<p>Speeds the Execution of Marketing Projects, Drives Down Costs, and Simplifies Business Processes for Global Enterprises</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, 21 April, 2004 - Interwoven Inc. (Nasdaq: IWOV), provider of the world's next-generation enterprise content management (ECM) platform, today announced the availability of Interwoven MediaBin Asset Server 4.0 software, the leading digital asset management (DAM) product chosen by marketing organizations to manage the thousands of digital assets and associated marketing content used to promote their products and brands.</p>
<p>Building upon its acquisition of MediaBin, a pioneering digital asset management company in 2003, Interwoven has reinforced its DAM solution with metadata enhancements for greater speed and flexibility, a refined user interface for a more intuitive and productive customer experience and added ‘intelligence’ through integration of its Content Intelligence software for more effective and relevant search results. The new version also builds on Interwoven’s service-oriented architecture (SOA) to streamline the execution of marketing projects and facilitate the controlled distribution of marketing content. It also connects multiple servers, both inside and outside of the organization, to help manage all marketing content locally, while providing centralized, global access for employees and business partners.</p>
<p>Commented Barney Dunne, CTO Asia-Pacific at Interwoven: “Based on the most scaleable, easily extensible, proven digital asset management platform available on the market today, MediaBin 4.0 enables extended marketing teams to catalogue, manage, transform and distribute digital assets, including photographs and logos, audio and video, datasheets and advertisements, presentations and documents, in a more strategic, controlled and efficient manner to better automate marketing processes and increase time-to-market for new products and campaigns.”</p>
<p>This announcement immediately follows Interwoven being recognized by Frost &amp; Sullivan with the 2004 Business Development Strategy Award for the World Digital Asset Management Market. Based on predetermined measurement criteria, Interwoven was ranked number one in the industry for its ability to listen to its customers and acquire and integrate the necessary technology to address customers’ needs.</p>
