Collaboration, Delivery, and Automation



Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Documentum, Inc.

    NEW YORK, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Documentum (Nasdaq: DCTM), the leading
 provider enterprise content management solutions, today announced enhancements
 to the Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform that greatly improve its functionality
 for global e-business and strengthen its underlying XML capabilities. These
 enrichments make Documentum 4i the leading choice (Forrester Research
 eBusiness TechRankings release 3/26/01) for content management among
 enterprises that depend on global interaction and collaboration. To achieve
 success worldwide, organizations ultimately must tear down linguistic and
 geographic borders to address the pressing need to win and retain customers.
     Awash in information from within and outside their organizations,
 companies today need an enterprise-wide content management infrastructure that
 enables them to automate the production and exchange of trusted content within
 and between organizations on a global scale. Over the last year, Documentum
 has fulfilled its vision of creating a common content framework that can be
 established enterprise-wide, yet deployed by specific initiatives. The company
 introduced specific packages, called Editions, that quickly solve a company's
 most pressing content needs, built on the foundation of the 4i eBusiness
 Platform. Documentum -- with the support of its partners and growing developer
 community -- continues to fine-tune the platform to offer customers even
 greater efficiencies.
     Advanced XML technology is at the heart of Documentum's content management
 platform, making the infrastructure work seamlessly, powering the platform,
 and extending the infrastructure beyond corporate walls to include global
 partners and divisions.  Physical and linguistic barriers are shattered,
 paving the way for accelerated global e-business success.
     Documentum's breakthrough content management platform has been adopted by
 over 1,100 Global 2000 enterprises enabling them to attract and service
 customers, speed delivery of products to market, mobilize e-business networks,
 enabling collaborative exchanges with partners; and improve cross-organization
 relationships. In addition, Documentum has formed strategic partnerships with
 more than 300 technology and service partners to ensure the platform
 continually offers the technological innovations customers need. Further
 underlining Documentum's leadership position; the company has also:
 
     -- Powered a single Web site receiving over 10 million hits per day
     -- Licensed more than 4 million seats
     -- Benchmarked a platform that handles more than 100 million content
        objects
     -- Supported nearly 3,000 registered developers, who are building
        applications on Documentum 4i
     -- Achieved a single sale of nearly 160,000 seats
     -- Expanded its Asia Pacific business with major investment in new offices
        and employees
 
     In recognition of its growing market leadership, Documentum has received
 numerous third-party awards and distinctions for product excellence, from
 Technology of the Year from InfoWorld to ranking first among 12 content
 management vendors in Forrester Research's latest eBusiness TechRankings.
 
     Enhancements to the 4i eBusiness Platform include:
 
     -- Universal Language Support -- The platform can now be used by nearly
        any company, using any language in the world allowing multinational
        companies to share, collaborate, exchange, find, and deliver
        multilingual content between divisions in different countries.
     -- Fault Tolerance -- This feature safeguards productivity and prevents
        revenue losses and security breaches that result from system failures
        and downtime, ensuring customers remain active regardless of hardware
        reliability or maintenance.
     -- Connection Pooling -- Multiple users can be pooled into a common
        connection with the 4i content repository. Shared connections take less
        time to connect and require much less RAM and system resources, which
        reduces network load.
 
     The enhanced platform also offers greater workflow features, single field
 searching capabilities, data dictionary performance enhancements, LDAP and NT
 domain authentication, developer enhancements, and administration features
 that lower total cost per user.
