The implementation of a standardized DMS like D2 or the > Dell EMC Documentum Life Sciences Solution Suite requires the migration of documents from the old to the new system or a transforming of the data model within the system in order to work properly with the new application. Often this old data is not fully standardized and structured, but either based on a less controlled system such as Documentum Webtop or on a controlled system with slightly different structures such as CSC FirstDoc or Cara.

Out of curiosity to explore the new features of D2 4.6, I upgraded one of our D2 4.5 projects a few weeks ago. In this blog post I explain the new features, the upgrade, as well as our experiences with the new version of D2.

New Features

So apart from all the technical stuff, which new aspects will benefit the end users? The new release introduces a couple of valuable features.

Glühbrine

Document management is no longer greenfield terrain. By now many companies have already determined their need for a document management system and understand the benefits it offers them, especially in the Life Sciences. For this reason, nearly every company dealing with mission-critical documents has implemented some sort of solution in recent years.

The question that is now more likely to arise is whether the performance level and user friendliness of today’s system are still adequate, and/or capable of meeting growing requirements. And it could be that other providers have developed a newer, more attractive solution.

Use migration-center to keep your sales and marketing collateral up to date in SharePoint

The migration-center is an out-of-the-box product to migrate content automatically and easily from one location to another. It is designed for large volume content migrations, easy to use and works with high efficiency. The product offers a wide range of migration paths from a wide variety of source and target systems as well as a professionally documented developer API to build your own source and target system adapters. The migration-center is not only a tool to migrate your content from one system to another, but also provides possibilities to (re-)organize your content in different locations.

Use case: sales and marketing collateral

We are sometimes faced with the challenge to combine daily collaborative work on up-to-date sales and marketing collateral and filing them in a system of records like Documentum effectively. At the same time you want to establish your server as a public point of access for your partners or customers where all product information is stored, but without granting them access to your system of records with possibly confidential content. In this case you might consider separating your system of records (e.g. Documentum) and setting up a discrete server running SharePoint with public access for your partners and customers. During the last years Microsoft’s SharePoint platform has become more and more important and received increased interests due to useful collaborative capabilities. read more

Gerade blicke ich auf die Client-Server-Architekturen zurück, mit denen ich in meinen mehr als 25 Jahren als Software-Entwickler zu tun hatte. Dabei sehe ich vor meinem geistigen Auge so etwas wie ein Pendel, das zwischen Client und Server hin- und herschwingt.

Während meines Studiums in den 80er Jahren waren Mainframes/Hosts mit 3270er Terminals angesagt. Das Pendel hing also beim Server.

Als in den 90er Jahren die PCs dank Intel-486 immer leistungsfähiger wurden und durch sinkende Preise weite Verbreitung fanden, schwang das Pendel zur Client-Seite. Anwendungen wurden typischerweise als Fat-Clients gebaut.

Doch dann der Zoo genutzter Windows-Client-Plattformen zur Jahrtausendwende: 95, 98, ME, 2000, NT mit diversen Service-Packs. Die Client-Anwendungen waren sehr empfindlich… Stichwort DLL-Hölle. Das Pendel schwang wieder zurück zum Server, Web-Applikationen im Browser waren angesagt… bis die vielen Seitenladevorgänge wieder die Suche nach etwas Neuem anstießen.

Stellen Sie sich folgende Situation vor: Sie sitzen im Zug und benötigen spontan ein Dokument aus dem zentralen Dokumenten Management System (DMS) Ihres Unternehmens. Bei einem Blick auf Ihre UMTS-Verbindung stellen Sie jedoch fest, dass diese sehr instabil ist und immer wieder zusammenbricht. Dieser Umstand bringt eventuell die Tatsache mit sich, dass Sie während des Downloads des Dokumentes die Verbindung verlieren und den Vorgang, angefangen beim Einwählen in das System bis hin zum Starten des Downloads, erneut durchführen müssen – dies eventuell sogar mehrere Male bis das Dokument zur Verfügung steht.

Basierend auf dieser Ausgangsituation wurde in der fme AG ein Service entwickelt und eingerichtet, der dem Benutzer erlaubt, Dokumente per E-Mail aus dem DMS abzurufen. Dieser Service setzt im Wesentlichen vier Anforderungen voraus:

  • eine Verbindung des E-Mail-Clients zum Mail-Server der Firma
  • ein Postfach, das die Anfragen entgegennimmt
  • ein Dokument muss eindeutig identifiziert werden können
  • Zugriffsrechte auf das benötigte Dokument

Mit dem Documentum D2 Client ist es EMC gelungen, ein hochinnovatives ECM Interface in ihre Produktlinie zu integrieren. Es ist nicht nur sehr benutzerfreundlich und intuitiv, sondern fast schon eine Revolution in der schnellen Bereitstellung von Enterprise Content Management Lösungen durch Konfiguration. Hier spielt der Client die Vorteile gegenüber anderen ECM Clients aus, da die unterschiedlichen Geschäftsanforderungen der Anwender weitgehend mit den von Documentum D2 zur Verfügung gestellten Konfigurationsmöglichkeiten umgesetzt werden können.

Das matrixbasierte Konfigurationsinterface stellt alle elementaren Aspekte der EMC Documentum Plattform bereit, die anschließend dem Endbenutzer in einer modernen browserbasierten Rich Internet Client Anwendung zur Verfügung stehen. Dadurch können erstmals ECM Projekte agil mit starker Einbeziehung des Kunden durchgeführt werden.

After the first blog article about CMIS in general, the second part of the series deals with the new Documentum CMIS product. In addition to DFC and DFS programming interfaces, EMC released the new interface with the Documentum version 6.7 in May this year. Documentum supports full CMIS 1.0 specification, so that you can use CMIS clients to communicate with the Content Server. In the following blog article I will describe the most interesting topics about the new interface.

What is CMIS

Content Management Interoperability Services, short CMIS, is the new buzzword in the ECM world and is also the name for a new ECM standard. CMIS offers a common view and access on ECM repositories in terms of document management. It provides the least common denominator between all vendors which have been involved in the CMIS standardization.
