Hilversum, November 1, 2016 - Xillio, provider of the Content ETL Platform, enables organizations to make a jump start with integration projects, thanks to the introduction of the IBM FileNet connector. The IBM FileNet P8 connector is an out-of-the-box connector that can be utilized to easily integrate content and metadata from FileNet with other content sources. In addition, content from FileNet can easily be migrated to a different enterprise content management (ECM) system, or vice versa.
"We see that more and more large organizations choose to maintain their multiple document repositories," said Rikkert Engels, founder and CEO of Xillio. "In this situation, it is important that there is only one version of a document with relevant metadata. Also, searching and finding the right information at the right time in the process, is essential. Thanks to our connectors, including the IBM FileNet connector, it is possible to connect all content repositories with each other, and to create or combine metadata based on business rules."
This new connector is bi-directional and can be used to extract content and metadata from the FileNet Content Engine, or vice versa, to import data in FileNet. Xillio has, therefore, developed both an import and an export connector. The data can be used for migration and integration projects.
The FileNet export connector creates a generic data model to store the content in the unified data model (UDM) database. It stores all data from FileNet, including metadata, versions, permissions, memberships and users and groups. From the UDM, data can be exchanged with another content source or be directly migrated to a different content management system (CMS).
The import connector creates documents in the FileNet Content Engine based on data that has been stored in the UDM. All data will be imported, including custom properties of all content types, permissions, versions, and other FileNet information. It is also possible to add content derived from a local disk or another system, and it is possible to import different content types.
