Thanks to all of you that again made our Momentum EMC World our most successful posting days. This year was an interesting time. It really made our day to get feedback that many of you look forward to the summaries as well as how the blogs throughout the year have helped with Documentum-related decisions throughout the year. This post will try to wrap-up and summarize all the other postings, as well as express TSG’s opinion on the event.

Interesting topic for 8:30 a.m. meeting after an open Vegas Bar (and a pretty good party – kudos to IIG).
Migrations and Upgrades: Introducing EMA, the EMC Migration Appliance. With Chris Dyde and Mike Mohen. This post will present our thoughts on the presentation.
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.

Before we get started, we’d like to introduce a new category on the blog – TSG Labs. We’re planning on using it to introduce experimental and upcoming features of our products in order to get feedback from our readers and clients. In this inaugural installment, we take a look at how we could skip the step of creating and editing documents in Microsoft Word, remove the need for any plugins to download and import documents, and streamline the entire process by creating and editing documents directly within HPI.

When we first meet with clients who are interested in using OpenMigrate to meet a migration need, they typically know that they need to move documents from one system to another, but many times they haven’t yet identified all of the specific migration requirements. Determining and discussing this information as early as possible is helpful to minimize the migration effort and ensure that the documents are migrated in a way that makes them useable and accessible to the appropriate users.
As many Documentum customers know, the end of 2012 saw the initial official release of Documentum D7, something that was announced back at EMC World in May. We have recently been evaluating the release to determine what’s new, what’s changed, and what the potential impacts could be for our clients as they plan for the future. We will be posting to the blog over the next weeks as we proceed through our evaluations and test upgrade paths so be sure to stay tuned, but we wanted to share some initial thoughts as well.
The dominant theme at EMC World and Momentum Europe was a focus on solutions. Previous themes, particularly when announcing the discontinuation of solutions (ex: DCM, Marketing Asset Manager…), were focused on ECM infrastructure. In the past, both Documentum and Alfresco have focused being an infrastructure component that can be configured stand-alone or integrated into a variety of business solutions (ex: SAP) to provide content management. This post will examine the shift from infrastructure to solutions for the two companies, as well as present TSG’s goals with solutions for 2013.
