When our library closed for Covid, we had to create systems that allowed for remote holds to be placed on items, which had never been utilized before. none of our staff was in the same area, so collaborating on the media storm we wanted to make took a lot of moving parts. We were able to work together to build a media blitz locally as well as create internal protocols with these tools.

I think Micro Focus Vibe is very well suited for organizations that work in a team collaboration front and have to share documents. I think this really shines in organizations that have a standard set of information that gets lost in the sauce because of the sheer amount of people in an organization. In this case, the Wiki is very helpful in this setting. I wouldn't quite recommend this site for video production houses unless you are patient enough to correlate your needs to the many many features available through Vibe...because it all boils down to patience.
Read full review Pros Web and mobile based functionality. Video editing in a web portal. Creating a platform for media management off-site. Read full review Novell Vibe connects GroupWise mail with Vibe natively which means you can access Vibe from within the mail product. Once forms and workflows are set up, the access structure on who sees what or not is very effective. You can use Novell Vibe as your main intranet with everything from wiki's, blogging and more fully automated and still in synch with your internal organisational structure. After playing with it for a while i found that through jsp it is highly configurable. Read full review Cons Video editing was difficult interface for some staff. AI indexing often got confused on multiple similar files. Less technically inclined staff members had to be helped quite a bit. Read full review The most pressing improvement is in printing. In speaking with Novell techs Vibe was designed as a web tool, no paper necessary. However in the real world our folks love their paper printouts. Vibe utilizes views for various functions. A print view that's easily configured would be an awesome upgrade. Customized in JSP. Vibe is completely customized using JSP. I don't know it. I'm not a programmer. I can work things out, but programming isn't my forte. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It meets our current business needs and provides the scalability we need for future growth. It can be installed on Windows or Linux (Our alpha install was on Linux. Our beta was on Windows. We went with Windows). There are additional features, and application integrations, that we haven't taken advantage as of yet due to the lack of current business needs.

At this moment it still looks you need to do a lot to be able to use it and to be honest that time should be used for work not for configuring a communication tool for the business. Yes I understand that it takes time to learn something to use in the organisation , but with this tool I see the help desk having to answer a lot of questions on how to use it or once someone has done something how to undo it.

The implementation was good, it is the follow up that we need to do ourselves that takes time and effort.

I love the deep functionality of Adobe's suite, but it suffers from being app-driven and localized. This has always hampered me even when I'm not dealing with covid problems. The web functionality of Dalet really set it apart from everything else we used in on-the-go abilities. If we didn't have this, I don't think our Covid policies would have worked and gotten buy-in from the community.

The main alternatives were Sharepoint or creating a custom Drupal install. Sharepoint was too expensive and didn't fit into our Novell environment. The Drupal solution we found was beyond our technical ability.
