Open Text Announces WCM Strategy with RedDot Solutions

Oct 13, 2006


Open Text Corporation, an independent provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, announced an expanded Web Content Management (WCM) strategy, which includes the integration of RedDot Solutions' software with Open Text's Livelink ECM--Web Content Management Server. The integration will bring together RedDot's WCM and delivery capabilities with Open Text's Livelink ECM suite, using the backend server capabilities of Livelink ECM-Web Content Management Server.

RedDot's software will be integrated with the ECM functionality in Open Text's Livelink ECM suite, including document management, records management, business process management, and collaboration. Livelink ECM-Web Content Management Server will also enhance RedDot with content server capabilities, including advanced clustering, which can scale globally and offer integration with enterprise application servers, such as SAP NetWeaver, IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, and Oracle 10g. The solution also supports content integration with standard back-office ERP applications.

The first phase of integration will include the ability to access and publish content maintained in Open Text's broader Livelink ECM suite using RedDot. Customers building websites using RedDot will also be able to integrate Livelink ECM collaboration features such as discussions or opinion polls in their website designs. It will be available in early 2007. The second phase includes a complete, single server platform with enterprise scale clustering and distribution, and simplified server configuration.
