It's Tyrel Jennings from Memorial University of Newfoundland again. Thanks for all the feedback on my initial thread about our CMS search. Many of the responses were very useful.
We have continued our CMS search and are have almost come to an official recommendation for the school. However, other university executives outside of the search are still pushing Documentum as the CMS we should choose (we have previously written off Documentum some time ago in our search). Apparently, some form of EMC Documentum WCM is included with the Luminis portal (a software bundle purchased earlier this year by another branch of the university). So, we essentially already have Documentum. However, basically all secondary information I have gathered emphasizes the same thing; Documentum is difficult for developers and is impossible for non-technically trained end-users.
So what I'm asking is for anyone to share any experience they have had with Documentum, as a developer or an end-user. Is it really that difficult to develop and/or use? Is it more powerful than the rest of the CMS solutions on the market? Would you recommend it over an open-source product like Drupal or Plone! or over an 'out-of-the-box' solution like Day CQ, Hannon Hill, or OmniUpdate? Thanks for you consideration.
