onDot is an out-of-box web application that runs on Apache
Tomcat. It requires Java 1.4 onwards and a database like MS
SQl 2000, Oracle 8.x, or MySQL as a back-end. If the prerequisites
and the network is in place, then the installation time for
onDot is under half a day.
However, the implementation time would differ from enterprise
to enterprise. Implem,entation is not only installation, rather
Implementation begins when Installation ends. In order to
complete the implementation of onDot, you have to populate
the business componenets like user roles, users, document
types, document indices, document workflow details etc., test
it and then start using the system.
At the bare minimum, the following steps will have to be
Identify Document types Identify various document types
that will be managed by onDot.
Identify Indices Every document type has a set of indices
that can be defined by you. You need to correctly identify
them. A correct indexing can lead to dramatic reduction
in document search times.
Document User Hierarchy The user management module of
onDot is an adaptive model that lets you capture not only
your user heirarchy, but the entities external to your enterprise
like vendors, consultants etc. and form user relations over
them. You have to document all the roles that the users
can have in the system.
List users Various users and their profiles will have
to be listed.
Identify Document channels. After identifying the document
and the user components, a document channel over various
user roles has to be built for every document type. It is
only through these channels that the document can flow.
Identify User Statistics. You have to identify the workflow
steps for which the statistics have to be generated for
Integration issues Since onDot can be integrated with
your existing systems or you can add functionality over
and above the functionalities made available by the system,
any such issues should be studied and addressed in advance.
These activities are not necessarily post installation. Rather
a study of the above before installation will make implementation
an easy job, as then implementation would just mean activating
them in the system. Our team can help you in this (Please
see the commitment services for further details) The average time for all the above activities can range from
2 weeks to 6 weeks depending on the complexity of the enterprise.
