Eprise, Inktomi Ally on Content Management

Eprise has become the first vendor to license an OEM version of Inktomi Content Delivery Suite and will integrate the software with Eprise Participant Server.

Eprise Participant Server allows companies to create, update, and manage their Web content by giving their users the ability to submit, edit, approve, and post content on the fly and then have it presented to the right viewer at the right time. Inktomi Content Delivery Suite technology replicates and synchronizes any type of content to multiple Web services anywhere in a distributed environment. By embedding the Inktomi solution into Eprise Participant Server, Eprise says it is extending the ability of its product to provide content management and delivery that promotes dynamic content creation, content availability, and distribution and management of enterprise Web content.

"Having one solution that addresses content creation, deployment and delivery is a major advancement for organizations with large infrastructures," Eprise CRO Jon Radoff said in a statement. "You can have the most dynamic Web content in the world, but if you can't effectively distribute it to multiple sites simultaneously, then your e-business strategy is mired by scalability limitations."

The complete integrated offering will become available with the next version of Eprise Participant Server, slated for release later this year. Some new features are available immediately, however. These include the ability to replicate and distribute content globally across a heterogeneous Web site infrastructure, the capability to perform transactional content deployment so that sites are updated simultaneously for all visitors, and the ability to provide secure, bandwidth-efficient distribution technology that works well over WANs and ASP infrastructures.
