Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is easy to use.""The templates are a valuable feature. You can make templates. There is a space inside where you can create pages. When you use the template, the page auto-generates text and images. You do not have to think about the structure of your page as well, which I think is a very good thing for a user. Because usually when you're in front of a blank page, it can be a bit dreadful to know where to start.""What I like the most is the Wiki software that comes with Atlassian Confluence.""There is a good library of templates for a wide range of needs.""The most valuable features is its design documentation abilities.""The initial setup is very easy.""With respect to our experiences with Confluence, we haven't had any issues.""The solution is stable."

"The most valuable features of this solution are the security, storage, and document search capability.""The most valuable feature is that the documents are kept secure.""Documentum is a highly scalable document management solution because it's built on a solid platform."

Cons
"Atlassian Confluence could improve how information is shared outside our company. We had some negative experiences with the rights we have with our information when sharing it within Atlassian Confluence and with other teams outside the company. It's due to the limitations on the rights we have on the export capabilities. We don't have sufficient rights to do so.""The scalability for larger companies could be improved.""An area for improvement would be the intuitiveness of using the features, especially if you want to customize.""The product is considered expensive.""Some macros can be technical, and they are better managed on the Confluence cloud rather than on-premises. For example, when you add an image on the cloud, you can resize it just by using the mouse. This is not the case on-premises yet. You have to write pixels of the size of the image sometimes. Some of the very old macros are still there, and some of them are technical. It can be hard for users if they are not from an IT background to understand how to use them quickly.""It would be interesting if they had graphical templates that allowed typical agile ceremonies to be documented better.""It would be good if they can continue working towards making documentation and editing as quick and easy as possible. It has got a lot of capability, but I don't know how to use it. I don't find some of the things that intuitive. Sometimes, it doesn't seem obvious to me how to use it, but it is like learning any new tool. You actually need to get trained on the tool to get maximum out of it.""I'd like to see some improved reporting on usage."

"It's difficult to manage and customize Documentum.""The user interface can be improved.""An area that needs to improve is how to reduce storage space on the AWS site."
