Vorsite Corporation announced the release of their new Connector Technologies for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search and the EMC|documentum Content Management Platform. For individual EMC|documentum platform owners that decide to utilize the new Microsoft Office 2007 System or begin to integrate using Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 or adopt Microsoft Enterprise Search, this announcement means that their existing Documentum content management platform will still be able to take advantage of the experience Microsoft Technologies provide end-users. The Vorsite Connector Technologies were designed on the Microsoft .Net Platform and use standards based web services to provide true enterprise application integration. The Vorsite Connector Technologies currently consist of two main connector types: The Vorsite Content Connectors and Vorsite Search Connectors. Both provide a connection platform for Line-of-Business applications like the EMC|documentum and FileNet P8 Content Management Systems. These Connectors are designed to address four areas of integration: Content/document Sharing, Portal Integration, and content/document Migration. http://www.vorsite.com
One of the most important trends in technology over the past two years has been the emergence of Wikis. Like many newish technologies there is a lot of controversy and confusion about Wikis. To many people the word Wiki is linked primarily to the Wikipedia and to the other projects of Wikimedia. To others, Wiki technology is open source collaboration technology. And more recently, Wiki technology has been developed to provide easily installed, high value solutions to a number of enterprise level workflow problems. Over the next week or so, I’ll be writing entries on a number of key questions concerning Wikis and their role in the strategy for forward looking publishing organizations.
One of the themes that we’ll be stressing on this blog is cross-media publishing strategies and we’ll als be offering several sessions on this topic at the SanFrancisco Gilbane Conference in April. We’d like to hear your nominations for examples of products that started life in a traditional print format but have now evolved to successful product offerings with multiple media options. We’ll also like to know about successful new product offerings that were created in a media-neutral approach. To respond, please e-mail me Steve Paxhia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
