Helping Software Vendors Build Their Businesses

Every company faces different document and knowledge management challenges. Microsoft Windows NT and BackOffice is the fastest growing platform for document and knowledge management solutions and is enabling innovative software vendors to build their businesses by delivering feature-rich software to their customers.

DOCUMENTUM and Microsoft announced a strategic alliance to deliver enterprise integrated document management solutions in targeted industries based on the momentum of Microsoft Windows NT.

“In 1995, DOCUMENTUM was a $25 million software company with 100 percent of our shipments on UNIX. We just ended a $25 million quarter with 60 percent of our software shipping on NT servers,” said Jeffrey A. Miller, president and CEO of DOCUMENTUM. “This is a reflection of the market adoption of both DOCUMENTUM and Microsoft innovative technology and solutions. We see Microsoft BackOffice as a strategic development platform today and well into the future.”

Digital Equipment Corp., Eastman Software, FrontOffice Technologies, Keyfile Corp. and Staffware Corp. are building solutions based on Microsoft Exchange Server to provide their customers with powerful document management, collaboration and workflow functionality to their messaging infrastructure.

“Keyfile is not surprised at all to see the market momentum shift in Exchange’s favor. In 1995, we bet on the fact that Exchange would ultimately dominate the market and that is paying off for us handsomely,” said Roger Sullivan, vice president of Marketing, Keyfile Corporation. “Our installed seats of Keyflow for Microsoft Exchange Server have doubled each of the past five quarters.”

Documentum, Eastman Software, FileNET Corp., NetRight Technologies, Inc., and PC DOCS, Inc., are adopting Microsoft Site Server 3.0 as a preferred platform for delivering intranet solutions that companies can use to dramatically improve corporate knowledge management.

“Microsoft Site Server provides a strong infrastructure that application software vendors can build on,” said Jeetu Patel, vice president of research of Doculabs, an independent research and advisory firm. “For example, leveraging SiteServer will enable document management systems to manage Web content and Web sites, not just internal documents.”
