Documentum 2013-2014 Product Roadmap

Here are some notes I quickly jotted down during several of the sessions this past  week at DevCon 2013 regarding Documentum’s future releases. Much of this information went by very quickly, and some of it was included in sessions that I did not attend.  Therefore, I will probably revised/amend it in the coming weeks as I have a chance to review the material from those missed sessions.
