TOWER Software continues to lead the market in certified ECM solutions to enable best practice information management out of the box.

November 29, 2007 – Wokingham, Berkshire – TOWER Software, a proven global leader and experts in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions and electronic records management announced today that TRIM Context 6 has again been certified by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) against the US DoD 5015.2 standard. In 1999 TOWER Software was the second company worldwide to have its solution certified against the standard and it has continuously maintained this certification since that date.

The recently released TRIM Context 6R2 is now certified for managing Non-Classified (Chapter 2) and Classified (Chapter 4) Records, and continues to provide a comprehensive list of additional functionality which is noted under the non-mandatory ‘Other Useful RMA Features’ (Chapter 3) of the certification.

Originally intended to test and certify the quality and abilities of Records Management Applications for use by US defense organizations, the US DoD 5015.2-STD is now a highly regarded benchmark of ECM records management capabilities by government and private enterprises worldwide.

“The DoD certification program for Electronic Records Management Software
Applications is one of, if not the most comprehensive certification and testing programs in the world.” said Keith Cameron, TOWER Software’s Senior Systems Analyst for Certification and Standards.

“I had no doubt that TRIM Context would successfully pass the rigorous testing of Chapter 2 and Chapter 4. What I am especially proud of is that we were once again, able to demonstrate TRIM Context's ability to integrate with Microsoft SharePoint and provide all of the ‘Other Useful RMA Features’ such as workflow, report writer, barcode reading, and imaging capture amongst others, found in the Non-Mandatory Features (Chapter 3) of the standard, adding additional value to organizations when they are managing their critical information assets.”

TOWER Software also gained certification on the combination of TRIM Context and HP Integrated Archive Platform, giving customers an integrated ECM and enterprise archiving solution that complies with U.S. DoD 5015.2. HP’s Integrated Archive Platform is an enterprise-class, factory-integrated software and services platform comprised of world-class HP ProLiant server and storage products and built-in content indexing, policy management and search software. TRIM Context integrates with HP Integrated Archive Platform through documented programming interfaces to add workflow capabilities and archiving support for additional information types such as SharePoint data.

“The pairing of TRIM Context 6 and HP Integrated Archive Platform provides customers with a comprehensive, cost-effective solution for electronic discovery, regulatory compliance and governance of both structured and unstructured information, including e-mail, files, SharePoint data, print stream data, and more,” said Robin Purohit, Vice President and General Manager, Information Management Group, Software, HP.
