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.
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.
We had an interesting call with a client yesterday that is looking for content management capabilities for BIMserver. BIMserver (www.bimserver.org) is an opensource Building Information Modelserver. In this case, the BIMserver already integrates with Alfresco . Unfortunately an internal company mandate specifies that Documentum be used for long-term record retention. Unfortunately we are seeing this scenario often as the political pressure to justify a previous large Documentum purchase will take precedent over a current technology decision. This post will discuss a hybrid approach along with other alternatives.
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.
We have posted recently about a variety of email solutions including leveraging IMAP as well as issues with drag and drop functionality leveraging MyDocumentum for Outlook or Webtop. This post will review the use of the “forward” button to provide an email client neutral approach for ingesting emails into Documentum.

As we discussed in a previous post on mobile and third party approval, TSG is currently in the development process for our mobile approval interface for the Active Wizard. One of the early deliverables of the effort is a standalone demonstration of inbox/approve/reject functionality working on a variety of mobile platforms. A screencam of the overall soloution is located in our Learning Zone. This post will provide a written background on the solution as well as a link for you to try the application yourself.
Thanks to all the attendees (a record) at our TSG Client Briefing last week at the University of Chicago Gleacher center. Many of the attendees mentioned it was the best one yet. This post will share some of the discussions.

TSG’s work with the New York Philharmonic Digital Archives was recently named 2012 Alfresco Implementation of the Year. We wanted to thank the team at the NY Philharmonic for giving TSG the opportunity to work with them and providing the vision of what the Digital Archives is today. The digital archives provides a perfect example of how open source technologies can be leveraged to create a robust and scalable enterprise solution. Using OpenMigrate for high volume content ingestion, OpenAnnotate for face tagging, Solr for faceted search, with Alfresco as the central repository make up the key architectural components driving its success. We look forward to continue working with the New York Philharmonic as they innovate and expand the digital archives.

TSG has started initial research and development on an alternative approach for email archiving and mobile access with Documentum, based on a client project that utilized Alfresco IMAP. In prepping for our client briefing next week, we thought we would share our initial thoughts on an IMAP and Documentum approach.
