Interwoven has added to its content management platform three applications designed to solve content-related business problems with prepackaged offerings.

The latest applications target collaborative document management, Web application management, and CM for portals. The set of applications are built on top of Interwoven's ECM 5 platform for developing content applications.

"[Enterprises] want to solve problems faster, with more prepackaged solutions that bring faster return on investment (ROI). People don't want to custom-build all these things," said John Van Siclen, president and chief operating officer of Interwoven.

Interwoven's TeamDoc is document management software that allows a departmental team or a larger enterprise-wide group share, search, and approve documents within a collaborative workspace.

Features such as Document Dashboard, which provides a single view of documents within an organisation, and EasyRoute, for streamlining the approval process, can boost ROI by increasing the efficiency of departments, according to Interwoven.

TeamCode software, meanwhile, provides a collaborative environment for developers to manage the intersection of code and content in Web-based applications. As portals and Web services take off, there is an increased need for collaboration between technical developers and content mangers as well as the ability to manage code and assets in one repository, Van Siclen said.

TeamPortal is designed to integrate enterprise-class CM quickly into portals, company officials said.

Portals can be built without CM, but as the scope of the portal expands it is a challenge to manage multiple content contributors and keep portal content fresh, Van Siclen said.

"Building portals without CM is difficult, what with trying to figure out personalisation rules, what version of portlets are out there, context, and different asset types that all need to be managed in a consistent manner," he said.
