Verity, Documentum sign licensing agreement

Documentum and Verity have extended a previous licensing agreement that keeps Verity's search technology in Documentum's Enterprise Document Management System (EDMS) until the year 2001. The OEM deal calls for Documentum to incorporate the Verity Developer Kit (VDK) search and retrieval engine in its EDMS document management system, as part of its DocPage Server.

The search technology offers full-featured query language, including full text and metadata search, concept-based search, results list clustering, term highlighting, relevancy ranking, document summarization and query by example. Verity will include international support for Asian languages including Japanese, Chinese (simplified and traditional) and Korean. DocPage Server Version 3.1.5 already includes support for Kanji; more language support is planned for future releases.

"We believe that our companies' business and technical strategies have a great deal of synergy," said Documentum senior product marketing manager Whitney Martin. "Verity offers us a robust solution that enables our customers to easily locate and access business-critical documents across the enterprise."

Verity has "long valued our Documentum relationship and are pleased to see it expand to include additional Verity functionality," according to Anthony Bettencourt, Verity senior VP of sales.
