From the S-1:
Sequoia Software Corporation is a leading provider of XML based Internet infrastructure software for creating interactive e-business portals. Interactive portals are a new generation of e-business solutions that are designed to tap into today's vast corporate and Internet information reservoirs in order to bring the right information to the right person at the right time. This new type of XML-based information portal is capable of intelligently aggregating data and content from disparate sources, presenting that information based upon a user's profile, and enabling the user to interact with the original information source. These capabilities meet a growing need for software products that can sift through the increasing volumes of corporate and Internet-based information to identify and facilitate new e-business opportunities. From corporate intranets and extranets to Internet-based content and commerce providers, our products address a growing demand for a new breed of dynamic, flexible and standards-based e-business software that brings information and people together.
Our flagship product is the Sequoia XML Portal Server, or XPS. We believe that XPS is the first interactive portal software product that is intrinsically based on eXtensible Markup Language, or XML. By using XML, XPS is distinctively capable of integrating, extracting and aggregating user-defined data and content from any variety of disparate information sources. Once XPS aggregates information, it utilizes our patent pending XML indexing technology to provide users with context-based searching capabilities so that they can access and interact with the most relevant information available, personalized for each user's individualized needs. For example, one of our customers uses XPS to keep its sales representatives better informed about their customers, prospects and products to enhance revenue opportunities. Another of our customers utilizes XPS to open its information resources to its partners and affiliates in order to broaden their market share. These examples demonstrate the flexibility and versatility of XPS to help our customers aggregate and re-use their information resources to create new e-business solutions. We have received the Microsoft Industry Solutions Award, the Deloitte & Touche Fast 500 Award, the Davies Award of Excellence and the Maryland Technology Fast 50 Award.
