While the importance of data backup is a well-known cliché for business users, many businesses would rather stick to existing, limited, overly-convoluted and – in some cases – outdated practices than introduce more modern backup solutions to their organisation.
Interwoven Delivers First Comprehensive Service Oriented Architecture in the Content Management Industry, Boosting Productivity and Reducing Development Costs

<p>Interwoven Implements SOA with Release of ContentServices 2.0 in TeamSite 6.0 to Provide Web Services-based Toolkit Enabling Integration to Leading J2EE and .NET Applications</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, 7 April, 2004 - Interwoven Inc. (Nasdaq: IWOV), a world leader in content management for the enterprise, today announced that it is delivering Interwoven ContentServices 2.0 SDK, the first comprehensive service-oriented architecture in the content management industry, to major Australian corporations. ContentServices 2.0 provides easy-to-integrate, standards-based access to content management services such as task management, workflow, user access, project configuration, and versioning from J2EE and .NET applications - boosting productivity and reducing development costs enterprise-wide.</p>
<p>Embracing Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA) design principles, Interwoven ContentServices 2.0 uses de-facto standards, such as Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Web Services Description Language (WSDL) to provide organisations with the flexibility to develop content-centric applications independent of platform or language. ContentServices 2.0 forms the foundation for the ContentCenter user interfaces in Interwoven TeamSite 6.0 Content Server and enables the integration of Interwoven content management with any application via Web Services.</p>
<p>According to recent META Group research (March 15 2004), by 2005, a new set of meta-architectural principles, currently referred to as "service-oriented architecture" (SOA), will be broadly diffused throughout the IT environment in the form of service-oriented business architecture, service-oriented security architecture, service-oriented management architecture, etc. By 2006, SOA will be widely understood and treated as a metadata (or model) interoperability architecture, given its emphasis on interoperable identifiers (namespace metadata), formats (information models), and protocols (process models). By 2007, composite applications will be based on the SOA principles of dynamic, extensible, federated interoperability and enabled by XML-based technologies such as Web services.</p>
<p>ContentServices eases application integration, and with the adoption of Web Services standards, applications can provide a standards-based, cross-platform and language-neutral interface. Once a SOAP interface has been implemented, the service can be reused by any enterprise application. Adherence to WSDL standards enables quick generation of client-side code in any of a number of different languages supported by the .NET framework.</p>
<p>ContentServices SDK also uses the industry-leading SOAP server, Systinet WASP (Web Applications and Services Platform) to provide the SOAP-XML/HTTP access to critical content management functionality.</p>
<p>Interwoven ContentServices SDK 2.0 software also provides WSDL files for workflow, access control, and other content management services to make it easy for developers to integrate content management into packaged applications such as portals, CRM, ERP, and any custom applications.</p>
<p>"In order to achieve low-cost, fast, and flexible application integration on the back-end, enterprises are starting to move in the direction of enabling multi-channel business applications with a services-oriented architecture," said Barney Dunne, Director, Technology and Strategic Solutions, Interwoven Asia-Pacific. "Interwoven 6 is the industry's first content management platform to adopt a SOA, and with its easy-to-use interface, workflow, versioning, and publishing capabilities, Interwoven 6, together with leading ContentServices technology, gives organisations the power to access a common pool of content management services across any number of applications enterprise-wide."</p>
<p>ContentServices SDK 2.0 is now available as part of the Interwoven Developer Suite. For more information, visit http://www.interwoven.com/products/developer_suite/.
