Week in Review: Autonomy Furthers IDOL-ization, Oracle Tries to Woo with ECM 11g

In the mornin' fog,
the evening breeze,
the cool, cool night...

(Soundtrack for this weekly review: John Lee Hooker, Frisco Blues)

Greetings from San Francisco, where there's barely any content management rush (or any rush, for that matter), but the fog, the breeze and the air filled with the freedom-loving spirit of start-ups. Lean agility is something that the big ECM kahunas could learn from start-ups.

Is that an agile move to buy something that creates an even bigger overlap in the already simmering soup of information governance technologies? Yes, I am talking about Autonomy's decision to buy CA Records Manager and CA Message Manager that transpired earlier this week.

The importance of GRC in this day and age is quite clear. What is not clear is why Autonomy would want to "IDOL-ize" this records management and archiving bundle if they already have products for that job (including from previous acquisitions like Interwoven)? "IDOL-ization" is like a rite of passage that most companies acquired by Autonomy go through after they're integrated with the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) platform.

In other news, Oracle released the long-awaited ECM 11g. The biggest sales pitch? Unified content repository and "extreme" scalability. But not everyone is wooed. Some are wondering whether Oracle knows that "WCM & ECM are actually different things." Even some industry analysts are finding it difficult to decipher the actual capabilities and intentions of this monster truck of ECM.
