Microsoft sets course for content management

The acquisistion of Canadian company NCompass gives Microsoft an inroad into content management services.

Microsoft has announced that it will purchase Canadian content-management vendor NCompass Labs for US$36 million.

NCompass’ flagship product, Resolution, is a web content system that manages revisions and deployment of web content for Internet sites or internal networks. After the acquisition, Revolution will be rebranded as a .Net component, and integrated into other Microsoft products for designing sites and creating content.

"Microsoft understands that effectively managing Web content is critical to the success of any e-business initiative and, ultimately, to the profitability of the overall business," said Paul Flessner, senior vice president of the .Net Enterprise Server Division at Microsoft. "By acquiring NCompass Labs' Web content management system and integrating it with the Microsoft .Net Enterprise Servers, we will enable customers to implement complete e-business solutions faster and more effectively."

The announcement cements a long-standing relationship between the two firms, an NCompass spokesman said.
