Wednesday, 28. September 2005 07:00

Basel, Switzerland and Irvine, California - September 28, 2005 - Day
Software (SWX: DAYN, OTC:DYIHY), a leading provider of global content
management and content infrastructure software, today announced that
the company is launching a series of standardized connectors for
leading legacy repositories. The repository connectors are fully
compliant with the Content Repository for Java Technology API
standard (JSR170). The first of these groundbreaking interfaces to be
delivered is for EMC Documentum. The Day connector will make
enterprise content stored in Documentum's legacy repository
accessible through the new industry standard, creating greater
interoperability and openness. Other connectors that are in
development include interfaces for FileNet, OpenText LiveLink,
Microsoft SharePoint, IBM Domino.doc, Software AG Tamino, and
Interwoven, among others.

The EMC Documentum connector is part of Day's repository connectivity
family of products that enable enterprises to access and manage all
enterprise content through a standardized API. This technology allows
the implementation of content access, search, versioning,
synchronization and consolidation, leveraging future-proof
standardization, even if the content resides in data stores that do
not provide a JSR170 compliant API.

"JSR170 technology and connectors are key components for unlocking
stored content and eliminating the information silos created by
application-specific storage mechanisms and proprietary APIs," said
David Nuescher, CTO, Day Software. "Day has been at the forefront of
developing and deploying these technologies that enable companies to
substantially reduce the complexity and cost of their information
systems while making valuable content accessible throughout the
enterprise and beyond."

Day's Repository Connectors provide a standardized JSR170 interface,
allowing companies to access their most valuable assets - information
about its specific business, its processes, products, customers, and
documents that previously resided in a proprietary repository. These
documents and information can now be accessed through the JSR170

"The unprecedented success of JSR170, has lead to numerous requests
from our channel partners and customers for the development of
standardized connectors to legacy repositories," said Chris Stark,
Senior VP Sales, Day Software. "These repository connectors will
allow organizations to unlock and combine content from different
repositories to better support business processes and departmental
content-centric applications using and managing enterprise content."
