In 2012, we have seen an increased number of clients either migrating or evaluating a migration from Documentum to Alfresco. With significant changes in the last two years, we have decided to refresh our postings from 2010 as well as a client interview in 2011 where we presented detail on some of the justification to move from Documentum to Alfresco. This post will present some of the overall reasons why clients are considering moving from Documentum to Alfresco. Continue reading ‘Documentum to Alfresco Migration – Why Now?’
We received an interesting email from a client last week asking us about Documentum maintenance. While we have posted articles on smart ways to manage Documentum maintenance contracts, we were somewhat surprised that the inquiry was in response to a maintenance bill, that without any explanation, increased maintenance to 21% from the usual 18%. The client mentioned that all NEW licenses required a non-negotiable 23% maintenance because “the product is so critical in customer’s environments and this level gives 24 x 7 support”. For 27%, the client will get a named resource assigned to the account. This post will discuss our thoughts and present some best practices on how to best manage Documentum maintenance contracts.

TSG’s open source migration framework, OpenMigrate, offers extensive configuration and customization features. However, with this flexibility comes some complexity. OpenMigrate’s distribution includes nearly 20 sample migration projects, intended to get folks up and running quickly. But sometimes even getting the environment configured properly can be a nuisance.
To address this issue, we’ve created several new tutorial walk-throughs in the TSG Learning Zone. Each takes the user through the process of installing OpenMigrate, modifying the necessary batch and configuration files, and executing a sample migration. We’ve include both Documentum and SharePoint samples.
Are you having trouble getting started with OpenMigrate? Let us know in the comments, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the new year comes exciting new product updates, and the release of TSG’s migration framework, OpenMigrate version 1.7, leads the way. This release of OpenMigrate includes some new features as well as enhancements to existing features, as described after the jump.
