En breve la gente de Hummingbird en España empezará a implementar y comercializar también la solución Web Content Management de Reddot, el fabricante de WCM alemán, cuyos precios oscilan entre los 6000 euros y los 30000, es decir, una solución de gama media. Esto forma parte de un acuerdo a escala internacional de alianza entre las dos compañías.


TORONTO, Aug. 27 – Hummingbird Ltd. today announced that it is extending its strategic technology alliance with RedDot Solutions, a leading provider of enterprise content management solutions. Hummingbird will resell and distribute the RedDot Content Management Server (CMS), providing customers with tightly integrated Web Content Management (WCM) capabilities to complement their investment in the Hummingbird Enterprise document management and portal technologies.

«The strong integration of RedDot’s Web content management capabilities with the Hummingbird Enterprise suite of information and knowledge management solutions further strengthens our leadership in the smart enterprise suite market,» said Andrew Pery, chief marketing officer, senior vice president, Hummingbird Ltd. «By integrating the Hummingbird and RedDot solutions, organizations will get the maximum value from their Web publishing infrastructure, eliminating disparities between document and content repositories to effectively and efficiently manage full content lifecycle from creation, review and Web site publication to retention and ultimate disposition.»

In early 2003, RedDot released CMS 5.0 featuring new workflow capabilities and enhanced integration of the Hummingbird document management technologies. As a result, many organizations have become mutual customers of RedDot and Hummingbird to leverage the high degree of synchronization between the two products, shared repositories and bi-directional mapping of metadata. The integrated document and Web content management solution will allow customers such as Laing Investment Management Services in London, England, Cancer Care Ontario in Canada, and the Department of Industry and Resources (DoIR) in Australia, to optimize efficiencies, reduce redundant tasks, and empower their content contributors.

«Content management is the core infrastructure that all organizations must have to succeed in a Web-centric business world,» said Mark Gilbert, vice president and research director, Gartner Inc. «Gartner has seen WCM evolve and mature significantly during the past three years with key enterprise issues focusing on better integration and maximizing the value of their WCM investments. Vendors offering a complete integrated solution as represented by the smart enterprise suite understand the changing WCM market and the impact of technology convergence.»

RedDot CMS and Hummingbird DM offer customers an out-of-the-box integration of the two complementary technologies. With this integrated content management solution, customers can create, repurpose, and store all forms of content in their Hummingbird document management repositories, eliminating redundancy and the need to maintain content in separate locations. The combined solution helps organizations to rapidly and consistently produce various Web properties with enhanced quality, relevant content, and consistent navigation – while comprehensively managing source content through its entire lifecycle.

«DoIR is responsible for advancing Western Australia’s $33-billion-a-year resources industry. We depend on our online vehicles to deliver information internally and externally to our mass community, currently being managed by RedDot CMS,» said Karen Watkins, project manager, Department of Industry and Resources. «Like most government agencies our content resides in the form of both Web content and documents and having the ability to synchronize our Hummingbird document management system with our content management system is imperative. The RedDot, Hummingbird integration will allow us to maximize our investment and ensure that our Web site reflects the most current content available, independent of where the content resides.»

«The RedDot and Hummingbird agreement emphasizes our ongoing commitment to provide organizations of all sizes, with the most comprehensive content and document management system available today,» said Niels Metger, CEO, RedDot Solutions. «Now, organizations can manage their content with one integrated solution, maximizing the effectiveness of their Web properties, while delivering a rapid return on their investment.»
