Permissions Manager recently went through a significant upgrade. The latest release, 16.10 (or 10.10 if you are still running Content Suite 10.5) introduces many changes that have been requested by users.

One of the reasons why Smart UI fascinates me is the way Design Patterns are used. As you explore Smart UI code you encounter many of these patterns. But what is a design pattern and why use them?

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…..
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 Suite deployment. For a couple of reasons it’s a good time to reflect over that time.
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 Suite.
