With the Alfresco Content Accelerator available for both Documentum and Alfresco repositories, we have seen a recent surge in modernization and replacement of older interfaces. For this post, we will take a deep-dive into some of the components of older interfaces and contrast those features with modern features from the Alfresco Content Accelerator.
Controlled Printing in Alfresco and Documentum
In recent conversations with many of our manufacturing clients, Controlled Printing has become a frequent topic of conversation.

ECM Interfaces – Moving from Legacy to Modern Interfaces

Both TSG’s High Performance Interface (HPI) and Documentum D2 are driven by extensive configurations made in an administration module. In this post, we will overview the administration components available in HPI and D2 and demo making a search form configuration update in both applications.
Documentum D2 vs. HPI – Working with Multiple Documents
It’s a common user requirement in an ECM system to allow users to act on multiple documents at once. Whether it’s necessary for the business process (ex: a workflow route), or just a time saver (ex: deleting documents), we see requirements around multi-document execution from many clients. For this post, we will look at how both […]
Documentum D2 vs. HPI – Document Annotations
Earlier this year, we announced that we now support integrating D2 with OpenAnnotate to provide document annotation capabilities. For this post, we thought we’d dive deeper into the user interface aspect of the integration and compare the D2 approach with HPI.
Documentum D2 vs. HPI – A Closer Look at Search
Earlier this year, we posted about HPI Search compared to Documentum Webtop and D2 as well as our thoughts around some of the technical issues with D2. For this post, we thought we’d take a closer look at the options for search with D2 as compared to HPI.
