Platform Vendors Partner for ECI

  • 9-Jun-2003

Enterprise Content Integration (ECI) vendor ContextMedia announced a partnership today with IBM to integrate with the latter's "DB2 Content Manager" product. ECI competior Venetica has a similar deal with BEA. This trend tells us a couple of things. First, ECI vendors are still small players who need big partners to get traction. But secondly, it provides one more hint that appservers and databases -- not pretty-looking portals -- are going to provide the mixing bowls where serious content integration happens...
