OpenText ECM

Your organisation has to support the type of document and records management needed for this to work. In an organisation that only needs to store documents and maybe share with many different parties, this might not be the best-suited software. In a large organisation with stringent document and records management policies, this suite is well suited. It makes management of documents across business units easy to manage and control.

Progress Sitefinity remains a little heavyweight for sites that require basic text content, or a limited number of pages. However, its flexibility (including the range of different content types if supports) make it a good choice for any organization requiring advanced content management capabilities at an affordable price.

Pros

OpenText ECM

  • Secure storage of billions of documents using precise ACLs to control access across multiple tenants, groups, users, etc. No other system I know of can do this as well for as large of systems. Security can be refined from one person to the entire enterprise OTB.
  • Integration with other EMC/OT solutions. Assuming this is still true post-OT acquisition, Documentum has over a 100 add-ons that integrate with the core solution to expand the solution to include scanning, document processing, forms, email, etc.
  • Searching. xPlore is one of the best FTI tools on the market and it is integrated well with the Documentum solution. Other systems use excellent search tools, Elastic/Lucene/ being good examples of that, but their integration is questionable. Older systems, like WCC, are still using antique search tools OTB and require integration with the newer search tools.

Progress Sitefinity

  • 'Low-code structured content' (dynamic content types) is one of Sitefinity's most powerful features that allows you to structure content according to business needs, while at the same time dampening editorial freedom to ensure accessibility, meta enhancement, SEO and API consumption can be achieved.
  • Sitefinity's content provider model allows us to flexibly (by means of admin interface) easily aggregate or separate content sharing within a multi-site instance.
  • This proofs particularly powerful in emerging situations where there suddenly is a demand for content sharing across countries or regions.
  • Adaptability at its core.
  • While there's never a perfect fit for everything, it allows for easy code customization and extension being a .NET application at heart. Giving it a corporate edge over other custom solutions, whether it is on the development side or deployment side (on premise, IaaS or Azure DevOps Paas). And it has enabled us to put the system to use in its core feature - which is to manage content, where on other occasions we were able to take full advantage of its features such as A/B testing and personalization.

Cons

OpenText ECM

  • WDK framework has been the biggest drawbacks from the application speed point of view, as well as client complexity and not so natural look and feel. Yes, with the latest releases much of these features are improved.
  • EMC is very expensive to buy, own and support, where some products require many dependent Docuemntum products to be installed to work at its best.

Progress Sitefinity

  • We have created a Chinese version of our site. I do not read or speak Chinese; however, I cannot create a role for one of our Chinese employees to be an administrator of the Chinese portion of our site. They must either be an Administrator for the entire site, or an editor for the entire. This creates additional effort / hassle for the team.
  • I have what I believe to be a simple question for the owners of Sitefinity. I wanted to see about using Sitefinity with AWS. Our web agency says that we cannot ask the owners a question, because they will only respond to an "issue". Because we cannot get an answer from Telerik, we are trying to figure this out on our own....and spending a lot of money along the way.
  • It is difficult to find one agency that understands both the front end design capabilities and the back-end technology capability of the platform.

Stability is a key factor as well as its flexibility. Also, any organization that deploys Documentum will have made a significant investment in terms of time and money, so not renewing its commitment can come with a significant cost. That said, the decision to deploy Documentum initially should come only after extensive evaluation, knowing that once deployed it will likely remain the platform of choice.

Mission critical support allows us to have 24/7 support on the software, but while 24/7 also means multiple agents across various continent, Progress provides us with a unifying 'customer success manager' ensuring that all tickets and escalations are handled and communicated in a uniform matter.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText ECM

OpenText is stronger in the management of high volume and secure information. However, SharePoint, while less functional from a document management perspective, provides a much stronger user interface which eases user adoption and the presentation of content. SharePoint also has a significantly larger ecosystem of developers and partners that makes solutions more available.

It is hands down just easier for our customers to use. The interface and the page builder experience is much better than what we have used in the past and has many enterprise features even in the lower price-point

Return on Investment

OpenText ECM

  • Allowed us to move from paper document processing and storage
  • Efficiency and cost savings have yet to be realized
  • Moved from field handling to centralized AP collection
  • The cost to implement and the purchase was extremely high and ROI benefits will take a long time to realize

Progress Sitefinity

  • Sitefinity has reduced the amount of time it takes to edit and publish content, which has enabled us to get information out more quickly.
  • Sitefinity allowed us to establish a consistent and modern brand identity and apply it across multiple websites.
