CeBIT 2017

windream Presents the Current Version 6.5 of the windream ECM System

At this year’s CeBIT, taking place from March 20 to March 24, 2017 in Hanover, the current version 6.5 of Enterprise-Content-Management-System windream will be introduced. Version 6.5 features, for example, a Sidebar that allows you to perform typical ECM tasks directly from your desktop. 6.5 also offers an extended search application with additional search options, as well as a completely newly designed configuration module. The exhibition program is completed, like every year, by presentations of the co-exhibiting windream partners. Interested visitors may find the stand of windream GmbH in hall 3. The Stand number is: J20.

The New Sidebar in the windream 6.5 Business Edition

Part of the windream Business Edition 6.5 is a completely newly developed Sidebar. It is designed as a desktop application and can be used as a central “Cockpit“ for managing documents, workflows and all tasks connected with ECM specific document management and business processes.The new Sidebar allows windream users and administrators to integrate important and frequently used ECM and BPM functions into the Sidebar. The functions integrated into the Sidebar can be started directly from the desktop of a windream computer. Typical “Sidebar jobs “are, for example the display of a list of most recently edited documents, the display of the index information of a document, the entry of search terms for performing a fulltext search and access to workflows in windream BPM. The Sidebar also allows users to select documents and move them to a so-called “Drag Zone“. This way, the documents are stored in windream conveniently and are indexed via the properties dialog. Individual document collections such as “My Documents” or business processes under “My Workflow” can be displayed and edited. Via the integration of specific workflow tasks, the Sidebar informs the user, for example, about processes of auditing while simultaneously displaying the status of applications for leave.

Even More Convenient Find Function

The windream find function offers even more possibilities and even higher convenience. The navigator search known from windream version 6.0 – the “Smart Search Navigator“– was optimized in detail an offers even more search options than before.

Redesign of the Configuration Module

The Configuration Module in windream 6.5 has visually been redesigned and been improved in its handling. The layout is designed close to the look and feel of the current Microsoft operating system Windows 10. In the future, the configuration module will offer a plug in concept to the user. This way, for example, the settings of self-developed windream links can conveniently be integrated into the windream configuration module.

Technical Basis: The Next Generation of the windream Web Service

The latest generation of the windream Web Service uses highly the modern REST Technology. In a windream context, it is used specifically to allow cross-platform access to a windream system, for example with mobile devices via the windream Mobile App. On the basis of the REST technology, the windream Web Service in windream 6.5 and higher uses the JavaScript Object Notation Format (JSON) to display resources and contents.
