Overall Satisfaction with IBM FileNet Content Manager

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.
  • Increased compliance.
  • Expensive to maintain
  • Less time spent managing files.
Not used many others like this. However, the others do seem more lightweight and easier to deploy.
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.

Would you buy IBM FileNet Content Manager again?


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.
