Many companies are finding ways to unlock value from the content they create. Knowledge about your business and your customers hides in customer communications, reports, transcripts, presentations and beyond. Often this content is spread across every corner of an enterprise, disconnected and siloed. So there is significant need and desire to quickly deploy an IBM content platform to better manage all of this unstructured data. But how can you achieve ROI quickly?
Now you can deploy an IBM content platform in minutes instead of hours or weeks. With the IBM FileNet Content Manager, the IBM Content Navigator and IBM Case Manager Docker containers, you can drive better scalability, resiliency, manageability and upgradeability of IBM content platform components. Here’s how.
The use of Docker and containers continues to rise across many businesses, recently increasing by 40 percent in the last year alone. Docker containers provide the ability to develop, build, test and deploy code to production faster. When we combine Docker containers with a Docker orchestration platform like Kubernetes, the emerging industry standard for container orchestration, we get out-of-the-box scalability, resiliency, ease of management, monitoring and a host of other capabilities.
IBM content services containers inherit these capabilities and are built for the cloud. IBM content services containers leverage WebSphere Liberty, a cloud-native application server. WebSphere Liberty’s small footprint makes content platform containers more portable. Additionally, Liberty can provide your team with dynamic runtime configuration as well as custom application deployment.
IBM content platform containers include open source monitoring components such as collectd, logstash and filebeat for metrics. It also features logging that can be integrated with IBM Cloud monitoring and logging services or other equivalent cloud services.
Bottom line: you can choose to deploy and run IBM content platform containers anywhere you manage a Docker engine: on-premises, in your public cloud or across your hybrid cloud.
