    OpenText ECM Roadmap

    In an economy increasingly based on knowledge, Enterprise Content Management often provides ample opportunities for competitive differentiation, elevating it to the strategic level of every enterprise. The nature of an enterprise’s ECM approach is of course continuously effected over time by new acquisitions, market re-alignments, technology and product advances.

    In order to stay ahead of the pack and in order to continue to benefit from your investment, your ECM strategy needs to be critically reviewed from time to time, pinpointing to where it may need adaptation or expansion. This is where our experienced consulting staff can be of valuable assistance to help you gaining that extra competitive edge in your business.

    OpenText Documentum Client Strategy Evaluation

    Many OpenText Documentum customers face the challenge of selecting a suitable web-based, next-generation Documentum application to replace their old Webtop client. Apart from the clients, D2 and xCP, which offer numerous advantages, there are also various alternative clients available. But how can you replace a Webtop client – which may have been highly customized – with the latest technology? Adopting new technologies can be difficult. Moreover, the fact that the currently available standard clients cannot be customized may pose a particular challenge. The Webtop client offers unlimited adaptability, but the new clients take a strongly configurative approach. Although this approach can significantly reduce implementation costs, it also entails limited adaptability, making it potentially unsuitable for certain types of applications.

    Our projects have led us to determine that companies view evaluating client technologies as a big challenge. After all, this evaluation involves taking the requirements of both the IT team and users in other departments equally into account – and these requirements often diverge from one another. Our OpenText Documentum Client Strategy Evaluation consulting service helps you select the right client technology for your company! Get in touch with us! We look forward to taking on your challenge.

    Technical Documentation for Plants and Equipment

    Due to increasing demands of quality and safety standards it is essential for anyone who is planning, constructing, operating or shutting down an industrial plant to maintain reliable and easily comprehensible plant documentation.

    Showcase: Alexa, please open OpenText Documentum!

    »Alexa, please open OpenText Documentum.« With simple oral commands like these, users of OpenText Documentum can now have the digital voice assistant Amazon Alexa open their documents, have her read them aloud and lately even translate them to other languages in real-time. This is possible thanks to a showcase, which the digitalisation experts at fme used to connect a newly written Alexa skill through serverless services such as AWS Lambda and an interface with OpenText Documentum.

    The versatility of AWS & Amazon Alexa has enabled fme to develop a service that can be easily adapted to the specific tasks and expectations of user companies. The developers intentionally only used basic functions so that they could design the usage to be as simple as possible. In this way, users can control OpenText Documentum by voice command, navigate through it, display content, or have content read to them.

    Use Cases
    »Alexa could just as easily explain simple tasks in OpenText Documentum to users. We have already thought about an interactive tutorial as well, in which Alexa could walk users through the complex ECB platform,« says Oponczewski. This would not only simplify the onboarding of new employees, but make it cheaper too.

    In laboratories where gloves are worn and manual control of the mouse and keyboard is difficult, users can, for example, have work instructions from Alexa read out loud.
