Aggregation and distribution are core requirements for enterprise content management
29 January 2002
Documentum acquired privately held Boxcar Software last week
Boxcar provides standards-based, next-generation technology for content aggregation and content distribution, and Documentum plans to integrate the technology with the Documentum platform by the second quarter of this year.
With this acquisition, Documentum steps us its delivery capabilities.
Content aggregation is the automated gathering of any type of content, from any source, either inside or outside a company's firewalls, including web sites, public folders, file systems and legacy applications.
Content distribution (known as "syndication" in the media and publishing industries) is the automated distribution of any type of content, in any format, to any destination. Companies can choose to push content to specific target audiences, or recipients can specify preferences for content, format, timing and delivery method.
The combination of Documentum and Boxcar's technology will enable companies to gather all types of content from disparate sources; integrate it with other enterprise content; manage and personalize the content; then securely deliver and distribute it, in multiple formats, to multiple audiences,
say the companies.
