Over the past few months, TSG has been able to sit in on the DSS Beta program as a read only participant. The DSS beta completed last week, and it’s been valuable to hear how the beta has progressed. From what we’ve heard, the DSS software was successful for the customers participating in the beta. One item to note however, is that DSS will not be generally available in the June/July 2010 time frame as originally thought. A targeted DSS Controlled Release planned for June through September 2010 will precede the generally available release. EMC will be selecting participants for the controlled released program starting this month.
DSS uses Apache Lucene as a full text search engine. For Documentum customers that are looking to leverage Lucene for full text search now, see the following articles:
