I would like to store our generated reports in Google Docs. Would anyone recommend Docs as a Document management platform? Is there an API for Docs?

thre's a Google Documents List Data API for Google Docs. In common it is:
"...what you could do is create a semi-perfect backup system for all the Word documents on your local computer. You could also create a website which provides an alternative file explorer for Google Documents. (And as authentication is supported, you dont need to restrict yourself to listing public documents.) You could also try to mix and match this API with other Google service APIs. At this time, added to Google Documents, the growing list of GData APIs include Google Base, Blogger, Google Calendar, Code Search, Google Apps Provisioning, Google Notebook, Google Spreadsheets and Picasa photos."

Oficial Google Documents Data APIs developer discussion group is here:

I personally have never used Google Docs APIs and don't think will need it soon. I prefer a WSS or something that I can "bring home" and keep away from other's eyes rather than allow others store my data as far as the Company is concerned. As for my personal need, I use many tools and services from Google: 1 - Gmail, 2 - Google Docs, 3 - Picassa... But for personal usage only.

Hope, this helps you to figure out what you would like to do.
