Open Text Corporation, an independent provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, announced an expanded Web content management (WCM) strategy which includes the integration of RedDot Solutions' software with Open Text's Livelink ECM - Web Content Management Server. The integration will create a comprehensive offering that ties WCM into a customer's broader ECM strategy to improve business processes, reduce costs and manage compliance.

"There's no question today that Web content management has to be factored into a company's ECM strategy," said Mark R. Gilbert, research vice president at Gartner, Inc. "With more content and more sites to manage, Web content will become increasingly tangled with the broader information management demands in large organizations. In order to be successful, companies need solutions that can scale for the enterprise and they need tighter integration with ECM capabilities."

The integration will bring together the power of RedDot's easy-to-use WCM and delivery capabilities with Open Text's Livelink ECM suite, using the back-end server capabilities of Livelink ECM - Web Content Management Server.

RedDot's products, including CMS, LiveServer and XCMS, are known for their ease of use, fast implementation time and sophisticated contextual delivery features. RedDot customers find great success in managing multiple sites, delivering personalized content and producing multilingual sites, all within an environment where business users are empowered to create, manage and deliver content.

RedDot's software will now be integrated with the ECM functionality in Open Text's Livelink ECM suite, including document management, records management, business process management and collaboration. Livelink ECM - Web.

Content Management Server will also enhance RedDot with powerful content server capabilities, including advanced clustering, which can scale globally and offer tight integration with leading enterprise application servers, such as SAP NetWeaver, IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic and Oracle 10g. The solution also supports content integration with standard back-office ERP applications.

Open Text's roadmap with RedDot includes the following:

The first phase of integration will include the ability to access and publish content maintained in Open Text's broader Livelink ECM suite using RedDot. Customers building websites using RedDot will also be able to integrate Livelink ECM collaboration features such as discussions or opinion polls in their Web site designs. Available in early 2007.

The second phase includes a complete, single server platform with enterprise scale clustering and distribution, and simplified server configuration.
