I got notified that tomorrow I'm gonna start a porting project from a FileNet ecosystem.

Well, I don't know what is FileNet, but at least I've enough time to study its architecture. Let's start from the official IBM page:

The FileNet® P8 platform offers enterprise-level scalability and flexibility to handle the most demanding content challenges, the most complex business processes, and integration to all your existing systems. FileNet P8 is a reliable, scalable, and highly available enterprise platform that enables you to capture, store, manage, secure, and process information to increase operational efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.

Thank you IBM, now I surely know how to use FileNet. Well, I hope that wikipedia explains me what it is:

FileNet is a company acquired by IBM, developed software to help enterprises manage their content and business processes.

Oh my god. I tried searching half an hour so far and everything I found was just advertisements and not a clue about what it is.

Then they wonder why I hate IBM so much

    How does [technology] work? Who cares, when it's a scalable, distributed, secure, enterprise-level, robust, highly available, batteries-included, blockchain-based platform powered by deep learning and neural network algorithms that allows businesses around the globe to make the world a better place!

    FileNet is an ECM (enterprise content management) platform.

    I don't really know what that means. That's about all I know from when I used to do tech support at a company that used FileNet.

    Good luck.

    @EmberQuill "ECM" makes me think some NAS-type shit...

    EDIT: it "applies workflow filters to processes on launch." Sounds like a program filter?

    That all sounds great, but I wonder if it's scalable to the enterprise-level?
