File monitoring Systems
A file monitoring system should not be confused with a file system, which manages all types of data and files in an operating system (OS), or a database management system (DBMS), which has relational database capabilities and includes a programming language for further data manipulation.
A file monitoring system's tracking component is key to the creation and monitoring of this system, where documents containing various stages of processing are shared and interchanged on an ongoing basis.
The system may contain features like:
- Assigning queued document numbers for processing
- Owner and process mapping to track various stages of processing
- Report generation
- Create, modify, copy, delete and other file operations
