Percussion Software introduced version 5 of its Rhythmyx Content Management System (CMS), a major release that extends Rhythmyx into an ECM solution. It also features an architecture for system scaling – De-Coupled Delivery – which supports new delivery platforms as they are adopted. New capabilities in release 5 include: A new Document Management Module; new Rhythmyx Content Connectors for Oracle9i Applications Server and BEA WebLogic portals, the MediaBin Digital Asset Management (DAM) system, and Kofax’ Ascent Capture; a new user interface for managing all ECM content; enhanced globalization support for management of multi-lingual content delivered to multiple audiences; and a new Web Services Developer Kit. Rhythmyx 5.0 is sold as a comprehensive ECM solution, or as a basic solution for Web Content Management (WCM) implementations, with a smooth upgrade path to the full ECM product. Both configurations are built on the same ECM foundation code base. Rhythmyx 5 supports Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Solaris platforms and is available for licensing immediately.
