IBM Lures Corechange into Enterprise Clique

IBM Corp. carried away another partner in its enterprise wave Friday by adding Corechange, Inc. to its PartnerWorld for Developers Program, a worldwide program supporting developers who build solutions using IBM technologies.

The first stage of this partnership will be the integration of Corechange's unique flagship product, Coreport, with IBM's enterprise information portal offering.

IBM's (IBM) EIP offering enables federated searches (simultaneous searches across disparate data sources) using parametric and contextual search technologies that can generate results of the most relevant information. Information can be accessed from IBM's content manager, the Web, file systems, e-mail, audio and video XML/HTML applications, and others.

"We're pleased that Corechange was able to complete full integration of Coreport with our IBM enterprise information portal offering in just a matter of days," said Jim Kelly, vice president of marketing, IBM data management solutions. "Coreport's wireless capability, role-based business content features and browser-driven environment, coupled with the IBM Enterprise Information Portal, will deliver significant benefits to our mutual e-business customers."
