OPEN MARKET INTEGRATES CSEE W/ IPLANET PORTAL SERVER 3.0.

Open Market, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMKT), a provider of content-driven e-business solutions, has unveiled a seamless integration between its Content Server Enterprise Edition (CSEE) software and the iPlanet Portal Server 3.0 from iPlanet E-Commerce Solutions, a Sun-Netscape Alliance. This integration provides interoperability between the iPlanet Portal Server and Open Market's CSEE software through a developed and tested software plug-in. This provides an ideal solution for companies who are deploying information- rich portals. Open Market is the only vendor to provide dynamic delivery of relevant, personalized content to portal users within the iPlanet Portal Server channels.

"Teaming with leading ISVs such as Open Market helps provide the best-in- class content management and delivery capability to our Portal Server customers," said Wes Wasson, iPlanet vice president of product marketing. "The ability to manage and deliver targeted content improves the success of any portal by improving employee productivity and providing a much richer experience and significantly faster time to service."

Open Market's Content Server Enterprise Edition empowers business users to create, edit, approve, publish, and dynamically deliver content to a variety of destinations and devices. With this integration, iPlanet Portal Server "channels" are used to access Open Market's applications and the content they manage. For example, one channel can allow geographically dispersed content contributors to access Open Market's applications with a single sign-on. Another channel allows iPlanet Portal Server users to access news and company information that is targeted to their role in the organization. The combination of Open Market's CSEE and the iPlanet Portal Server is an ideal solution for developers, editors and viewers.

"The iPlanet Portal Server is an excellent platform for building Intranet, Extranet or Internet portals," said Joe Alwan, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Open Market. "This relationship helps enable our joint customers to deliver personalized content, services, business processes and applications to employees, suppliers, partners and customers in a highly scalable, highly secure portal environment."

Open Market and iPlanet worked in conjunction with Migration Software Systems to allow the two environments to operate as a single solution. "Together, our engineers developed an interface which enables single sign-on and authentication, providing seamless access and logical presentation of Open Market's development, staging, and delivery environments," said Tom Morton, vice president of Migration Software Systems. "Since Open Market's architecture is open-standards-based and runs natively on the J2EE technology compliant iPlanet Application Server, the integration with iPlanet Portal Server was easier to build and is more seamless for the customer."

Availability

The integrated solution is available today from both Open Market and iPlanet. The two organizations are finalizing agreements regarding continued development and support of the integrated plug-in.
