Kinecta and Tridion announce partnership Wednesday 11 April 2001 PDF Print Standards-based technologies enable global distribution and management of business-critical content online SAN FRANCISCO/AMSTERDAM, 10 April 2001 -- Kinecta Corporation, a global technology leader in powering B2B Content Networks, and Tridion, a leading European provider of XML-based web content management software, announced today that they have signed a partnership agreement to combine co-marketing efforts. The companies also plan to investigate future integration efforts providing customers with the latest web content management and distribution solutions. This relationship reflects the growing demand for content exchange solutions in Europe and marks Kinecta's increasing presence outside the U.S. According to a recent Jupiter Executive Survey 65 per cent of site managers expect to manage 20 or more content distribution relationships over the next 12 months. As businesses increase their online relationships, the need for a flexible, standards-based solution that empowers companies to create, manage, distribute and integrate Web content grows significantly. "As businesses take a hard look at how they effectively manage and exchange their content, they recognise that integration with content distribution solutions like Kinecta Interact provide a logical extension to their content management system," said Jouk Pleiter, president of Tridion. "Our relationship with Kinecta promises to deliver a more complete content management solution, allowing companies to easily manage the creation and distribution of content to their core customers and partners." "Increasing pressure to distribute content and integrate islands of content within and between businesses requires a scalable, flexible solution to improve business efficiencies," said David Mathison, Kinecta chairman and chief executive officer. "Well-managed content that can be easily distributed throughout an enterprise's value chain is essential to effective business growth."
