In some previous posts we discussed our addition of the Veeva Source and Target to our OpenMigrate platform. As we were becoming familiar with the Veeva API for the purposes of migration, we started to think what else could be integrated with a Veeva implementation. It is rare that an ECM system is completely standing […]
Recently TSG worked with an Alfresco client that had unique requirements around document and folder security. In addition to traditional ACL security, the client needed the ability to tag documents with metadata that would deny users access to content unless they were members of a particular group. This post will focus on our approach for […]
The first step in supporting all of the TSG products on Hadoop is building our OpenContent REST Web Services layer to access Hadoop in the same manner we access Documentum, Alfresco and other content management systems. This post will present our plans and timelines for OpenContent along with associated TSG solutions.
To continue our series of posts highlighting common design patterns that we see in many Alfresco implementations (see previous posts on Auto-Filing and Data List-Drive Value Assistance, this post will focus on another Alfresco module package (AMP) that TSG has developed that provides a configurable way to automatically number content with a unique numbering sequence upon creation.
Although content modeling in Alfresco is very flexible and configurable, one of the issues that we run into when setting up repositories for clients is the lack of the ability for business users to manage value assistance lists. Value assistance is a term that we use to describe the lists of options that show up […]
TSG has several clients using Documentum as a repository and a custom front end application for consumption of the records or renditions of records. In most cases there is a mechanism in place such as SCS (Site Caching Services) or TSG’s OpenMigrate PUMA (See CIS Case Study for more details). While a typical Documentum application (ex: […]
Documentum Transformation Services (DTS) – Alternative Approaches with Adobe LiveCycle and OpenOffice
Since the very first Momentum (1996 in a very windy Miami), the Documentum user community has pushed for a more reliable means to convert mostly Microsoft office documents into PDF. Back then, during a wrap-up luncheon, the feedback on AutoRender ( a previous incarnation of DTS) was anything but positive. Similar to some complaints today, […]
The last post discussed the results of an HPI Lucene Search test compared to a Webtop FAST Search as part of a proof of concept for a client looking to provide a consumer interface. As we have often mentioned on this forum, we continually see clients looking for a better search interface than Webtop, as […]
As mentioned in a previous article, many clients are moving to away from FAST in preparation for the eventual release of Documentum Search Services (DSS) slated for release in June that leverages the open source product, Apache Lucene. This post will share the results from one client that executed a proof of concept test to […]
