Scalable, verifies complex solutions, and the support we receive is good
Pros and Cons
  • "It's a very good solution."
  • "Pricing could be improved and the stability or the performance needs improvement, which is very important."

What is our primary use case?

We verify complex solutions and we implement it on the business process management system.  ECM has extra value for us. We focus on both solutions and they are a little different.  One is only ECM and the second is as a VPN, with ECM as well.

What is most valuable?

It's a very good solution.

What needs improvement?

Pricing could be improved and the stability or the performance needs improvement, which is very important.

For how long have I used the solution?

I was using this solution for a year as a developer and for more than three years as a user.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable, although it could be better.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Open Text ECM is scalable. We have over 200 users, but the organization is now bigger. We use a component to connect ECM to IBM file share by other systems. I am not sure how many users we have who are using it but it may be over 1,000.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support was okay.  We haven't had many issues and everything was resolved through our service agreement.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

When I was an architect, on one of our organizations we used IBM Finance in one part of our business. We decided that it was a good solution. For OpenText, it was a decision which related to using a business process managed system as well.

How was the initial setup?

I was not a part of the initial setup. We have a team in place that handles the setup and deployment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Both OpenText ECM and IBM FileNet share are expensive.

What other advice do I have?

From my perspective, we are working with two solutions. For both IBM FileNet and OpenText ECM, I was the accountant manager and a place where you can store electronic documentation.  The extra value for both solutions is adding workflow managers, similar to business process management systems. You can verify flows and sign off documents. I am not sure if I will continue to use this solution in the future. It depends on the business requirements. If somebody were to ask me which product is better, I think that both are okay and they should verify the business needs then decide which model of pricing or which performance is better for the company. I would recommend this solution, and if I am considering an enterprise solution, both Open Text ECM and IBM are the same, it depends on what the customer's needs are. I would rate Open Text ECM a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Reliable management with an upgraded interface that is easy to set up and configure

What is our primary use case?

We are selling this solution to our clients and we have an implementation team that takes care of the delivery.

Most of the customers use it for information governance, records management, workflow capabilities, and basic document and version control.

Some of our clients also use the AppWorks technology for local app development solutions.

What is most valuable?

Most of our customers are very fond of the upgraded smart user interface. It was lacking in previous versions.

What needs improvement?

The overall architecture is still a bit cumbersome. The architecture needs improvement, as it's complex.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been dealing with OpenText ECM since 2011.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Our customers are quite impressed with the stability. There are no issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not contacted technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward and the configuration is quite easy.

Depending on the use case of the customer, a project can take between three months and maybe 12 months to deploy. It depends on how complex the requirements are of the use case.

If there is an integration that needs to be done, then it can take up to about 12 months.

What about the implementation team?

We have a support team that looks after any issues.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend OpenText ECM. Where we are with GDPR and POPI at the moment, I will definitely recommend this solution.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
