Integrates Content Distribution Technology With Documentum Enterprise Content
Management Platform One Quarter After Boxcar Software Acquisition
PLEASANTON, Calif., June 17 -- Documentum, the leading provider of enterprise content management (ECM), today announced the availability of Content Distribution Services (CDS). Based on the next-generation technology from Boxcar Software that Documentum acquired in the first quarter of this year, CDS extends the Documentum platform by automating and controlling the distribution of enterprise content to any number of subscribers, including customers, distributors, affiliates, marketplaces and business partners. CDS, which is completely integrated with the Documentum ECM platform, enables companies to easily create any type of content offering and automatically distribute it, to any destination, using any transport protocol. Using CDS, the content distributor can allow recipients to subscribe to content through an offers-based model and set the method of content delivery, including scheduled, events-based or on demand. Documentum enables organizations to give users the content they want, when they want and need it.
CDS is fully integrated with the Documentum platform, allowing current Documentum customers to immediately take advantage of CDS functionality without any additional integration efforts. The new CDS product is targeted at Global 2000 organizations that need to regularly distribute content -- either print or online -- to targeted audiences, and is especially well suited for financial services, transportation, media services businesses, and semiconductor and other product manufacturers which frequently send communications, such as newsletters, reports, catalogs and product information.
"The Yankee Group chose Documentum's Content Distribution Services to ensure that our valued customers have the latest research at their fingertips," said Dan Bryant, vice president of operations and information technology, The Yankee Group, a global leader in technology research and consulting. "Allowing customers to customize how they want to receive information from us enhances our competitive advantage. We look forward to offering new and different services as a result of this solution."
"Documentum's Content Distribution Services offers great value to organizations looking to ensure its customers, partners and suppliers receive, and have access to, the most accurate content, especially in a company such as ours that manufactures and distributes many new products," said Mark Sonst, staff software engineer, Fairchild Semiconductor International, one of the largest global suppliers of power products for multiple end markets. "CDS provides numerous cost efficiencies and could be used across numerous initiatives throughout a company."
