FileNET Corporation announced its support for Universal Application Network – a standards-based, vendor-independent application integration solution – launched by Siebel Systems, in conjunction with other application software vendors, integration server vendors and systems integrators. FileNET plans to provide out-of-the-box connectivity between FileNET ECM and Universal Application Network. Based on XML and Web Services standards, Universal Application Network enables organizations to integrate applications such as FileNET’s ECM solutions, and helps organizations avoid being locked into vendor-specific architectures. FileNET and Siebel Systems will deliver an enhanced integrated solution that combines the best practices drawn from both Siebel Systems’ business process library and FileNET’s approach to Enterprise Content Management.
