    Feature of granting the right to
    users/groups for specific entries (role-based), access of it through Single
    Sign On internally, and for remote users through multiple platforms like
    Mobile/PC/Tablet is really helpful in this pandemic or work from anywhere culture
    and it helped us in achieving our business outcome, some features are missing
    like the ease of document printing, of workflow instant update access.

    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

    • RSS Feeds: As a project manager (at the time and still am in a sense) being updated as information is posted helped me to stay on top of progress as it happened. The feeds also allows me to foresee problems before they happened, coming in like Super Woman to save the day...kidding (or am I?).
    • Customizable workspaces: While we've got our video project workflows down to a science, our website projects are a different monster. Because we offer customized websites, each client's needs are different from the next. Vibe's Workspaces reflects this - not only for our projects, but for the users as well. Everyone has a different way of organizing their thoughts and with Vibe no one has to fall in line with cookie cutter layouts...or at least they can start out with one and develop it into their own.
    • My god MOBILE DEVICE Support: I know many many many project collaboration tools have migrated to the mobile device platform - but I found that a lot of times, features are limited. I'm always on a go and can't always access my Surface for a brief look at what's going on. But when you fall in love with a platform, it makes it all the better that it is usable outside the confines of my desktop box.

    • 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.

    Cons

    Micro Focus

    • Having build lot of websites over the years this is one of the most user unfriendly systems I [have] run across. The learning curve is very steep and a lot of stuff is not findable on the internet.
    • The Java used under water has some quirks that makes working with the interface almost undoable. If you make a tree and you change something in that tree it is completely reset to the top level every time so the workflow is broken constantly.
    • There is no copy option in the tool which is strange as 80% of the things you build is the same or similar with minor adjustments like a different color code. Like the previous remark this makes the workflow constantly interrupted.
    • The learning curve for a regular user is also a little too steep. They can do too much and it goes beyond the daily things they need to do with it. To configure Novell Vibe so that the user is protected from doing or seeing too much is a lot of work which means you will have to hire an FTE to manage Novell Vibe alone.
    • Because the end product depends on the use of jsp pages a lot it requires you to hire a specialist with a big salary-tag to build it for you. once it is up and running changes will be very dependant on the guy you hired to build it!

        We would never go back to a spreadsheet to manage our inventory! Since Vibe is essentially free for us there's no reason not to continue using it. We plan on rolling out more processes in other departments for the coming year. The biggest obstacle is change. People don't want to change doing things they have been doing for years. If the workflow saves time people will embrace it.

        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.

        Usability

        Micro Focus

        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

        We are a mixed shop (Microsoft and Novell). We had the entire Novell suite and realized Novell Vibe was included. After meeting with Novell and learning what Vibe had to offer for collaboration and application integration, and since we wouldn't incur have any additional costs, we decided to try it before looking at other solutions. We are happy with our decision.

        • It has improved communication. Before often people who needed to know certain things weren't getting the information, now it is delivered automatically.
        • Made forms more efficient.
