The Content Repository (CR) used within KDM Force Content Process Management platform is fully compliant with the Java Content Repository (JCR) Level 2 Specification. JCR is the acronym of the JSR 170: Content Repository for Java technology API, a new standard that prescribes the methods through which content repositories and applications should interact to deal with content in the CR. This API focuses on transactional read/write access, binary content (stream operations), textual content, full-text searching, filtering, observation, versioning, handling of hard and soft structured content. The CR is structured in one or more independent hierarchical structures of files and folders named Workspace Tree.
Process Management Engine
KDM Force Process Management Engine is a Business Process Management (BPM) technology aimed to support the entire content lifecycle within organizations, automating and streamlining business processes, and ensuring compliance.
KDM Force Process Management Engine also enables organizations to design and modify ideal business processes efficiently and cost effectively, in order to increase the speed of everyday growing business demands in accordance with regulatory requirements as well as improve employee productivity by streamlining the business tasks
The KDM Force Process Management component provides a powerful foundation for orchestrating interactions between KDM Force products and applications. It supports SOA and is interoperable with all of the J2EE-based integration technologies including Web Services, Java Messaging, J2EE Connectors, JDBC, and EJBs.
The platform is provided with a high-performance, full-featured text search engine written entirely in Java, based on Open Standard Technology and provides business users, secure access to all information through a familiar search and navigation interface, regardless of the source, location, and structure of the content.
The search engine integrates structured, unstructured and rich media content into a virtual intelligence library to improve enterprise agility and to lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Search method is extended on the default metadata set and on all version history. Result lists are enriched with a score indicating the match of the results with the search criteria.
Information Security and Administration
The Information Security and Administration component manages the security of the Content Repository (CR) with a Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) approach that determines the exact amount of permissions over the CR that is to be granted or denied to every specific user.
RBAC manages security via two main policies: (a) by defining permissions to users defined only on the Information Security and Administration component itself (stored in SQL) without any integration to an external source of users' profiles; (b) by importing the Information Security and Administration component from an external source such as a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server, eventually enriching such integration by implementing Single Sign On (SSO).
The intuitive user interface lets users upload files, create, modify, and arrange documents and all other types of files in folders just like working from the computer desktop. Users can share files with collegues or business associates and just as easily can create and organize multiple layers of folders replicating a file server structure.
The platform's easy to use interface minimize user training and support costs, eliminates software or hardware maintenance and allows to get started in just minutes.
User management provides great flexibility while configurating the content management application based on the KDM Force Content Process Management platform. User management allows an Administrator to grant each user specific permissions over the Workspace Tree or part of it therefore, information inside the Content Repository can only be browsed by those with specific rights to "read" and modified by those with the rights to "read and write".
