- D2, a configurable application originally bought from C6
- xCP, an application composition platform made by EMC engineering
D2The functionality that D2 offers is mostly geared toward Document Centric Applications. It has lots of features in that area. For things like mailroom or personnel file applications, D2 can quickly get results.
xCPxCP has been created with Case Management Applications in mind. It really shines when used for loan applications, insurance claims, or court case management for instance.
Future directionThough the best-fit for D2 and xCP is still pretty clear at the moment, I wonder what direction they will be taking. Both products will be actively developed for the near future. There are other things to consider however.
What about mobile Apps used on smartphones? They are showing up on wish lists more and more often. The official Documentum Mobile App has never gained much traction, since users don't want a big general application. On their smartphone they want small specialized applications to perform a specific task quickly and easily. Approving a document for instance. The good news is that EMC is investing in mobile application technology to enable businesses to easily create such apps.
