We proposed a solution based on Documentum D2, an intuitive and configurable content-centric client for Documentum. The main benefit of this approach was to capitalise on the existing PMI Documentum platform and competencies.
We began the project by providing some recommendations for upgrades to the existing platform and by defining the disaster recovery strategy policies. Then, we created detailed technical specifications and a solution design based on the customer’s user requirements.
The project construction phase was divided into three parts. The first consisted of D2 product configuration using an iterative methodology based on the detailed technical requirements. In the first iteration we delivered common content management functionalities: the technical foundation. Next iterations focused on functional requirements for each of the business units. We executed a total of 12 iterations, one for each business unit. The project’s second phase was a Documentum platform upgrade. We delivered a full Documentum and D2 qualified platform, and reusable components for future Documentum-based projects. Then third phase focused on quality assurance. Using our field experience in validated environments, we provided all of the deliverables expected by the qualification of the solution in collaboration with Philip Morris’ IT and QA teams.
We are currently working on new business functionalities: document publishing and records management.
