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.

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.
Many clients struggle with providing Documentum access to external users. Often times, access to “full featured” interfaces like D2 or Webtop can overwhelm simple retrieval of limited content. This post will discuss a simple solution developed for one of our clients.
Many of our clients have improved the user experience for their document management systems by implementing our HPI (High Performance Interface) application. And while HPI’s first deployment used the Documentum implementation of OpenContent, its architecture also allows it to run on top of OpenContent for Alfresco.

We had a client last week struggle with a DM_DFC_E_BAD_CLASS when deploying Webtop and our OpenAnnotate product along with our DFC based OpenContent. The issue arises from the CLASSPATH having the file “dfc.jar” added to it. We thought we would document the thoughts here for other client’s reference.
As part of our recent TSG Hack Day, a couple employees set out to prove out how Salesforce could leverage a separate content management system to act as a file store for Salesforce content that had already been through an approval workflow (and therefore was essentially read only to the users). Since Alfresco is an open source CMS, and TSG has had success deploying it in the cloud, it was a natural choice to complement Salesforce.
A key part to any document management system is the ability to version documents. In most cases, the ability to provide minor (1.1 to 1.2), major (1.0 – 2.0) versioning, view version comments, and revert to previous versions is acceptable. However, for controlled documents tied to regulatory mandates, more functionality, specifically in regards to versioning, is required. We’ll review core versioning capabilities covered exposed within Alfresco Share, but also outline additional ways in which to leverage versioning within the Alfresco platform.
Currently many clients import photos into their case management systems by transferring digital images via a USB connection to a computer and then uploading them through a traditional content management client application. This post will discuss how to enable clients to leverage smartphones for a better experience. Continue reading ‘Documentum and Alfresco – Mobile Camera App for Case Management’
TSG has completed our initial development efforts for our High Performance Interface (HPI) Mobile, our specific offering for a variety of devices leveraging HTML5. This post will discuss our approach and rationalization along with links to screencams in our learning zone.
