Eprise Corporation and Teijin Systems Technology Ltd. (TST) announced commercial availability of Eprise Participant Server for the Japanese marketplace. The Japanese version of the Eprise dynamic content management platform is the result of a joint-development partnership with TST, which will sell and service Participant Server throughout Japan. Participant Server is a platform that enables business professionals to create, update, and target Web-based communications via the Internet, intranets, or extranets. The Asia/Pacific region, including Japan, presents a significant market opportunity for advanced content management solutions as Internet usage increases. According to TST, Participant Server’s open architecture and features, such as the ability to control content access, editing, and submission based on an organization’s own management structure, as well as language management for international sites, position Participant Server strongly for Japan and Asia/Pacific’s e-business opportunities. Like the company’s main product, Eprise Participant Server, the Japanese version operates as a Web server plug in providing event driven services for controlling content contribution, management, and distribution. No specialized server scripting language is required, as all functions are accessible via easy-to-use Web browser forms. Eprise Participant Server is available through TST in Japan this month. Participant Server supports Windows NT 4.0, Internet Information Server, and SQL Server 6.5 or 7. www.tjnsys.co.jp, www.eprise.com
