Content Management Server 2002 Will Ship by Year End

Microsoft Corp. announced plans this week at its MEC 2002 conference in Anaheim, Calif., to ship Content Management Server 2002 by the end of the year.

Content Management Server is the last of the .NET Enterprise Servers scheduled to ship in 2002. Also on Tuesday, Microsoft announced that the 2002 version of Content Management Server will be its last as a distinct product. Content Management Server, Commerce Server 2002 and BizTalk Server 2002 will all be combined into one e-business mega-server code-named "Jupiter" that is slated for a 2003-2004 release.

Content Management Server is Microsoft's middleware for building, deploying and maintaining content-rich business Web sites. Microsoft acquired the product by purchasing the COM-based Resolution content management system from nCompass Solutions. The 2001 version of Content Management Server was largely a rebranded version of the nCompass product with some performance and scalability tuning.

"This version is really the new Microsoft-based architecture of the product," says Chris Ramsey, product manager for Content Management Server. "We made significant changes in both the templating system and the development side."

The feature set for Content Management Server 2002 has not changed since Microsoft unveiled the beta version of the product this spring.

New features in Content Management Server include direct publishing from Microsoft Word, deep integration with Visual Studio .NET and the .NET Framework, native support for XML Web services and integration with Application Center for faster deployment.

Pricing will be set at $42,000 per CPU, approximately the same level as pricing for Content Management Server 2001.
