FatWire Announces FirstSite

FatWire Software announced the rollout of FirstSite, which is a set of tools and best practices that helps companies using FatWire Content Server get their first Web site or application running quickly while providing a foundation for future expansion. FirstSite includes a collection of standard templates and site components that are common to most sites, combined with documentation, training, a rich developer community, and best practices methodology. FatWire and its solution partners are using FirstSite as the basis for developing content-centric applications for specific vertical markets. With only minor, cosmetic alterations, developers can use the code in FirstSite to implement a first site, while simultaneously learning how to utilize Content Server’s capabilities, such as dynamic content delivery, personalization, caching, and product catalogs. www.fatwire.com

Open Text Launches ‘Communities’ Software for Collaboration

Open Text Corporation introduced a solution for online “communities of practice” which bring together people in an organization with similar responsibilities or interests. The solution allows, for example, marketing professionals or purchasing managers to connect in ways they couldn’t before, providing a forum where they can share information and best practices, and improve processes. Called Livelink for Communities of Practice, the solution provides a central workspace in Livelink where members can publish relevant news, share documents, participate in member Weblogs, arrange online meetings and hold Webcasts. The solution also tracks the contributions of participants to help members identify experts in the community on specific subjects. With Livelink for Communities of Practice, each community workspace offers a newspaper-like front page with syndicated headlines and content sections, where interesting patterns and trends are “bubbled up” for the community. Livelink for Communities of Practice is available immediately and works with Livelink 9.2 or higher on all supported platforms. www.opentext.com
