Virtual Momentum Lisbon 2010 and Midwest Documentum User Group

One last reminder – Midwest Documentum User Group (MWDUG) is coming up this Friday, October 29th, in downtown Chicago – presentations will include American Electric Power, United Airlines, Documentum Roadmap as well as others.  There are still spots open if you are interested in attending.

As we were talking to users outside of the Chicago area about MWDUG, it isn’t hard to see that travel is still being restricted during the downturn (or post-downturn).  Obviously, not many of us could travel to Lisbon, Portugal for Momentum 2010 this month.   One thing unique this year is that
EMC/Documentum has opened up the ability to attend Momentum virtually.  Slide decks and presentations will be posted next week and available virtually for only $200 – signup is here – Virtual Momentum.

For the client, this turned out to be a critical missing component. This post will discuss the client’s need for others considering evaluating MyDocumentum for SharePoint.
