Adobe and Documentum Expand Alliance To Create Business Process Management Solutions

Tuesday, April 08, 2003

Press release from the issuing company

SAN JOSE, Calif.--April 7, 2003-- Adobe Systems Incorporated, the leader in network publishing, and Documentum, the leading provider of enterprise content management (ECM), today announced a strategic alliance to develop business process management solutions for the enterprise. As a result of the expanded alliance, the two companies are working to integrate the Adobe Form solutions with the Documentum ECM platform to automate and manage document-intensive business processes across all major regulated industries, including financial services, manufacturing and government. Businesses and governments are suffering from inefficiencies associated with paper-based processes that aren't currently automated. Adobe and Documentum are working together to address the challenges of managing the information flow between documents, forms and business processes throughout the extended enterprise. "Global companies turn to Documentum to provide a full range of content management functionality in a single, scalable platform," said Rob Tarkoff, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for Documentum. "Together, Adobe and Documentum provide enterprise solutions that ensure the secure, reliable delivery and exchange of information across the extended enterprise. Our combined leadership in enterprise content management and document integration will let our customers further accelerate and extend business processes to realize increased operational efficiencies." Organizations are looking for solutions that help them increase productivity, improve data accuracy and lower costs through enhanced control and management of critical information and documents. For example in the financial services industry, increasing demands from customers for self-service options for processes, such as completing loan applications and opening bank accounts, are driving organizations to create solutions that integrate documents with business transactions. "Adobe and Documentum are experts at integrating document-based processes and content, enabling organizations to engage in unique customized workflows with more secure and reliable document exchange, across a wide range of platforms and devices," said Ivan Koon, senior vice president, ePaper Business Unit at Adobe. "Our joint customers will reap the benefits of intelligent forms integrated with a unified enterprise platform that supports content and collaborative initiatives across the extended enterprise. This is an exciting step in the continued relationship between our two companies."
