Quick round-up on document management systems news…

• Following our report last time about OpenText announcing Microsoft Office 2010 integration, we've had a couple of legal IT directors and vendors get in touch to say “Actually Autonomy iManage did beat OpenText to Office integration”. However OpenText say “No, we were first” and also check out this link – www.advdoc.com/blog/archives/140#comment-1266 – which seems to suggest that Worksite 8.5 SP2 doesn't help much in practice

WorkSite 8.5 SP2 was released in mid-October, and in theory supports
Office 2010. But a simple install with Office 2010 gave me no
integration at all – it behaved just like WorkSite 8.5 (no SP) in terms
of errors and lack of integration.

AND the Sword/Lewis Silkin Sharepoint DM presentation on Thursday 13th January in London will also now include a brief session by Tony DeCerce on the potential of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 as a document management system.
