Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
I like the security and also the configuration. It is easy to configure and most of our business use cases have everything just with the configuration itself.
The application, in terms of durability, has been able to withstand the usage, given that it was installed in 2003 and it's still working.
One of the most valuable features is FileNet's ability to capture things from the stack, from e-mail, to scanning of Excel and Word. FileNet can also convert many types of files to PDFs very easily.
FileNet has the capabilities to meet compliance and regulatory requirements. It is very secure.
FileNet is very user-friendly... We have business users using and it is quite friendly for them.
The most valuable feature is access control.
It also helps with compliance and governance issues because it's a datastore that is not modifiable, and you can guarantee that. You cannot guarantee that with a folder-based file structure, where multiple people have access.
[The most valuable features are] scalability and ease of use. These features are important because the customer where we have deployed it has millions of documents... And over the last five years, the volume of the documents has been increasing. It's handling all of them and without any errors.
Integration within the solution is very good.
You can move workloads in between sub-servers so that you don't overload a portion of the server.
It's a very scalable solution and the performance is pretty good. The scalability, in my opinion, is the biggest advantage.
Oracle integrates well with other products to cover Big Data.
A great solution for storing and searching large volumes of documents with easy access.
The WebCenter Content is its most valuable feature. After we update a document in WebCenter Content, it can be update automatically in our intranet.
Developers like us have an upgraded interface. That interface does not work in the process that we have today. It hangs and is not user-friendly.
Our client feels FileNet does not provide them with content searchability. They feel it's cumbersome. They're only using Metadata. If the Metadata is not well-populated, it becomes a problem to retrieve a document.
However, the configuration does take a long time. Every company needs its own configuration design. It depends on how many applications are connecting to FileNet. It can take a long time, depending on the application count.
There is some confusion with FileNet workflow. It's not really going into the next level. They are probably replacing it with BPM's workflow. So there's an issue of clarity, the vision for going forward.
I would like to see it able to capture NLP in an advanced search. It would also be good if it could capture images and segregate them in categories within a span of seconds.
The FileNet API seems like it is very difficult and not transparent.
The area of migrations to new versions must be made easier. It's quite good that they have now begun to improve the API area, to modernize the interfaces, but there's always a very big investment involved in migrating from one version to another. That prohibits rolling out new functionalities to customers. It's not so easy.... In that area, they really must improve.
There is room for improvement in the file management. It's very complex.
The solution should be offered in Persian. Right now, our version is in English, and there's a bit of a language barrier between the users and the product.
The speed of the backup should be enhanced.
There are many document management systems that offer pretty much the same functionalities but at a lower price. The product as such is pretty good. However, the pricing is not comparable. They need to adjust their pricing to be more competitive on the market.
This solution needs to support translation into the Arabic language.
Does not seem to be totally compatible with Windows 10 as of our current version.
I would like them to add more Web 2.0 features.
Its functions need more stability.
Pricing and Cost Advice
FileNet is quite expensive, although Documentum is expensive too.
Licensing costs depend on the size of the storage.
The cost is about $40,000, plus yearly maintenance.
The licensing cost of FileNet is comparable.
When it comes to pricing, IBM needs to make an effort to improve the cost. That's the main issue regarding use of FinalNet in Columbia.
Yearly, we pay for the maintenance, which is $20,000.
The solution saves time and money. It helps us to be able to accomplish the goals of our business, as opposed to being tangled in the weeds of what we could do.
It has reduced operating costs by reducing the amount of manual work needed.
The price of this solution is considered to be high; however, when speaking with Oracle, it is possible to get discounts of up to sixty percent.
The price needs to be lowered.
