It’s been a crazy month here at Simflofy. Last year, Nathan and I decided 2017 was the year to focus on bringing our federated content capabilities to the market. Over the years we had developed bi-directional integrations to Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Electronic File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS), and Document Management System (DMS) platforms to speed up content migrations.
A few years back we started to see that some customers didn’t want to migrate all their content repositories. There were repositories that they needed or wanted to keep active. So instead of just reading content and keywords, we started updating the content as well. This was the start of Simflofy’s virtual repository. We like to call it our VirtualRepo.
Simflofy’s integrated to ten ECM platforms, three EFFS platforms, file systems, and even emails. It can not only provide access to content and keywords from any of these systems but we can add new versions to documents from any of these systems to any of these systems. It has integrations to …
Alfresco, Box, DocuWare, Dropbox, Google Drive, Hadoop, IBM Content Manager, IBM Filenet, Microsoft Sharepoint, Microsoft Sharepoint Online, OpenText Content Server, OpenText Documentum, OpenText LiveLink, Salesforce, Xerox DocuShare, and even FTP and the file system.
These are not “in development” to be released at some future date. This technology is proven. These are production integrations are available to anyone to use today. We’re not stopping there. We plan on adding new connectors every month.
At the end of last year, we started to act on our decision to focus on content nitration. It didn’t take long for our decision to get validated. On January 5th Gartner stated,“Using a combination of robust content strategy and federating technology, organizations are better placed to achieve all four of the above stated goals previously associated with ECM.”
So while others are just starting to take advantage of this new direction, we already have connections to twenty-five different content sources. If you’re ready to take a serious look at content integration, contact us. We’d be happy to share what we’ve already been doing for five years.
