TSG attended the Alfresco Summit on November 12-15 as a Silver Sponsor. This event was formerly known as Alfresco DevCon but has evolved to focus on not just development, but also the experience for end users as well as solutions built on Alfresco. This post will present some of our thoughts on the conference and other Alfresco announcements. Continue reading ‘Alfresco 2013 Summit – Recap’
Many experienced Documentum customers have attempted to leverage the Google appliance as an alternative to Documentum Search or as part of an Enterprise Search effort.

Many times, TSG will get involved with clients that have strong developers on staff that come from a database development background and are unfamiliar with the capabilities of Enterprise Content Management (ECM). As database systems expand from just the data to add related documents, the database paradigm approach will typically lead to database entries with file pointers to point/store the related documents. This post will address the shortcomings of a database approach by sharing how leverage of an ECM system simplifies and shortens the development process as document related capabilities are added to the system.

Forget scanning to your desktop or file server, HPI has a new integration with Dynamsoft’s Image Capture Suite and OCR products. Now you can scan single documents directly into your Alfresco or Documentum repository. This capability moves the point of document capture closer to the point of document creation and entry into a business process. Letters, signed documents, and supporting paper documents can now be captured much faster and easier.
Having already addressed here Why Clients are migrating from Documentum to Alfresco, the major issue most long-time clients have with moving from Documentum to Alfresco is how to take that first step. Legacy Documentum users often have terabytes of documents stored in Documentum and contemplating a move to any platform would be costly and resource intensive. One innovative approach clients are considering is to introduce Alfresco for new initiatives with integration to legacy Documentum instances to gradually reduce the reliance on Documentum. This post will discuss how one client is considering leveraging Alfresco for mobile access and discuss the architecture components of that approach.
