Document management company Documentum Inc is forging closer links with German manufacturing supply chain software house SAP AG, having realized that 50% of its customers are also SAP users. Documentum co-founder John Newton has come over from the company’s Pleasanton, California-based headquarters to work more closely with SAP on closer integration between the two products. Documentum has announced a bi-directional interface for the application under the name Documentum DocLink for SAP, which it says provides seamless integration between its Enterprise Document Management System and SAP’s R/3, including links to SAP’s own docoment management system and its ArchiveLink communications tool. SAP’s existing documentation tools are static rather than collaborative says Newton. The tool opens the SAP application up to documentation generated from other tools, such as Microsoft Office and AutoCAD, and enables access from SAP to and from Internet/intranet and client-server systems. The two companies are aiming the combination particularly at the process and pharmaceuticals industries. DocLink for SAP is available now and runs on Windows 3.1, 95 and NT clients, Sun Microsystems Inc, Hewlett-Packard Co Unix and Windows NT servers. Documentum says that the closer relationship will not have any affect on its non- SAP business.
