Easy IBM Domino Migrations

Web-based document management vendor DLI.tools has announced the release of Docova ECM v3. The latest Docova release has been designed to improve IBM Domino Document Manager migrations, provide a web platform for Lotus Notes applications and improve findability and access to information in context of a worker’s role within the organization.

Among the enhanced features and functions included in Docova are restricting the printing of documents, cross linking, folder filtering, strict version controls and document compare.

One of the shortcomings with most enterprise CMS solutions is the ability to cross link documents either manually or automatically. Docova now supports this and additionally provides a related links section to bring in other content such as website URLs.

Other functionality includes multi-server and offline use as well as improvements to the management of a multi-server environment.

As of today, Docova customers can upgrade to v3 via the support portal

Integrating Dynamics With Office 365

It also provides further automation and customization features such as sending batches of reports by email, or filing documents using barcode recognition, are available via upgrades to the Zetadocs Essentials and Zetadocs Plus editions.

Zetadocs Express for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is available to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 users with an active Business Ready Enhancement Plan via Microsoft's PartnerSource and CustomerSource portals. 

Gartner, Enterprise CMS Vendors

If you’re interested in who’s who in the enterprise content management space, Gartner published its 2011 Magic Quadrant for the Enterprise Content Management industry.

The report confirms what many suspect: The content management landscape is changing quickly, and changing dramatically.

Learning Opportunities

While the vendors that made it into the Leaders Quadrant remain the same as last year -- in alphabetical order EMC, Hyland, IBM, Microsoft, OpenText and Oracle -- the dynamics that are driving the market are not the same.

PSIGEN, Nintex Partner

PSIGEN has announced a newcollaboration with workflow vendor Nintex to provide a paperto workflow solution for SharePoint.

In addition to the advancedscanning and capture features within PSI:Capture, the workflowsystem within Nintex products enables users to more effectivelyorganize, manage and track their business documents and processes.

ShareMethods Upgrades Document Sharing

ShareMethods has been busy, too, and this week announced the availability of an upgrade of its cloud-based service for document sharing.

The new upgrade comes with a range of dynamic features from open and social sharing to secure and private sharing.

The new sharing model for its document management service is enterprise-ready and integrated with Adobe EchoSign, Oracle CRM OnDemand and salesforce.com.

To more easily share files and collaborate with external team members, a method is needed to help create a simple webpage to view and potentially upload files.

To accomplish this, ShareMethods built a feature to allow users to share a specific content category with the public or securely with selected users (username/password required).
