Documentum Introduces XML Enterprise Content Management Platform

Documentum announced the release of the next generation of its 4i eBusiness Platform. The release features significant enhancements, offering complete support of XML for content management and B2B interchange, as well as full internationalization and multilingual support, automated delivery of content to multiple channels, and integration with industry-leading source code management systems. XML content management provides the basis for streamlining the content creation process by enabling content reuse and automating the generation and delivery of assembled content for multiple channels. This is achieved by adding intelligence to content earlier in the process and separating the creation and delivery processes. Content can now be re-purposed rather than re-created and intelligently transformed and customized to suit the characteristics and formats of different devices and channels (e-commerce sites, portals, PDAs, wireless devices, and online exchanges/marketsites). Full lifecycle, workflow, security, and library services enable organizations to automate their business processes, and sophisticated link management services enable the reuse of content globally. Documentum is actively involved with XML e-business standards organizations, such as OASIS, ebXML, UDDI.org, WAP Forum, and XML.org. Documentum and Arbortext also announced an extension of their partnership integrating Arbortext’s Epic. www.documentum.com

Enterprise Content Management Conference Series Launched by AIIM, GCA, & Bluebill Advisors

first Enterprise content management conference

Bluebill Advisors, Inc., AIIM International, and the Graphic Communications Association (GCA) announced “Enterprise Content Management 2001” (ECM 2001), a new conference series covering all the technologies and trends related to integrating content and data into enterprise e-business applications, including: content management, (CMS) corporate portals, XML, digital rights management, digital assets, rich content, syndication, content aggregation and categorization, e-catalogs, enterprise meta and metadata integration strategies, and application and information integration. The three organizations will jointly produce the new events. The first three-day conference will be held October 2-5, 2001 at the Westin Century Plaza in Los Angeles, CA. Today, businesses have to be able to publish content via multiple channels, including Web, wireless, kiosk, and print, but publishing is only a small part of how enterprises must manage content. Content also has to be shared with suppliers, customers, channel partners, and employees, for a wide variety of enterprise applications. ECM 2001 is the only educational event dedicated to all the application and infrastructure technologies for managing content across and between enterprises. ECM 2001 is an educational, vendor-neutral event designed specifically for e-business and IT managers responsible for developing strategies involving content management, and for project managers in charge of implementing solutions. www.aiim.org, www.bluebilladvisors.com, www.gca.org
