Acartus Releases ApertureONE for Documentum

Acartus today that ApertureONE for Documentum will be released next week. ApertureONE is a scalable solution that facilitates the storage, retrieval, and distribution of high volume computer output. The integration allows Documentum customers to leverage their existing Documentum repository for computer generated documents and reports. The result is the elimination of printed reports, microfiche, and multi-part forms plus the cost associated with distributing these legacy media. ApertureONE captures computer-generated output from multiple enterprise applications, and converts it to PDF. Searchable attributes are automatically extracted based on pre-defined templates and loaded into the Documentum Content Server along with PDF renditions of each document. This integration enables Documentum customers to eliminate COLD (Computer Output to Laser Disc) systems, previously used for archival or distribution of enterprise report content. ApertureONE for Documentum on the Windows and Solaris platforms will be generally available November 15, 2003. Pricing starts at $37,500 per server, with no additional client license required. www.acartus.com
