IXOS SOFTWARE AG and Open Text announced the IXOS 6 Suite, an ECM platform that will enable corporations to securely and compliantly manage, archive, and retrieve enterprise content. The IXOS 6 Suite, with its capabilities for meeting regulatory compliance, will become a key part of both companies’ ECM solution portfolios, designed to address the full spectrum of enterprise requirements, from content creation through final archival and disposition. IXOS 6 Suite delivers an integrated, modular solution set for ECM strategies based on a core repository architecture. At the core of this architecture is functionality that provides a single point of access to all structured data and unstructured data within an organization. The IXOS 6 Suite central repository system enables companies to store content, along with its metadata in one place, so enterprises can share content across applications including SAP, Siebel, PeopleSoft, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange and MS Sharepoint, etc., regardless of whether the application is running on individual desktops. The IXOS 6 Suite will be generally available in May. www.ixos.com, www.opentext.com
