Glides Announces UniSite 2000 for Multilingual Content Management

Glides Inc. announced the availability of UniSite 2000, a database-driven platform for creating and managing multilingual Web sites. UniSite 2000 helps corporations manage their multilingual websites more efficiently, create a site optimized for doing business and communicating with customers and partners in international markets, and to organize content by country, region, or group. Based on a platform developed and case-tested with partners, UniSite 2000 offers remote content administration, universal character recognition that accommodates double-byte character sets such as Japanese, bi-directional text for Hebrew and Arabic, and integration with XML-enabled applications. A key feature of UniSite 2000 is the reuse of existing sites. With UniSite’s integrated Assistant, existing content is tagged and ready for globalization in minutes. And because UniSite can be delivered as an outsourced ASP solution, companies can avoid the hardware costs associated with traditional multilingual solutions.

Interwoven & Bluestone Collaborate on B2B Content Syndication

Interwoven, Inc. and Bluestone Software, Inc. announced that they are collaborating to create next-generation content syndication services. Interwoven has agreed to license certain components of Bluestone’s J2EE-based platform as the foundation for extensions to Interwoven’s syndication offering. Together, Interwoven and Bluestone will develop these extensions to enable high volume content exchange. Interwoven’s content syndication solutions intend to address many key challenges faced by e-business application providers; for example, the ability to dynamically access and syndicate assets directly from the content repositories to multiple application delivery systems. These syndication solutions will build upon Interwoven’s open, standards-based content management and replication technologies, and will leverage the subscription database and scheduling services offered by Bluestone’s J2EE-based platform. In addition, Interwoven’s syndication extensions will enjoy Bluestone’s implementation of a J2EE-based platform including Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1, which Bluestone has enhanced with global-class services. These services include XML persistence mapping, Dynamic XSL Stylesheets, load balancing, application management, security, as well as Universal Listener Framework (ULF) scheduling services. Performance-oriented facilities unique to Bluestone, such as Customer Facing Fault Tolerance, Internet Quality of Service (IQS), and Hot Versioning are also included as part of the license agreement. www.interwoven.com, www.bluestone.com
