eRoom Connector for SharePoint 

Digital workspaces with eRoom help you manage cross-functional and cross-company collaboration with flexibility and control.

eRoom is one of the leading online project collaboration systems, is part of the EMC Documentum Content Management family, and remains popular due to its flexible room and folder architecture.  It is formally named EMC Documentum eRoom.

Our eRoom Connector for SharePoint establishes a secure connection to the eRoom application and maps the content, including metadata and attachments, from the eRoom schema to the search engine schema.  It then extracts content and feeds it to the search engine in a process called crawling.

eRoom Connectors for SharePoint

To provide the highest performance and the latest information, this connector supports both full crawls and incremental crawls, which extract only content which has changed since the last crawl.

Key benefits of our Documentum eRoom Connector for SharePoint:

  • 1
    Works with unstructured and structured data.
  • 2
    Indexes at a very high throughput.
  • 3
    The crawling process does not impact the performance of the source system.
  • 4
    eRoom security is particularly tricky because the room owner can delegate security; this is fully supported by our connector.
  • 5
    The search index has only a representation of the content kept in eRoom. When a user clicks on a search result they will be working on the original item or document.


Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365

With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of the eRoom Connector for SharePoint. BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both eRoom and SharePoint. In addition, the eRoom Connector for SharePoint also supports O365 through the Cloud SSA. In fact, we support current versions of SharePoint, including 2010, 2013, 2016, and Office365.

The upgrades can be done by your IT organization. It is a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release and installing and configuring it.  Or, if desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades
