TAdviser learned on what innovations the attention of SED/ESM-sistem developers will be concentrated.

Overview of the Russian EDMS/ECM systems market


2019: Development plans for an EDMS/ECM systems

TAdviser conducted survey of the Russian developers EDMS/ ECM- systems and partners of the foreign ECM vendors provided in Russia and learned what innovations they prepare for the clients.

SED/ESM-sistem developers actively develop the solutions


The Directum system develops within the long-term strategy of Directum DigitALL. Strategy considers the modern and perspective directions of development of process management systems and corporate content: electronic interaction of 100% of staff of the company, application of different types of signatures, legally significant storage of electronic documents, including archive, exchange of documents with partners, omnichannel of access to a system (mobile applications, chat-bots, personal accounts), use of tools on the basis of AI and RPA, creation of industry solutions and also solutions for new business challenges.

According to Konstantin Istomin, the chief executive of Directum, development will be gained by functionality for digitalization of HR processes.

Not so long ago the Directum company held a series of the closed meetings with representatives of business on transfer to an electronic form of personnel document flow. To the end of discussions participants came to a conclusion that this area most of all needs today automation, including managements of business trips and expense reports, vacation planning. Automation of these processes considerably reduces load of HR department and accounting. As all employees participate in HR processes, the effect of changes will be especially noticeable, - the expert believes.

For support of a wide range of tasks of Directum also released new generation of the platform which uses modern architectural concepts (microservices, asynchronous processing, new UI\UX of the web client, etc.). The platform meets requirements of the large companies and holdings, maintains a heavy user load. To reduce labor input of customization of a system and support of the adapted solutions, the tools simplifying setup are used: layers of development, means of the best visualization of creation of processes. Besides, the trend on import substitution as one of mandatory requirements to a system is considered.

According to representatives of the company, mechanisms on the basis of AI will get more deeply into basic functionality of a system, to eliminate routine labor-consuming procedures, becoming as a result an integral part of business processes of customers. The solutions Directum support the concept of smart processes. "Smart" means convenient for the person and effective to the enterprise. In them there are no excess stages, excess actions, paper documents.

In general, the ideas for Directum development much. Let's not disclose them everything, we will save effect of surprise for our clients and competitors, - Konstantin Istomin notes.


DocsVision developers are focused on development of low-code of tools of the Docsvision platform, expansion of means of customization without development (generally for the web client), ready widgets for different subject tasks and expansion of types of solutions which can be created on the platform.

Besides, according to the president of the company Vladimir Andreyev, development of the platform goes in parallel in 4 directions:

  • Development of functionality of archives,
  • Development of control functions business by processes,
  • Creation of horizontal and vertical applications for functional divisions,
  • Development of functions of group work with information.

In addition, specialists of the company pay much attention to new approaches in the organization of the user interface and to instruments of independent customization of a workplace of the user.


In the next one-two years updating of design of the EDMS Thesis is planned. Analytical work which included poll of clients and studying of a feedback is carried already out.

In general, we aim to make design more flexible and convenient and also to reduce the number of clicks which the user needs to make to perform this or that operation, - Ilya Zaychikov, Product owner of the EDMS Thesis tells.

Besides, developers plan further development of mobile application of the EDMS Thesis, adding in it the most demanded functions. At the same time it should remain simple in mastering and use, representatives of the company consider.

Also, according to Ilya Zaychikov, transfer of the EDMS Thesis to the new version of the CUBA platform is planned.

It means that the product will support the most modern stack of technologies, therefore, customers will receive the maximum freedom in development of the information systems and will be able to keep up to date. Plus, the new version of the platform will allow to increase convenience of work and to add functions, new, interesting to users. In general, we constantly work on performance improvement of the EDMS Thesis and we carry out load tests at the bigger and bigger number of users, - he tells.

"Korus Five|Document flow"

Corus Consulting Group is going to expand functionality of own solutions. In particular, upgrade Korus Five|of the solution "Document flow" on the Microsoft SharePoint platform, including, due to expansion of interaction with external services is expected. Integration with service of court ushers (FSSP), the Unified Federal Register of Bankruptcy Information (EFRSB), the Justice state system, the website of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation and so forth is planned.

Besides, according to Elena Piskunovich, the Head of Department of portal solutions of Corus Consulting Group, a system will be replenished with analytical IT tools: from intellectual recognition of documents and automatic purpose of instructions depending on complexity of the agreement to expanded analytics. The solution will be able not only to build forecasts of risks in legal and financial spheres, but also will present analysis results in the evident form – using dashbord and digital show-windows.

Solutions of EOS Group

Sergey Poltev, head of modern ECM solutions of EOS Group,

The near-term outlook of EOS Group company is connected with further development of new developments, such as archive of electronic originals of documents providing storage of electronic documents and the automated control system for projects (ACSP) intended for maintenance of project management.

Besides, products of the company will and be improved further according to relevant criteria:

  • Customizability – objects, sets of metadata, processes, representation of results.
  • Cross-platform, availability for service with different hardware and software platforms.
  • Integration opportunities. Existence/lack of ready mechanisms of integration.
  • User experience. Simplicity and convenience of settings.
  • Speed making changes in settings and processes.
  • Performance and scalability.
  • Import substitution, compatibility with other domestic goods and close integration within necessary scenarios of work.

In the systems of EOS Group company a number of the functional solutions increasing the processing speed of the growing content volumes is supposed. In particular, it:

  • Fall forward of interaction of the user with a system due to further improvement of interfaces and improvement of the user experience;
  • Built-in means of BI and evident visualization of aggregated data;
  • New interfaces: recognition and speech synthesis;
  • Application of algorithms of artificial intelligence for search, annotations, classifications, routings of requests and other tasks.

Solutions of Business Logic

Business Logic actively works on increase in platform opportunities of the products, tries to enrich with those functions which in this or that interpretation will be demanded in the majority of application solutions. Main vectors of functional enrichment of products three:

  • these are legislative initiatives, for example, transition to electronic personnel document management, legally significant exchange of documents, etc.;
  • requests of the current and potential customers;
  • internal research projects on applied use of the innovative technologies, such as blockchain, robots, machine vision, chat-bots and other;

Now we conduct works on elimination of routine transactions in our solutions using program robots in total with services of intellectual search, extraction and classification of data and also to creation of digital assistants who study during the work with users of a system and further will be able to replace if necessary them in a number of transactions. Users of our products in the long term will need only to make necessary management decisions on the basis of the prepared and analyzed data and to report the solutions to a system by any convenient method, including using voice commands in a natural language, - Artem Moiseenko, the head of department of examination and development of Business Logic company tells.

Solutions of Lanit

One of priorities of development of the ECM direction of Lanit is connected with blitz implementations, i.e. projects lasting a week, but not months. Within implementation of this process, the company released the solution "LanDocs: Express".

We decided to create the solution EDMS which would be implemented into very short terms, about two weeks, or even independently the customer. For the large systems it is, you see, very non-standard approach to work because usually purchase of licenses is followed by the consulting project on setup of the solution and implementation forces of the partner or the vendor. And we decided to simplify and reduce these actions as much as possible, - Alexander Rodionov, the director of the department of management of documents, the head of the Center of innovations told Lanit.

Solutions SER

The German vendor ECM SER Group is going to offer clients the following innovations:

  • Own cognitive service using AI and ML technologies which will allow to take information from unstructured content and to classify documents on the basis of several technologies.
  • Service of federated search which will allow to perform search in different sources (mail CRM ERP) and to consolidate search results in the single interface. Other use of this technology – consolidation of data from several conditionally independent installations that is relevant for some global companies.
  • Integration with Office 365 of Google Docs (Google Suite)
  • Own solution for collaboration, on the basis of iRoom service. This interface is intended for inclusion in a circuit of a system of external participants with full-fledged opportunities of data entry, search and participation in business processes. At the same time, general audit of actions is conducted and all data are processed in one system.

In addition, development of current versions of integration with external systems, such as SharePoint, SAP, Dynamics, etc. is expected.

In 2020 the company is going to complete setup of the global cloud version of the platform on the basis of which she will be able to offer the services standardized by SaaS in the majority of the countries, including Russia.

If to speak about more distant perspectives, then, according to Dmitry Mervitsky, the head of representative office of SER in Russia and the CIS, support of new methods of input and information search is planned to implementation: voice input, extraction of data from not text images, etc.

On each of strategic directions we have a clear and detailed plan of development (roadmap) with which development process is verified and which is adjusted depending on trends of both the local, and world IT markets, - he tells.


About development perspectives EDMS/ ECM- systems M-Files, told Svetlin Savov, the development director of the company FTS Russia, the golden partner of corporation M-Files.

The Finnish developer continues to develop a document management system and information as the platform which integrates information from all corporate systems without data migration.

According to the plan of development of a product of change will affect many functionality of a system. So, intellectual opportunities of M-Files for hands-off processing of big sets of documents with the purpose to reduce participation of the person improve. Intellectual search and recommendations about content will help to increase convenience of users in work with information.

Developers continue to improve already available artificial intelligence technologies in M-Files: automatic classification on document types, auto eject from documents of important information, automatic adding of metadata and start of workflows, automatic detection of metadata on the basis of behavior of users.

Though the M-Files platform also integrates all systems and information warehouses in the companies via own interface, developers are going to integrate for convenience of users the system interface with other popular business applications: M-Files for Salesforce, M-Files for SharePoint Online, M-Files for Teams, M-Files for Google G Suite, M-Files Advanced Outlook Add-in. Also in a system new connectors for external information warehouses will appear.

Daily work in M-Files will change thanks to the new web interface, new opportunities of comparison of documents, joint editing online, to improvements of the user experience and system performance too.

Other important changes will concern a cloud platform of M-Files: the cloud computing architecture will change, there will be new cloud demos spaces and new tools and services for setup and management of the cloud version of a system will become available.


The CompanyMedia system will get the new webdocs 2.0 interface in the nearest future. According to Vadim Ipatov, the deputy CEO of InterTrust company for business development, it will be new approach to the organization of work of managers. Also in the solution the EDMS intellectual functions which will take under the control routine transactions in a system actively develop and will reduce a share of manual work of users.

"First Form"

Denis Seleznyov, the CEO of First Form, answering a question of new features and opportunities, noted that in The First Form system the artificial intelligence gradually appears. Besides, developers of the company are engaged in integration into RPA solutions.


Perspective functions of the Galantis ECM system as told in Galaktika Corporation, concern use of technology of containers, a possibility of deployment in public and private clouds for dynamic balancing of loading and decrease in TCO and also intellectual technologies of data processing.


The Documino ESM-platform of ID-Management Technologies company expects a number of significant completions which answer modern requests of the market concerning functionality of solutions ESM/SED.

Today at the market new requests: from large-scale, "heavyweight" EDMS even more often expect the opportunities available in widespread IT solutions of the user class: user-friendly intuitive interfaces, multiplatformity, simplicity of search and data entry, - the deputy CEO of the company for strategic development Mikhail Egorov comments.

In this light a product of ID-Management Technologies – SEDO – expects emergence of the following new features:

  • Development of mobile opportunities. The trend in this direction means development of the mobile client of EDMS taking into account needs of all users, from non-management employees to heads of top level for work with documents "on the run" on the user devices. So, for Documino the opportunity for work with devices on Android and iOS is implemented, works on creation of new functionality of these solutions are conducted.

  • Support of opportunities of joint work. One of the main requests from clients: support of different options of joint work within the ECM solution. Concerning the Documino platform in this direction the instrument of support of holding meetings of Boards of Directors will be soon added.

  • Improvement of the user interface. Business needs the digital instruments constructed on the advanced techniques of software development, providing possibilities of flexible configuration and expansion of functionality according to requests of employees. The third major direction of the next changes Documino consists in improvement of the user interface through continuous increase in convenience of work with corporate documents on any device and on any task.

2018: SEE/ESM systems innovations

Artificial intelligence and machine learning

Artificial intelligence technology and machine learning already have a notable impact on development of the modern ECM systems. So, many developers of systems put in the road maps opportunities for use of processing of Big Data and intellectual search in development of products in 2019.

The innovative technologies get into an EDMS/ECM system
All these innovative technologies are aimed first of all at providing and support of digital transformation without which it is difficult for business to survive and to develop successfully in difficult economic conditions, - Alexander Axelrod, the area director of document flow of Corus Consulting Group considers.

Development of artificial intelligence and machine learning will become useful to the EDMS/ECM market, Elena Ivanova, the marketing director of EOS Group believes.

Of course, till that time when AI replaces at least the secretary, still far, but emergence of legal bots in Russia and abroad demonstrates that a part of routine functions can be assigned to artificial intelligence without serious consequences soon, - she notes.

Artem Permyakov, R&D-директор Directum, also considers that the artificial intelligence will be the most demanded and useful innovation in the next years. According to him, AI can be applied to digitalization of content and digitalization of interaction.

Emergence of content in a system and its processing will happen to the maximum participation of artificial intelligence, Permyakov says. AI is capable to take data from unstructured documents, to perform their classification, tagging, entering in a system and to build further routing. It means not only determination responsible, but also formation of projects of automatic answers on the basis of historical data on correspondence. AI can check not only a form, but also contents of documents: their completeness, existence and correctness of necessary details to reveal risks within terms of the contract (advance payments, penalties, etc.).

In this process a role of artificial intelligence — to exclude excess stages, to lower load of people who process documents. It is necessary to release them for more intellectual work, and to leave processes of entering and routing to a system, - R&D-директор Directum notes.

As for digitalization of processes, in this direction intelligent tools will not only execute routine transactions, but also to independently make decisions on the basis of data in a system, unavailable to the person for the analysis. It is about small solutions on the importance which need to be accepted every day. There is a lot of similar routine solutions therefore they need to be shifted from the person to the machine.

As an additional trend it is possible to select robotization of processes using the different Robotic Process Automation systems superstructures. It is impossible to call this technology completely intellectual, but it finds application in many large organizations. If the artificial intelligence is "brain" of a system which can analyze information and offer the shortest solution of problems, then program robots are "hands" which can execute the repeating routine transactions by order of "brain", - Artem Permyakov adds.

Alexander Rodionov, the director of the department of document management systems Lanit, calls machine learning technologies the next stage of development of a solutions EDMS/ECM.

A large number of information comes to the organizations from different sources: entering the addresses in the form of requests from the websites, messengers, social networks, e-mails with investments in different formats, delivery of paper documents. Machine learning technologies are capable to take data from all formats and to classify them. It will allow the large organizations to manage all information in a single stream, providing increase in efficiency of such business processes as customer relationship management and also productive, purchasing and legal activity, - he tells.

Roman Konovalov, the CEO of ID-Management Technologies, adds that the artificial intelligence can automatically help, without participation of staff of the company, standardize documentation. For this purpose a system analyzes historical data, gradually studies – and at the exit will be able independently to make out and adjust document templates.

However it is necessary to understand that there are many factors which are slowing down penetration of innovations into ECM sphere. First, concerns of customers in the field of data security are still strong. Mechanisms of work of the majority of intelligent tools still are "black boxes" for business users, and they are not ready to trust data, crucial for business, to systems which can make decisions without participation of the person, or the principles of work of which they do not understand. Secondly, "smart" technologies have a number of technical restrictions: from the volume of the training selection to quality of data which are sent to processing. Until they are overcome, such solutions will not be included into daily use of the companies of the different sizes, - the expert considers.

Vladimir Andreyev, the president of DocsVision, adds that concerning artificial intelligence it is still possible to speak only about the separate pilot projects implemented by early innovators, but not about mass solvent demand.


From innovations which will actively develop in the next years it is also worth noting a blockchain. Now the perspective direction of development of technology is application of a chain of blocks for ensuring the legal importance of the documents placed on long-term storage.

Use of blockchain technology for storage of hashes of the document allows to prove easily and quickly its invariance regardless of storage life, - Artem Permyakov notes R&D-директор Directum.

Alexey Semidetnov, the CEO of Conteq, adds that blockchain is actively applied in niche products.

Already there are solutions on risk analysis at signing of the contracts: semantic analysis of the text, the analysis of partners according to open data, the analysis of history of relationship. Including such solutions are actively implemented also we, - the CEO of Conteq tells.


The convenience of an information access and speed of its processing create already now requirements to solutions which are under construction on technologies considered as the innovation. According to the expert Lanit Alexander Rodionov, chat-bots and messengers, are used for interaction with EDMS regarding the systems of a reminder and the notification, information search, creation of requests and sending messages.

Sergey Plaunov, the head BPM and ECM the companies "Croc", adds that at chat-bots it is possible to specify a current status according to the document or order, to create new order and so forth.

Biometric authentication

According to experts of the market, also use of biometrics seems perspective: the technology of biometric authentication actively develops and, perhaps, in the future it will be integrated into EDMS.

For example, in Russia a Single biometric system for remote identification of citizens when receiving financial services is already created. It is integrated about a Unified identification and authentication system and SIEI that indirectly testifies for benefit of perspectives of application of biometrics together with digital signatures or instead of like those, - the representative of EOS Group Elena Ivanova notes.

Other innovations

Denis Seleznyov, the CEO of the company "The first Form", lists some more innovations which can find application in EDMS/ ECM- systems. In particular, integration into voice recognition systems will give reduction of time of heads for problem definition. Geotracking will help to manage employees better. The predictive analytics will help to select more accurately contractors of tasks, the profitable transactions and perspective clients.

We, of course, can call this big data – but rather this just evolutionary development of those capabilities of information systems which were put several years ago. There came time of monetization of smart technologies, - Denis Seleznyov considers.

Vladimir Andreyev, the president of DocsVision, believes that in the conditions of digital transformation which requires expansion of the nomenclature of processes and opportunities of their continuous improvement an important role is played by development of Low-code of tools of platforms and an opportunity to implement projects on Agile to techniques: in other words, an opportunity to quickly make changes to the automated processes and to receive results short and it is low - labor-consuming stages. These tasks require special architecture and existence of the corresponding tools.

2017: EDMS/ECM systems innovations

All innovations which are now developed in the market and are implemented in EDMS/ ECM- systems, are connected with market trends. For this reason developers are engaged in development of mobile versions and create integration gateways for seamless work with other information systems. In addition, possibilities of joint work over documents are improved, user interfaces "are ground", added new functionality.

According to Vladimir Andreyev, the president of DocsVision company, a first line embedding of artificial intelligence technologies, works with BigData, integration into messengers, including support of bots is represented. The increasing value is purchased by support of full-fledged cloud and hybrid configurations, including storage of files on cloud resources.

Elena Ivanova, the marketing director of the company "Electronic office systems" (EOS GROUP), tells that the company in the systems will improve communications between users (the messenger, a chat, the system of notifications will appear), to develop the search system regarding relevance and performance and also a process management system. Such technologies as Big Data, and IoT, according to her, are also actively applied by Machine Learning in developments of EOS Group.

Victor Weinstein, the CEO of Business Logic company,[1] adds[2]that for small and medium business the modern, competitive ECM platform should be cloud. Just because to the enterprise of a segment of SMB it is economically inexpedient to have own ECM infrastructure. At the same time, for an enterprise segment the modern ECM platform should have such properties as infinite scalability, centrality, access to a system from any device, including mobile (it is possible that shortly the priority will be behind mobility – Mobile First), intellectuality, flexibility, reliability and security.

Expansion of opportunities of joint work

Domestic developers SED/ESM-sistem go the way expansions of opportunities of joint work over documents.

Sergey Evsikov, the director of "Ascon System of design", in particular, speaks about it. According to him, in Pilot-ECM developers aim to expand possibilities of simultaneous operation of several specialists (users) with one document. Process parallelization significantly reduces a set-up time of documents of the company — here both the automatic conflict resolution, and change tracking, and approval. At the same time the document is updated on the fly, without reset.

Similar innovations wait also for EDMS from 1C. So, Nadezhda Kochetkova, the evangelist of "1C: Document Flow", tells that in the new edition systems in 2018 on preparation and joint work with documents it will not be necessary to spend time as a system will allow: at the same time to make changes in the document at parallel approval by several approving persons; to automatically consolidate the notes issued by the approving persons; to automatically create the protocol of disagreements.

New functionality mobile EDMS

The mobility is one of the most popular trends. In opinion Sergey Tikhonov, the commercial director "The first Form", in the field of EDMS\ECM those mobile applications which can implement difficult business logic are demanded and support the customized processes of the specific customer. Mobile application should be able to adapt under business requirements exactly as well as the main SED\ESM the solution. The mobility of employees with minimum loss of quality of their work is only this way reached.

In our practice not less than 60% of clients show the most live interest in mobile application. But very few people from them really understand what opportunities open before the company at high-quality implementation of the mobile solution. Now there is an accumulation of new managerial experience in modern conditions when technologies develop quicker, than managerial practicians, - Sergey Tikhonov added.

Vasily Babintsev, the marketing director of Directum, notes that vendors take steps in the direction of digital transformation, and for users it means completely paperless work. At the same time, mobile technologies play a special role here: ECM systems include solutions for each employee category today.

Applications for heads provide remote control, an opportunity to consider and sign documents on the way, at meetings, in business trips. Applications for non-management employees allow to involve in processes including non-automated personnel and to provide the simple interface for viewing instructions and their accomplishment. It occurs thanks to penetration of chat-bots and messengers into corporate systems.

New opportunities will be shortly had by mobile "1C: Document Flow". Nadezhda Kochetkova from 1C, told that the company is going to implement possibilities of enciphering and signing by the strengthened qualified electronic signature of documents from the mobile client.

It will increase convenience of legally significant interaction with partners, will reduce terms of exchange of documents and, the main thing, will allow quickly and without binding to a workplace to sign contractual and other document types, - she explained.

Elena Ivanova, the marketing director of Electronic Office Systems company, tells that the functionality of mobile applications of EOS Group promoted for several hundred percent:

The new server of mobile solutions provides viewing the connected documents, expanded synchronization of events, a search capability of documents in online, storage of history of the processed documents, editing the issued instructions, the direction for secondary vising, creation of draft documents and initiative instructions and many other things. So from the mobile client it is possible to register the document, to send it and to withdraw back, to create the draft document and to vise it, to find the document and to put in a personal folder.

It is possible to work with two tablets at the same time: from one at work, from other house, and all data will be synchronized though work is conducted not in a cloud and on devices data really lie.

We also processed all interface completely. Now we have a unified interface on three platforms - Windows, Apple and Android. The user can change devices and at him visually nothing will change.

Embedding of functions of the adjacent systems

Any modern competitive EDMS has the powerful process engine (workflow) that does it rather close to BPM systems. Of course, solutions of these classes are not identical and interchangeable, but in terms of automation of difficult logic of document handling modern became closer than EDMS to Business Process Management Suite. Alexey Trefilov, the director of the company of ELMA, in particular, says about it.

According to him, in the nearest future we will continue to observe the progressing complication of systems, building of their opportunities due to adding of functions of systems, earlier adjacent in relation to them. Along with these bulky and difficult solutions will appear small, intended for automation of simple niche tasks.

Exit for a framework of traditional document flow and integration with the third-party systems In addition to classical document flow it is necessary for customers more and more functions automating their work.

According to Alexander Nazarov, the sales director of Haulmont (Haulmont), to the forefront there are problems of integration of EDMS with the third-party systems, consolidation of internal and external document flow, data exchange with the internal portal or the website of customer organization.

We aim to satisfy all wishes of our customers. This year we added the module "Comparison and Recognition" using technologies of ABBYY to EDMS THESIS. Now a system can not only recognize the text of the scanned documents, but also compare the scan copy to versions of the same documents in office formats, - the representative of Haulmont told.

Artur Ishkhanyan, the senior chief executive of ID-Management Technologies notices that many organizations use EDMS not only directly, but also as the management tool data and their analysis. Therefore even more often in systems such functionality as intellectual document retrieval, comparison of different versions, management of meetings is available. Integration with other systems of the enterprise allows to unload master data (key data on business) in EDMS and to use them for operational verification of documents and their compliance to the real situation in the company.

Dmitry Golosovsky, the head of marketing of InterTrust company, also notes that the range of tasks which face clients extends and covers the new functional areas which are beyond traditional document flow.

The companies aim to optimize dokumentoyomky business processes which automation will allow to cut down expenses: purchases, passing of checks, etc. There was a request for intellectual and analytical opportunities of EDMS, - he adds.

According to Vladimir Kokhan, the commercial director [[|Digital Design, an interesting opportunity which EDMS can receive in the near future is use of the artificial intelligence (AI) for the solution of standard problems of document flow.

Many traditional problems can be solved by AI already now more effectively, than the person, he is sure.

Possibilities of a blockchain

Interest in blockchain technology continues to grow, application for it is found in different IT solutions including in an EDMS/ECM systems. According to Victor Weinstein, the CEO of Business Logic, the company studies a blockchain and it already has first pilot projects on which the linking of this technology with ECM solutions is approved. He expects emergence of the first commercial projects in 2018.

This technology has at least one positive aspect: it allows to create the systems of the class ECM for the protected exchange of documents out of the organization based on the distributed electronic signature. Without use of the uniform center of trust which is simpler for compromising. Potentially it can help to adjust confidential information exchange between a large number of the organizations which initially each other do not trust, even strictly compete, but at the same time are forced to communicate with each other, - the CEO of Business Logic explains.

Improvement of interfaces

Users wait for a user-friendly and modern interface from any system which they use. Class EDMS/ECM products – not an exception.

More and more attention is paid to convenience of interfaces, EDMS developers have selected specialists in UI/UX, and users expect that the principles of interaction with a system will be clear without additional training, - Vasily Babintsev, the marketing director of Directum notes.

Elena Ivanova, the marketing director of EOS Group, adds that three years her company does not stop over processing of interfaces of the products. According to her, it is already normal, full-time employment for today.

So it is impossible as 10 years ago to make the version with new design and to live with it 5 years. Now everything changes very quickly, and we aim to correspond to a spirit of the age, - she explains.

Support of Open Source

In the aspiration to satisfy requests of customers from public sector of EDMS will support the open source (OS). This trend grew from need of import substitution of software.

As Artur Ishkhanyan from ID-Management Technologies notes, the Russian state organizations and the enterprises needed the available analogs of foreign solutions which are not conceding to them in quality, but more loyal to the consumer at ownership cost.

Transition to the open code considerably reduces costs for licenses, support and makes solutions available to the consumer, - he adds.

Decrease in cost value of projects

According to Alexander Bader, the area development director of ECM of TerraLink company, domestic developers SED/ESM-sistem will aim to solve two problems: in every possible way to reduce the cost of licenses for the products, mainly, due to use of conditional and free products and products with the open code and also to catch up with the leading western products on technology level.

As it seems to me, these tasks strongly not well can be achievable at the same time, - the expert of TerraLink says.

According to him, in the context of this question it is necessary to speak not just about developers, but also and about large integrators which are guided by implementation of industrial products of level of SAP and OpenText and which, as well as at TerraLink company, have divisions of development.

For us and for them, undoubtedly, the problem of decrease in cost value of projects is particularly acute not less, but approaches to its solution will be essentially others. For such companies the main product task will be creation of the business solutions adapted for the Russian market, but developed on the basis of leaders of ECM/EIM-plaftorm. Of course, ORD is ours practically everything, and about this task always, anyway, it is necessary to speak first of all. However there is need for the solution and other tasks of management of business content. Experience shows that for global and even just large Russian companies use of industrial ECM platforms is the only way of their reliable solution, - Alexander Bader believes.
