Leverage diCarta's Market Leadership



Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Documentum, Inc.

    PLEASANTON, Calif., and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ --
 Documentum (Nasdaq: DCTM), the leading provider of Internet-scale enterprise
 content management solutions for powering e-business applications, and diCarta
 Inc., the award-winning leader of Internet-based, business-to-business
 contract and revenue management solutions, today announced a strategic
 partnership to increase their reach in the B2B marketplace. As part of the
 agreement, diCarta will integrate Documentum 4i B2B Content Management Edition
 with diCarta Contracts(TM), a B2B contract lifecycle management solution.
 Documentum will OEM its content platform to diCarta to increase its foothold
 in the contract management market, expected to grow to more than $3 billion by
 2005 according to analyst estimates.
     The partnership reflects an initiative by Documentum to target specific
 B2B market segments and extends an earlier joint marketing agreement signed in
 February 2001. By combining Documentum 4i B2B Content Management Edition with
 diCarta's collaborative contract management solution, Global 2000 customers
 can facilitate, across the enterprise and beyond, the management of all
 contract-related content.
     "We chose to partner with Documentum because they are the leader in
 enterprise content management enabling us to leverage the existing investment
 our customers have in Documentum through content creation and reuse in the
 contract process," said Sanjay Gupta, vice president of business development
 for diCarta. "By integrating Documentum 4i B2B Content Management Edition with
 our collaborative contract management solution, we can now facilitate content
 collaboration between all parties involved in developing and maintaining a
 contract. This includes all the related content and catalogs (such as product
 specifications, engineering drawings, etc.), whether those parties are
 internal to the enterprise or external customers, partners or suppliers. As a
 result, our customers will be able to optimize the entire contract management
 process, enabling them to reduce costs, improve efficiency and enforce
 contract compliance."
     "As we recently announced (Documentum B2B Content Management Edition
 release 3/22/01), Documentum is making a significant commitment to capturing
 an increased share of the growing B2B marketplace by partnering with leading
 solutions providers in specific market segments, such as collaborative
 contract management," said Jay De Walt, vice president of partner initiatives
 for Documentum. "We chose to partner with diCarta after looking at a number of
 contract management vendors because of the company's complete solution,
 leadership role and first-mover advantage. With our shared target markets, a
 common B2B market vision, and our respective industry leadership positions,
 Documentum and diCarta have created a win-win situation for both companies.
 More importantly, we bring additional value to our joint customers with the
 capability to extend their contract-related business processes beyond the
 enterprise, while leveraging existing content for better and more automated
 contract management."
     "diCarta's selection of Documentum's newly announced 4i B2B Content
 Management Edition is clear evidence that the platform is enjoying rapid
 acceptance among emerging leaders in the B2B application space as a standard
 for B2B e-commerce," said Balaji Yelamanchili, vice president of products for
 Documentum. "In fact, the native XML capabilities, robust process automation,
 mature development environment, and scalable repository make Documentum 4i B2B
 Content Management Edition the only content platform worthy of infrastructure
 status."
