Description

IBM Content Manager for iSeries V5R1 (previously known as EDMSuite ImagePlus VisualInfo™ for AS/400) is a client/server software product designed to replace paper document processing with image processing for greater efficiency, reliability, and security. Content Manager for iSeries is IBM's document imaging and work management system for the iSeries and a strategic member of the IBM Content Manager portfolio of products. Content Manager can serve the needs of a small departmental application or act as an enterprise solution for a large corporation. Even in geographically dispersed enterprises, mission-critical information can be delivered to users when they need it, providing rapid response for employees and customers alike.

Content Manager controls the capture, indexing, storage, and retrieval of documents or facsimiles as digitized images. Documents are initially stored on iSeries DASD and can be automatically migrated to an optical storage system. System-managed storage enables users to balance retrieval performance and storage costs with minimal staff intervention. Content Manager for iSeries also provides both advanced and ad-hoc workflow functions, allowing business processes to be automated, with a simple graphical builder tool designed to implement advanced workflow quickly.

"Out of the box" GUI clients are provided so users can retrieve and work with items stored in Content Manager with ease. Application programming interfaces also allow customers to integrate or develop customized document management solutions to content-enable line of business applications seamlessly. Content Manager's advanced capabilities help iSeries customers worldwide automate and gain control of the information that the enterprise receives, creates, and processes.

The separately available Content Manager ImagePlus Workstation Program V2.3 (CM IWPM) is an alternate GUI client application that is still supported for existing customers who have migrated to the Content Manager for iSeries application with previously existing Workfolder Application Facility (WAF) environments.

Enhancements delivered in Content Manager V5R1 include the following:

Content Manager for Windows Client Enhancements

  • Table of Contents enhancements:
    • A new Windows Explorer-like interface for workbaskets, search results, and folders. This provides a familiar interface for Windows users, allowing users to "drill down" into folders without opening new windows.
    • A view of the total search count and number selected.
    • Additions to the Actions menu, which now includes Selected and Processed menus.
    • New context (pop-up) menus.
    • The client application now supports a Drag and Drop interface, providing a more natural interface for moving documents from folder to folder or workbasket to workbasket.
  • New process dialogs which include:
    • A Change Owner dialog window is provided to allow you to change the ownership of selected work packages.

      Note: After the ownership is changed, a person who accesses a user workbasket can see only documents or folders that they own (or that are not owned by another person).

    • A History dialog window is provided to show all history events associated with a selected work package.
    • A Set Variable dialog window is provided with a button that allows you to create a new process.

Additional Content Manager Windows client enhancements include:

  • You can request the Index and Notelog dialogs when documents are opened.
  • Index dialogs remember previous size and position.
  • The Import dialog stays open until it is explicitly closed.
  • The table of contents is refreshed whenever an item has been re-indexed.
  • New enhanced OLE APIs and print-related functions are provided with this release.
  • New "attribute value list" user exits allow an administrator to extend the Edit Index dialog box to include the combo-box (drop-down list) controls. These exits can be implemented to simplify the indexing process by listing only the valid values for a given key field.
  • Users can now select a specific set of workbaskets for which they want to see item counts. This is useful for customers who have large numbers of workbaskets and need to know how many items are in some workbaskets, but do not want to pay the performance price to get item counts for all workbaskets.
  • The Basic Search dialog now remembers the last index class that was used for a search. This feature allows users to make simple searches over the same index class.
  • A new retrieve menu and action list for object staging is provided to allow items to be staged to disk from tape or other storage media.
  • A new Storage Location indicator is provided at the document level to indicate where it is staged: on the object servers disk, tape, or CD. This status is visible as an optional column in the table of contents. This is accessible from the layout menu and dialog. When configured properly, users can see this indicator, so they can anticipate retrieval times, based in storage location.
  • You can install multiple language versions of the client. At run time you may select the language you want to use.

Capture, Audit and Storage Management Usability Improvements

  • Import — On the iSeries server, objects can be imported into Content Manager and indexed.
  • Object Staging — You can selectively retrieve items from secondary storage to DASD.
  • Storage Location Indicator — The storage location indicator can be selected as a system attribute.

Improved Foldering Options

Recursive Auto-foldering — Content Manager server offers recursive Auto-foldering, while supporting a single level of indexing.

Multiple Content Manager Advanced Workflow Feature Enhancements

Workflow Decision Point — Content Manager for iSeries will support the following workflow variables: system, user-defined, library, and external application variables.

  • Workflow Library Variables — The library variables are read-only and are not explicitly maintained within the work package variable file.
  • Workflow Collection Point — Users can obtain collection point criteria during run-time.
  • Workflow Multiple Suspend Criteria — Multiple suspend requests can be specified for an item.
  • Workflow Work Ownership — This will ensure that the same user works a work package to completion even though the work package goes to many workbaskets.
  • Workflow History — Users can log and view workflow history. Process and work package activity will also be logged.
  • Workflow Variable Workbasket — The WORK command has been modified to allow a variable to be specified as the workbasket parameter, providing flexibility in route definitions in that the workbaskets the work package will flow through do not have to be predefined.
  • Workflow Set Variable — Is added to the Workflow menu within the client application. When selected, this option will allow users to set the value of a work package variable.

Content Manager Advanced Workflow Feature

Content Manager for iSeries Advanced Workflow provides a fast, efficient way to customize and automate business processes. Advanced workflow includes functions for building a work process, and for routing documents and folders through a business automatically. The Advanced Workflow feature of Content Manager provides a versatile, easy-to-use graphical Workflow Builder tool where professionals can define and optimize the work process of a group, department, or enterprise. A user can drag and drop graphical icons to construct a comprehensive, easy-to-understand process diagram.

All of these functions are defined graphically. No code needs to be written to create or modify the diagrams and there is no need to learn a programming language. Over 300 APIs are provided.

The routing aspects of workflow can be handled in several ways, depending on business needs. Routing can be sequential, conditional, parallel, or ad hoc.

  • Sequential routing allows one person to work on a document or folder at a time.
  • Conditional routing moves the document or folder to specified workbaskets when a predetermined condition is reached, such as a mortgage loan ceiling that requires audit review.
  • Parallel routing allows different departments to work simultaneously; the work waits for all groups to finish before proceeding.
  • Ad-hoc routing allows users to manually move documents or folders to other users.

With advanced workflow, you can identify elements and decisions that are critical to a business, along with complex relationships and outcomes. As a result, users can implement policies and procedures consistently, resulting in increased productivity, enhanced quality, and improvement in the way an organization does business.

Access and Security

Content Manager for iSeries provides flexibility for controlling access to index classes (types of documents), workbaskets, and advanced workflow processes. By using access lists, the Content Manager for iSeries administrator can control by user or by group all levels of access to these resources. For example, only certain people would be allowed to read documents stored in the "Employee Data" index class and even fewer would be allowed to store into this index class.

Application Development and Integration

The Content Manager for iSeries API set, Server Exits, and Workstation APIs provide integration capabilities by supporting processes that send and/or receive, update, or validate that correct information has been passed from the client or another application using Content Manager for iSeries. This toolkit provides the flexibility to validate index data, gather workflow variable data, or launch viewing of a specific document from a business application.

Content Manager eClient

Also generally available separately, effective March 30, 2001, is the new Content Manager eClient.

The Content Manager eClient allows users to view multiple documents and their associated annotations simultaneously, with options to print, fax, or e-mail documents. The Content Manager eClient enables viewing of a broad range of documents formats, without plug-ins, including multiple image formats (TIFF, MO:DCA, JPEG and GIF), printed reports in AFP™ and line data formats, and many additional office document formats, through the use of integrated, server-based transforms. Other content can be viewed through a standard Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) launch.

The IBM Content Manager eClient is packaged with both the IBM Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) and the EIP Client Kit for Content Manager, where search technologies, content repository connectors, Java™ Server Pages (JSP), and server-based transforms are provided.

Accessibility by People with Disabilities

The following features support use by people with disabilities:

  • Operation by keyboard alone
  • Optional font enlargement and high-contrast display settings
  • Screen readers and screen magnifiers tested for use by people with visual impairment
  • Speech recognition products tested for use by people with mobility impairment
  • Optional display of audio alerts for people with hearing impairment

Euro Currency

This program is EuroReady.

For more information on the implications of the euro, visit the IBM euro Web site at:

EuroReady Products: IBM considers an IBM product to be EuroReady if the product, when used in accordance with its associated documentation, is capable of correctly processing monetary data in the euro denomination and of respecting the euro currency formatting conventions (including the euro sign). This assumes that all other products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) that are used with this product are also EuroReady. IBM hardware products that are EuroReady may or may not have an engraved euro sign key on their keyboards.

Currently, EuroReady status applies primarily to IBM products specific to the EMU countries. Products that are not specific to these countries are deemed to be "not ready" for euro unless otherwise stated in the product's country-specific specifications.

IBM Hardware Ready: IBM supplies certain IBM products that include third-party software (preloaded or not) and/or third-party attached hardware. In these instances, IBM is not in a position to assert that these third-party products are, in themselves, EuroReady.

Therefore, such IBM products will be designated as Hardware ready.

EuroReady Solutions: IBM considers a solution to be EuroReady when the solution providers have:

  • Analyzed the euro requirements, including the need to comply with relevant EC rules
  • Built in appropriate function

and can clearly demonstrate this by:

  • Detailing euro related requirements
  • Describing how these will be implemented in the solution
  • Declaring when the implementation will be generally available

The euro capabilities of a EuroReady solution will be clearly identified as features of the solution specification, as described in the contracts document.
