: Paula Angerstein, Director, Product Development, Texcel (UK)
Michael Polelle, Manager, Andersen Consulting, Helmut Faasch,
Information Systems Engineering, Lufthansa German Airlines (Germany),
Jean Louis Henriot, LASCOM (France), Gareth Lloyd, Westrn Provident

This session will present a series of case studies about document
management implementations.  The goal of this session is to deliver
practical considerations to attendees as the result of document
management projects that have been implemented within the last year.
The first case study will present a "best-of-breed" integration in which
disparate authoring, document management and viewing tools were
integrated into a seamless authoring and retrieval platform. The second
case study will present a systems implementation that integrated image
and document management.  The third case study will present the life
cycle of a document management project examining the development
process from initial design to application roll-out.

Workflow and Document Management: Competing or Complementary
Chair: Ronni Marshak, Editor & Chief, Workgroup Computing Report

Speakers: Daniel Cheifetz, President, Odesta, Dave Seaman, President,
InfoDesign, Frank Deven, Aldus

Workflow is an important aspect of any document system.  Workflow is
the enabler that allows the processes associated with a document to be
managed.  This session answers the questions: How does workflow
integrate with document management? and are workflow and document
management competing technologies?  As a panel session, the goal will
be to develop a positioning of workflow within a document system.  The
session will provide a description of the role of workflow within a
document system and the types of workflow a document system will
encompass, e.g. ad-hoc, process-based and project-based.  As a follow
up, the session panelists will define the requirements of a workflow
monitor.  The panelists will additionally discuss the ability to
integrate a workflow product with a document management product.

Documents as Objects: Is It Necessary?
Chair: Larry Bohn, Senior Vice President, Business Development,
Interleaf, Inc.

Speakers: Tom Atwood, Chairman, Object Design
Others to be announced

Document management systems are increasingly using object-based
technologies to model and encapsulate documents. Is an object oriented
technology ultimately required to manage documents? Is it relational
technology that is required?, or is it both?  The goal of this session is
to help managers make decision on technology directions for
methodologies, development tools and databases. This session will
examine the object issue by examining the factors influencing the object
decision. Factors include data type support in relational databases,
inheritance of document attributes and behavior (reuse), techniques for
object encapsulation (e.g. SGML), techniques for encapsulating behavior
(e.g. RPC), version control and performance.

Managing Collections: Managing Large Numbers of Documents and
Multiple External Databases
Chair: Michael Rogers, Director, Information Technology Products,
SunSoft Inc.

Speakers to be announced

Document management systems not only manage a single instance of a
document but must in many cases manage collections of documents and
relationships to multiple external data stores.  This session will
investigate the techniques required to manage collections and
relationships. The synchronization, transaction control and interchange.
The goal of this session is to provide attendees with a background for
making technology decisions concerning document management of thousands
of documents and collections of documents that are tightly integrated to
external systems.

Wednesday, February 23, General Session

Vertical Industry Senior Executive Forum
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Chair: Frank Gilbane

Large vertical industries face similar document management problems,
yet use different terminology and sometimes choose different kinds of
solutions. In this session we will examine what document management
problems some of these industries have in common, and where they
differ. You will hear from leading executives in four vertical industries
talk about the important document management challenges they face, and
what they require from suppliers and integrators to meet them.

Chair: Jack Gold, The Meta Group

This track includes corporate publishing application case studies and
covers technical issues in the creation component of document systems.
How can SGML provide for interoperability between authoring and
document management systems? How do you decide which kind of authoring
system you need to meet your company's information management
requirements? Which new technologies for authoring systems are ready for
prime time? What are the authoring issues you need to be aware of when
creating information for electronic delivery? What technologies are being
developed to "image  enable" horizontal applications? What is the
state-of-the-art in scanning and recognition software?

Interoperability Success Stories & Challenges
Chair: Pamela Gennusa, Chief Marketing Officer, SGML Open

Speakers: Companies who have implemented SGML systems

In this session members of the SGML Open consortium will host
customers who will describe the challenges they face integrating
authoring, publishing and database systems in ways that allow them to
share and re-use structured information. SGML Open members will
describe how the work of the consortium addresses these challenges.

best suited to their type of authoring system. Conversion, database
integration, and demanding publishing applications all impose
requirements on authors. Is there a single best solution for you?

Advanced Authoring Technology for Corporate Publishing
Chair: Craig Cline, Associate Editor, Seybold Publications

Speakers: Doug Gorman, President, Information Mapping; Lisa Wellman,
Industry Manager, Publishing, Apple Computer; Lorraine Fox, Manager,
Interactive Services Strategy, Sun Microsystems Computer Company

Authoring systems that only allow for the creation of black and white
text and illustrations are no longer sufficient for many kinds of
technical documentation, training, and other corporate publishing
applications.Electronic delivery for desktops and PDAs as well as low
cost color printers are upping the ante. Hypertext, color, and multimedia
support are all being added to authoring systems. This session will
discuss the challenges these new features entail, and what makes sense to
implement today, and what strategies make sense for the future.

Image-Enabling Horizontal Applications
Chair: Keith Dawson, Contributing Editor, The Gilbane Report

Speakers: Kevin Strehlo, Executive Editor, Reviews and Testing,
InfoWorld; David Skok, President, Watermark; John Hoy, Marketing
Manager, Kodak Imagery

Document imaging is moving from a specialized application towards a
horizontal system service. Solutions are becoming available that enable a
broad range of applications on a network to make use of faxes, scanned
pages, and other kinds of images. Infrastructure is being developed that
will provide the document-management and storage-management services that
imaging requires for the same broad range of applications.
Panel members will provide perspectives on the development, present
reality,and future direction of image as a data type.

Technical Documentation Case Studies: Government Applications
Chair: Robin Tomlin, Senior Manager, Federal & Industrial Publishing
Solutions, Intergraph Corporation

Speakers: Horace Layton, Senior Project Manager, Computer Sciences
Corporation, Donald Rollert and James Byers, Government Printing
Office. Others to be announced.

This session provides an opportunity to hear from users involved in large
government technical document system applications. Standards issues for
forms, IETMs (Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals), and
CALS,integration, document distribution, and costs and benefits will all
be covered.

Compound Documents: Using Compound Document Architectures With Document
Management Systems
Chair: Richard Hay, Vice President, Marketing, DOCUMENTUM, Inc.

Speakers: Kurt Piersol, Software Architect, Apple Computer, Paul Grosso,
Vice President, Arbortext. Others to be announced.

Document authoring or capture tools provide mechanisms for
constructing large documents from graphics, tables, data from other
applications and multiple sub documents.  A document built from multiple
object types is typically called a compound document and while
authoring tools support a document's construction, the document
management tools assume that the compound document will be stored in
the directories of the computer's file system, not in a document
repository.  This session will examine the issues of managing compound
documents using a repository both in terms of what is possible in the
market today and what the approaches will be in the future.  Compound
document technologies examined include Object Linking and Embedding,
OpenDoc, proprietary architectures and SGML.

Thursday, February 24, General Session

Document Presentation & Distribution
8:30 am - 10:30 am
Chair: Frank Gilbane

There is no hotter topic these days than electronic document delivery.
Businesses are already implementing electronic delivery systems and
reducing document distribution costs. Businesses also have many
requirements for rapid delivery of paper documents, and will for the
foreseeable future. There are still challenges facing companies who want
to implement on-demand document delivery for either electronic or paper
media, including support for color, multimedia, or hypernavigation,
and integrating a delivery system with a document management system.
Our keynote presenters will discuss the challenges and predict how
document delivery applications will evolve.

Tutorials - Monday, February 21, 1994

Tutorials precede Documation '94 to provide up-to-speed/or in-depth
discussions of mainstream issues to be addressed during the conference
program. These sessions will provide conference participants with a
better understanding of the terminology, methodology and technology
discussed in the following three days.

Introduction to Document Management

The term "document management" has a different meaning to anyone you
ask to define the term. And one definition is probably just as good as
any other. This session will take a look at the basic concepts of
document management and attempt to provide a better understanding of how
to define it; what processes are involved; the terminology; and available

Industry Standards

Can you define the following standards? CCITT, TIFF, SGML, DSSSL,
HyTime, ODA, SQL, CGM. Can you make the decision on which to use in
your organization? What are the benefits of one over another? How does
one work with the others? What products are available today to support
these standards? This session will provide a guide to industry standards
and how each plays a role in the overall process of document

Electronic Distribution

A number of options are available today for the electronic distribution
of information. How must information be created and managed to allow for
the method of electronic distribution that you chose? What technology is
available now to support delivery of information through electronic
books,online and optical disks? How does electronic mail play a role?

Imaging & Workflow

What are the components of an imaging system? What are the unique
aspects of imaging? How does image processing fit into an organization's
overall document management philosophy? What is the relationship
between imaging and electronic workflow?  What technologies support
electronic workflow? This session will provide answers to these questions
and present examples of existing applications.

Database Technology

A number of issues must be addressed in building an organizational
database. How is the information to be accessed? For what purposes will
the information be used? What are the advantages of object-oriented
database technologies over relational? Will the database be centralized
or decentralized? Is security an issue? Does SGML meet organizational
requirements? What tools are available today to support document

Authoring & Copyright Issues

As documents go electronic, information can be re-used in ways that its
author never intended. Who "owns" electronic documents? Does it matter
whether the author is an employee? What about multimedia -- are the
rules the same for text, graphics, sound or movies? What kinds of re-use
are permitted under the law? What constitutes permission? How far must
corporations go to police their employees' use of information? What if
you also do business oveseas -- whose law applies? In this sesson we look
at the many questions corporations must ask themselves when doing
business in the electronc age, and we discuss tools and procedures that
can help firms minimize their liability.
