Gauss announced the worldwide availability of VIP Enterprise 8, the company’s Enterprise Content Management (ECM) suite. The J2EE-based software suite fully integrates ECM’s primary point solutions — Web content management, portal development, as well as document management and business process automation. Gauss invested 16 months and $20 million to unify Web content management and portal development technologies with document management and process automation workflow capabilities. VIP Enterprise 8’s modular architecture supports the deployment of the full suite, or individual modules incrementally over time. In addition, VIP Enterprise’s architecture scales from department to globally distributed, cross-enterprise scenarios.
