Documentum announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire privately held records management vendor TrueArc Corporation. In the all-cash transaction for TrueArc stock, Documentum will pay approximately $3.6 million. Documentum will not issue any of its common stock in this transaction. The acquisition is expected to close later this quarter, after the appropriate legal approvals have been finalized and customary closing conditions met. Documentum and TrueArc are existing technology partners. Their current integration, currently sold by TrueArc, provides the ability to implement records management and retention rules for Documentum customers. After the acquisition closes Documentum will deliver a new version of an integrated offering, updated with the latest releases of both products, compliant with the DoD 5015.2 records management standard. www.TrueArc.com, www.documentum.com

Context Media Introduces Intershare, a Web Services Client

Context Media, Inc. announced the release of Intershare, a Web Services software client to provide organizations universal desktop access to enterprise content. The new software client — which works in tandem with Context Media’s Interchange Suite — gives users the ability to access and use content stored in commercial or homegrown content management or digital asset management systems. Content access is enabled by simply clicking the “Open File” or “Insert File” command and importing content to the desktop. Intershare is a compliant implementation of SOAP 1.2. SOAP acts as the communication layer for the access and exchange of information between Context Media’s products. Intershare presents an enterprise-wide content catalog on the user’s desktop, with seamless point-and-click accessibility. To the user, accessing enterprise content is the same as accessing a shared file system or disk drive on a local computer. For example, a user working in Microsoft Office PowerPoint can use the “Open File” or “Insert File” commands to directly import a graphic stored in separate, disparate content management systems, such as Vignette or Interwoven, without leaving PowerPoint. The user needs to have no knowledge or understanding of the ECM/DAM storage system, its location or operation. www.contextmedia.com
