Document management and collaboration

Mark Gould of Addleshaw Goddard has just launched a new blog, called Enlightened Tradition the blog will look at the use of Knowledge Management by Law Firms. In one of his first posts Mark looks at the issue of Document Management and Collaboration using both Document Management Systems (DMS) and Wikis.

Mark raises some interesting points around the use of DMS systems by Law Firms, arguing that Law Firms don't necessarily require DMS systems to be "collaborative" because of the nature and type of documents they are creating. Having said that I believe Wikis can be used in Law Firms to facilitate collaboration but you need to consider carefully how you will tie their use into any existing DMS or Content Management System.
