<p>Interwoven Continues to Receive High Marks from Industry Analysts, Customers, and Media for Leadership and Vendor Strength</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, 22 June, 2004 - Interwoven, Inc. (Nasdaq: IWOV), the world’s next-generation enterprise content management (ECM) company, continues to be recognized by top industry analyst firms, customers, and the media for its leadership in the ECM marketplace.</p>
<p>Market Leadership within ECM
Continued Web Content Management Momentum: In the Forrester TechRankings report published on February 9, 2004 by Nicholas Wilkoff, Interwoven's ECM platform received the top score for Web content management (WCM). Interwoven ranked the highest in WCM compared to all other participating vendors. The report stated that TeamSite 6, Interwoven's WCM product, excels at features such as in-context editing, templating, and publishing workflows. Recently TeamSite 6 has been adopted by a record number of customers since its release just eight months ago, driven by the world-class user interfaces.</p>
<p>Continued Momentum in Collaboration and Document Management: With regard to Interwoven’s strength in the professional services marketplace in particular, AmLaw Tech, one of the premier legal technology publications, stated that since Interwoven’s merger with iManage, in both Q4 2003 and Q1 2004 Interwoven captured the majority of legal document management license deals over its nearest competitor, with twice the number of seats. Already in Q1 2004 Interwoven had 50% more transactions than the nearest competitor, representing 100% more total seats. (AmLaw Tech, The American Lawyer's Technology Supplement, June 2004, pages 13–15).</p>
<p>Continued Momentum in Digital Asset Management: In the 12 months since Interwoven’s acquisition of MediaBin, the Company has doubled the installed base of its leading digital asset management product, MediaBin, adding top global brands such as BT and Motorola to its customer portfolio. According to a recent Gartner research note, “By 2006, more than 85 percent of Global 1000 firms will have deployed some MRM [Marketing Resource Management] capabilities to better manage their digital assets…Enterprises that have not deployed applications to collect and manage digital assets and marketing content should consider digital asset management and enterprise content management applications.” (Collect-and-Manage Moves From Asset to Knowledge Management, March 29, 2004, by K. Collins).</p>
<p>A 2003 Forrester Research report comments on the iManage/Interwoven merger, stating that iManage has very strong DM and team collaboration roots, especially in the legal vertical. Interwoven is a leading WCM vendor that provides high-performance capabilities through its TeamSite, OpenDeploy and MetaTagger products...and supports some of the highest traffic, public-facing Web sites and intranets in the world, which is a distinct advantage against other WCM competitors.
