Sporting goods manufacturer adidas-Salomon AG is using Interwoven Inc's Content Infrastructure product suite to build and manage the information requirements of a global extranet linking approximately 20 of its worldwide subsidiaries.

In the first implementation phase, employees will be able to create, update and share web content.

One of the key reasons adidas-Salomon chose Interwoven's Content Infrastructure was its easy integration with its existing IT environment.

"adidas-Salomon IT investments must have the flexibility to support a wide array of global, regional and national service requirements. Our markets vary dramatically and, in many cases, require tailored solutions," said Faris Momani, head of global eMarketing, adidas-Salomon AG. "Interwoven's Content Infrastructure enables adidas-Salomon to effectively manage web content across the connected business units throughout the company."

The next step in the software implementation is to integrate the catalogue software into the Content Infrastructure environment to better manage all database and file system assets, including application code and XML.
