Decoupling ECM Features
I have some questions for Apoorv that I would love to see him respond to in his next blog entry:
- Instead of CMS product’s workflow, It should be possible to use a third party BPM engine
Should CMS should control BPM or BPM should control ECM? Doesn't this require that both ECM and BPM products support industry standards to allow them to be embedded? If so, whom do you feel is best positioned to kick off the creation of such standards?
- The CMS should be able to integrate with CVS or VSS for version management
Anything wrong with Subversion or ClearCase? Is this integration dynamic where all historical content is pulled from the version control system in real-time or simply check-in, check-out?
- Instead of using the portal product’s built-in document management portlet, it should be able to integrate with an enterprise DMS
What's wrong with the way portal products integrate with CMS products? If the portal has its own security model separate and distinct from CMS, how should they work together?
