Micro Focus Vibe

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.

Information control. Information management. Not good at collaboration or collaborative work on documents. Administration is complex, and requires highly specialized teams to do it.

Pros

Micro Focus Vibe

  • 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.

  • Searching
  • Create Metadata to help with searching
  • Control versioning you can see multiple versions of a document and can revert back to it if necessary.
  • Document management, it has built in house keeping features.
  • One source of the truth.

Cons

Micro Focus Vibe

  • 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.

  • Flow management.
  • Inefficiency in BD.
  • Electronic signatures.

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.

OpenText Enterprise Content Management is reliable and it has a friendly user interface. It can replace all legacy document repositories. With the integrations with SAP, it gives non-Sap users visibility into documents that are critical for making key decisions.

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.

It is used for the basics of the tool, without taking advantage of the options it has.

The support is not very efficient, either by a partner or directly from Opentext. The support for Latin America is very limited by the language, and they do not have specialized support that supports the Spanish language.

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

Alternatives Considered

Micro Focus Vibe

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.
