Phase one of project included rapid two-week migration of 300,000 HTML pages; empowers 150 Web managers to effectively control and publish time-sensitive content to Department for Work and Pensionsı intranet

LONDON, UK, Feb. 19, 2003 ‹ StellentTM, Ltd. (Nasdaq: STEL), the London-based subsidiary of Stellent, Inc., a global provider of content management solutions, announced today the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the United Kingdomıs largest central government organisation, has successfully completed the first phase of a two-phased Stellent Content Management implementation. The deployment replaces DWPıs internal, hybrid content management solution, with the intent of changing the way its employees manage and share information electronically.

The completion of the first phase included the migration of 300,000 HTML pages into the Stellent Content Management system within a two-week period. This transition enables DWPıs 150 Web managers to now manage and publish time-sensitive content to DWPıs intranet in a fraction of the time it previously took. Phase two of the implementation, scheduled for completion by DWP by May 2004, will enable the organisationıs 3,000 content generators to publish and maintain their own content, without assistance from DWPıs Web managers.

"Already from the first phase of our project weıve seen tremendous benefits," said Bernie Bowkers, content management project manager, Department for Work and Pensions. "So much of our Web content is time-sensitive, which means an extremely high number of manual changes are needed on a daily basis. The dynamic management capabilities of the Stellent system should relieve this pressure and allow our Web managers to focus more of their time on strategic issues."

"Cost-effective and time-efficient management of content is the biggest challenge facing e-government today," said Bryan Richter vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Stellent. "This content will continue to grow and only by using enterprise content management applications will public bodies be able to meet their electronic service delivery targets."

"Government agencies worldwide are increasingly implementing technology solutions to provide a higher level of service and greater information access to growing and diverse constituencies," said Vern Hanzlik, president and chief executive officer for Stellent. "The Stellent Content Management system has enabled numerous governments ‹ both in the United States and abroad ‹ to more efficiently complete their e-government initiatives, whether they include building a Web presence, adding transactional capabilities to a Web site or integrating back-office systems with Web-based applications."
