CAMBRIDGE, MA--Aug 22, 2002 -- IBM today announced the availability of new Lotus collaborative document management software to help customers manage important corporate documents and reduce the risk of mishandled business information. Lotus' new version of its Domino.Doc software (version 3.5) can help organizations proactively capture, store and securely and appropriately manage the information contained in corporate documents, including email messages. According to industry experts, executives rank content management as the second-highest technology priority this year. Document management, imaging and workflow are core technologies that deliver value under the content management umbrella*. Lotus Domino.Doc accelerates the decision-making process by enabling organizations to easily find, access and re-use the content being created within their organizations, which provides a competitive advantage and an increase in corporate productivity. In addition, Lotus Domino.Doc seamlessly integrates with leading corporate e-mail platforms, enabling the capture of critical information housed in electronic attachments and text messages. "As a company, we need to make sure our employees have access to the most recent versions of important documents to ensure that our position and messages are consistent and disseminated efficiently and effectively to legislators, policy makers and the public," stated Jon Black, Policy Analysis Manager at Texas Utilities (TXU), a Dallas-based energy company. "Domino.Doc provides our employees with a central repository for this information. The ability to integrate e-mails and attachments in the new version of the software will be valuable for companies." "Up to 50 percent of corporate intellectual capital is stored in e-mail messages or attachments," said Antony Satyadas, Business Leader, Knowledge Discovery Solutions, IBM Lotus Software. "Incorporating this information into a document library not only facilitates the dissemination of knowledge throughout a company, but also helps ensure that organizations can produce these records quickly and easily. Immediate access to accurate data is essential to staying competitive in today's business arena."
