Documentum (6.x) route and eConnector component can be used to store information of any kind (including text, graphics, scanned images, and so forth) into company repositories called Docbases within the Documentum server. Each Docbase stores two kinds of information for each document:
Document content — The file you create using applications such as word processors or spreadsheets.
Metadata or properties — Descriptive characteristics, such as the document type, format, title.
The Documentum component allows you to specify permissions that users or groups will have to the document stored on the Documentum server, to apply a workflow to the document and to assign attributes to the document.
