<p>SYDNEY, ­ July 20, 2004 ­FileNet Corporation, a leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions, today announced its FileNet P8 3.0 platform now offers XML Web Service-based access to provide a new level of platform-independent connectivity and interoperability, and support growing market requirements for Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs).</p>
<p>FileNet’s XML Web Services is designed to provide rich content and business process management functionality for ECM applications. Additionally, FileNet Business Process Management capabilities can now be leveraged as a process orchestrator, providing integration between applications and helping to leverage existing software investments.

<p>FileNet’s XML Web Services fully conforms to Basic Profile 1.0 guidelines established by the Web Services Interoperability Organisation (WS-I), an industry group chartered to promote Web Services interoperability across platforms, operating systems and programming languages.</p>
<p>FileNet XML Web Services supports a wide range of development environments, and enables customers that are adopting SOAs, a new application development paradigm that leverages best-in-class software services built on open industry standards, to simplify application development and integration.</p>
<p>FileNet’s XML Web Services-enabled ECM solution makes it easier to integrate content and process management capabilities into business applications, while streamlining development time and reducing costs, helping organisations maximise return on investment. Additionally, FileNet’s XML Web Services-enabled offering makes ECM functionality more accessible across the organisation and through wireless and other mobile devices, giving companies new ways to leverage content for greater competitive advantage.</p>
<p>“FileNet is taking the lead in offering an integrated, feature-rich XML Web Service-enabled ECM platform that meets the needs of next-generation applications and provides new levels of functional connectivity,” said James Rae, FileNet’s Managing Director Australia and New Zealand. “As a result, businesses will be able to develop content-rich applications that deliver information when and where it is needed to empower business partners, suppliers and employees to make better decisions, faster.”</p>
<p>Validation from Industry Leaders</p>
