ApplicationXtender 8.0, Technically Speaking

ApplicationXtender (AX) 8.0 is now available. This is the upgrade we've all been waiting for, especially myself. AX 8.0 offers a sleek new interface, some sweet new features and better performance. This is an evolutionary leap forward that positions the platform for rapid adoption into mainstream processing flows. AX 8.0 represents the first step on the road towards pervasive content. We used to say with AX you could access any document, anytime, anywhere. With AX 8.0, content is now available from any device as well. And, EMC has announced a raft of additional enhancements that should take the AX suite well into the future.

Included in EMC ApplicationXtender 8.0 are the following enhancements:

  • Redesigned user Interface, built on AngularJS and MVC.NET
  • Full-featured, zero footprint HTML5 Image Viewer
  • Consolidated administration console
  • Tablet-friendly browser support
  • Improved license management
  • Enhanced session management
  • New REST API
  • CAS/SAML support using ADFS 2.0
  • New capture module (REST-based client)

We are predicting that most AX customers will want the new interface as soon as they see it. That's a good thing, but... Will you be ready?

To better help you prepare for the daunting task of upgrade requests from your entire user base, I will be hosting a series of webinars in the coming weeks starting on October 23rd. Each week we'll focus on a different topic with new feature highlights, as well as tips and tricks to make the transition to ApplicationXtender 8.0 as painless as possible for all parties involved. Sign up for one or all sessions today!
