DB2® Document Manager provides document management services for all types of documents.

Compound documents are comprised of multiple components such as a Microsoft® Word document with an embedded Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and an embedded GIFF image. Each component's lifecycle and security is managed by DB2 Document Manager individually while the appropriate interrelationships are maintained. The interrelationships of managed components may effect the retention of individual components. Through its integration with IBM® DB2 Records Manager, DB2 Document Manager ensures that appropriate business rules are applied when related documents of record are processed. Compound document services:

- relate individual components with each other to create a single, virtual, entity
- maintain referential integrity of component relationships
- support XML instances with components
- provide version control for the components as well as the single entity
- deliver an easy to use Web-based client to create, search, and browse documents (simple or compound) and navigate through the interrelationships

Lifecycle Services manages the state and security of a document throughout its life. It provides:
- configurable, rules-based Lifecycle Services
- simple, menu-driven administrative interface
- revision level document control
- automated change management
- drag and drop state control

Web-based End-User Interface extends and simplifies user interaction with the document library with:
- Explorer-like interface
- extensive foldering capabilities to organize documents
- complex searches may be defined and associated with a unique folder
- messaging awareness
- easy and complete configuration

Application integration surfaces the strength of the repository through everyday business applications. It lets administrators and users
- exchange property values between Microsoft Office documents and the library
- automatically detects related components and add them to the library
- provide administrator flexibility in assigning DB2 Document Manager commands to applications

DB2® Records Manager builds upon sound recordkeeping and brings an application-enabling engine approach to e-records management. It provides one central location for record classification and retention policies. It is a solution for organizations that need to:

- demonstrate compliance with US Government standard DoD 5015.2 - STD June 2002
- improve management controls over both electronic and physical records
- apply retention and disposition management to electronic and physical information

The tools and modules let customers and Business Partners:
- apply complete lifecycle management to information assets.
- apply records management consistently in a manner that is non-intrusive to current business practices and IT environments and
- deliver a single e-records solution integrated across multiple applications -- including IBM® and non-IBM systems and Windows® and non-Windows applications.

Unique strengths include
- the engine approach which e-records enables applications without installing a desktop records management application.
- Recordkeeping Methods Modeling (RMM) for easy adoption across business models or geographic specific methods -- unlike traditional records management applications (RMAs) which generally have a fixed model and must be modified for unique recordkeeping methods. Also unlike most RMA's, the Records Manager engine does not store or extract records from the host business application. It applies retention and disposition rules to the documents within the host business application's repository, ensuring the security of the document is not disturbed.
- localization which allows the look and feel of the Web Administration Client to be modified without any programming. Simplified customization allows easy inclusion of custom extensions such as customer specific error messages.
- the Web-based design.
- design for large-scale implementation.
- suitability for software vendors who may seek US DoD 5015.2 certification for their application software. By embedding DB2 Records Manager into their business software, a software product maker can achieve certification to the 5015.2 standard or their own proprietary standard.
