Inmagic, Inc. announced the release of Inmagic Presto! – a Web-based content catalog for accessing, sharing and re-purposing information assets. Built on the Inmagic Content Server using the Microsoft SQL Server backend, Presto!
leverages the Microsoft .NET technologies to provide unified access to search, identify and retrieve content no matter where it resides. Inmagic Presto! is designed to help information-intensive organizations maximize value from their information assets and interoperate within the overall IT infrastructure. Presto! can serve as a repository for housing content from legacy systems as well as maintain metadata about an organization’s content whether it resides in the Presto! database or elsewhere. In addition, Presto! automates the capture, aggregation and categorization of the content to provide integrated search in order to facilitate information discovery. Combining local control of content with enterprise-wide access, Presto! requires that content managers need only manage the lifecycle of the original content. www.inmagic.com
