Hummingbird Ltd., a developer of enterprise information management systems (EIMS), announced that it is extending its strategic technology alliance with RedDot Solutions, a provider of enterprise content management solutions. Hummingbird will resell and distribute the RedDot Content Management Server (CMS), providing customers with tightly integrated Web Content Management (WCM) capabilities to complement their investment in the Hummingbird Enterprise document management and portal technologies.

"The strong integration of RedDot's Web content management capabilities with the Hummingbird Enterprise suite of information and knowledge management solutions further strengthens our leadership in the smart enterprise suite market," said Andrew Pery, chief marketing officer, senior vice president, Hummingbird Ltd. "By integrating the Hummingbird and RedDot solutions, organizations will get the maximum value from their Web publishing infrastructure, eliminating disparities between document and content repositories to effectively and efficiently manage full content life cycle from creation, review and Web site publication to retention and ultimate disposition."

In early 2003, RedDot released CMS 5.0 featuring new workflow capabilities and enhanced integration of the Hummingbird document management technologies. As a result, many organizations have become mutual customers of RedDot and Hummingbird to leverage the high degree of synchronization between the two products, shared repositories and bi-directional mapping of meta data.

"Content management is the core infrastructure that all organizations must have to succeed in a Web-centric business world," said Mark Gilbert, vice president and research director, Gartner Inc. "Gartner has seen WCM evolve and mature significantly during the past three years with key enterprise issues focusing on better integration and maximizing the value of their WCM investments. Vendors offering a complete integrated solution as represented by the smart enterprise suite understand the changing WCM market and the impact of technology convergence."

RedDot CMS and Hummingbird DM offer customers an out-of-the-box integration of the two complementary technologies. With this integrated content management solution, customers can create, repurpose, and store all forms of content in their Hummingbird document management repositories, eliminating redundancy and the need to maintain content in separate locations. The combined solution helps organizations to rapidly and consistently produce various Web properties with enhanced quality, relevant content, and consistent navigation – while comprehensively managing source content through its entire life cycle.
