IBM FileNet Re-Emerges

For years now, the term ‘legacy’ ECM system has been synonymous with the word FileNet, the firm purchased by IBM back in 2006. It’s a product set with a long history and was, at one time, the most significant player in the market with Documentum (despite better name recognition) always lagging in second place. FileNet …

Crossing the Abbyy Road

RPA vendors want to automate more sophisticated processes, BPM vendors wish to capture more regular transactions. Content management firms want to gain more insight into the content they store; analytics vendors want to manage their content more carefully. The lines are starting to blur, and frankly, it’s about time. But turning such huge and well-established technology silos is no easy undertaking, so patience is unfortunately still required.

Dropbox Launches Large File Transfer

Large File Transfers (LFT’s), in other words, files over 40MB have long been a challenge. Most systems max out below that level and either reject the move or default to some kind of folder link. Specialist vendors such as WeTransfer and FileMail have provided systems to meet the need. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) also a …
