IBM Daeja ViewOne Virtual HTML5 Viewer

The free IBM document viewer that may cost you more in the end.

IBM Daeja ViewOne Virtual viewer is a free HTML5 document viewer software from IBM for IBM applications. It is designed for IBM FileNet P8 to display various types of documents, including PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, and image files. While it may seem like a useful tool for viewing and modifying documents, there are several reasons why it may not be the best option for businesses.

1. Limited Compatibility

One of the main issues with IBM Daeja viewer is its limited compatibility. It will only integrate with IBM Content Navigator so you are limited to using only IBM ECMs as your backend repository. Additionally, you can’t use a frontend from a third-party or home grown, it must be developed within IBM Content Navigator.

2. Legacy IBM File Format Issues

Another problem with IBM Daeja viewer is its inability to display legacy IBM file formats. While it can open many file types, it can’t display AFP and MO:DCA file types, and Content Manager annotations from eClient and pClient viewers. This can create productivity and other workflow issues, which can result in financial losses.

3. Limited collaboration capabilities

IBM Daeja Viewer also has limited collaboration capabilities. While it does allow for viewing and annotating documents, it does not offer permission-based collaboration, meaning that you cannot restrict annotation features, show/hide annotations by other users, and apply redactions to a document based on user permission levels. This can be a major issue if you need to share secure documents with others.

4. Lack of Mobile Support

In today's digital age, mobile support is essential for any software. Unfortunately, IBM Daeja viewer does not offer advanced mobile support, which can be a significant disadvantage for users who need the ability to access and modify company documents on the go or in the field.

In conclusion, while IBM Daeja viewer may seem like a useful, free document viewer, unfortunately it has several significant drawbacks that make it a less than ideal option for most companies. Its limited functionality, compatibility issues, lack of mobile support make it a poor choice for businesses who are looking for effective document viewer for their applications that may actually cost more money in the long run.
