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.
One of the most heavily attended sessions is always the roadmap presentations. It is a packed room (could have used a bigger room – probably 120 folks with 30 standing) right after lunch and before Rohit’s keynote. This post will present our quick review of the roadmap with some thoughts on how it compares to previous roadmap discussions.
One of the better roadmap presentations was given by Aaron J. Aubrecht and Patrick Walsh. Some great useful and candid information. Continue reading
Once again TSG is attending EMC World in Las Vegas – May 21-24. For those interested, early discounts are still available at http://www.emcworld.com/momentum.htm. While not much is known at this point in time about the final agenda list (or who the opening/closing acts are), this post will try to take a guess at the dominant themes based on the Momentum Conference Agenda.
We posted an article last week on how Alfresco and SharePoint were Disrupting Documentum. The term disruptor is from the Innovators Dilemma business book and it relates to how difficult it is for one company to continue technology innovation over time and newcomers disrupt the industry. In a phone discussion with one of the responders, we discussed how consulting resources (like ourselves) are assisting in that cycle. This post will discuss how TSG and others Alfresco consulting firms are accelerating the disruption of established ECM tools like FileNet or Documentum.
Unveiled with D6 in 2007, Documentum Foundation Services (DFS) was the service-oriented replacement for the Documentum Foundation Class (DFC) and the Microsoft specific Primary Interop Assembly (PIA) including lingering components of the original Documentum API still embedded within the DFC. With the announcement at EMC World that the new development environment will be a REST based API built on the DFC, Documentum customers might be wondering about the future of DFS. This post will discuss the different web services approaches and present some TSG thoughts on the subject of the DFS as well as the upcoming REST API.
