Enterprise content and business process management solutions provider FileNet has teamed up with storage player Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) to sell an integrated offering. The solution is based on Hitachi storage systems and combines its Data Retention Utility software with the FileNet P8 enterprise content management (ECM) platform (release 3.5). The vendors say the joint solution will help customers manage and store very large volumes of documents, including critical e-mail and other business records on Hitachi’s storage area network (SAN) subsystems. In addition, the solution can address corporate governance and regulatory compliance directives, which mandate specific document retention periods, immutability and the establishment and proof of required document control and management processes. “ECM and high performance storage infrastructure solutions are a natural complement when it comes to helping customers meet the challenges of managing information,” says Carlo Stellati, vice president, South Europe, Middle East and Africa, FileNet. “We believe this joint solution offers tremendous synergy between the two companies’ technologies, offering opportunities to enhance our respective capabilities and address compliance to regulatory initiatives and management of the information lifecycle in order to deliver greater customer benefits,” he adds. The partnership between FileNet and Hitachi Data Systems will provide solutions such as integration of FileNet’s Content Manager, Email Manager, Records Manager and Image Manager with the Hitachi Data Retention Utility software. The Data Retention Utility provides write once, read many (WORM) functionality for disk media across all tiers of Hitachi storage.
