First Release of Content Management Server Slated for Q3

ATLANTA -- Microsoft Corp. plans to ship its first content management server in the third quarter, a company official told attendees at the TechEd 2001 developer show.

Content Management Server 2001 is the name of the product, which will be part of the .NET Enterprise Server family. Microsoft acquired the complete content management server earlier this year from NCompass Lab Inc., which had just issued version 4.0 of its Resolution product.

Microsoft will not make any changes to the functionality of Resolution in the initial release. "It's a straight rebrand," said Paul Flessner, senior vice president for .NET Enterprise Servers at Microsoft. "We wanted to get it on the market."

The delay from Microsoft's purchase of Resolution in March and its expected availability in Q3, stems from Microsoft's need to prepare the product for global markets, Flessner said. Microsoft continues to sell the content management server in the United States under the Resolution brand.

Unlike some better known content management systems on the market, Resolution is a COM-based server, making it a sensible fit for Microsoft. Ncompass' 4.0 version had also just added integration with Microsoft's Commerce Server 2000 and SQL Server 2000.

Two Content Management Server product managers demonstrated features of the server during Flessner's TechEd keynote Monday morning.

Highlights included the tool's ability to distinguish between a desktop Web browser and a PDA and render the page accordingly.

The pair also demonstrated the workflow capabilities of the server.
