Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is that the documents are kept secure.""The most valuable features of this solution are the security, storage, and document search capability.""Documentum is a highly scalable document management solution because it's built on a solid platform."

More OpenText Documentum Pros →

"Ability to store files of any type.""For SharePoint, I believe the most valuable feature is the customization and allowing you to share and edit files and documents. Being able to share externally and the precise administration of the files in terms of giving permissions and controlling who has access to what is a very good feature.""What I like about SharePoint is that they keep up with a lot of updates, and they bring out new features. I also like that the system is integrated with the Microsoft 365 suite of apps.""No code and low code, scalable, and stable collaboration platform. Straightforward to set up. Its support system is good and offers fast issue resolution."

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

More OpenText Documentum Cons →

"The solution lacks collaboration features.""It has worked very well for me. It seems like they've improved everything. I don't have any cons about it as such, but I don't think they have a talk-to-text, speech-to-text, or speech-to-type. That would be cool for accessibility.""Document management and the ability to easily integrate single sign-on (SSO) are areas for improvement in SharePoint.""Integration needs to be more straightforward, particularly with Azure. SharePoint also needs a more comprehensive introductory course for users."
