Chapter 7. Document Administration with DOCMan

There are two approaches to the topic of document administration: on the one hand, there are large commercial solutions such as Documentum (http://www.documentum.com/) and OpenText (http://www.opentext.de/), which are geared to profoundly influence the processes of an enterprise; on the other hand, there is the simple administration of downloads, which is standard fare with a CMS such as Mambo. A middle approach between these two is being offered by the DOCMan Mambo extension. It administers files and downloads, but, in addition, offers detailed rights administration, which is based on Mambo's user administration.
