The Enterprise Content Management Services infrastructure (ECMS) provides a powerful /versatile platform that leverages the Army’s investment for the development of applications that are form centric such as EOD. EOD is an application that will be utilized for the civilian on-boarding process.  Once EOD is deployed it will reduce the time required for future employees to populate the required forms while providing workflow for Human Resources producing an effective/efficient   on-boarding process.  The application is web accessible and requires only a browser to access. Logging of all transactions, the reporting of status based on the individual coupled with digital signatures and the pre-population of re-occurring data fields ensures the integrity of the numerous forms required. EOD is the culmination of a robust infrastructure, an application that is based on state of the art COTS forms technology, and the utilization of workflow that ensures accuracy/accountability resulting in and economic time efficient application that is modernizing the civilian on-boarding process for the Army.

In February 2005 the US Army and Enterprise Information Management, Inc.

began one of the world's largest e-forms implementation efforts. The integrated solution was based on IBM content manager, Lotus Forms and Silanis digital signature. 

 

Responding to ever-changing and advancing technologies in the area of forms management, "My Forms" was deployed, paving the way for a fully electronic government with streamlined government-to-government transactions and processes.  ECMS is a Section-508 compliant solution designed to bring web-based capabilities, advanced Extensible Markup Language (XML) functionality, and digital signatures to the forefront of the Army.  An enterprise infrastructure, ECMS was created to support the automation of any business process using tools that are already deployed Army-wide to 1.4 million active duty, reserve, guard, civilian and contractor users.  This infrastructure will allow the Army to significantly reduce the number of stovepipe systems across the enterprise.
