Hello I working in the life sciences industry.

Currently we are looking at the new edms system.

I am comparing BIOVIA QUMAS, EMC Documentum and SAP DMS.

I'll tell you some of the things we think are the most important things to consider when introducing the system.

1. Use the edms system to satisfy FDA 21 CFR Part 11

2. We want to convert the paper documents we have into electronic documents to make the electronic documents.

3. We do not have much time to validate many of our document files into SAP DMS. I was wondering about these things.

4. What industry is SAP DMS focused on?

Best regards

Hi James,

to be honest your question is covering a really broad range and for example the requirements for "FDA 21 CFR Part 11" I think that you should contact your local SAP organisation.

SAP DMS is part of the PLM module/area and so it is heavily used in production areas. But there is no specific inddustry DMS is focused to.

Best regards,
