FileNet Connector 

Document management with IBM FileNet Content Manager helps you meet the growing challenge of managing enterprise content with greater speed, efficiency, and accuracy.

FileNet Content Manager is a document management engine that combines enterprise content, security and storage features with ready-to-use workflow and process management capabilities.

Our IBM FileNet Content Manager Connector allows SharePoint, as well as other portal users, to securely search for content stored in FileNet repositories.  Access to content is determined by security established in FileNet, ensuring that your content is as safe when accessed through any other portal as it is directly within FileNet.

This capability makes SharePoint Search, Azure Search, and Elasticsearch true Enterprise Search. 

IBM Connectors for SharePoint

This connector supports both full crawls and incremental crawls:

  • Full crawls request and index all desired content from FileNet
  • Incremental crawls request and index only content which has changed since the last crawl

Our IBM FileNet Content Manager Connector addresses key requirements as follows:

  • 1
    Works with unstructured content and structured data.
  • 2
    Works with large documents, attachments, and complex systems with a customer-configurable schema.
  • 3
    Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput.
  • 4
    Minimizes the impact on the performance of the source system.
  • 5
    Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.
  • 6
    The source system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers).


Future-proof Your Investment

As new versions of Azure Search, Elasticsearch, and SharePoint Search are released, new features and functionality are introduced, and the same is true of new releases of IBM FileNet. BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for both IBM FileNet and the respective search engines. The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is simply a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release, and installing and configuring it. If desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
