Lawyers need a little love from content management systems, too, and the recent product and partnership announcements from Open Text and Interwoven should fit the bill nicely.The Interwoven announcement is a partnership with LexisNexis, which will integrate Lexis Search Advantage with Interwoven's Universal Search.
By taking advantage of the new offering, legal firms will be able to cross-reference information from their own repositories with information from Lexis searches. The idea is that this will streamline workflow and make legal research significantly more efficient.
The implementation appears to be pretty slick and firms with an established Interwoven enterprise content management platform will certainly be interested in checking out the solution. For a full rundown of the details, check out Interwoven's partnership announcement.
Also, Open Text has made a name for itself by creating enterprise content management systems focused on serving verticals. It's particularly strong in the legal arena, and its recent announcement of an e-mail life cycle management tool does a nice job of rounding out the product offering.
The tool is intended to help firms set up rules for e-mail management, including the ability to automatically file by subject and client, as well as support for archiving and disposing of e-mail as appropriate. The tools integrate tightly with Microsoft Exchange Server and Open Text's document management tools.
