FileNET and BEA Systems Form Strategic Technology Alliance

Dec 20, 2002

FileNET Corporation has formed a technology alliance with BEA Systems, Inc. to develop and market integrated content and process management solutions designed for use with BEA WebLogic Platform 7.0, which features a J2EE application server combined with development, portal, and integration frameworks. Under an enterprise license agreement, FileNET will deploy and use BEA WebLogic Server as its premiere development, test and demonstration platform. This is intended to be an important partnership for FileNET as many future products will be J2EE-based. FileNET's ECM platform combined with BEA's robust Java-based application infrastructure software will be designed to offer customers a process-centric solution that makes content accessible throughout the enterprise. FileNET's Web Content Management (WCM) capability currently integrates with BEA WebLogic Server, allowing Web applications deployed on the BEA platform to access content created and managed in the FileNET Web Content Management system. Under the new agreement, FileNET will expand its relationship with BEA to integrate the entire FileNET ECM suite with the BEA WebLogic Platform. The combined solution will be designed to automate the delivery of enterprise content to applications built on BEA WebLogic Platform, and to provide a unified framework for creating, managing, and approving content accessed via enterprise portals.
