The European Parliament has contracted Sema Group Belgium and Fujitsu Ltd subsidiary the TeamWare Group to develop a document management and production system for automated information request and follow-up processes for Members of Parliament. The workflow system allows the routing and follow-up of requests from the Members of Parliament to the Directorate General for Research (DG4). Sema used TeamWare’s ProcessWise WorkBench modeling and simulation tool, the Flow workflow engine and an Oracle Corp database and Apache web server running on Sun Microsystems Inc Solaris systems. The system has been installed in the first phase to 100 people in the DG4. Next year it will be opened to all MEPs. TeamWare, originally developed and marketed extensively in Europe by Fujitsu’s UK-based ICL Plc unit, says its software is now used by 2 million people worldwide. ICL, however, is no longer mentioned in conjunction with the subsidiary, and unconfirmed reports suggest that ICL itself is now using Microsoft Corp’s Exchange for internal use in place of the TeamWare software it developed. Earlier this month, TeamWare announced a new Knowledge Browser that it claims can help manage the information overload associated with internet and email traffic (CI No 3,593). For both office-based and mobile workers, Knowledge Browser files and retrieves web and email documents, searches for information within predefined guidelines and automatically notifies of changes on relevant web sites.
