Xythos Expands Government Business


SAN FRANCISCO - Xythos Software, a leading developer of basic content services software, says new government customers who have purchased its open standards-based content management technology. The new Xythos customers include the United Nations, the United States Senate, MIT Lincoln Laboratory and the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation. Xythos also announced that its Enterprise Document Management Suite 6.0 has received final DoD 5015.2 certification by the Joint Interoperability Test Command, the Department of Defense’s sole certifier for joint interoperability.

Customers cite the growing need to improve content security throughout their organizations, coupled with the challenges related to using email as a file-sharing tool, as key reasons for their selection of Xythos. Basic Content Services solutions such as the Xythos EDMS address these needs by providing a simpler alternative to traditional ECM systems at a cost which allows virtually every employee access. Xythos’ integration of a records management module within the EDMS’ familiar web interface appeals to government agencies and enterprise organizations seeking comprehensive ways to respond to regulatory compliance requirements.

Government agencies engaged in federally-funded research programs have also benefited from the flexible security model employed by Xythos. “We needed an easy, yet secure way to share missile research data across the country that didn’t require FTP,” said Tom Schultz IT Manager, Air and Missile Defense Technology Division at Lincoln Labs. “Xythos provides us with quick access to our research across domains which helps us improve collaboration,” he added.

Xythos has avoided the trend to require customers to purchase an extra software license in order to manage official records common among other software vendors. Instead, the company chose to develop a complete records management system within its existing software to ensure that responding to compliance challenges was as seamless and natural as possible. “While we developed EDMS 6.0 to meet specific government compliance requirements, a key design goal was to make the application generally useful,” said Tom Grant, vice president of product management at Xythos. “That means that it should be equally capable of meeting an individual’s collaborative needs as an organization’s compliance requirements,” he observed.
