Deploying IBM FileNet P8 to Kubernetes

Here, I go through the steps involved to achieve a successful deployment. The container-sample, and container-navigator GIT repos mentioned in […]

Adding Additional Content Platform Engines to an Existing P8 Domain

There are many ways to implement FileNet P8 in an environment. Small organizations might have a simple implementation consisting of the Content Platform Engine (CPE), and Content Navigator. Large organizations may have multiple CPEs in a single cluster performing many different functions. Some of those functions are basic, such as end-users simply uploading or retrieving […]

Installing, Configuring, and Using IBM FileNet Deployment Manager

IBM FileNet P8 comes with many tools used for administering, and configuring the different aspects of the application. One of the most important is the FileNet Deployment Manager (FDM).

FileNet P8 Domains, Object Stores, and Document Classes

I created three videos with instructions on how to create a domain, an object store, and a document class with associated property templates and choice lists. 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 […]

After all content […]

IBM Information Lifecycle Governance: Solution Driven Model

IBM Information Lifecycle Governance: solution driven model

Enterprise Content Management solutions usually follow a standard lifecycle: A client identifies a need. They send out an RFP. A solution (more often than not, a software platform) is selected. The platform is installed, customized, and configured to solve the original problem. For Information Lifecycle Governance (ILG) solutions, the “selection of solution” stage is not […]

FileNet P8 5.2: Highly Scalable Process Architecture

In The Beginning… FileNet created Visual WorkFlo. In the years since, the software improved steadily, but the architecture mostly remained. With the release of version 5.0, IBM had rewritten the entire Process code base in Java; yet it remained wrapped in COM and the macro architecture remained mainly unchanged. Then came P8 5.2, and our […]
