Product Review: Nuxeo Content Repository

Nuxeo, headquartered in New York City, is a software company specializing in content management. Their Enterprise Content Management (ECM) products provide solutions for document management, digital asset management and case management. Nuxeo operates using an open source model designed to develop and grow with users’ changing content management needs.

“Nuxeo’s architecture is way more flexible and powerful than any other platform on the market. The extension points architecture, and the native integrations provided by the Nuxeo Platform allow organizations to build custom and scalable applications to manage their digital context, even the most complex, rich and unstructured content.” – Eric Barroca, CEO

Three transformations in ECM have changed the needs of customers in recent years: datasets composed of complex objects instead of flat metadata, a larger variety of content and delivery types, and a larger magnitude of size and throughput. Older ECM systems are not able to adapt and evolve with their modern datasets. Nuxeo’s platform, composed of various components including its Content Repository, Cloud Native, and REST API, offers better solutions that legacy ECM systems.

Nuxeo’s content repository allows users to import and manage data and documents like never before. There are several repositories integrated into one application operating on the Nuxeo platform, and the use of multiple repositories allows users to import up to one billion documents at one time. Instead of this process taking weeks on traditional platforms (or not being feasible at all) the Nuxeo platform and content repository speed this process up to a mere 12 hours.

Multiple Repositories

The repository has several key features highlighted below that allow for easier searching, more adaptable storage systems and increased security. Nuxeo’s content repository is designed so that it and the Nuxeo platform can be flexible and adaptable to the ever-changing data that users are exposed to. It is also designed to be extensible and interface with cloud storage systems like Google Drive and Dropbox. The repository is capable of handling data and documents in a variety of formats (e.g. files, Big Data), and it can integrate these data so that they can all be used for final output. Additionally, the content repository (as well as other platform features) has the ability to scale independently and horizontally to avoid bottleneck formation.

Principal differences with the competition relate to Nuxeo’s capacity to gracefully handle data model changes without breaking client compatibility, underlying core technology for scaling, and delivery unmatched throughput. Along with the very modular architecture and development patterns allowed.
