Documentum eRoom Enterprise Delivers Collaborative Content Management

Unites Collaboration, Content Management and Workflow to Enable Event-Triggered Workspaces

PLEASANTON, Calif., March 8, 2004 -- Documentum, the leading provider of enterprise content management (ECM), today announced the availability of Documentum eRoom Enterprise 7.2, a highly flexible collaborative environment that introduces new capabilities that address the collaborative nature of content creation and management. eRoom Enterprise 7.2 provides the ability to generate event-triggered workspaces based on pre- defined business rules, enabling team members to securely collaborate within the context of a process.

For example, an organization could automate a request for proposal submission process by predefining a workflow that involves employees from Sales, Finance and Engineering. When the proposal reaches the approval stage of the process, eRoom 7.2 can automatically trigger the creation of workspaces, pre-configured with appropriate memberships, content and tools, to enable distributed teams to work together in a collaborative environment.

"Documentum advances the notion of collaborative content management with its latest version of Documentum eRoom Enterprise," said David Coleman, managing director, Collaborative Strategies. "eRoom Enterprise 7.2 hits the mark for delivering a structured environment without hampering creativity, enabling organizations to capture all of the valuable content not typically associated in an often rigid business process."

"eRoom Enterprise 7.2 introduces collaborative content management, in response to market demand for combining the Documentum ECM platform and the collaborative features of eRoom," said Dave DeWalt, president of the Documentum software division of EMC. "eRoom Enterprise 7.2 enables organizations to facilitate and streamline creative processes, dramatically optimize business processes, and accelerate diverse functions such as new product development, client engagement and corporate governance."

Documentum eRoom Enterprise 7.2 new features include:

-- Event-triggered eRooms -- Auto-generated, pre-configured workplaces are driven by workflow processes.

-- Workflow-enabled collaborative assets -- All eRoom documents, databases, database rows, discussions, calendars and projects can now be included in Documentum workflows.

-- Central content repository -- All eRoom content can now be seamlessly stored in the Documentum ECM platform. Document templates can be broadcast to multiple eRooms, and all assets can be shared across multiple eRooms.

-- Optional collaborative Documentum applications -- The eRoom collaboration client can now be configured as an interface to other Documentum applications, enabling, for example, collaborative digital asset management and collaborative web content management.

-- Complete integration between eRoom and Documentum platform -- Seamless integration allows business users to take full advantage of the Documentum content management services in a collaborative environment.


Documentum eRoom Enterprise 7.2 is immediately available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
