The ability to have duplicate document names is very useful for content migration. During trouble-shooting you will discover that the logs are all over the place.

What is most valuable?

The ability to have duplicate document names is very useful for content migration. Document id accessible by URL, which makes for easy integration, as does the REST API - thanks to which I was able to create a mobile app in a couple of days.

What needs improvement?

During trouble-shooting you will discover that the logs are all over the place - even on servers you would not expect - and fragmented into dozens of files, yet the detail is excellent. It's Java execution logs, so needs a bit of interpretation skill, though. 

Speaking of Java, the web interface requires JRE and degrades in mysterious ways without it: No warnings or graceful fall-back. The web UI is otherwise VERY awkward and limited in functionality. The Windows client on the other hand is extremely dated but rich in functionality - not pretty, though. Despite the API, there is no vendor support for integration into any other systems except through HTML frames.

How was the initial setup?

Upgrades can be nightmares, partly because there can be architecture and engine changes in minor version increments. Cost is high for what you get.

What about the implementation team?

Installation and licensing is very tricky and requires consultant on site for days or weeks.
