Building upon our OpenAnnotate-ADF integration post from last week, TSG has added OpenRedact as an additional viewer option to Alfresco’s Application Development Framework. OpenRedact is a companion product to OpenAnnotate and is a browser based tool that offers manual and suggestion based redaction. This post will describe the additional features that OpenRedact brings to Alfresco […]

We have recently been working with multiple clients that have streamlined their review and approval process to increase throughput and decrease turnaround time. One key process improvement is allowing for quick and simple annotations during the review cycle. TSG’s OpenAnnotate provides for quick, browser based annotations and now includes Workshare Compare integration as well. This post […]

As the cost of storage, memory and CPU continues to move toward almost free, we are seeing the clients looking to move away from traditional legacy ECM tools for the newer architecture and cost savings […]
As we have discussed in our Hadoop Series, more and more companies are considering Hadoop for storage and management of documents and files. Just like our ECM clients, companies storing documents or scanned files in Hadoop want to provide PDF renditions of documents for easy viewing and other PDF capabilities. This post will discuss how […]

The client has a mix of technical and business skills that make him a visionary in a highly regulated industry in regards to Enterprise Content Management. In addition to our normal catch-up discussions about plans for the year and what are we seeing […]
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.
As we have talked to clients about Hadoop with HBase for ECM, too often we hear “but isn’t that just for big data?” This post will try to explain the benefits of Hadoop’s big data capabilities and data model in an ECM context compared to traditional database systems.
