Interwoven and DataChannel announced an alliance to integrate DataChannel’s Enterprise Information Portal Server, DataChannel Server (DCS) 4.1 with TeamSite 4.5, Interwoven’s content management platform. The integration will bring together the critical functions of content management and content presentation and interaction. The companies have also agreed upon a jointly developed road map that tightly couples the unique functionality of their respective products. The combined offering will serve two classes of users, content contributors and the targeted users who access the final version of that content. First, TeamSite content authors and editors will now be able to access critical TeamSite software functionality, including TeamSite Templating and metadata tagging, through a consolidated and personalized application interface via DataChannel’s Enterprise Information Portal. Participants in the content management process will also be able to see their workflow action items and timelines in their own personalized “queue.” To enable this, all TeamSite users will be automatically logged-on to TeamSite through an intelligent DataChannel Xpertlinx when they authenticate through DCS. This single sign-on capability will provide direct authentication to personalized TeamSite workspaces. Secondly, the joint solution will impact the targeted users who access content in its final form. The DataChannel Enterprise Information Portal provides access to content that is targeted to specific user needs. It also optimizes a user’s interface to the numerous sources of information found throughout the enterprise and across the Internet. DCS creates the taxonomy, or organized layout, for content that is then appropriately tagged and published directly from TeamSite into the DCS portal.,
