|(storage)||Computer Output to Laser Disk - (COLD) The capture of large (typically mainframe
generated) reports on optical media such that sections are
accessible as individual documents. A successor technology to
"COM" (Computer Output on Microfilm).|
In 1999 the AIIM renamed COLD to ERM/COLD (Enterprise Report Management), to better reflect the changes and improvements this technology has undergone throughout the years.
An example application is PearlDoc QuickFile Information Management System (IMS).
