Ness Technologies Selected by BEA to Present at Northeast Region User Group Meeting.

Ness USA Director of BEA-Documentum Integration to Present Real World Application of Web Services Integrating Documentum Content into Enterprise Architectures.

Hackensack, New Jersey - 13 March, 2002 (PRN):Ness Technologies, a leading multi-national IT professional services firm with US operations in Hackensack, New Jersey and Dulles, Virginia, today announced that Alan Zenreich, Director of Ness USA's BEA-Documentum Integration initiative, has been selected by BEA to present advanced Enterprise Content Management techniques at BEA's Spring 2002 User Group meetings in New York and New Jersey.

Entitled "Using WebLogic Workshop Controls for Enterprise Content," Mr. Zenreich's presentation will highlight new Web Services techniques to integrate Documentum into both distributed and enterprise-level architectures.

The presentation will highlight real-world examples - developed using BEA's WebLogic Server 7.0 and Documentum's 4i eContent Server - illustrating the methods used by Ness to create and centralize common software procedures for collecting and distributing enterprise content.

The centralized processes - known as Content Management Web Services - add component-like dimensions to Documentum. The components, and associated content management capabilities, can be offered for use - through standardized, secured channels - to any software application or website in the extended enterprise.

Mark Mszanski, BEA's VP and General Manager remarked "BEA's clients are placing a high priority on sharing content among various enterprise packages and applications. Ness is making a strong, early statement to the market that it possesses both the vision and skill to achieve the interoperability that the market demands. We are pleased to have Ness as a presenter in the Northeast Region User Group Meetings."

Commenting on the benefits of Web Services technology, Joe Fung, Ness USA's Chief Technology Officer, added "The market leading position of Documentum in Content Management - combined with the advanced Web Services offering provided by BEA's WebLogic Workshop - makes for a powerful Enterprise Content Management solution. Our experience is that Web Service technology offers a scalable solution for sharing content seamlessly across organizations, applications, and devices. The effective centralization of Content Management processes - through the use of BEA's WebLogic server and Documentum - generates opportunities for - 1) cost saving maintenance of content and software; 2) enterprise-level administration of content security; and 3) simplified sharing of common process-enabling functionality. In short, the combination of BEA WebLogic and Documentum as an Enterprise Content Management solution facilitates process efficiencies and tangible cost savings."

Mr. Zenreich noted that, "Ness' examples at the User Group meetings will represent one of the first attempts at successfully applying loosely coupled, coarse-grained, asynchronous integration for Enterprise Content Management. Ness is excited to present these process-optimizing ideas at the BEA User Group meetings and we are delighted to deepen our relationship with the BEA community as a whole."
