You can tag documents for searching and can easily search document contents as long as it is in a searchable format. It is also well suited for document management so documents that no longer have business value or that need to be purged for legal and statutory reasons can be easily identified and purged when the retention period is up, or kept longer if a law suit is pending or active.
