    RESTON, Va., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- With the help of Applied
 Information Sciences, Inc. (AIS), a leading Microsoft Managed Gold Partner,
 Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 been successfully tested against
 the DoD 5015.2 records management standard by the Department of Defense
 Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC).
     As part of their commitment to pursue compliance standards in the
 industry, Microsoft selected AIS to help develop and extend MOSS 2007 to
 include the DoD 5015.2 records management certification. Microsoft teamed
 with AIS because of their deep knowledge of the DoD 5015.2 certification
 requirements and their 25 years of professional software engineering
     "AIS's reputation and track record in the field of software engineering
 gave us every confidence in choosing them as a partner to co-develop and
 test this important new capability," said Rob Barker, Sr. Program Manager,
 Information Worker Product Marketing Group at Microsoft.
     Development of the DoD 5015.2 certification add-on pack was made
 possible by the ease of connecting and extending the rich features and
 functionality of SharePoint 2007 to meet the complex requirements for DoD
 5015.2 compliance. AIS was able to develop every aspect of the solution
 using the standard SharePoint extensibility points -- like the SharePoint
 Object Model and SharePoint Workflows -- along with native SharePoint 2007
     "This is a great example of how we can leverage MOSS 2007 as an
 application platform for building rich web-based business applications for
 our customers," said Russ Stalters, CTO of Portals and Collaboration at
     Managed by the Joint Interoperability Test Command of the United States
 Department of Defense, the DoD 5015.2 Standard is a well-known industry
 standard that sets the bar for records management applications in the
 enterprise content management (ECM) industry. The standard offers
 guidelines for how records and permissions should be managed, the
 automation of periodic review of vital records, the management of e-mail as
 records, and the ability to support multi-phase lifecycle management for
 documents that require more- complex retention rules. When choosing a
 records management solution, many companies and other organizations in
 highly-regulated industries will only consider a DoD 5015.2 certified
