Arbortext, Inc. announced the release of Extend, a set of software and services that support Application Service Provider (ASP) deployment of its XML-based e-Content management system. Arbortext has identified FutureLink to help implement the rollout of Extend. Server-based computing services offer customers reduced cost of ownership and deployment time, faster scale-up, increased flexibility, more widespread access and tighter security. Additionally, companies who have people located throughout the organization or in multiple locations now have the ability to collaborate as if they were working in the same office. Extend enables companies to utilize Arbortext software who might otherwise be unable to do so because of out-dated equipment, lack of technical support, or cost of ownership. Arbortext’s software can either be hosted on its customer’s servers or on a third-party Web hosting service, and is accessible using a standard browser or a thin client. The software runs on a variety of desktops, including Windows, Macintosh, DOS, UNIX, Java and OS/2 Warp.,
