This IBM Redbooks publication deals with IBM DB2 Content Manager implementation and migration. It is aimed at architects, designers, developers, and system administrators of Content Manager systems.

We cover the basic concepts needed to design and implement a Content Manager solution. This includes topics on data modeling, workflow, text indexing and search, application development, query language, security, and Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) overview. In addition, we cover the solution implementation process from planning and designing, to deployment. To put concepts into real practice, we provide practical case studies to demonstrate how to implement a Content Manager solution for real-world scenarios.

We also deal with IBM DB2 Content Manager migration. This includes migration on Multiplatforms, for TSM, and for Content Manager custom applications. In addition, we describe an approach and process for special migration scenarios such as cross platform migration and migration from a third-party product.

Once a Content Manager system is implemented or migrated, it is important to maintain the system. We discuss maintenance, performance tuning, and troubleshooting issues for a production Content Manager system.
