London, April 8, 2009 – Sword Group announces that its Sword Connect team has launched the world's first gadget supporting enterprise content management (ECM) integration for Google Apps™. As a Google Enterprise Partner™ and leading ECM integrator Sword's ECM Gadget, developed in conjunction with Google™, enables Premier Edition users to securely access the powerful capabilities of on-premise ECM repositories, such as EMC Documentum and IBM Filenet at any time, from anywhere, using any web-enabled mobile device.

By leveraging Google's Secure Data Connector™, the Sword ECM Gadget integrates centrally-managed on-premise firewalled data with the ease of cloud-based solutions avoiding the costly and time-consuming migration of data. With a single point of entry enterprises benefit from a unique password-protected domain from where authorised users can access all areas of their corporate repositories safe in the knowledge that the existing application security model is being maintained.

Fabrice Lienart, director, Sword Group said: "We are seeing an increasing number of companies looking to harness the benefits of the cloud-computing model. That's why we developed the Sword Connect Library incorporating customised enterprise connectors and gadgets. Gadgets help organisations work smarter and more efficiently by bridging the gap between information and real life business requirements meaning corporate users can quickly and easily share information and collaborate with colleagues, partners and suppliers creating reports or navigating workflow.

"Our Sword ECM Gadget extends the reach of on-premise enterprise data improving collaboration with partners and suppliers and enabling data mash-ups across on-premise and real-time feeds. Using the Google Sites™ platform provides a flexible, controlled and scalable enterprise collaboration space and portal which harnesses the benefits of the cloud for business."

Olivier Colinet, technical director, Google Enterprise said: "With the launch of Sword's ECM Gadget Google Apps customers can now access complex behind-the-firewall ECM repositories which are key information silos for enterprises. Using Sword's ECM Gadget customers are able to integrate on-premise systems with cloud-based infrastructure to provide a more secure, integrated and hosted ECM solution."
