Documentum Introduces Architecture, Partners with IBM

Documentum, Inc. introduced its Open Content Architecture (OCA). The OCA framework is a fundamental part of the extensible Documentum 4i platform and allows customers to power any enterprise or e-commerce application with live, trusted content. Addressing the speed, flexibility and rich feature requirements demanded by eBusiness initiatives, Documentum 4i’s open architecture enables companies to leverage existing technology investments and implement new technology. Documentum’s Open Content Architecture integrates with eBusiness technologies through a series of Live Content Adapters. There are several Live Content Adapters already available for enterprise and desktop applications including Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange, SAP R/3 and PeopleSoft. The next Live Content Adapters that Documentum will make available will integrate key e-commerce platforms and Web application servers, such as IBM’s WebSphere, BEA Systems’ WebLogic, the Broadvision One-to-One family of eBusiness Applications and ATG Dynamo. In addition, Documentum is developing Live Content Adapters for popular Web authoring tools, such as Microsoft FrontPage and Macromedia Dreamweaver. Documentum also announced that as part of the IBM PartnerWorld for Developers Program, Documentum will integrate IBM WebSphere with its Documentum 4i solution and will receive co-marketing support for the solution from IBM. www.documentum.com

IXOS-Archive 4.0 with XML Access Available

IXOS SOFTWARE AG announced the immediate availability of IXOS-ARCHIVE 4.0, the new version of its Business Document System (BDS). Announced in October of this year, IXOS-ARCHIVE 4.0 incorporates Java and XML technology and provides an extended range of services. Additionally, the IXOS-DocuLink component enables users to access business transactions and related documents in off-line mode. With IXOS-ARCHIVE 4.0, groupware users can now be integrated in business processes in their familiar application environment. IXOS-ARCHIVE 4.0, in conjunction with the IXOS-DocuLink module, enables users in off-line mode to manage business documents from every conceivable origin, within the SAP R/3 infrastructure. In IXOS-ARCHIVE 4.0, XML is used to assign business document attributes, which represent information and metadata in a system-independent form. This means that documents can be extracted out of the SAP R/3 context and can be retrieved via XML-capable browsers. Incorporating this global standard helps all IXOS customers leverage their investment and allows them to link their archiving system with their e-business applications. IXOS-ARCHIVE 4.0 is now available in English and German language versions. Other international language versions are intended for delivery in two months. www.IXOS.com
