18 Conclusion MyCoRe/Miless – a solution for industry? Miless already fits for many aspects in corporate document managementMiless seems to be stable enough to hold also critical documentsMiless is principly cheap, if the data model fits your needsMyCoRe will be a solution for nearly any aspectMyCoRe is easy to adapt to nearly every data modelThere is a good knowledge base in universities which perhaps could be also made transparent in an electronic wayIndustry can participate in Universities work in MyCoRe. They get a free product and by using it, they give the community more power.The bigger the installed base of MyCoRe is, the better the results would be and the more features could be implementedIBM should invest in bringing MyCoRe also to industrial customers!
