The FBI launched a document management system that took 12 years to build.
The FBI is done with paper files and has switched to digital documents. According to the Wall Street Journal it took the FBI 12 years to build the computer system to go digital.
The FBI showed the new system to reporters this week. The old paper based system has been now officially shut down. The system is known as Sentinel and the effort has cost more than $600 million. Obviously a digital system makes sharing much easier, crucial in today's fast paced world with cyber and real world terrorism.
