Hummingbird Ltd., a provider of integrated enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, and Venetica, a provider of enterprise content integration (ECI) software, have announced a strategic technology partnership, under which Hummingbird will leverage Venetica technology to enable their business solutions to incorporate content from external systems. As part of the announcement, Venetica will create a Content Bridge to Hummingbird Enterprise 2004 DM, so customers can incorporate Hummingbird-stored content into applications built upon the VeniceBridge platform.
The integration with Venetica is expected to allow Hummingbird users to integrate Hummingbird business solutions with third-party content management systems, enabling a real-time virtual view of content from within their business applications. Venetica's VeniceBridge enables users to work with content managed by multiple, disparate sources. Users can access multiple repositories from a single interface, offering the ability to have a simultaneous interactive session with multiple content repositories. With VeniceBridge, Hummingbird plans to provide its customers with an integration platform that connects Hummingbird solutions with their existing content management systems, providing the capability to either access content in place or move selected information to a specific Hummingbird business-focused repository.
