Documentum Introduces eContent Services for Portals

Documentum, a provider of enterprise content management, has announced the release of Documentum eContent Services for Portals, a portal-specific component of the recently announced Documentum Web services initiative. Documentum eContent Services for Portals reduces the need to create new programming interfaces and integration code for enterprise portal implementation. Building on the enterprise content-management strengths of the Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform, these services employ off-the-shelf portal components called Documentum eContent Portlets to create a fast and cost-effective way to expose content-management functionality through an enterprise portal, according to the announcement.

Documentum eContent Services for Portals combines eContent Portlets with documentation and integration examples that enable portal vendors and customers to deploy content-management services through portals. According to the company, this capability facilitates the convenient management and delivery of structured and unstructured content beyond the firewall. Documentum eContent Services for Portals allows developers to transform enterprise portals into dynamic hubs for content-driven business processes such as real-time contract negotiation, supply-chain management, and global project management.

"Portal builders will no longer need to guess which integrations to build, how to build and test them, how to localize them, or how to scale them to a large number of users. With Documentum eContent Services for Portals, these questions are already answered," said David De Walt, Documentum's president and CEO. "For our portal-building partners, Documentum eContent Services for Portals are designed to help speed and streamline integration, reduce time to market, accelerate the realization of revenue, and improve customer satisfaction."
