Interest in Composite Content Applications has been climbing higher over the recent years due to the rising need around enabling business process improvements and addressing challenges around business process agility. Such applications can deliver substantial value by leveraging both content and process services for the better orchestration of people and processes and empower organizations to automate routine tasks and aggregate information from multiple sources in a collaborative work environment that enables rapid decision making. In this whitepaper, we have introduced Case Management and its relationship with ECM, the essential functionalities in a Case Management Product stack and expanded on leading vendors in this space along with the salient features of their case management offerings. Subsequently we have built on a sample case scenario of building a contracts management application using EMC Documentum xCelerated Composition Platform (xCP), the business needs and challenges that a well-designed Contracts Management application can address, a real-life application of xCP platform to build such a solution and the observations on the strengths and limitations of this platform, along with a few workarounds to address the limitations.
