Deploying IBM FileNet P8 to Kubernetes

IBM has created an easy to spin up containerized implementation of P8. The instructions and code for installing it is […]

FileNet P8 Domains, Object Stores, and Document Classes

However, all of these tasks assume you’ve installed, configured, and deployed the Content Platform Engine (CPE). Future videos will demonstrate how to do that. In the meantime, if you […]
