Documentum, the leading provider of enterprise content management and a division of EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced that Wolters Kluwer, a leading multinational publisher and information services company has standardised on Documentum 5, the latest version of the Documentum ECM platform. Wolters Kluwer chose Documentum to manage all of its publishing assets throughout its companies in North America and parts of Europe.

More than 700 Wolters Kluwer employees will use Documentum 5. Its powerful XML capabilities support production decrease costs and time to market, and automate the processes for repurposing content, it eliminates highly customised middleware and time-consuming manual processes. Investing to drive revenue growth is Wolters Kluwers top strategic priority, and using Documentum will help the company strengthen customer relationships, deliver end-to-end solutions and expand online products and services.

We provide content to 18 different industries in a number of different media, like loose leaf publications, books, newsletters, CD-ROMs, web applications, online, Internet and intranet, said Wolters Kluwers John Roth, vice president of technology operations and publishing North America. We also repurpose content among different libraries. Creating, managing, delivering and storing all of that content efficiently calls for a robust yet flexible content management system. Thats why we chose Documentum.

The Documentum ECM platform provides a centralised, secure and scalable repository for text and images, including Quark documents, InDesign layouts, PDFs and multimedia assets like Flash. Wolters Kluwers content will be automatically indexed and retrievable in seconds with Documentums powerful search engines. Using Documentums extensive XML capabilities, Wolters Kluwer will be able to separate layout, presentation and language from content authoring by using pre-defined templates and stylesheets. The company will also be able to automate and manipulate content for reuse in different media.

Documentum is pleased to expand its relationship with Wolters Kluwer as this is another example of a company that implements our products in a single division and then expands use throughout its enterprise, said Dave DeWalt, president of the Documentum software division of EMC. Documentum continues to have great success in the publishing industry. Documentums XML management capabilities are truly best-in-class, recognised by companies like Wolters Kluwer, who are looking to maximise efficiencies across their enterprise.
