Objective ECM Connector

Objective ECM Ingestion Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise

Objective Electronic Document Management (EDM) Objective ECM takes information management to a new level, providing Objective users with a seamless user experience when interacting with content and business processes. It manages any kind of information object, including word processing and spreadsheet files, presentation software, drawing packages, images, workflows, databases, emails, audio, video, CAD applications and more, throughout the entire document lifecycle. Its features include support for virtually any type of authoring software, linking between documents and other objects, version-specific linking, multiple document registration, indexing, templates, approvals and many other features. It is heavily used within a very secure environment.

The BAI Objective Connector for Elastic is an ingestion connector that lets users search for content within Objective and find relevant content securely.

Elastic is a widely used search engine that is starting to take a foothold for implementation of intranets and internal portals. When the Objective Connector is deployed, users can search the information contained within Objective and the system will adhere to the user privileges/security settings that have been established within Objective.

The BA Insight Objective Connector was specifically developed for Objective, establishing a secure connection to Objective and mapping the content including metadata from the Objective schema to the search engine schema.

Our Objective Connector addresses key requirements that are challenging to implement through custom solutions:

  • Works with unstructured content as well as structured data. Large documents, attachments, and complex systems with customer-configurable schema are typical.
  • Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput. Many BA Insight customers have millions of documents or even hundreds of millions. Just 1 million documents indexed at 1 document/second would take over 11 days for a full crawl!
  • Is light touch, minimizing the impact on the source system without impacting the performance of the source system.
  • Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.
  • The source system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). Users expect to click on a search result and be working on the original item or document.

Future-proof Your Investment

As new versions of Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise are released, new features and functionality are introduced. BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for Objective ECM updates and the Elastic search engine. The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is simply a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release, and installing and configuring it. If desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
