Abstract

Business document are created in different formats (e.g, word documents, presentations, emails) collectively referred here as ‘information documents’. Such Information documents are worked on collaboratively and also reviewed at different levels in the organization. Often the information across versions is lost due to space constraints, ease of maintenance, etc. Information Management technologies have reached maturity level to deal with on-line access, editing and upload of data- associating it with exact user (her access rights, viewing rights, etc). This state of art has not translated to better Change Management of information documents, due to several reasons. We propose hierarchical tracking and On-Demand merging of changes in information documents that can overcome challenges in existing state-of-the-art.
