windream GmbH Presents Current Version 6.5 of the windream ECM System

February 22, 2017 | Bochum. – windream GmbH will be presenting the current version 6.5 of its Enterprise Content Management System windream at this year’s CeBIT from March 20 to March 24.The version features, for example, a Sidebar that allows you to perform typical ECM tasks directly from your desktop. windream 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.

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.

A listing of the current subscriptions of a user is possible as well. Additionally, desktop applications can be started via the Sidebar even with optional transfer of templates (e.g. Microsoft Word), as well as scripts. The individually adjustable sidebar is a great advantage for users.

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 and offers even more search options than before. That especially includes an intelligent support during searches over time periods.

Redesign of the Configuration Module

The Cofiguration 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 with REST-Architecture, WCF and JSON

The latest generation of the windream Web Service now uses the highly modern REST technology (REST = Representational State Transfer). It is, in the windream ECM Context, used 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. JSON represents a compact format for electronic data exchange. windream uses the professional API-Framework Swagger UI in this context, which allows user to test self-developed interfaces that are based on REST-architecture.
