Trusted Edge, Inc. and Open Text Corporation said they will partner to deliver software solutions that extend records and retention management capabilities beyond central document repositories, capture content saved on desktops or shared network drives, and dispose of expired information wherever it exists. The solutions will simplify and automate the retention and disposal of documents across the enterprise, so that companies can improve compliance, reduce litigation exposure and enhance knowledge management. The companies will initially target customers in financial services, healthcare and the public sector, and plan to start introducing solutions in the second quarter of 2005. The targeted solutions will monitor previously unmanaged content for compliance and allow quick access to files for discovery purposes. The solutions will extend the retention process to the desktop, enabling complete lifecycle management and offering true digital disposal of information.,
