Earlier this month TSG released information on our first Mobile Device Offering (HPI Mobile). We have spent the last few weeks demoing it to our clients and gathering their feedback. Below are some of their thoughts. Please share yours as well. You can view the demo in our Learning Zone.
As part of our effort to develop our mobile offerings for HPI and other applications, we took a detailed look at a number of different frameworks during our TSG sponsored Hack Day. This post will present our findings. Native versus Web Applications One of the major decisions for development was whether to go with a […]
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.
Documentum, Mobile and IMAP – A standard and open source approach for email archiving and mobile access
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.
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 […]
One of our clients has recently implemented HPI for mobile access of approved documents. This post will present the business case as well as a quick look at the client’s particular implementation.
Having already addressed here Why Clients are migrating from Documentum to Alfresco, the major issue most long-time clients have with moving from Documentum to Alfresco is how to take that first step. Legacy Documentum users often have terabytes of documents stored in Documentum and contemplating a move to any platform would be costly and resource […]
TSG has successfully implemented multiple solutions for third party/remote approval for different Documentum customers. In each case, the solution focused on bringing outside approvers into the client’s Documentum environment. Based on discussions with several customers, TSG is beginning to develop a new solution to address several different business issues and take advantage of additional technical […]
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.
In this installment of TSG Labs, we wanted to demonstrate one of our new tools around mobile capture. One of our clients utilized the application as part of an internal hackathon, and it was very well received. Some key points about the application:
Check out this short demo to see how we can use a mobile browser to upload existing and new photos into an ECM repository.
Check out this short demo to see how the OpenContent Form’s Active Form module looks on mobile devices.
One of our more popular posts has been our “Top Tips for Documentum” last posted in 2010. For this post, we will update the tips as well as add some best practices as clients prep for 2012 planning.
Last month, Alfresco updated the 2012 Product Roadmap on the Alfresco Wiki, providing a rough outline of things to come for Alfresco. Aside from the core repository and Share interface, cloud and mobile are obviously a huge focus for this year. The following are some thoughts on some of the more interesting enhancements planned for 2012. […]
Immediately after the IIG / Documentum Keynote on Tuesday morning was the popular IIG / Documentum Vision Strategy and Roadmap presentation given by Aaron Aubrecht. As usual, this event was jammed packed. Slightly different format this year. See our thoughts below and let us know yours.
The Keynote is always the real beginning of the Momentum conference. Rohit Ghai is the new leader of the renamed Enterprise Content Division (formerly Information Intelligence Group) that includes Documentum. This post will share our thoughts about the keynote.
A two hour ECD Roadmap session was the bulk of the second day as the morning was partner meeting and other EMC presentations. This post will present our thoughts on the roadmap.
Attended Jeetu and Rohit presentation this morning. This post will discuss TSG’s thoughts around the roadmap.
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.

Thanks to all subscribers for making this one of our most successful weeks with the blog. We always get lots of feedback that our take on announcements and learning sessions at EMC World/Momentum is our most popular topic. Also, it was great making new friends face to face who opened with “I really like your […]
The keynote is always the most significant event at Momentum. Last year, the significant announcement was EMA – a migration utility – see our write-up on 2014. This year’s presentation did not include any major announcements. Typically the presentation is shared on YouTube – we will add the link once available. Please forgive any typos […]
EMC World – 2011 – Day Three – ECM Strategy and Roadmap – 2011/2012 – Mark Arbour – Head of Product Management – ECM Applications
Attended another roadmap session focused on next 18 months. This post will try to summarize and present TSG thoughts.
One of the more telling presentations of EMC World is the IIG Keynote by Rick Devenuti. Typically the overall theme of the conference is presented with all of the presentations later building or supporting the theme. The biggest announcement this year was EMC’s purchase of Syncplicity but that wasn’t until the end of the keynote. […]
I had a good conversation with a CIO friend of mine last week regarding his recent mobile framework purchasing decision. In purchasing a mobile framework, the CIO and his team decided, given the immaturity of mobile frameworks, to only buy a 3 year subscription. Their thinking was that after three years and more maturity within […]
Due to the success of the insurance event we held in Chicago in May, TSG is partnering with Alfresco to take our presentation on the road. What better place than the “Insurance Capital of the World,” – Hartford, Connecticut! Regardless of industry, TSG has always found that our clients are most successful when they work […]
Provide streamlined management of patient records. Given the recent uptick in the number of hospitals and medical offices looking to do more with their content as they focus on a shift to more team-based care and patient-centric care, OpenContent Patient Records was created. Typical types of content associated with patient records include: Medical Imaging X-rays, […]
With the recent launch of the Claims Content Accelerator and the Policy and Procedure Content Accelerator we would also like to highlight how the interface has been enhanced to provide for an efficient patient records experience. This post will outline some of the new enhancements to the Alfresco Content Accelerator that extend the functionality in […]

Simplifying the User Experience To many document repositories are built […]
TSG is partnering with Alfresco and Claimwire to host a morning event on May 4th entitled Modern Insurance Platforms for Claim Documentation. Compared to our first 15 years of our ECM practice when Life Sciences and other compliance applications like manufacturing and plant operations drove most of the innovation in the ECM space, we have […]
EMC made many significant announcements in 2012 (D2, xCP, D7) that has impacted their user base. Now that the dust has settled, we are making the following predictions as we look forward into 2013:
We met with a client this week that is evaluating the Active Wizard for an electronic forms infrastructure to replace many paper, Word and PDF forms within the organization. The Active Wizard is TSG’s most popular Open Source offering (currently on version 4.0). This post will present the “high priority” requirements along with our thoughts […]
Recently there has been a lot of buzz and marketing surrounding EMC Documentum’s user interface, D2. Many clients have asked for information on the product, and we’ve spent some time doing our own evaluation and comparisons with other products. When weighing the costs and benefits of implementing D2 versus other available products like Webtop, TSG’s […]
Finished off the first day with a presentation on the Vision and Roadmap for Leap. See last year’s post in regards to Project Horizon. Leap is the new name for Project Horizon.
The Keynote continues to be the real beginning of the Momentum conference. Rohit Ghai is the leader of the Enterprise Content Division that includes Documentum. This post will share our thoughts about the keynote.
Earlier this week, we wrote about the Documentum Platform Roadmap. We, along with many other attendees, mistook the first day’s session as the overall roadmap rather than just the Documentum Platform. This post will describe the overall Roadmap and present our thoughts.
In this installment of the Content Accelerator Labs, we wanted to demonstrate a new view for navigating data with thumbnails in a timeline. The view is responsive and functions on either desktop on mobile devices/tablets to unlock a new way efficiently browse content.
TSG is happy to announce the Fall 2019 release, version 3.3, of the OpenContent Management Suite (OCMS)! For this post, we will take a look at some of the new features and notable enhancements included in this release.
Dave Giordano, President and Founder of TSG, presented last week at the Document Strategy form and is a frequent contributor to their content. The following is a re-publish of his latest article covering the role of IAAS for ECM versus SAAS. Read the original post here.
Last month we wrote about our thoughts on Gartner’s ECM Magic Quadrant for ECM. For the Gartner post, we were surprised that Box, while not included in the overall evaluation of ECM vendors, had a considerable note for small to midsized companies as well as a reference in the IBM review as a strength of […]
With the announcement last April that EMC is looking to sell Documentum, we have always predicted that the likely buyer would be private equity. As followers of EMC/Documentum know, EMC sold off Synchplicity to private equity approximately one year ago. For this blog post, we will compare Gartner’s thoughts on Syncplicity in 2015 (when the […]
Last week, TSG conducted a product briefing for some select clients. One of our large Alfresco claim processing clients, currently leveraging the TSG Policy and Claim solution for Alfresco, Documentum or Hadoop, was an active participant and brainstormed on their current and future needs. This post will highlight those conversations and vision as well as […]
On May 6th through May 9th, EMC World and the smaller component for Documentum/IIG (Momentum) will kick off in Las Vegas again at the Venetian. TSG has attended all the U.S. Momentum’s since the 1996 inaugural event in Miami. Once the agenda is published, we like to post our predictions on what attendees will see compared […]
One of the more popular uses of HPI within our Documentum or Alfresco client base is for case management, specifically insurance clients. Some of our previous posts have included an interview with a claims processing user as well as other general posts. We also have multiple videos about insurance implementations and related folders in our learning […]
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 have mentioned on this site multiple times, performance and ease of use in regards to searching is one of the most frequent concerns as it relates to use of Documentum. During our review of D2, we thought it would make an interesting blog post as well as video to compare searching across the […]
DevCon wrapped up at the end of October in sunny San Diego. Conferences are always a great way to get “re-energized”, meeting new users to the Alfresco platform, spending time with existing clients, and getting excited about where the Alfresco platform is headed. This post will discuss the roadmap and other thoughts from the conference.
