For our document content management system, our company is currently using Documentum and moving to SharePoint. I am disappointed with the application of both of them. Documentum is the backend for our ancient fulfillment system and we use eRooms to save other files. it's difficult to find anything in either of those systems. I have heard SharePoint is supposed to be better, but I have also heard we are using it wrong by setting it up with the typical file folder structure. That's about all I can offer.
