Single-site Solution Delivers Value Now and Scales For Future Growth

PLEASANTON, Calif. – August 8, 2001 – Documentum (Nasdaq: DCTM), the leading provider of enterprise content management solutions, today announced that Documentum 4i Web Content Management (WCM) Edition Rapid Deploy is now available for $75k through September 30, 2001. Documentum 4i WCM already offers a full-featured, single-site content management solution for significantly less than $100,000 with its Rapid Deploy package. This package, as its name implies, is specifically designed to facilitate rapid implementation and deployment with a pre-defined set of products, integrations, training and maintenance all bundled at a single price. Documentum is now offering a limited-time discount to further augment its already powerful price to performance advantage with the Documentum 4i WCM Edition. This powerful content management solution shortens time to Web for critical content, enables more effective selling and lowers site management costs. Documentum WCM Rapid Deploy uses the same robust, standards-based content management engine that drives the Documentum WCM Edition Global Deploy packages —the content management solution of choice for more than 1200 of the Global 2000. This promotional discount is a competitive value aimed at offering companies some relief from the pressure placed on IT budgets during this economic squeeze.

Now businesses that have delayed the purchase of a Web content management solution due to cost can get the same performance that the Global 2000 rely on for well under $100k. The Documentum 4i WCM Edition Rapid Deploy package delivers exceptional price to performance value. Documentum WCM Rapid Deploy:

"WCM Rapid Deploy features tools and integrations that streamline and accelerate the creation, management and delivery of Web site content," said Whitney Tidmarsh, vice president of product marketing for Documentum. "This powerful solution delivers immediate value, yet easily scales for future growth. And, at this price point, it’s more affordable than ever for companies to automate the content production and publishing processes that make their web sites compelling and attractive."
