Provenance & Intranet Solutions to Provide Web-Content Records Management

Provenance Systems, Inc. and IntraNet Solutions, Inc. announced a partnership to deliver an integrated solution for managing Web content and records. With this agreement, Provenance Systems and IntraNet Solutions provide a combined solution to government and commercial sectors that effectively manages Web content and the lifecycle of each associated record. Provenance’s latest product, ForeMost Enterprise Enterprise makes it possible, easy, and affordable to provide a scalable records management infrastructure. Once deployed, it captures official business records from a variety of sources, such as e-mail, electronic document management systems, and Web sites. E-Businesses create records at a staggering rate, and though regulated industries, for example, have strict legal and business requirements for managing records, previously they could neither categorize nor manage such documents over the Internet. With Provenance’s experience in records management and IntraNet Solutions’ Web- content management capabilities, the two companies together solve the problem of preserving Web content as official records. Additionally, Provenance and IntraNet Solutions are pursuing certification of ForeMost Enterprise and Xpedio to meet the Department of Defense Design Criteria Standard for Electronic Records Management Software Applications (DoD 5015.2-STD). This standard outlines mandatory ERS software requirements for all DoD agencies. www.intranetsolutions.com, www.provsys.com
