Great news from Lee Dallas reporting from the Documentum Developer Conference: Documentum Developer Edition is back and now runs on PostgreSQL. I discussed this a few months back and I thought that maybe EMC didn’t have the stomach for something so technical, but I was wrong. So kudos to EMC.

Lee mentions it’s not yet production ready, so hopefully that is in the pipeline. After that how about certifying it to run on Greenplum, EMC’s massively scalable PostgreSQL. Then the sky is the limit for large-scale NLP and machine learning tasks. For example last year I wanted to run a classification algorithm on document content to identify certain types of document that couldn’t be found by metadata. There are plenty of other uses I can think.Β 

I’ll be downloading the edition as soon as possible to see how it runs.
