Alfresco CTO: Intelligent, Adaptable, Amazing Tech Ahead

2014-10-April-John-Newton.jpg

John Newton has a vision of what technology and enterprise collaboration will look like in 2024. 

Trust these future goggles. They've got plenty of experience. Newton is the CTO and chairman of Alfresco, an open source enterprise content management provider. But back in 1990, he co-founded, designed and led the development of Documentum, which was later acquired by EMC.

"Assuming that it continues on more or less the pace it has so far, and there’s no reason not to think that, there is some amazing stuff that’s possible," Newton told CMSWire in a phone interview from the AIIM Conference this month, where he spoke. "Extremely high resolution displays. Virtual reality types of devices. New ways of inputting into computers. A lot of wearable technology that will go beyond the consumer stuff and actually make systems more usable for us."

Will EMC Dump Documentum?

Alan Pelz-Sharpe thinks it's time for EMC to get rid of Documentum.

The 451 Research Director has published a well-sourced six page paper making his case, and it’s a good one -- namely, that EMC and EMC IIG (the group that owns Documentum) make neither beautiful music nor buckets of cash working together.

In the paper. he writes:

At 451 Research, we believe it's time for EMC to divorce itself of IIG, a product division that never really fit into EMC as a whole, and has continued to disappoint CEO Joe Tucci. There are two very good companies here, the storage and cloud giant EMC, and the business application wannabe IIG, aka Documentum. Both groups are trying to do the right thing, but find themselves pulling in different directions."

Open Source + EMC Documentum + Cloud = You Tell Us

Shhh ... don’t tell, but the news is out on the web: EMC has released a new Documentum developer edition and it includes open source components. Not just that, but anyone -- not just EMC customers -- can download it for free.

Though it was announced last month in a blog post on EMC's community developer network page, we have yet to see a press release or single news article about it, which is surprising for such a big deal.

You would think EMC would want people to know.

Polished! Documentum's Golden Crown is Shining

Golden crown.jpg

EMC Documentum has worn a crown of gold in the enterprise content management (ECM) world for quite a long time. In fact, it’s hard to remember a year (if there was one) when analysts at Gartner, Ovum and Forrester didn’t all call the company a leader.

And a leader, it should be noted, is different from a strong performer, a challenger, a contender and a visionary, all terms the analysts apply to levels below "leader." A leader is a product that can already do it all (or at least the important parts) and that analysts recommend, almost without hesitation — a product like EMC Documentum.

Big Data Bits: SAP HANA Propositions IBM Watson + 3 Hookups + 1 OffshootNot everyone’s hot and bothered by IBM Watson, but SAP’s HANA sure is.

The love child of SAP Chairman Hasso Plattner has taken to the company blog to politely coax IBM Ginni Rometty’s Jeopardy-winning cog (this is the term that IBM is beginning to use for cognitive technology) into a relationship.

“Isn't it a no brainer to get Watson to work on HANA?” writes Vijay Vijayasankar, Global Vice President at SAP Labs.
