IXOS Extends Email Management and Compliance Solutions for Lotus Notes

Jan 30, 2004


IXOS Software, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM), has announced the extended functionality of its Lotus Notes solutions to help enterprises handle business-critical communication more effectively. IXOS' upgraded solutions for the Lotus platform are designed to provide seamless integration with Lotus Notes 5 and 6, while adding compliance capabilities to ensure reliable archiving of digital messages, improve organizational performance, and minimize the risks associated with regulatory requirements.

Built on IXOS' platform for ECM, the upgraded email management solutions will enable organizations running Lotus Notes to manage email within one content repository and to meet the regulatory requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, SEC 17a-4, Basel II, and GoB with regard to email retention. The solution delivers secure document archival, user authentication, and document distribution capabilities, and can manage documents in a live system from creation through to disposition.

ILM features include: fine-grained, document-level retention policy to control the cycle of selected email; full-text support through integration of Convera to provide access to all email and attachments; archiving on write-once, read-many (WORM) media to meet compliance requirements; automatic and interactive archiving out of email and application databases; offline support for remote access to information while traveling and not connected to corporate networks; linking important emails to business processes in SAP or Records Management applications to meet compliance regulations.

In addition to meeting compliance requirements and ILM needs, IXOS Solutions for Lotus Notes addresses storage and cost issues relative to email. IXOS Solutions for Lotus Notes help minimize space requirements by using optical media to consolidate and store digital messages on any media from cost efficient hard disk and tape to non-rewritable, non-erasable format on CD, DVD-R, or WORM media. E-mail solutions for Lotus Notes 5 and 6 with compliance features will be available in Q3, 2004. Pricing is based on solution components and number of seats.
