ESPS, Inc. (d/b/a. Liquent) announced a partnership with Software AG, Inc. This partnership will offer U.S. companies a scalable XML content management solution designed to meet their mission critical e-business needs. The partnership is underpinned by a mutual referral agreement that will enable Software AG and Liquent to be actively involved in marketing the combined solution. The combined solution resulting from this partnership will leverage Liquent’s Xtent technology and Software AG’s Tamino product line, providing an infrastructure consisting of an XML transformation engine, XML database and other supporting tools. Companies utilizing this solution will be able to automatically retrieve both structured and unstructured content from their existing data and content repositories, and utilizing Liquent’s Xtent engine transform the content into XML that is base-lined into the Tamino XML database. Companies can then utilize this baseline to meet their ongoing requirements to search, assemble and transform critical information for consumption by employees, customers, partners and electronic systems.,
