Why upgrade UCM (Stellent) from 7.5.X to 10G?

Folks that are in charge of maintaining any environment are always looking out for patches and upgrades to their products. More often than not, the sales department is asked what the newer product has over the old product that makes it a useful upgrade for their environment.

This is a common question and different aspects of the 10g line of Content Server do make an upgrade very worth while for different customers. I will cover some of these new technologies and functions here.

1) The Filestore Provider. This is a standard component that's installed by default on all new 10g Content Servers. This component allows repositories to avoid file system limitations by having an abstract layer dictate how files are stored on the disks you have available. Whether this be a SAN, NAS, RAID, Database, or simply a few logical disks in your machine, Filestore Provider allows complete control with how content is stored. The Filestore Provider also allows administrators to choose not to have Web Viewable versions of content.

2) Database Support. Oracle 10g and 11g are both fully supported with UCM 10g.

3) Folios. Content Server 10g allows the creation of virtual folders for all your content. This allows administrators and users the ability to orgainze their related content in ways tools in the past couldn't give you.

4) Complete rewrite of the Inbound Refinery service. Improvements have been made around the board with the new product.

5) Retention Manager Corporate Edition is included. This allows easy inclusion of your rentention needs with your Content Server. This fully integrates with the more powerful and robust Universal Records and Retention Management instances you may currently have.

6) New searching capabilities. Now fully integrates with Oracle Full Text Search. Allows your users the ability to write their own search queries. Better and more efficient database searching.

This lists just a few reasons why you may want to upgrade. Contact your sales rep for further information!
