ECM Customisation and Integration

Approaching Content Server customisation and integration with the aim of 'minimising to zero' any adverse impact on native Content Server, ndow employs tools and techniques that avoid 'tinkering' with proprietary Content Server code ....  More/Less

ndow uses a combination of Scripting, Java(J2EE), Microsoft .NET, LAPI, XML and SQL (Stored Procedures and Views), to achieve seamless and future-proof customisation and integration. OScript changes are made only when there is no alternative method for a particular enhancement, or at the Customer's request.

This approach avoids problems when upgrading to a new Content Server version, or when required patch's have to be applied.


ECM Upgrade and Architecture

Planning new Content Server installation, version upgrade or architectural changes in accordance with Customer requirements, ndow will execute the plan to have minimal impact on the Customer's existing operations ....  More/Less

Running a project from start to finish, ndow liases with all involved parties, as required: Company Executive, Internal Teams, (infrastructure support, DBA, etc), and appropriately, with External Agencies.


Content Management

Defining a Community Model that maps User and Group structure in accordance with Corporate Policy, is essential to the success of ECM within an organisation ....  More/Less

Another, most vital requirement is that confidentiality, integrity and access to information in the ECM system is controlled by local business units, not by delegated IT experts/functions that have no knowledge of, nor responsibility for the information.

Business Process Automation

Automation of internal business operations, tasks and transactions that simplify and streamline current business processes is a most valuable exercise, and core Content Server functionality provides for this in the form of Workflow ....  More/Less
