Open Text Unveils Web Site Management Solution
Open Text Corporation, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, has unveiled Web Site Management 10.1, featuring usability enhancements to accelerate common tasks and make it easier for website managers to integrate with corporate information and resources along with a sample project that speeds up delivery of new websites.
Officials with Open Text said that it also offers integration points to many consumer social applications including Facebook (News - Alert) and Twitter as well as enhanced native social capabilities with Open Text Social Communities.
According to company officials, the latest release of Web Site Management is the next iteration of Web Solutions 10, a major release introduced last year.
A key member of Open Text's industry-leading portfolio of Web Content Management (WCM) products, Web Site Management is a powerful, easy-to-use Web site application that empowers employees to keep content fresh and relevant and offers extensive multiple-language support and social tools.
“At the core of an engaging Web experience is vibrant, relevant content and an immersive social community integrated with internal business processes and infrastructure,” said Lubor Ptacek, vice president of product marketing at Open Text, in a statement.
Ptacek said that Web Site Management makes this possible with rapid implementation, a strong reputation for usability, and a useful set of integrations with content sources.
“As demonstrated by the release of 10.1, our strategy is to continue building on these strengths,” he said.
Company officials said that one of the focus points for Web Site Management 10.1 was to not just make it easier for editors and administrators to complete website management tasks, but to actually accelerate daily editorial work.
On the back-end, Web Site Management 10.1 features a number of enhancements to servers for management and delivery of content, including a new graphical user interface that aligns the different server components.
On the integration front, Web Site Management 10.1 allows users to fully tap the extensive social capabilities in Open Text Social Communities (formerly Vignette Social Media) and lets them take advantage of Open Text Media Management 7 for managing digital media assets from across an enterprise.
It also enhances third-party application integration with extended portlet connectors. Using a new HTTP connector, any type of social media component, such as Facebook or Twitter, can be added and administered.
