MetaCarta GTS Documentum Connector Receives EMC "Designed for EMC Documentum" Accreditation

MetaCarta Enables EMC Documentum Customers to Map, Categorize, and Search Documents Based on Location

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- MetaCarta®, Inc., a leading provider of geographic intelligence solutions, today announced that the MetaCarta GTS Documentum Connector has received the "Designed for EMC Documentum" logo designation, a mark of quality and value that customers insist on in enterprise applications. The "Designed for EMC Documentum" accreditation demonstrates that the GTS Documentum Connector has successfully met a comprehensive set of criteria for good design, development and implementation.

MetaCarta's unique technology combines traditional text or keyword search with powerful geographic search so EMC Documentum users can map, categorize, and search documents based on geography. The GTS Documentum Connector is an optional component to MetaCarta Geographic Text Search (GTS) and MetaCarta geOdrive that enables users to search for documents using geographic criteria. Documentum administrators establish and configure connections between MetaCarta GTS and MetaCarta geOdrive to Documentum repositories.

The GTS Documentum Connector received design accreditation by meeting high standards for application design, development, configuration, installation processes and overall quality. As a member of the EMC Documentum Application Developer Program, MetaCarta received specialized design consultation and guidance, along with access to dedicated EMC content management technical resources. MetaCarta will also be able to include specialized "Designed for EMC Documentum" logos on packaging, marketing collateral, and other promotional materials pertaining to their accredited offering, signifying to customers that the GTS Documentum Connector meets high standards for architectural compliance with the Documentum architecture and leverages development best practices.

"By providing MetaCarta GTS Documentum Connector as a solution based on the EMC Documentum platform, MetaCarta is leading the way for EMC Documentum users to map, categorize, and search documents using geographic parameters across Documentum repositories," said Rob Tarkoff, Senior Vice President of Strategy, Business Development and Alliances, EMC Software Group. "The offering's status as 'Designed for EMC Documentum'-accredited demonstrates their commitment to the Documentum platform and the quality of their offering."

"MetaCarta is extremely pleased to join the EMC Documentum Application Developer Program, and we are proud to have attained the 'Designed for EMC Documentum' status for the GTS Documentum Connector," said Claudine Bianchi, vice president of marketing for MetaCarta. "Location intelligence offers an opportunity for businesses to find new ways to compete and become more effective. Location intelligence can improve operations common to many industries, such as human resources, real estate planning, combining information from disparate data resources resulting from a merger or acquisition and the development of marketing or sales campaigns. In terms of business processes, location can add critical input to supply chain management, whether it's the procure-to-pay interaction with suppliers or the order-to-fulfillment relation with customers. And last but not least, location plays a huge role in first responders and disaster response."

The EMC Documentum Application Developer Program helps ISVs, VSPs and SIs target, design, develop and go-to-market with successful offerings based on the EMC Documentum platform. As a member, partners can submit their offering to be considered for "Designed for EMC Documentum" accreditation, which ensures their offering has met all requirements to be certified on the Documentum platform.
