Companies Co-operate on Joint Sales and Marketing Activities



2 October 2001 - Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS), a global leader in
application serving and portal software and services, and Documentum
(Nasdaq: DCTM), a leading provider of enterprise content management, today
announced a multi-tiered alliance that will bring content management
functionality to portal users across the enterprise. By using Documentum
eContent Services for Portals to expose content management capabilities
through the portal interface, portal users will be able to manage
business-critical content and participate in business workflows. To energise
the product initiatives, Citrix has joined the Documentum Signature Partner
Programme, and Documentum has become a premier member of the Citrix Business
Alliance(tm) (CBA) Internet Solutions Programme, spurring joint sales and
marketing activities.



The initial focus of the alliance will be the integration of Citrix® XPS(tm)
portal software with Documentum 4i(tm) eBusiness Platform. This will be
accomplished through the development of a new Content Delivery Agent (CDA),
an individual, easy-to-use, Web-based application that snaps directly into a
user's XPS homepage. The CDA is based on Documentum eContent Services for
Portals, a comprehensive set of content management user functions that are
exposed through the portal interface.



"We're excited about going to market with Documentum," said Barry Davis,
vice president, business development for Citrix. "Our alliance offers joint
customers several choices for rapidly distributing powerful Documentum
content management services to any content contributor in a secure and
highly-manageable manner, accelerating content creation and ROI."



Davis added, "Citrix's partnership with Documentum is important, because it
builds upon the full range of our application and information delivery
capabilities. Today, Citrix is providing IT infrastructure that supports
better and faster decision making, the delivery of new services, and
collaborative business relationships - across the Web or any other corporate
network."



In addition to the Citrix XPS integration, Documentum will certify the
Documentum 4i platform in the MetaFrame® environment. This will allow
customers with a range of network connections to take advantage of the full
functionality of Documentum 4i, providing access through the Citrix ICA
client as well as Web access using Citrix's NFuse(tm) application portal
product.



Citrix offers two classes of portal solutions to serve its broad customer
base:



* Citrix NFuse application portal software provides MetaFrame customers with
the ability to integrate and publish interactive Windows, UNIX or Java
applications into any standard Web browser - instantly "Webifying" them
without a single application rewrite.


* Citrix XPS portal software gives users a single, personalised and secure
point of interaction with the applications and information helping them work
smarter and faster, and supporting the delivery of new services within and
beyond the enterprise.



"The integration of Documentum 4i eBusiness Platform with Citrix XPS creates
a best-of-breed solution that allows portal end users to access and manage
accurate enterprise content in any format and participate in business
workflow processes," said Steve Pattison, vice president of technology
partner alliances, Documentum. "Using Documentum eContent Services for
Portals, Citrix and Documentum can deliver these powerful content management
functions through the portal quickly and easily, reducing time-to-portal and
improving productivity for customers."
