Ipedo Enhances XML Information Hub

Ipedo introduced the latest version of its XML Information Hub, incorporating several new product enhancements to facilitate the growing use of XML in Web and Web Services applications. The Ipedo XML Information Hub 3.3 now features integrated content conversion, rules-based auto-organization, a universal XQuery engine and enhanced XML Views for Web Services. The Ipedo XML Information Hub – with its Integration Manager, XML Database and Web Express modules – combines integration with information management capabilities to make information available on demand, enabling organizations to unify their data and content sources and combine them for use in multiple applications. For example, pharmaceutical companies can speed drug research by aggregating and mining genomic and clinical data from multiple online sources; financial institutions can combine data from multiple back-end sources into new compliance documents for regulatory review; and manufacturers can combine relevant pieces from product documentation for presentation in customer and partner portals.
