IXOS Integrates into SAP Knowledge Management Capabilities

Apr 30, 2004

IXOS Software, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, has announced that its IXOS DocuLink Repository Manager 1.0 has received integration certification with the SAP NetWeaver, SAP's open integration and application platform. DocuLink Repository Manager is designed to enable SAP business content that is archived within the IXOS Enterprise Content Repository (ECR) to be integrated with live content from Knowledge Management within the SAP Enterprise Portal solution. It gives organizations greater control over their business content and allows them to implement full-text search, classification, and collaboration scenarios by re-using the generic Knowledge Management services offered by SAP on top of a heterogeneous repository landscape.

As one of two pilot document management solutions to be integration certified by SAP, DocuLink Repository Manager incorporates SAP solution-related information archived in IXOS ECR and delivers both content and context information, such as audit trail and approval, etc. into Knowledge Management. This integration is intended to make it possible for companies using Knowledge Management and SAP Enterprise Portal to provide both frequent and occasional users with a method for searching and accessing both live content and content archived within the IXOS ECR through a Web browser. IXOS DocuLink Repository Manager is available now. Pricing is dependent upon solution configuration and services.
