IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager: Exploring Object Store-level Items

by William J. Carpenter | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Content Management

The previous article dealt with Exploring Domain-level items. Let's turn our attention now to the Object Store and things inside it. Since an Object Store is a repository, things that reside inside an Object Store are called repository objects. It's a slightly technical point, but the Object Store itself is not a repository object.

In this article by William J. Carpenter, author of Getting Started with IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager, we'll cover:

  • A discussion of an Object Store and what's in it
  • An example of creating a custom class and adding custom properties to it

IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager: Administrative Tools and Tasks

by William J. Carpenter | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Content Management

Although we will be using FileNet Enterprise Manager (FEM) to illustrate most of the features, remember that these are really features of the Content Engine (CE) itself. As such, they are sometimes available in other tools and always available via the CE APIs. The point is not to show how to operate FEM itself, but to illustrate Content Manager (CM) features. Because FEM is an administrator's tool, we'll concentrate mostly on administrative concepts and tasks.

In this article by William J. Carpenter, author of Getting Started with IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager, we'll cover:

  • A discussion of the P8 Domain and what's in it
  • How to use topology levels to configure your environment
  • A discussion of the objects that reside directly within a Domain

An Overview of Microsoft Sure Step

by Chandru Shankar Vincent Bellefroid | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

Delivering business solutions is more than just product play. Software is often viewed as the enabler; however, the key to success is how the solution is implemented and how the implementations are managed. With this as the background, Microsoft has developed Sure Step as the full lifecycle methodology for the Microsoft Dynamics solutions portfolio. In this article, we introduce the concept of Methodology and its importance in the selection and implementation of ERP/CRM solutions. A faulty selection process can derail any solution deployment, and it is important for the readers to understand what they can do to prevent this.

In this article by Chandru Shankar and Vincent Bellefroid, authors of Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step, we will introduce the concepts and definitions. We will also provide an overview of Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step, and the different aspects of the methodology that help both the implementer and the customer.

FAQs on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 High Availability

by Hemantgiri S. Goswami | January 2011 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

The term High Availability means that the servers or systems that host or run the business-critical applications should be highly available - 24 X 7 and 99.99% up time. As the word itself defines how important it is to make these applications and data available for end-users as well as business users, if this data is not available for a short time, it will be a big problem for both sets of users. Imagine a bank spread across the country and having a huge customer base faces a situation when, their server crashes! If the bank relies only on backups, then it might end up losing approximately 15 to 30 minutes of data, depending on the backup strategy. Now the HA options related to SQL Server such as Clustering, Replication, Log Shipping, and Database Mirroring will help overcome this situation.

In this article, we will find answers to the frequently asked questions on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 High Availability.

Microsoft Forefront UAG: Preparing, Creating, and Publishing an HTTPS Trunk

by Erez Ben-Ari Ran Dolev | January 2011 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

Just as we like to organize everything in life into containers, UAG also does the same. As a user of Microsoft products, you are probably used to files or programs that are grouped together within folders and which are stored on hard drives (or hard drive partitions). With UAG, there's one little difference, the primary organizational units are called "Trunks", and in those we create (or "publish") applications, and we can also group them in folders too.

In the previous article by Erez Ben-Ari and Ran Dolev, authors of the book Microsoft Forefront UAG 2010 Administrator's Handbook, we discussed UAG's building blocks—Trunks and Applications.

In this article we will see how to prepare, create and publish an HTTPS Trunk.
