Trusted Edge, Inc., a provider of automated retention software for records management solutions and services, and Open Text Corporation, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, will partner in an effort to deliver software solutions that extend records and retention management capabilities beyond central document repositories, capture content saved on desktops or shared network drives, and dispose of expired information wherever it exists.
The solutions are intended to simplify and automate the retention and disposal of documents across the enterprise, so that companies can improve compliance, reduce litigation exposure, and enhance knowledge management. The companies will initially target customers in financial services, healthcare, and the public sector, and plan to start introducing solutions in the second quarter of 2005. The targeted solutions are designed to monitor previously unmanaged content for compliance and allow quick access to files for discovery purposes. The solutions will extend the retention process to the desktop, enabling complete lifecycle management and offering true digital disposal of information.
