What's New in Content Manager V8.1:
Content Manager VideoCharger Feature
This feature, formerly a separate product, is now included in Content Manager for Multiplatforms V8.1. VideoCharger provides management and distribution of video and audio, and now delivers support for MPEG-4, including a downloaded transparent Java MPEG-4 client player applet, and other key enhancements. Running in stand-alone mode or tightly integrated with other Content Manager components, the Content Manager VideoCharger feature greatly enhances the ability to convey complex information and now no longer requires Licensing for Concurrent Streams.
Planned Availability Dates

Benefits of Content Manager V8.1 include:
IBM Content Manager Key Enhancements
Enhanced Enterprise Scalability: In addition to the client-server architecture introduced by its predecessors, Content Manager V8.1 unveils a fully Web-enabled, scalable, extensible, multitier, distributed architecture that includes the following:
This modular architecture is optimized to support a full range of configurations from small departmental workgroups to configurations that span geographically dispersed organizations, running diverse hardware platforms, with hundreds and potentially thousands, of users connected through the intranet/Internet, while maintaining secure central management control.
With Content Manager V8.1, IBM introduces platform support for Sun Solaris.
Enhanced Robust and Open Application Development Framework
Content Manager V8.1 offers significant performance improvements in the following areas:
Powerful, Enhanced Data Model
Advanced and flexible data modeling capabilities allow applications to readily represent real-world objects in the enterprise content environment, significantly reducing the application development effort. Content Manager V8.1 expands on the earlier data model to deliver a more powerful and expressive, XML-ready physical data model that can capture structural and relationship information across all types of content and its associated metadata or attributes.
New Integrated Full-text Index and Search Capabilities:
New Integrated Full-text Index and Search Capabilities provides full text search on text-type metadata attributes or text content. This allows customers to use attributes of any length, such as the abstract of a document, then later search for any word or combination of words within that text.
Enhanced Integrated and Resilient Enterprise-Scope Operations
Content Manager V8.1 provides a complete, integrated, extensible, and secure control environment for managing and processing content, while leveraging industry standards such as, LDAP authentication, user exits, and tighter integration of access control.
Content Manager V8.1 provides a single point of access for administering CM and EIP servers, users and groups, regardless of their location across an enterprise. This helps reduce operational costs and improves manageability.
Content Manager V8.1 delivers the following system administration enhancements:
Improved Document Routing Functionality
Content Manager V8.1 document routing functions support a formal, consistent and repeatable document routing process that enforces business rules along each step. Content Manager V8.1 Document Routing (formerly known as Content Manager Workflow) enhancements include:
All document routing capabilities are available through both the Client
for Windows and the eClient. Whether you choose to deploy the Client for
Windows, the eClient, or a mix across the enterprise, work items can be
effectively managed with access by all users.
IBM Content Manager OnDemand
Included with Content Manager V8.1, is the IBM Content Manager OnDemand application. Content Manager OnDemand is separately installable, yet can be fully integrated with Content Manager through the Content Manager eClient for federated search, access, viewing, and more. The optional and complementary Content Manager OnDemand application is the leading Enterprise Report Management (COLD) solution on the market, providing electronic statement presentment solutions, with high-volume capture of computer output, advanced client solutions for desktop and standard Web browsers, with automated storage management and advanced search and report-mining capabilities. The Content Manager OnDemand application will let an enterprise automatically organize and store any printed output, such as reports, statements, or invoices, as well as e-mails and image documents. It is a computer output content management solution for leading ERP and CRM applications (such as PeopleSoft and Siebel) and also provides a platform for implementing leading electronic bill presentment and payment solutions.
Content Manager OnDemand is fully integrated with Xenos Corporation's d2e
for Documents transforms, separately available from IBM. With d2e for
Documents, customers can capture and handle viewing for Xerox Metacode,
PDF, IBM AFP, XML, and HTML formats. Recently added support for
output transforms to XML and HTML (META2XML, AFP2XML, META2HTML,
AFP2HTML) provides the Web-enabling of printed for easy viewing and
enabling e-commerce interactions, based on the core repository of Content
IBM Content Manager VideoCharger Enhancements
Video and audio, along with images, text, and graphics, offer one of the most effective means of conveying complex information. With IBM Content Manager VideoCharger, you can deliver or distribute rich digital multimedia resources over the Internet or intranet to users all over the world in real time, eliminating the need to download or save the file before playing the video. VideoCharger enhances and extends Content Manager by providing streaming delivery of standards-based digital audio and video over these networks to conventional Web browsers and clients, as well as supporting the standard protocols like RTP, RTSP, and IP Multicast.
Whether it is for entertainment on demand, education on demand, facilitating effective corporate communications and training, or adding streaming media to any application, IBM Content Manager VideoCharger delivers streaming media content upon request, how, when, and where it's needed. When combined with the IBM Content Manager system, it provides a powerful and scalable search, management, and archive environment for all types of rich media content. VideoCharger is now offered as a component of Content Manager Version 8. It can be implemented in a stand-alone mode or tightly integrated with IBM Content Manager Version 8. The VideoCharger component in Content Manager Version 8 is an upgrade of Content Manager VideoCharger V7.
What's New in VideoCharger Version 8.1:

IBM Content Manager for Multiplatforms V8 is a client server product which has two charge units: Server install and Concurrent User, with optionally priced features per Server for the Content Manager OnDemand PDF Indexer and Content Manager VideoCharger additional Server installs.
Content Manager V8.1 delivers a newly integrated offering. Refer to below for key changes and ordering recommendations.
All orders for this product are placed through Passport Advantage.
Content Manager Server
Your license to the Program entitles you to install one instance of one of the following solutions: Content Manager, Content Manager OnDemand, or the EIP Advanced Workflow program server. If you wish to install additional program server instances on the same or on additional physical servers or nodes, you must acquire additional Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs).
Definitions of an instance:
Content Manager OnDemand
EIP Advanced Workflow
Content Manager Concurrent User
You must acquire an authorization for each Concurrent User. The number of concurrent users is defined as the maximum or peak number of users connected to the program servers at one time. Each user connection is considered to be active, and therefore concurrent, for 30 minutes after logon or any transaction against the server. If the user invokes any transaction activity within a 30 minute interval, they will continue to be considered an active concurrent user. If the connected user remains inactive for a period of greater than 30 minutes, they will no longer be considered an active concurrent user, until they re-establish an active connection by invoking a transaction against the server.
The number of actual concurrent users may not exceed the number authorized by the quantity of Concurrent User Licenses you have purchased. Each Content Manager Concurrent User license authorizes one individual user to connect to one Content Manager and/or Content Manager OnDemand program server across any of the following platforms: Windows NT, Windows 2000, AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris, OS/390, and z/OS.
The definition of a concurrent user includes all users, either within or outside your enterprise, who establish one or more connections to any Content Manager or Content Manager OnDemand program server. These connections may be either direct or through a surrogate or application server (using common techniques such as end user mapping or connection pooling). Employees, clients, partners, and Internet users who make a connection via either an application or client are all counted as concurrent users.
For example, if you have 300 users, and all of these users will interact with the program server once every 10 minutes, then you require 300 Concurrent User licenses. Each user is concurrent because they have made a transaction within the 30 minute window.
In another example, if you have 300 users, and all of these users will interact with the program server once every hour, with user transactions evenly balanced over the hour, it is expected you would require 150 Concurrent User licenses. Since each user is making only one transaction during the hour period, only half the users would have made a transaction within the 30 minute window and would be inactive at other times.
If the user access pattern cannot be predicted at time of initial purchase, then the best estimate of Users and activity levels should be calculated, and after implementation, actual usage patterns should be monitored to validate licensing requirements versus authorizations, so that you can true-up the license periodically. To support this activity validation, IBM provides monitoring tools for individual user connectivity to the servers in the program server logs. If connections are made via an application server or Web server, where individuals are not directly logged onto the servers, you should implement a monitoring tool such as WebSphere Site Analyzer to track the number of concurrent users who are accessing the servers via your front end application.
Content Manager VideoCharger Component
Each license of the Content Manager VideoCharger Component entitles you to install one Content Manager VideoCharger server. A separate media pack exists for this item. It is possible to order only the VideoCharger Component of Content Manager.
Content Manager OnDemand PDF Indexer
Your license to the Content Manager OnDemand PDF Indexer entitles you to install and use the PDF Indexer component to support definition and capture of PDF data streams on one Content Manager OnDemand Server (Windows NT, Windows 2000, AIX, HP-UX or Sun Solaris). If you wish to capture PDF data streams on additional Content Manager OnDemand Servers, you must purchase additional Proofs of Entitlement. This item does not have a separate media pack.
Content Manager IWPM V2.3
Note: The following provides an update on newly added support for Windows XP desktops for the Content Manager ImagePlus Workstation Program (IWPM), used by many Content Manager ImagePlus for OS/390 and Content Manager for iSeries customers:
Content Manager IWPM V2.3 now includes support for Windows XP, and is available via download only from the IBM FTP site and requires a Content Manager IWPM V2.3 or Client Access License for each instance or desktop. There is no physical CD available for Content Manager IWPM XP installations. You must purchase an IWPM upgrade or an ImagePlus for OS/390 Client Access upgrade. Contact your IBM representative or:
