We had a good conversation yesterday with a long-time and innovative TSG client. The client has a mix of technical and business skills that make him a visionary in a highly regulated industry in regards to Enterprise Content Management. In addition to our normal catch-up discussions about plans for the year and what are we seeing other clients do, we also talked about Hadoop and how it could disrupt traditional Relational Databases (RDBMS). This post will present highlights of that discussion from a business perspective.

In December, we highlighted the Alfresco announcement of the new Activiti BPMN Suite, a new web interface that runs on the Activiti engine that allows users to design workflows on the fly and to share them with different users with different levels of permissions. We sampled the BPMN Suite using a 30 day trial at https://activiti.alfresco.com/. Since then, Alfresco released an early version of the enterprise version of the suite, which we installed on our servers for a test run. The video below highlights the various features of the Activiti BPMN Suite using a sample Publishing Request workflow.
The overview includes:

- Configuring custom forms
- Creating an “app,” which is a way to group workflows and share them with different users and groups
- Completing a workflow in the new interface

The latest release of Alfresco One introduced a range of enhancements to the search capabilities in Alfresco Share. With these enhancements also came a significant upgrade to Alfresco’s back-end indexing and search engine, Solr. This article will showcase some of the new search features that are available in Alfresco 5, as well as provide information for successfully upgrading from previous versions of Alfresco and Solr.
More and more decision makers are choosing to migrate from legacy ECM repositories, such as Documentum, to Alfresco. Whether to gain the advantage of better performance and additional capabilities or as part of an ECM consolidation effort, migrating from a legacy system to Alfresco doesn’t necessarily have to be a complex and difficult process.
We are proud to announce that the TSG Compliance Solution now supports Periodic Reviews and Document Obsoletion. Both of these features are important for managing controlled documents, specifically Policies, Procedures and Forms. This post will provide a short explanation of these feature along with interface examples. Last, this post will also discuss ideas for potential future enhancements.
