By : |July 18, 2002 0




BANGALORE: IBM has launched a new software, Content Manager 8, enabling customers to manage and integrate information from the widest variety of sources, regardless of where the information resides. The new enterprise content management software includes support for open standards, provides increased performance and allows customers to leverage their existing technology infrastructure to gain a greater return on their investment, according to an official release.


IBM Content Manager version 8 helps businesses solve a critical problem — managing and integrating all forms of information located in various data sources, including scanned images, audio, video and information from multiple software vendors’ products. Organizations are increasingly looking for ways to make their operations more cost-effective by leveraging their existing business information.


The ability to capture this information in digital format allows them to become more efficient, respond faster to suppliers and customers, tap into new markets, and ultimately increase profits. Industry experts estimate that employees spend as much as 35 percent of their time looking for information they need to do their jobs.


IBM India, Country Manager, Software Group, Frank Luksic, said, “Content Manager version 8 includes enhanced usability and unlimited scalability to meet customers’ growing needs. Customers can now experience heightened performance results through 25 percent faster search capabilities. Additionally, developers can now build applications 30 percent faster, enabling them to minimize the costs and resources required to integrate content management data into existing and new third-party business applications.”


IBM Content Manager version 8 is in beta now and will be generally available in September 2002. The new software is priced at $24,000 per processor and $2,000 per concurrent users. Content Manager supports multiple platforms, including Sun, AIX and NT and OS/390.
