Documentum, a provider of Internet-scale content management solutions for powering
e-business applications, announced (20/12/00) that Covisint, the world’s largest
e-business automotive exchange, will utilize the Documentum 4i eBusiness content
management platform. Covisint will rely on the 4i eBusiness Platform to provide
eContent management for customers via its specialized Customer Branded Environments
(CBEs), which are customer branded extranets within Covisint.

"Covisint will serve thousands of customers conducting a tremendous amount
of activity on the exchange, and the eContent management solution we chose had
to be reliable, efficient and functional, as well as quick and easy to deploy,"
said Mark Baughman, Construct Team, Covisint. "The Documentum 4i eBusiness
Platform met those requirements and is aligned with Covisint’s best-of-breed
product focus."

Covisint’s customers have an absolute requirement for informational security,
and as such the exchange required highly secure content management capabilities
that could effectively separate information and automate the processing of content.
Documentum’s 4i eBusiness Platform enables Covisint to partition its eContent
repository, allowing customers to manage their own content at their respective
CBEs.

The 4i eBusiness Platform is also used by the e-business exchange itself to
separate its eContent repository from those of its customers and accelerate
its speed of deployment. Documentum further differentiated its platform by meeting
Covisint’s requirement for rapid implementation, bringing the platform live
just two months after completion of a pilot demonstration. This effective implementation
was made possible with the expertise of PricewaterhouseCoopers, a Documentum
systems integrator.

"Covisint’s success to-date with the 4i eBusiness Platform is a strong
testament to the platform’s successful scalability, robust feature set, and
trusted content capabilities," said Dave De Walt, executive vice president
and chief operating officer for Documentum.
