M-Files Partners with FileFacets to Enable Direct Data Access to Key Business Systems
M-Files, a provider of information management software, has announced a partnership with FileFacets.
FileFacets specializes in data discovery and content search for structured and unstructured data across corporate networks, servers, content management systems, email, desktops and laptops.
M-Files is partnering with FileFacets to provide connectors to external systems via the Intelligent Metadata Layer (IML) available with M-Files 2018. IML delivers a unified interface that allows users to access and manage documents and other information stored in business applications and repositories, including network file folders, ECM and CSP systems, file sharing services, CRM and ERP systems and more.
In addition to providing direct access to data in these systems, M-Files can enrich it with metadata to establish context and relevance, such as a relationship to a customer, project or case, and enable information management capabilities, such as version management, advanced security permissions, check-in/check-out, workflow and collaboration.
With M-Files 2018 and the Intelligent Metadata Layer, the need to migrate massive amounts of documents is eliminated, said Mika Javanainen, VP of product management at M-Files. It allows businesses to use connectors to the applications that are most important to them, and get access to all their content and data without migration and without disturbing existing systems and processes, and the users that depend upon them.
Connectors available with M-Files 2018 and IML based on FileFacets technology include OpenText Content Server, Laserfiche, IBM FileNet, Documentum, eDocs, and iManage.
