Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Extends Use of Open Text



    
    Open Text Digital Media Software to Manage Graphics and Rich Media for
    F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Project
    

    WATERLOO, April 7 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) (NASDAQ:   OTEX, TSX: OTC), a
global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today announced Lockheed
Martin Aeronautics Joint-Service Technical Data (JTD) Integrated Product Team
(IPT), based in Fort Worth, Texas, extended its use of Open Text's Digital
Asset Management (DAM) solution to manage graphics and rich media content for
F-35 Lightning II Technical Data. The F-35 Lightning II, or Joint Strike
Fighter (JSF), is a DoD multi-service/multi-national effort to create a
next-generation stealth fighter plane.
    After a rigorous screening and approval process, Innodata Isogen, the
technology consulting and integration company behind the design of the JTD IPT
system, and the Joint-Service Technical Data IPT team selected Open Text to
complement an existing XML-based content management system (CMS). With its
Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) architecture and open interface, the DAM
software from Open Text is seamlessly integrated with a complex array of
unique F-35 Program Technical Data development and support authoring
workflows.
    "Innodata Isogen is widely recognized for our expertise and experience
designing and integrating content management and publishing systems for
companies with complex, large-scale publishing requirements," said Al Girardi,
vice president and chief marketing officer for Innodata Isogen
(www.innodata-isogen.com/) (NASDAQ:   INOD). "The Open Text solution met our
client's requirements and delivered a number of features - providing JTD IPT
Graphics Illustrators and Technical Data Authors with robust search
capabilities; broad format support, flexible security permissions and a host
of other tools to help execute tasks more efficiently."
    Scott Bowen, President of Open Text's Digital Media Group, noted:
"Lockheed Martin needed an extensible, interoperable media management solution
capable of supporting a highly collaborative, globally coordinated effort like
the Joint Strike Fighter. Technical data and digital media content are
critical support resources for the F-35 Program, helping to achieve overall
effectiveness of the F-35. We are pleased to play an important role in this
program."
