Intergraph targets feds

Intergraph Corp. is pursuing federal opportunities with a recently recast document management product line designed to improve the organization and distribution of an agency's technical information.

Intergraph in September changed the name of its document management suite from DM2 to Asset and Information Management (AIM).

The product set extends beyond traditional document management to include Product Data Management capabilities. PDM systems maintain enterprisewide technical data in a manufacturing environment.

"The scope is broader than document management " said David H. Wilkins executive manager of marketing for the Information Management and Foundation Division at Intergraph Software Solutions.

Intergraph has sold file and document management products since the early 1980s but the most recent product push is intended to provide a greater corporate focus on document management Wilkins said. Intergraph's goal is to generate $100 million - about 10 percent of overall company revenue - from information management in 1997.

The AIM product line encompasses multiple modules including workflow full-text retrieval a World Wide Web gateway and PDM. The software runs under Microsoft Corp.'s Windows NT as well as Sun Microsystems Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Co.'s Unix systems. AIM users include the Defense Logistics Agency's Defense Fuel Supply Center Fort Belvoir Va. and Edwards Air Force Base Calif. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command's headquarters in Alexandria Va. recently selected AIM for a pilot project and will begin installation later this month Intergraph said.

Company officials said AIM products are geared toward agencies that need to better manage and distribute technical documents within their organizations. Contracts such as the Navy's Computer-Aided Design II focused on mechanical design but are now exploring information management issues. AIM products are available on all three of Intergraph's CAD-II contracts and the Army's Sustaining Base Information Services contract.

Robert Mott a technical manager at Intergraph said military organizations are interested in moving information more efficiently among planning engineering and contracts organizations.
