ECM Architecture – Cloud Platform – System of Engagement

Posted by

We are considering using the Cloud platform for the System of Engagement for the ECM system. The System of Record would be on-Premise. Is anyone else using or considering a similar architecture?

Did exactly that for a major company overseas. SP Online/O365 and FileNet on prem.

 

You should bid on the RFP!

LOL!

 

One architecture to consider is to leverage Box as the system of engagement and FileNet as the system of record. IBM and Box has taken care of a seamless integration between these two products which helps in content collaboration and sharing from within and outside firewalls.

What about Office 365, as the System of Engagement?

I strongly believe in Office 365 being an excellent choice for a system of engagement as long as you implement a proper governance alongside of it. Such a governance should not only cover how you will cope with the speed of change that Microsoft puts into Office 365 but also the relationship with your system of record. And if these 2 systems are from a different brand, you should also cover how the two are connected. To illustrate what is possible, have a look at 4SPA4D | AIIM Buyers’ Guide. It is a product we developed for that specific usecase and is aimed at customers that use bothe SharePoint/Office 365 and Documentum. Regardsless of it being technically suitable in your case, the functionality is something to take into account when selecting a system of engagement.

Here’s a reference for O365 as part of a hybrid solution (with SharePoint):
