Extend and Enhance your IBM Content Manager 8, FileNet P8, CMOD, and ImagePlus ECM Solutions

Many organizations rely on IBM’s ECM solutions for their document management needs due to their robustness and scalability. MST provides viewing and document conversion solutions that are 100% compatible with all IBM ECM solutions. From Content Manager ImagePlus, to Content Manager OnDemand, and to FileNet P8. Our viewers can also be integrated with non-IBM ECMs to provide IBM MO:DCA and annotation support, or IBM FileNet annotation support.

MS Technology, based in Charlotte, NC, has provided IBM with its imaging and annotation viewers and SDKs since 2001 for many of their ECM solutions. Whichever IBM ECM solution your organization currently uses, MS Technology can provide your organization with the tools and expertise to either extend and enhance your IBM ECM, provide IBM document and annotation support with Non-IBM ECMs, or assist with migrating to any other ECM solution.

eViewer

The eViewer HTML5 is our powerful and versatile zero foot-print viewer that can be integrated with IBM Content Manager ImagePlus for viewing and annotating multiple formats including TIFF, JPG, PDF, MO:DCA and many more. It is a high-performance document viewing solution that enables user to view documents and images from a desktop or any mobile device including Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and Android devices. Several organizations including State and Federal government agencies, logistics and financial companies have integrated the eViewer with IBM Content Manager ImagePluson the iSeries / AS400.

File Format Support

The eViewer not only supports the MO:DCA and TIFF files currently stored in the IBM Content Manager ImagePlus ECM, but it also supports additional formats including Microsoft Office documents, PDF, CAD, and many others. With all the additional file formats supported, your organization can extend the functionality of the IBM Content Manager ImagePlus.

Annotations

The eViewer can display and is 100% compatible with existing ImagePlus annotations. Display and update existing ImagePlus annotations along with creating new ImagePlus annotations with the eViewer. Not only will your users have the ability to create annotations provided by the standard ImagePlus IWPM, but they will access to additional annotation options to greater enhance the abilities of your users.

Extending Functionality of ImagePlus

The eViewer provides your users with all the same great features as the IBM ImagePlus IWPM provides but more. The eViewer can provide you users with these great features:

  • More file formats supported
  • Document Capture from the eViewer
  • More Document Manipulation Tools
  • Smart Automated Redaction
  • Automatically compare two versions of the same document
  • Great integration capabilities with workflow and BPM applications
  • And more…

REPLACING THE IBM pCLIENT

The MST Viewer does not replace the IBM pClient “out-of-the-box” but provides APIs for your developers to be able to directly integrate it with IBM ECMs or develop your own pClient replacement application. The following is a document of a basic implementation overview of how the login and searching of documents can be implemented to work with IBM ECMs.Click here.

MST Batch Converter SDKs

When moving to a different ECM platform, typically the need exists to migrate the unexpired legacy documents (scanned images, PDF documents, COLD reports, etc) and associated indexes to the new document archive. Format conversions, e.g. from MO:DCA to PDF may be required for the new environment. The MST Batch Converter SDKs can help make this transition easier for your organization. The MST Batch Converter SDKs can be deployed directly on the IBM mainframe allowing all conversion to happen on the server without having the data leave your organization’s data center.

File Format Conversions

The MST Batch Converter SDK can ingest many of the file types stored and that originated on IBM mainframes, such as all MODCA types and can convert them to PDF, PDF/A or TIFF. The SDKs extract fonts and other resources from the corresponding libraries on the iSeries / AS400 in order to precisely convert these file types to maximum semblance to the originals.

Annotations

The IBM ImagePlus annotations can be extracted and delivered in a format that is compatible with a more versatile format. The annotations can be “burned” directly into the image files or superimposed on PDF and TIFF files.
