Hardware Specifications for Lifecycle v5.0

Installing and Configuring DocuNECT v5.0


Table of Contents

DocuNECT Document Managements systems can be user process intensive depending on the operations they are performing. In order to architect the right DM solution, consider the following points:

1) Average number of documents being captured.
2) The frequency of the capture processes (are they running every minute or every day).
3) The type of operations being performed on the documents, i.e. copying between disk locations, OCR'ring the document content.
4) The number of users (if any) capturing/managing documents from the desktop
