divine Adds Significant Enhancements to Industry's Best-In-Class Enterprise Content Management Solution; Latest Version of Divine Content Server Delivers Industry-Leading Flexibility And Performance, While Making it Easier Than Ever for Business Users Across And Outside the Organization to Contribute Content.

divine, inc. , a leading provider of solutions for the extended enterprise, today announced the availability of Version 5.0 of divine Content Server(TM), the industry-leading content management solution for the extended enterprise. divine Content Server provides the best-in-class enterprise content management infrastructure for easily and cost-effectively deploying a single Web site or hundreds of internally and externally facing Web initiatives from a single infrastructure. It also has the usability features to ensure easy adoption of the system by a wide range of business users. The latest version makes it easier than ever for global organizations to manage and deliver relevant content to Web sites, portals and extranets, while extending participation in the content development lifecycle by enhancing the ability of non-technical users and business partners to contribute content. The new features include:
 * divine Content Server DocLink, which makes saving documents to and
 retrieving documents from Content Server as simple as working with
 local files in Microsoft Windows Explorer. This dramatically decreases
 the barrier-to-entry for business users and encourages wide
 participation in the content management process, lowering the total
 cost of ownership. Content Server DocLink also supports metadata
 insertion, revision tracking, and workflow initiation directly within
 Windows Explorer.

 * divine Content Server Asset Filters, which automatically transform
 content from common document types (such as Microsoft Word or Excel)
 into HTML or XML when a document is saved to Content Server. This
 extensible framework serves as a key integration point for other divine
 and third-party applications and content sources, providing significant
 new value to content without impacting system usability.

 * divine Content Server Autoclassifier, an advanced taxonomy and
 classification capability that leverages technology divine acquired
 from Northern Light to automatically categorize and tag content saved
 to Content Server, saving time and ensuring consistency and accuracy.

 * Enhanced globalization features, including localized interfaces and
 expanded language support, that enable companies to easily manage
 content for multiple, multi-lingual sites on a single installation.
 Localized versions in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German,
 Japanese and Korean allow administrators and content contributors work
 in their preferred language; and

 * Expanded support for Web services, enabling organizations to easily
 share content and business logic with partners and to develop custom
 content applications. Content Server contains a set of predefined Web
 services that can be used by any Web application to dynamically access
 and present content within that application. It also allows developers
 to create new Web services to expose any custom business logic within
 Content Server.

Allmerica Financial Corp., a holding company for a diversified group of insurance and financial services companies based in Worcester, Mass., chose divine Content Server as the enterprise content management infrastructure to support a variety of internal and external content management initiatives that it will deploy over time.

"By deploying divine Content Server, the business users who own content will have greater control over the content management process, ensuring that the information on our sites is more timely and relevant," said Jim McClafferty, vice president of enterprise IT for Allmerica. "What we really like about Content Server 5.0 is that it puts content management into the hands of regular business users -- without their having to learn a complex new application or alter the way they create and edit content. At the same time, Content Server provides one of the most robust platforms for cost-effectively deploying multiple Web initiatives."

As an industry leader in improving information sharing and interactions throughout the extended enterprise, divine is the only company that combines world-class content management software with professional services expertise to help organizations improve the usability, stability and performance of their Web sites, while reducing the cost of site maintenance. divine's approach integrates brand strategy, content strategy and user experience to create interactions that drive revenue and reduce costs. Its services include Web site implementation and optimization, online brand strategy, user experience design, Web site technology, multiple Web site management, and content management.

"Companies that view content as a strategic asset and effectively manage that content operate more effectively both internally and with external partners, and interact more intelligently with customers, whether those customers want to buy, get help or be entertained," said Joe Forgione, president and general manager, Web, Content Management and Collaboration Solutions for divine. "This latest version of divine Content Server enables organizations to quickly and cost-effectively deploy systems that let content contributors easily participate in content management and integrate with existing applications and database. As a result, they are able to leverage the wealth of content that exists within the organization in other repositories and employee desktops to support more informed decision-making internally and to make each customer interaction successful."
