We have been unable to determine if solution works on AWS, although current version provides document security
The content management is all about you as you can make the same content for minimal purpose solutions applications.
It has a robust API. We are able to have systems communicate with each other, and do business process automation.
I would say the workflow is pretty good. Also, the flexibility of being able to create custom objects with a lot of domain-specific attributes that we follow.
Users are able to create their own content, and they can manage their own sets of tasks, to work at their own pace and get their jobs done.
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.
It is stable as long as you create the right environment. We have had issues at times, but just because of configuration issues.
One of the things I know is a bit of a challenge for them - because I know that it lives on top of FileNet, so it's not necessarily living on top of a relational database, per se - is that we also are using it as our system of record for our language management and our language definitions. I know that that was a little bit of a challenge, just because of the underlying architecture.
Pricing and Cost Advice
There are lots of components to the product. Make sure before you invest that you know which components you need.
For small scale industries, they allow different options. They can do open source. It is the complexity of the data security that they should think about before they choose.
For the medium scale or large scale, I would recommend FileNet. FileNet is free of licensing expenses, thus good for the money. It is not expensive, but worth for the money, especially for medium scale and large scale industries.
The biggest issue is the cost of the FileNet, because the license cost is very high. If a customer doesn't have good technical guides that are aware of the license calculation, they will pay too much. FileNet's license calculation depends on the processor and number of users. So my advice to a new customer is to be very careful with your calculations before purchasing FileNet.
