IBM buys FileNet for $1.6bn

A few news tidbits about IBM buying FileNet for a rather vast amount of $$$:


*Ed Brill

The new versions of FileNet seem much better than the previous versions but you still can't help thinking its over complicated - you've got the FileNet components, BEA WebLogic, Verity, SQL, Apache, IIS and LDAP. A problem with any one companent can mean big problems for the system as a whole.

Don't get me wrong - FileNet does cool stuff - you get a web front-end and an Office integration component providing basic DMS services along with workflow and records management features.

I wonder where this leaves Domino Doc ?

It'll be interesting to see what IBM does with this . . .
