Interwoven Inc., a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based developer of enterprise content management applications, is purchasing XYZFind Corp., a Seattle-based provider of Extensible Markup Language database technologies. XYZFind's applications are designed to enable enterprises to organize XML content for easy access, to quickly identify content elements to reduce redundancy and promote efficient content retrieval. The tools will support Interwoven's Content Discovery Framework. The framework is an architectural layer that leverages metadata provided by Interwoven's MetaTagger 3.0 application and XYZFind technologies. It allows users to access, tag, store and retrieve enterprise content regardless of its format or where it is located, Interwoven says.

Other key business benefits from using XYZFind technology within the Discovery Framework includes the ability to organize, access and reuse rapidly growing amounts of unstructured content, and to improve search engine accuracy by delivering powerful structured query services over XML, Interwoven notes.

As part of the acquisition, XYZFind co-founder Bob Lord will join Interwoven as a senior architect. Lord will focus on semi-structured content storage and management.
