The Keynote is always the real beginning of the Momentum. Rohit Ghai is the new leader of the renamed Enterprise Content Division (formerly Information Intelligence Group) that includes Documentum. This post will share our thoughts about the keynote.
One of the most heavily attended sessions is always the roadmap presentations. It is a packed room (could have used a bigger room – probably 120 folks with 30 standing) right after lunch and before Rohit’s keynote. This post will present our quick review of the roadmap with some thoughts on how it compares to previous roadmap discussions.
The first session was very well attended (standing room only – about 90 people), presented by Nick King – xCP Product Manager. While the fact that there were few great alternative sessions may have been a factor, to fill the room early in Vegas is fairly impressive. This post will present impressions and thoughts on Documentum xCP.
Next week, May 4th through May 8th, EMC World and the smaller component for Documentum (formerly IIG and now ECD ) Momentum will again be in Las Vegas again at the Venetian. TSG has attended all the U.S. Momentum’s since the 1996 inaugural event in Miami (19 and counting). For those attending, we thought we would provide some thoughts based on our experience. Look here next week for our thoughts throughout the conference. Continue reading ‘Documentum – EMC World 2015 – Momentum – Prepping for the Show’
Back in 2013, Documentum announced the Enterprise Migration Appliance while pushing to get clients to upgrade to 7.x. Renamed the Documentum Enterprise Migration Appliance (DEMA), one of the selling points of the DEMA is a focus on speed. Architected for the “fastest migration possible”, DEMA was constructed to avoid the Documentum API and go directly to the underlying database. This post will discuss the impact of speed and compare approaches of different migration tools. Continue reading ‘Documentum or Alfresco Migration Tools – What about Speed?’
We are excited to announce that our latest HPI code base will include Folder Browsing. This post will discuss why we have added it as well as present a video of the early capabilities.
At EMC World 2014, Rick Devenuti shared 13 minutes into his keynote that only 25% of Documentum customers had upgraded to the Content Server 7.x after over 18 months of 7.x being available. While Rick spun this news to the positive, we had been posting since 2013 that many of our clients were hesitant to upgrade despite at Documentum 6 to Documentum 7 was nothing like the upgrade clients experienced for previous releases.
While Rick Devenuti has recently left IIG (now ECD), for the clients that are still on Documentum Content Server 6.7 (still significantly more than 50%), this post will present our recommendations regarding extended support, content server upgrade as well as other upgrade issues.
