Cons
The biggest issue for us is the price of the product.It needs a better UI and it should also be cloud-ready. The UI has not changed in years.It should provide more tools to help clients upgrade solutions based on Webtop.

I would like to see seamless application integration.I think it's already getting away from Java applets. A lot of our users struggle with keeping up to date with Java versioning, so a lot of the functions they're doing, like printing, emailing, and even some of the viewing, they're struggling with.I would recommend not going with ECM 8 and going with FileNet instead. It seems like that is the future of the lower-volume repository. It seems like they are moving away from ECM 8.5 so I think we're going to have some challenges coming up, getting off of that technology.
