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.

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.

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.
TSG recently responded to a client’s questions regarding using Alfresco versus Documentum or other solutions for Life Sciences. The questions were the next step after a demonstration of Alfresco and TSG solutions for controlled documents. The demonstrations are available in the learning zone.
This post will share those questions and responses while preserving the client’s confidentially.

As mentioned in our previous post about managing controlled documents in Alfresco, Active Wizard 5.0 utilizes the Activiti BPM platform for dynamic workflow processes. If you’re curious about how dynamic workflow works in the Active Wizard, check out this post from earlier this year, which we wrote after we had posted our initial thoughts about Activiti. In this post, we will review how Dynamic workflow has worked in the Active Wizard in the past, and contrast that to how we’re using Activiti in Active Wizard 5.0.

TSG has over 15 years experience building systems to manage controlled documents. Most of these systems have been built on top of Documentum for clients in various industries including Pharmaceuticals, Nuclear Energy, Manufacturing and others. When talking to these clients about their thoughts on moving from Documentum to Alfresco, the inevitable conversation comes up: “How do we manage our controlled documents?”
One of our products, Active Wizard, is an electronic forms and workflow product that is well suited for controlled document systems. With the help of a TSG client in the pharmaceutical industry, version 5.0 of Active Wizard will support both Alfresco and Documentum repositories.
