One of the better roadmap presentations was given by Aaron J. Aubrecht and Patrick Walsh. Some great useful and candid information. Continue reading ‘Documentum – EMC World 2013 – Momentum – Day 1 – EMC Documentum 7.0 Roadmap’

We wanted to thank Rich Medina from Doculabs for a nice mention of our Complaince Solution/HPI in his post on How to select a Life Sciences Document Managment Solution. We agree with Rich that “the emergence of non-Documentum options as serious candidates to manage controlled documents in the life sciences industry” is something we are seeing more and more. This post will provide some of our thoughts on the Life Sciences Compliance decision process and add to some of Rich’s thoughts along with links to previous relevant posts.

On May 6th through May 9th, EMC World and the smaller component for Documentum/IIG (Momentum) will kick off in Las Vegas again at the Venetian. TSG has attended all the U.S. Momentum’s since the 1996 inaugural event in Miami. Once the agenda is published, we like to post our predictions on what attendees will see compared to previous events.

We might have missed it with the holidays but one of our utility clients alerted us to the news that EMC/Documentum/IIG had recently acquired Trinity Technologies, a former Documentum Consulting Select Services Team. While there is not a ton of information out there on the purchase, this post will discuss the purchase and give our thoughts.

Documentum Discontinues Developer Edition – Documentum to Alfresco Migration – Development Environment and PhilosophyPublished December 18, 2012 Alfresco , D2 , Documentum , Share , Webtop , xCP 5 Comments
With the recent announcement that the Documentum Developer Edition is being discontinued - Bidding Farewell to Developer Edition, we thought it would be a good time to update our previous post from 2010 in regards to development differences between Documentum and Alfresco. This post will compare and contrast development environments and philosophy with both Alfresco and Documentum.
Back in July, we wrote a lessons learned post regarding upgrading from Documentum 6.5 to Documentum 6.7. We have a client that recently completed, by himself, a Documentum upgrade from 6.5 SP3 to 6.7 SP1. While TSG often assists clients in the Documentum upgrade process, some clients are very capable of performing upgrades on their own if they chose a simple approach. This post will share some of the client’s thoughts on the upgrade and how the combination of TSG products as well as good knowledge of his environment made the upgrade relatively painless. The only issue the client had was due to some bad documentation in regards to the xPlore upgrade that will be shared as well.

Documentum’s out of box Webtop allows for its administrative users to manage groups, and the users that belong to each group, while within Webtop’s user management section. As a default, the groups and its users are presented in a datagrid along with individual descriptions, if provided. Sometimes, however, clients will find it useful to expose additional user information on the datagrid (such as an email) to accompany the name and description columns already implemented. Such a task is possible with a few tweaks to the GroupList component and its dependent files.
Back in 2010, we posted an article on the pricing differences between Documentum and Alfresco. With our series this year, this post will update our thoughts. Continue reading ‘Migrating from Documentum to Alfresco – Cost Differences’
At EMC World and in subsequent marketing efforts, Documentum has created quite a buzz around the D2 v4.0 release. Documentum is promoting that D2’s powerful configuration services can deliver a modern client interface while simplifying the application implementation via configuration rather than code. Many Documentum users struggle with any new Documentum release in regards to whether the new product is worth the cost to procure and effort to implement. This blog will be an overview of our initial review efforts for D2 v4.0 functionality as well as provide a link to our initial whitepaper in the downloads section. We also have a video posted in our learning zone for review.
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.
