Types of Document Management Software: On-Premise

March 12, 2014

Modern document management software solutions are designed to be easily distributed among desktops.

Like you, we’re used to installing software on our computers and servers and then launching the application from our desktops. While that is a familiar way of installing and using applications, advances in software engineering have gone beyond that, particularly for multi- user applications like document management solutions. For modern solutions it is common to emulate the way in which the worldwide web works with its common applications such as shopping for books or making travel arrangements. Nothing is “launched” during these activities; instead all the work is done from within the web browser. This makes teaching people how to use a “program” considerably simpler since virtually all users are familiar with operating a browser. Document management software is no exception when it comes to this innovation. So while a number of document management software products still require the “install” on each individual desktop and another on the server, more modern solutions don’t. Modern solutions are designed to be easily distributed from desktop to desktop, requiring little to no maintenance there, and making the deployment to multiple users simple and easy. The popularity of this type of software has created two new categories to refer to this kind of solution: On-Premise and On- Demand. 


On-Premise software is similar to the original client/server model where you install software on the premises for use by all people connected to that server. The primary difference however is that the server acts like a website, negating the need to install the “client” side on each of the variety of desktops scattered throughout the firm. Instead each computer can access this application by simply pointing their browser to the internal “website”. This will simply load the finance application in the browser window. Software using this model is very convenient for both continuous and casual users. Some variations also let you roll out different sites for different types of users, so that casual users who don’t really need to have access to all the features can accomplish their tasks without being burdened with unfamiliar features not necessary for them.
