Nowadays, organizational members manage the huge amount of digital documents that they exploit at work. To do that, they organize documents into individual hierarchies. Actually, these documents are really parts of a company’s capital as they reflect past experiences, present competences and impending expertise. Unfortunately, even if corporate documents represent high value-added material, they still mostly remain unknown from the organization as a whole. That is the reason why this paper proposes to build a unified view of corporate documents. Our approach is complementary to current content-based ones because it relies on an original metrics related to documents usage within an organization.
