IBM FileNet manager is a basic tool required to manage content. It helps to organize all of the content, too in one place. it is secure hence your data is protected, also it keeps the organizing processes very clean for users.
  • Store the data securely.
  • Organize the content for users.
  • Can find the data easily.
  • Pricing
  • UI could be made better.
It is efficient for managing content. We are generally using it for the same purpose. Moreover, it allows me to store content securely, which is again a great feature. one can access the content whenever he wants.

It is being used as an electronic filing system for legacy documents. It is used in support of claims departments (invoices and claims forms) and allows for immediate access to legacy content.
  • Security.
  • Classification.
  • Organization.
  • Good encryption.
  • Difficult upgrade path.
  • Unfriendly UI.
  • Like much of IBM estate, different parts don't work together great.
FileNet Content Manager is well suited for content management of documents. We use it for documents that are required to be stored but less likely to be regularly accessed and generally don't make any changes to it. I feel that if we had to tamper under the hood more that it would be a less useful tool.
It's a great tool for our legacy system however the implementation, management time and lack of a niche provided by IBM makes it a difficult tool to recommend in a fast-paced market.

IBM FileNet manager is a great platform for managing content. It helps my customers to organize all of their content, especially sensitive content like business contracts in one place. It also make it easy for them to digitize, summarize and organize all the content. It is a very important factor of the digital transformation journey.
  • Organize content
  • Digitize Content
  • Makes it easy to find the content
  • User Interface could be better
  • Pricing could be better
  • Product training and documentation
IBM FileNet is best used for Contract Management, designing and automating workflows. We have developed a solution for banks on top of FileNet for trade finance business for banks. This helps banks to automate trade finance process which is a very important process for the bank.

It is being used, primarily, as an electronic file cabinet for legacy documents. It is used in support of administrative departments (HR & procurement) and allows for immediate access to legacy content.
  • Encryption at rest
  • Taxonomy
  • Security
  • Difficult to upgrade
  • Sometimes hard to get modules to work together
  • Content Navigator is better than the old Workplace, but it is also looking dated.
It is well suited when there is a dedicated set of developers to support it. While configuration can be straightforward, it does require specialized knowledge. Extending the tool absolutely requires developers. Configuring case manager is more complicated than one would expect. Making the user experience smooth & seamless (think SalesForce) is challenging.

Excellent security.

I have used this software for past 10 years and implemented this solution to multiple clients who have stored documents from multiple business units like Health, HR, Accounts payable, Banking etc. FileNet content manager provides robust out of the box tools for end users (IBM Content Navigator) and for admins(ACCE) to store and classify documents. It has a very robust security model which secures documents being accessing from the external world.
  • It has ability to access documents via a web interface without a client being installed on a device.
  • It provides robust solution for Document classification , securing documents, versioning of documents.
  • It supports storage of various document mime types which includes: MS office, images, videos etc.
  • Cloud deployment is still a work in progress.
  • IBM eForms are not compatible with IBM Content Navigator
  • FileNet Content Engine administration console (acce) is not user friendly and needs improvement.
As said earlier, we have developed applications for IBM FileNet Content manager for past 11 years and I believe FileNet is well suited for almost all industries like health, banking, HR, contracts, accounts paybale etc. where there is lot scope of document storage and business process involved. Definitely requires lot more progression in cloud deployment.
