RedDot Launches Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Document Management Integration



    Open Text Web Solutions Enable Organizations to Expand the Web Visibility
    of Their Microsoft SharePoint Document Libraries Securely to Any Online
    Media

    CHICAGO, March 25 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) Corporation (NASDAQ:   OTEX,
TSX: OTC), a global leader in enterprise content management (ECM), today
announced that RedDot, the Open Text Web Solutions Group, has released its
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Document Management Integration.
    A successful Web strategy includes the ability to deliver content in
context to all visitors. Whether the business initiatives encompass employee
productivity on an intranet, customer or partner communication via a secure
extranet, or managing localized sites for a strong global strategy; content is
the crux of how these goals can be achieved. Organizations currently managing
key information within Office SharePoint Server 2007 may also want to offer an
experience driven Web environment that can increase the value of content
within their document library.
    "As part of our strategic leadership in bringing new solutions for the
Microsoft platform to the market, we are pleased to add this integration
enhancement to our portfolio of leading content management and delivery
solutions," said Daniel Kraft, President, RedDot, the Open Text Web Solutions
Group.
    RedDot's integration solution embraces the SharePoint Server 2007
technology by offering value-added features and benefits that include:

    
    -   Cache a document from SharePoint Server 2007: When sharing a document
        online is important but permissions limit user access, RedDot can
        publish and retain a resident copy of the document presented to any
        online target, while maintaining the security and integrity of the
        SharePoint Server 2007 Library.

    -   Link a document from SharePoint Server 2007: Web content editors can
        address latency and stale Web content by dynamically accessing a
        document resident in SharePoint Server 2007. Users can link documents
        via the publishing system to any online target with secure and
        controlled access from any location.

    -   Access different document versions: Administrators can select a
        specific version of a document to publish with granularity to access
        previous or minor versions as well.

    -   Publish document attributes and metadata from SharePoint Server 2007:
        The descriptive attributes and metadata of a document help to drive
        personalization and a rich online user experience. Web content
        editors can publish document metadata to any online target for
        classification, search or interactive user insight.
    

    As organizations look to invest in SharePoint Server 2007, this
integration release will help them create, access and publish assets out to
the web with ease, with the added benefit of being able to extend their
technology investment.

    Open Text is a leader in delivering solutions that extend the Microsoft
