Documentum announced the general availability of Documentum 4i B2B Content Management Edition. This new Edition provides a standard, integrated content management platform that enables rapid development and deployment of content-rich B2B applications across a common content framework. At the heart of this edition is the XML-enabled eContent Server. Enhanced by Engagement Services, Syndication Services, Collaboration Services, and Documentum Developer Studio, this edition extends the production and exchange of content among and between organizations. The 4i eContent Server, designed for global scalability, provides content repository services, native XML component management and robust process automation. Documentum XML capabilities enable storage, validation and transformation of B2B XML schemas, including popular electronic marketplace schemas, such as cXML, and xCBL. Engagement Services is an ebXML-ready multi-protocol server that extends process automation and workflow across trading networks, enabling secure inter-enterprise content exchange. Syndication Services is a tightly integrated content distribution facility for publishing content directly from one or more repositories to an unlimited number of subscribers. Collaboration Services provides real-time project-based collaboration between employee and partner teams across the extended enterprise. And, for rapid development of content-rich B2B applications, Developer Studio is a mature development environment with a comprehensive API set compatible with all popular Web-based development standards. Now, catalog management applications can integrate structured catalog information (such as pricing and SKUs) with rich unstructured information such as images, product descriptions, datasheets, maintenance and operating manuals. In addition, with the new B2B Edition capabilities companies can accelerate product availability to market by enabling suppliers to directly maintain and manage their catalog content. On-line Contract management and strategic sourcing applications can now manage the content lifecycle around contracts, proposals, and quotations. Finally, collaborative commerce applications can exchange rich content and engage partners during design, marketing and sales cycles gaining increased time-to-market advantage.
