Manage your contents simply an safely.


Enterprise Content Management - ECM - is a term defined in 2005 by information professionals that has been in competition with other concepts such as EDRMS or ERMS. There is a lot of literature with terms related to document management, such as; ECM, EDRMS, ERMS, DM, KM among others, more influenced by marketing rules rather than objective reasons.

OpenKM is an ECM software, however we prefer the term EDRMS ( Enterprise Document and Record Management System), perhaps with lesser success on the marketing world but from our point of view more strict and representative.
