Overview

IBM WebSphere® Information Integrator Content Edition is the newest addition to IBM's WebSphere Information Integrator portfolio. It powers key applications by providing a common interface over diverse content repositories and workflow systems — including those from IBM, EMC (Documentum), FileNet, Hummingbird®, Interwoven, Open Text, Stellent, and others — making them look and act as one system. According to industry estimates, 85% of business information is unstructured; that is, it is stored as large objects such as documents, correspondence, images, reports, or the like. Leveraging content efficiently and effectively across the organization is critical for:

  • Cost reduction: Improve customer service by providing clients and service agents access to all relevant documents, images, e-mail, and other distributed content from a single interface.
  • Revenue growth: Enhance cross-sell initiatives and other merger-related synergies by rapidly integrating disparate repositories; and streamline future mergers with an acquisition-ready infrastructure for combining content assets from disparate environments.
  • Risk mitigation: Unify access to distributed information to better identify and respond to risks; apply retention and disposition policies on content stored in disparate systems; and create a consolidated event log across multiple systems for managing audit trails.

Furthermore, many business-critical applications now require integration of structured data such as revenue figures together with unstructured information such as reports.

  • Regulatory compliance where loan applications must be combined with an organization's credit rating, loan default patterns, or business relationships to assess risk and justify actions
  • Law enforcement where criminal investigations need to leverage criminal, immigration, travel, phone, and DNA records stored in myriad databases
  • Pharmaceutical research where collaboration across biological and chemical research domains requires access to assets spread across public, private, and privately shared lab results, genetic information, chemical information, academic papers, and more

The WebSphere Information Integrator portfolio provides organizations real-time, integrated access to business information — structured and unstructured, mainframe and distributed, public and private — across and beyond the enterprise. WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition can be used standalone through its content-oriented application programming interface (API) and can be used in combination with other WebSphere Information Integrator editions for wide-ranging information access using industry-standard SQL or free-form search.

Description

With most content initiatives managed at the departmental level, it is common for organizations to have multiple instances of content repositories as well as repositories from multiple vendors. In fact, industry analysts indicate that over 75% of customers are managing their unstructured content in more than one repository and 25% manage more than 15 repositories. WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition helps organizations get more value from their existing content assets.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition enables applications to access and work with a broad range of unstructured information sources as if they were stored and managed in one unified system. Rather than accessing each repository individually or coding to multiple APIs from different vendors or replacing existing systems, you can utilize WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition's uniform superset API and real-time content views of content and workflow accessed in place. WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition exposes the full, two-way function of underlying content management and workflow systems, adheres to the security of those systems, and adds federation services such as metadata mapping, federated search, and single sign-on. WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition provides tools to easily develop enterprise applications that connect to any content system, and provides out-of-the-box connectors to leading content repositories and workflow systems such as IBM's DB2® Content Manager, DB2 Content Manager OnDemand, WebSphere MQ Workflow, and Lotus Notes®, as well as those from FileNet, EMC (Documentum), Microsoft™, Hummingbird, Interwoven, Open Text, and Stellent.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition features

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition delivers full bidirectional access to underlying content and workflow systems, including the unique capabilities of the underlying repository. Out-of-the-box connectors quickly unify a broad range of content sources and workflow systems without the cost, complexity, and risk of custom programming efforts. Connectors are available to the following systems:

  • DB2 Content Manager
  • DB2 Content Manager OnDemand
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Workflow
  • IBM Lotus Notes
  • IBM Lotus® Domino.Doc®
  • Documentum
  • FileNet Content Services
  • FileNet Image Services
  • FileNet Image Services Resource Adapter
  • FileNet P8 Content Manager
  • FileNet P8 Business Process Manager
  • Open Text LiveLink
  • Microsoft Index Server/NTFS
  • Stellent Content Server
  • Interwoven TeamSite
  • Hummingbird Enterprise DM

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition also includes a toolkit that enables the development, configuration, and deployment of content connectors to additional commercial and proprietary repositories. Sample connectors are provided for accessing file systems.

When accessing content repositories, users can:

  • Create, delete, and browse folders
  • Check in, check out, and modify content
  • File and unfile content in folders
  • Retrieve folders and folder contents
  • View and update metadata, security, and annotations
  • View and create versions and renditions
  • Create and work with compound documents
  • Create and interact with workflow tasks and queues
  • Access data in any locale, including SBCS and DBCS character sets, as well as Unicode
  • View content dynamically in a browser; supported formats include virtually all standard business formats, as well as specialized formats such as TIFF and MODCA
  • Manipulate images through the browser interface
  • Monitor content, content folders, workflow items, and queues for changes, and trigger actions when a change occurs

In addition, WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition provides value-added function that spans disparate content repositories and workflow systems, and depending upon the repository used, allows you to:

  • Map metadata for creating a common schema across different content systems.
  • Organize and view related content from multiple content repositories and view work tasks from multiple workflow systems to support a specific business user's task such as claims processing, loan origination, intelligence investigations, or any other content-centric work process.
  • Search across multiple repositories using property-based and full-text keyword-based queries and receive an aggregated result set.
  • Create custom event handlers and other rules-based behaviors that span multiple content and workflow repositories. For example, a single event log can be set up for centralized auditing in support of various compliance initiatives, or synchronization rules can be set up to migrate content as it is modified.
  • Sign on once using an LDAP, Active Directory, or WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition identity, and the single sign-on system encrypts and stores multiple repository credentials providing seamless logons to multiple underlying systems through the single authentication process.
  • Be productive immediately, using an out-of-the-box configurable Web client for knowledge workers that offers a completely unified user experience with federated search and browsing, and exposes all the content management functions of the underlying repositories. Web users can also take advantage of other features including single sign-on, content views, subscription services, and viewing support.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition makes distributed content and workflow fully accessible within any application. Developers can use prebuilt Web components that support the standard function for accessing, managing, and working with distributed content. These components can be snapped into and customized to match the user interface of customer or other applications, including portals, enterprise applications, and collaborative applications. Web components provide commonly required capability such as:

  • Navigating a repository
  • Querying a repository
  • Creating, listing, and updating content
  • Managing content security
  • Converting content items into a browser-ready format

All Web components are available as JSR 168 portlets to speed up deployment in portal applications.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition includes a bidirectional Java™ API that applications can use to access the full function of the underlying repositories and workflow systems. All capability can also be accessed via Web services to address other popular application development environments.

Product positioning

Virtually all organizations today have multiple content repositories in place, as a result of departmental purchasing decision and merger and acquisition activity. This has severely challenged organizations as they've looked to break down departmental process silos with enterprise applications, and initiatives such as portals, CRM initiatives, domain-specific workflow applications, and projects associated with compliance and research and intelligence. Common among these applications is the need to access and manage content in multiple disparate repositories.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition enables organizations to access and work with all of their distributed content as if the assets were stored and managed in a single unified repository. This allows organizations to better access, utilize, and control their distributed content assets. For example:

  • Enhance CRM and other business applications — Integrate documents, images, rich media, e-mail, and other business-critical content assets into customer service and other line-of-business applications to optimize levels of service and operational efficiency.
  • Consolidate operations after merger and acquisition (M&A) activity and future-proof applications — Rapidly integrate heterogeneous systems inherited by M&A to ensure operational continuity and ongoing compliance, and to better exploit synergies such as cross-sell and up-sell opportunities. Porting applications to an abstraction layer ensures that they remain repository independent and are not disrupted by upgrades, migrations, or the addition of new content sources through M&A.
  • Integrate mixed content with workflow processes — Associate content stored in multiple disparate repositories with a single workflow item to streamline and optimize content-centric workflow processes, such as claims processing, underwriting, contract management, and loan origination.
  • Extend compliance and records management initiatives — Centralize audit logs for managing compliance across systems, or enable a virtual records management application that allows you to apply retention and disposition policies to content stored in external systems.
  • Accelerate deployment of content-centric applications — Eliminate the need for custom integrations to underlying content sources and workflow systems by embedding prebuilt Web components that provide full bidirectional access to multiple disparate underlying systems.

Furthermore, WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition complements IBM's information management, collaboration, business process, and portal solutions, enhancing them with rich content.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition integrates seamlessly with WebSphere Information Integrator OmniFind Edition to provide a greater range of unstructured information sources via a free-form search paradigm. Text search applications in call centers, corporate intranets, or business portals can easily access information in content management systems as well as on the Web, in file systems, and in other applications. Applications and initiatives within financial services, government, insurance, healthcare, and other industries are increasingly dependent on this combined lens of structured data and unstructured content for identifying the trends and patterns that reveal risks, inform decisions, and help to optimize operations.

WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition integrates with WebSphere Information Integrator's SQL federation capabilities, giving applications access to the widest range of structured and unstructured information, all through a single SQL query that works with leading analytical, reporting, portal, process, and application development software. Federation of structured data together with unstructured content has powerful implications for today's On Demand Business. For example:

  • Business intelligence initiatives — Improve reporting and make more informed decisions based on a complete, actionable, and relatable data model that ties together data and content sources.
  • Law enforcement — Combine diverse information such as criminal records, immigration records, travel records, DNA records, and so on, stored in myriad databases to assist criminal investigations.
  • Insurance scenarios such as claims adjustment — Tie together the claim forms, police reports, loss appraisals, and photographs with customer account detail, such as historical loss trends, driving records, and so on.
  • Financial services scenarios such as equity research — Analyze news feeds and financials together with reports and analyses to form a complete picture of a company's future prospects.
  • Call center data analysis — Analyze call center data and other problem records located in e-mails, correspondence, recorded audio, and so on for early detection of problem trends, or for better understanding of customers' needs.
  • Regulatory compliance — Combine loan applications with an organization's credit rating, loan default patterns, and more to assess risk and justify actions.
  • Pharmaceutical research — Facilitate collaboration across biological and chemical research domains whose assets are spread across public, private, and privately shared lab results, genetic information, chemical information, academic papers, and more.
  • Medical research — Analyze image data (X-rays, MRIs, and so on), together with treatment histories and results and new research, to determine optimal treatment plans.

Program unique terms

Note: The text in this section is presented for general information purposes. For detailed terms and conditions, refer to the license agreement.

Use-based charges — Resources available or attached

Charges for the WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition (the "Program") are based on processors attached or available to it and on connectors for content or workflow sources accessed.

Processors

The total number of processors that are attached or available may not exceed the number authorized by the applicable Proof(s) of Entitlement (PoE). If the total number of processors exceeds the quantity in the customer's PoE the customer must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.

Connectors

The total number of content or workflow sources accessed may not exceed the number authorized by the applicable connector PoE(s). If the total number of connectors used exceeds that which is authorized by the applicable PoE, the customer must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA. Each connector PoE enables access, from the Program residing on one physical server, to one of the specified content or workflow sources described below. Additional connector instances will require additional connector PoE(s).

  • One Connector for IBM entitles access to only one of the following options:
    • One IBM WebSphere MQ Workflow Server
    • One IBM DB2 Content Manager Library Server
    • One IBM DB2 Content Manager OnDemand Library Server
    • Any number of IBM Lotus Domino.Doc Servers available to the Program within the Enterprise
    • Any number of IBM Lotus Notes Domino™ Servers available to the Program within the Enterprise
  • One Connector for Documentum entitles access to one Documentum Content Server plus its associated Process Automation Services.
  • One Connector for FileNet entitles access to only one of the following options:
    • One FileNet Image Services library and, where applicable, its associated workflow processes
    • One FileNet Content Services library
    • One FileNet P8 Content Manager object store
    • One FileNet P8 Business Process Manager process router
  • One Connector for Hummingbird entitles access to one Hummingbird Enterprise DM repository.
  • One Connector for Interwoven entitles access to one TeamSite Content Server content store.
  • One Connector for Microsoft Index Server entitles access to the content associated with one Index Server catalog.
  • One Connector for Stellent entitles access to one Stellent content server.
  • One Connector for Open Text entitles access to one LiveLink Enterprise Server.

For content or workflow sources not specifically listed above, the following applies:

  • One Connector for an e-mail or collaborative system entitles access to one or more servers of one specific type of a supported e-mail or collaboration system accessible by the Program.
  • One connector for a content or document management system entitles you to access a supported content management system on one server.

Example for calculating required connectors: To install IBM WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition on an IBM eServer xSeries® four-processor machine for access to content from one FileNet P8 Content Manager object store, one FileNet Content Services library, and several Lotus Notes Domino servers within the enterprise would require the purchase of entitlements for the following:

  • Four WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition processors
  • Two Connectors for FileNet
  • One Connector for IBM

The installation of WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition on another machine to access those same content source instances would require the purchase of additional processor and connector entitlements.

High availability terms

In idle standby or active standby, customers must acquire the correct number of processors; for active standby they must also acquire the correct number of connectors.

In an active standby configuration, the Program is operational on all servers to service user transactions or queries. Because each of the active standby servers is used to operate the Program for user transactions or queries before or after a failure, the Program must be fully licensed. In active standby, customers must license the Program for the number of processors attached or available to the active standby server and for the number of connectors available to the active standby server. For example, if the standby server has four processors and two connectors then you must obtain four processor entitlements and two connector entitlements.

In an idle standby configuration, all servers have the Program installed; however, at least one of the servers does not have the Program operational to service user transactions or query workloads. In idle standby, customers must license the Program for one processor per idle server only, irrespective to the number of processors or connectors attached or available to the server.

Client components

The Program contains documentation, a client API, and a View Services viewer applet (available only with a PoE for View Services). Customers may make a reasonable number of copies of the documentation for use within the Enterprise in support of their authorized use of the Program. They may use the API and View Services viewer applet on an unlimited number of clients within their Enterprise in support of their authorized use of the Program.

Limited Use License of WebSphere Application Server

For each server on which the Program is installed, customers are entitled to install and use, from the media provided with the Program, one copy of each of the WebSphere Application Server components required to support their licensed use of the Program. Their use of the Application Server components is limited to use in support of their licensed use of the Program, and is subject to the terms and conditions of the license agreement (except as limited in this paragraph) which accompanies the Application Server components. The WebSphere Application Server components provided with the Program may not be used for any other purpose unless a full license for WebSphere Application Server is purchased.
