As Darwin once said – it is not the strongest of the species, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change. Same applies to businesses. Today’s technologies are accelerating at an exponential rate, producing unprecedented change that is disrupting the traditional ways of doing business – while the old approach moved at the speed of human coders, the new one progresses at the speed of data, information and self-assembly.
Ok, to be fair it’s not just OpenText that has this problem, pretty much all ECM systems have their quirks when it comes to administration. Lets find out more about how Fastman has addressed some of the common frustrations…..
Content Server is not a bowl of cereal, it’s a grand banquet held every day of the month, month after month, year after year. A banquet that manages your core business information – privacy, confidentiality, compliance and all that.

In our business lives sometimes we laugh at what we do, sometimes we cry with frustration, and sometimes we know we must to simply get on with it. If things aren’t going as we planned we can all be heard (or seen) asking ourselves why we’re still at it. Other times we don’t need to ask; we know that we enjoy doing what we do.
One of my team mentioned to me this morning that OpenText turned 20 in June, which made me stop and realise that it’s also 10 years since we did our first Livelink / Content Server deployment. For a couple of reasons it’s a good time to reflect over that time.
Can it only be 150 years since Darwin published On the Origin of the Species and in doing so cemented a fundamental change in how we understand the world came to
be as we know it now? 150 years – an infinitesimally small fraction of a single raindrop of the storm that has been the history to date of our world.
You know, over the last few months we’ve had several companies approach us unsolicited and unexpectedly. Some are referrals from partners and some are referrals from other clients, and some simply find us on the interweb.
By tuning the core platform and aligning it with individual business needs, Fastman improves user adoption and radically changes the way organizations use OpenText Content Server.
