Abstract

In today’s governance, all of the elements for effective development depend upon an effective document management infrastructure. The public sector, especially in the emerging economies, has to rely more and more on automated, reliable solutions in order to keep their information safe and readily accessible for effective governance. It is important to select and implement a digital asset management system that is cost-effective, and adequately addresses workflow, integration, interoperability, scalability and security. This paper develops a decision model to assist in evaluating digital repository deployment in the public sector. Five technologies, namely, EPrint, Dspace, Fedora Repository, Greenstone and SAP Document Management System, used for digital asset management are explored. Comparison of the features, benefits and advantages of these technologies were evaluated with respect to installation process, functionality, performance, cost, security, usability, workflow, scalability and interoperability. It was found that some of the open source institutional repository software compared favourably with proprietary document management system, given the characteristics of document generation and utilization in the public sector.
