Stikeman Elliott

Stikeman Elliott Has a Single View into Enterprise Content using OpenText eDOCS Integration for Microsoft® SharePoint® by SeeUnity Inc.

SharePoint content consolidated into a centralized system to help streamline matter management

We decided that the best approach would be to leave the plumbing, which is OpenText eDOCS DM, in the back end and let it continue to do the job that it does so well, which is managing the documents, security, version control, etcetera. Keep that in the back end, and then simply expose the documents in collaborative workspaces in the SharePoint front end.
