Comments

  • No version numbers were mentioned, only release code names.
  • I was hoping to here that there would be additional integration effort between D2 and xCP.
  • No mention of any updates to the Content Server or other core components (e.g., DA).
  • No mention of the DA/Webtop update (v6.8) originally scheduled for Q4 2014.  Still hope for this one. (UPDATE:  It’s out!)
  • In general, releases have slipped a quarter (or two).
  • Updates based upon road map discussed at EMC Federal Users’ Group Meeting, Dec 11, 2014)

About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
