Ahson Ahmad and Norrie Quinn are starting things off this Momentum talking about the Web Services. Not expecting too much new, but you never know. Hopefully some good information on the REST interfaces.
EMC World 2010: Documentum Powering a SOA-Platform for an Operational Military HQ
Here to hear Alexandra talk about a real-world case with SOA and Documentum. SOA has a lot of traction in the military as their dispersed,rapid-response nature really calls for SOA.
EMC World 2010: DFS Real World Examples & Best Practices
This is the third year in a row at this session. Mike (MT) Mohen is a smart guy who really knows what it take to make DFS work in the real world. This stuff is also applicable to EMC’s CMIS implementation as it is built on top of DFS.
Documentum Renewal: Architecting Content Applications
Of all my posts in this series, this is the one that is probably the least needed. I say this because it looks like EMC is some of this now. It does need to be said though, just so EMC know that we still care, and in case I am guessing wrong. The themes for the Architecting of Content Applications is closely related to the Application Separation topic and in many ways, is the complement to the Focus on the Core edition.
I’m going to stay away from some specific feature requests for applications. I would want to do complete run-downs on any app before I did that. I want to be a little more strategic in my advice.
As always, please feel free to add/comment.
Documentum Renewal: Focus on the Core
I just started writing a series on what EMC should do with their Documentum product as part of my Christmas gift to EMC. That part is key…this is a gift from the community because we want Documentum to be better and to stick around.
Why do I say the community? Simple enough…because I hear these things from many users at different installations across multiple verticals. I hear things from clients, partners, competitors, and random people at meetings.
We criticize because we care.
That being said, my first post in this series, on Application Separation, had a great reply from Lee Smith which is worth looking at. Take a moment.
Today we are looking at the Content Server, the engine that makes everything work.
Documentum Renewal: Application Separation
This is the first in a series that I am writing as a Christmas present to EMC. I want them to think about Documentum as a platform for the future and not on just adding on chunks that can be used to drive revenue. Revenue is important, but investment now means revenue in the future.
After all, if they want their vision of SkyNet to come true, they need to get to work.
Why Web Publisher Sucks
I talked recently about how there are many ECM vendors out there that have sub-par applications, like Web Publisher from Documentum, that shouldn’t be required to be an ECM vendor. It isn’t that they aren’t capable of writing good applications. It is that the landscape changes faster than the release cycles for the platform.
EMC World 2009: Deep Dive with Content Services for SharePoint
Erin Samuels is going to be presenting on the other half of the SharePoint offering. Andrew was going to speak, but everyone voted against it due to the potential lawsuit after the abuse he doled out yesterday. He is present and will probably speak despite our best efforts.
EMC World 2009: Documentum ECM 6.5 Architecture Overview
Victor Spivak, chief architect for the platform, is presenting on what is the most popular topic post from last year. Victor is smart and doesn’t mince words. The session was mostly packed 15 minutes before it even started.
Victor is going to breeze through many of the things that haven’t changed in a year, so supplement these notes with last year’s notes. These notes are “more accurate” if they conflict.
EMC World 2009: EMC Documentum CenterStage – The New Standard for Extended Enterprise Collaboration
Didn’t do any sessions during the second slot, everything was standing room only when I got there, at least the ones I card about. Going to take some time to see what David Le Strat has to say about CenterStage. I have a lot of eRoom clients that are anxious to move to CenterStage, when it is ready for them.
EMC World 2009: Documentum Foundation Services (DFS) – Best Practices and Real World Examples
One of my most popular session notes from last year returns for a sequel. Not a bad way to start the conference. Let’s see if Michael (MT) Mohen of EMC Professional Services can deliver on their promise to provide us with lots of new material…
