LexisNexis Adopts XyEnterprise XML Content Management and Publishing
Software for Global Content Management Solution

Content@ Content Manager Promotes Content Re-use, Assembly and Publishing
for World’s Leading Legal Publisher

READING, MA - September 17, 2003 - XyEnterprise, the leading developer of
XML content management and enterprise publishing solutions, announced today
that LexisNexis, a global leader in legal, news and business information
services, has adopted its Content@ content management and workflow
technology for its renowned set of legal titles, including Matthew Bender,
Michie, Shepards, and Butterworths. The Content@ solution has been
implemented in the United States, United Kingdom, and Pacific Rim.
Additional deployments are also planned for Latin America and Europe.

The Content@ content management and workflow system is optimized to manage
large volumes of XML content, as well as business rules for assembling and
publishing this important information. LexisNexis has deployed the Content@
product locally and as an enterprise hosted application, available to
multiple product and business groups. The system is used to create and
manage versions of content components and to assemble these components into
complete documents or products.

The benefits of the Content@ solution to LexisNexis are numerous. Content@’s
open API enabled LexisNexis to integrate the application into their
worldwide technology platform and leverage its content management,
versioning, user access, and re-use capabilities almost immediately. In
addition to providing an open and scalable architecture, Content@ has
enabled LexisNexis to reduce the time required to publish updates to their
vast product set. It has also enabled the publishing of several new
revenue-generating titles from the re-use of content managed in the Content@

The companies also announced today that LexisNexis has standardized its
print and PDF publishing operations on another XyEnterprise product, XML
Professional Publisher (XPP). Leading companies have implemented XPP for
complex and automated publishing tasks in a wide range of reference,
financial, technical and other publishing environments. LexisNexis has
deployed XPP at multiple sites worldwide and has implemented an enterprise
accessible, hosted XPP environment capable of supporting business units
across the United States and beyond. Integrated with Content@, XPP provides
highly automated pagination and rendering of LexisNexis XML content for
delivery in print, looseleaf and PDF form.

Dan Hill, LexisNexis senior vice president, Global Business and Editorial
Systems, stated, "A key component of our global technology and business
strategy is to build on applications that can be leveraged enterprise-wide
while meeting the diverse and expanding needs of LexisNexis and our
customers. Scalable, best-of-breed technologies that easily integrate with
LexisNexis-developed applications and infrastructure can dramatically reduce
the time of deployment and improve our return on investment. The Content@
application, with its XML re-use capabilities and open API, has provided an
immediate impact on the efficient creation, update and delivery of our
product sets.”
