Marimba To Offer Document-Management Software

Marimba Inc. rolled out new software yesterday designed to help companies manage and distribute electronic documents over intranets, extranets, and the Internet.

DocService facilitates automated deliveries and updates of company documents--from text files to complex HTML documents that include links and subdocuments--to specific users or groups of users and to Web servers. Urgent documents can be tagged with alert mechanisms so users are notified when a report is available. The system provides a full audit trail, including delivery success or failure and whether or not a document has been viewed.

DocService monitors changes in documents, comparing the current and previous versions and sending a changes-only update to users.

To ensure that users see only those documents they are authorized to see, Marimba has added security mechanisms that include end-user authentication via digital certificates. The system also employs user ID and password access controls that can be integrated with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol servers, NDS servers, and Windows NT domain services. DocServices also offers encryption features.

Available in the third quarter, the system starts at $1,000 per DocService server and $100 per DocService client.
