It is Jeroen talking. Do I really need to give any other reason for attending? As I am missing the beginning of the partner conference, I need one. I am interested to hear their approach with xDB for this problem. They conceived of it just before the last EMC World, but it wasn’t fully flushed out. Want to see how real this is.
Very excited that I get to see Cornelia Davis speak this year. Last year I had to go catch a train during her presentation so I wasn’t going to miss this year. Conelia used to be part of Documentum (eRoom before that) and is now a Senior Technologist with EMC’s CTO Office. This topic is pretty important because I think that this framework is influencing the Next Generation Content Server (NGIS).
This is a promising session, even if Jeroen had to rename the slide from IIG Architecture to Documentum architecture in front of our eyes. As to why, first, it is Victor’s old session which was also a must attend. Second, Jeroen van Rotterdam, the Chief Architect of the IIG Division, is always a fun and entertaining presenter.
Well, I’m not. Of course I still have a few months before we all reconvene in the meeting of the minds in Vegas. It is time to start getting ready.
First, EMC is looking for feedback on how to make Momentum even better. You can take the survey in just a few minutes. Personally, I want to see more presentations from Clients and the Documentum/IIG Community-at-large.
While I am on the topic, if you are part of the same Momentum crowd, it is time to submit your presentation topics. The deadline is the end of December, so let’s get started!
Last year, some of the better sessions were topics that were submitted by people from outside the EMC ranks. They told real stories where Documentum software was part of the solution and not the point of the solution. It wasn’t about sales, it was about learning about how best to use Documentum so solve problems outside of the demo VMWare image.
Wanted to stop by and see what Jeroen van Rotterdam (XDB genius) and David Louie have cooked-up for XML in Documentum. Been doing a lot of work here and I want to see growth.
On the 17th, I had the fortune of attending a briefing/seminar on X-Hive. It was a series of presentations given by Jeroen van Rotterdam, one of the founders and architects of X-Hive. Jeroen is now the General Manager of XML Solutions for EMC. I was able to learn more about the product and its future within the Content Server.
Recently Mike Herrick asked a question on his blog about what formats should be supported for Form Data and storing Content for archival. James McGovern appears to have misinterpreted the question and asked which of these formats ECM Vendors should support and why they can’t convert between formats out of the box. His question has merit, so I am going to address both.
