Centra and Hummingbird Partner

May 13, 2003


Centra Software, Inc., a provider of application software and services for real-time enterprise collaboration (RTEC), has partnered with Hummingbird Ltd., a developer of enterprise information management solutions (EIMS), to integrate Centra's collaboration capabilities into Hummingbird Enterprise through Hummingbird's document and content management product, Hummingbird DM, and portal solution, Hummingbird Portal. The integration is intended to enable organizations to launch Centra's real-time, online collaboration application from the same central locations that they use for other integrated information and applications. Hummingbird DM is a content management platform that enables knowledge workers to receive information when and where they need it. Hummingbird Portal is a Web-based workspace that ties applications and information together to complete the 360-degree view of enterprise content. Both products are components of Hummingbird Enterprise, a suite of integrated information and content management products designed to accelerate and refine business processes across the extended enterprise. Centra's enterprise application provides collaboration solutions for sales, marketing, human resources, information technology, and other departments across the enterprise that need to take advantage of more efficient and cost-effective business communication over the Web. CentraOne brings together voice, video, data, and graphics in interfaces for Web conferencing, meetings, and virtual classrooms that can be deployed onsite or accessed through a secure ASP. Centra's solutions are available in 13 language editions and in 29 countries worldwide. Under the terms of the agreement, both companies have agreed to cooperative sales and marketing program participation. Hummingbird expects that the integrated offering will be available for customers by September 2003.
