    How can Share point server 2007 be integrated with other content management solutions like Documentum or Stellent.

    How can the content from other CMS solutions be rendered using SPS 2007

    some pointers would help me to understand better


  2. 2 vijay August 24, 2007 at 6:23 am

    I my view answer for above question would be to use some data integration tool. And integration of sharepoint with other ecm solutions would happen through database storage.

    I understand that SharePoint 2007 with its DoD 5015.2-addon includes a “digital shredding” feature at no extra cost.

    Is this also true of SharePoint 2007 out-of-the-box?

    Thank you.
