Abstract

Ever-growing digitalization and increasingly competitive markets are driving industry and the public sector into fast-paced transformation. Competitive advantage is being acquired through technology investments made possible by previously unavailable resources, freed by process automation, simplification, and rationalization. Under these contingencies, we propose an innovative document management platform, featuring a collaborative document editing technique and a blockchain certification procedure. The two proposing parties - a private company and an academic organization - mutually agreed on employing open-source technologies as a strategic means to promote software reuse and developer communities’ support, and consequently reduce implementation costs and ensure interoperability.
