OpenKM 3: Better OSS Document Management

OpenKM 3 has just lauched, with a range of new features including workflow management, better format support, and better handling of multimedia. The new version is available to download either as a free community version or as a licensed, supported version.

OpenKM delivers browser-based document management, and is built off a low load infrastructure incorporating JBoss and Java (and GWT — Google Web Toolkit).

Atlas 4.0 Unites Management on eDiscovery and Data Retention


PSS Systems has announced a new release of its Atlas Suite, aiming to cut down on unnecessary legal risks as well as discovery and data management costs. It has a familiar ring to many of the latest e-discovery releases and announcements.

Understandably, we've been a little wary in our evaluations of iDatix here at CMSWire. In February when we first reviewed them, we mentioned their lack of brand recognition as a contrast to the 451 Group's claim that iDatix had market disruption potential. Then in July, we questioned whether or not their iLink technology would be enough to garner global attention.

But then finally, in August, things were looking up for the young Business Automation software company when KMWorld called their content management system iSynergy a trend setter for 2008.

Today, with iDatix's recent release of their totally revamped and upgraded version of iSynergy (iSynergy 3.9), it looks like they're doing all they can to keep riding the wave of good fortune.
