    PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Documentum (Nasdaq: DCTM), the
 leading provider of Internet-scale content management solutions for powering
 e-business applications, today announced its Open Source Code Integration
 (OSCI) that will empower Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform users with the
 ability to manage source code objects required for complex Web pages in the
 same repository as their content. Under OSCI, Documentum maintains its open
 standards approach and partners with providers of Software Configuration
 Management (SCM) software who will develop the interfaces required for
 seamless integration of SCM solutions with Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform.
     "OSCI demonstrates Documentum's on-going commitment to bringing additional
 value to its customers," said Dave De Walt, president and chief operating
 officer for Documentum.  "Integrations developed under OSCI enable Documentum
 4i eBusiness Platform users to leverage existing investments in SCM solutions
 when creating the complex Web sites their strategic web operations require. By
 merging both content and source code objects in a central Documentum 4i
 eContent Repository, companies can streamline Web site creation,
 personalization, and administrative tasks, while developers can store and
 re-purpose source code for leverage across multiple applications.  This not
 only saves companies time and money in managing their Web content, it
 specifically enables them to easily leverage more types of content for faster
 time to Web."
     SCM tools are designed to facilitate intensive development efforts by
 large teams of programmers, but they are not optimized as run-time
 environments for dynamic web content management. By managing source code
 objects within the run-time focused content management environment of
 Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform, companies will be able to dynamically manage
 these code objects together with content and publish them both, concurrently,
 to the Web using Documentum WebPublisher and Site Delivery Services. This
 comprehensive approach to Web site object management reduces site development
 costs, reduces time to market, and provides centralized and simplified Web
 page management.
