ECM 9.1 - installation no longer needs VSRuntime pre-reqs?Open in a New Window

This might be a question for support, but asking here first ...

We're dabbling with ECM 9.1, it came out just in time for our Next Big Upgrade (yay!).  I notice that the 32BitInstalls and 64BitInstalls folders don't include VS2010_Runtimes_xxx.msi or VS2013_Runtimes_xxx.msi.  Those are included in ECM 9.0, just not ECM 9.1

Are these no longer required, or is it just an oversight? 




What's the best way of keeping track of /future/ releases of HPECM?Open in a New Window

Are betas or future release notes published anywhere?

After months of badgering our HPE rep about LDAP directory synchronisation we bit the bullet, figured it wasn't coming any time soon and upgraded to HPECM to support our upcomming Windows 10/Office 2016 operating environment upgrade.

Then this week 9.1 comes out and in the release notes:

Directory Synchronization
The ability to synchronize locations with Active Directory (AD) has been added to HPE Content

This is frustrating to say the least!

Am I missing something about how future releases are communicated? What's the best way of avoiding making poor decisions like we did with this upgrade?

Incorrect, non-relative error message relating to Closed Files in HPRMOpen in a New Window

Could I please add the following strong suggestion to the next patch of HPRM?

- currently if you try and contain a new document to a "Closed" HPRM container you get the following message -

"<field name.............> Field Cannot be Left Blank"

- does it make sense to the end-user - no, it makes them think they're having a possible database table/ technical issue or that they've input no container number, yet they can see it displayed (see also attached screen shot):

- Id recommend the following : "The Container Record has now been closed - navigate to the next part or volume (use KwikSelect) to contain to"

Hi All

I would like to hear from other fellow members, if they have used HP RM as an Application Plaform for transactional systems compare to its traditional usage of being seens as Archiving solution only. We have implemented HP RM in the following scenarios where RM becomes an Application for 

- Medical Prescription and medical records holding alll transactional data including collaboration, 

- Sea Port Management for all Arrivals, Departures, Bunkering process, Incident Management, Document Submissions as transactions where RM holds uptodate and Live transactions

- Engineering Drawings Management (with Autodesk Vault), where live drawings pdf and metadata is stored and presented through Portal for Engineer's collaboration., update process is initiated from RM process as well.

- Environment Sampling and Statistics data ( collected from sensors) is stored in RM and reported based on business rules.

- Insurance CRM - Quote to Claim process including Case management managed in RM presented through Portal.

- Project Management Framework for all Engineering -Construction projects managed in RM through Web Portal. 

- Financial Trading system small Trading firm where all the trades are mamaged in RM for Audit and Comliance leveraging on Spot Exchange rate fed through contract rate feed in XML basis stored and managed in RM for 6 currencies. End of Day Summary compied in Report and stored against each currency.

Currently in  Progress - Distributed HA-DR Capable Hybrid RM Data Lake where RM Application is located at 3 different location  ( 2 on prem - 1 in Cloud). We are using Power Plant Business case for this scenario for Power Plant controlled documents, Maintenance Checklist, Routine Maintenance and Drawing where Asset are identified by using Power Plant KKS Code for Asset amanagement.

I would like to hear  how others have leveraged on HP RM as a  Platform, happy to compare notes.

HPE CM 9.0.0 - Build 201Open in a New Window

Has anyone upgraded to the current release.

I have started the process for migrating our existing and I am seeing strange results with HPEContentManger web services.

Internet Explorer 11 won't load it at all whereas Firefox works fine with intergrated authentication, which it shouldn't.
The documentation is not even remotely accurate either.  Looks like they changed the front page and anything the refered to Records manager because things are not what they seem.

Not looking forward to loging a service ticket.
