FileNet has an extensive presence in the state and local government market.
North Dakota has installed an enterprise content management system based on FileNet technology.
The state's solution is built on the FileNet P8 platform, which the company describes as a unified enterprise content management (ECM) and business process management platform (BPM). ECM products manage documents, XML files, images and other content types. BPM software helps organizations design, execute and manage business processes.
North Dakota has declared FileNet's ECM solutions as a standard for state government agencies' business process, imaging, records and content management requirements. North Dakota is the tenth state to standardize enterprisewide on FileNet P8, according to a company spokeswoman.
The other states that have adopted FileNet include Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Tennessee.
In North Dakota, the specific ECM suites being implemented are FileNet Business Process Manager, FileNet Content Manager, and FileNet Records Manager.
The state's FileNet-based system stores such information as vehicle registrations, tax filings, flexible benefits records, and unemployment applications.
