Its been over six months, since I’ve blogged. I’ve told myself that I have been too busy with my current project, but the reality is that the Documentum technology I have been working with for over the last 12 years has become stale. Its like the 7 year ITch. I still believe in the product, but I also think that the technology is maturing and that there are many other people who have been working as long as I have and who also have their own blogs devoted to Documentum. So what do I write about now?
Well, I have started looking at Alfresco. Its open source enterprise CMS that many of my colleagues have talked about recently. It has quite a few features that put it ahead of Documentum when it comes to what user community has been asking for. I will be blogging in more detail later about my impressions on Alfresco.
I am also planning to write up some best practices from Documentum implementation strategy perspective. Most of it will be non-technical. Time and time again, I have been involved in projects where the challenges are not technical.
A lot of these implementation challenges are not specific to Documentum. I’m looking to become less Documentum centric and more ECM focused as a whole. Hence, the birth of G-Tweets at ecmguru.
