OpenText Content Suite and Extended ECM Version 16 EP7

OpenText is pleased to announce the release of OpenText™ Content Suite 16.2.10 EP7 and OpenText™ Extended ECM 16.2.10 EP7. The Content Suite and Extended ECM platforms are from now on completely containerized for an improved provision and handling of implementations.

Innovations of the Extended ECM Platform 16.2.10

Version 16.2.10 provides important updates for intelligent automation and asynchronous processing.

  • Event Action Center automates content-driven processes by automatically starting actions and eliminating manual tasks to increase efficiency and reduce errors.
  • Event Action Center automatically creates a scheduled processing job when a business administrator configures the new process mode to run asynchronously in the action plan.
  • Event Action Center uses the scheduled processing job queue to process mass events asynchronously, providing greater autonomy and automation of content-driven actions.

Asynchronous processing

  • New process mode: when saving the action plan, the Scheduled Processing Framework automatically creates a preset job named Event Action Center.
  • Substantial changes to this preset job may only be made in the Event Action Center (Smart View).
  • Intelligent search functions are now applied to duplicated events.
