Strapi CMS v4 released

Strapi, provider of an open-source “headless” content management system (CMS), announced the stable release of Strapi v4, including a new design system, user interface, plug-in API (application programming interface), database query engine, and improved REST and GraphQL API performance.

Strapi enables developers to build projects fast by providing a customizable API that lets them use their favorite tools. Content teams can use Strapi independently to manage all types of content and distribute it from the central CMS to any channel, including websites, mobile apps, or connected devices. With Strapi v4, Community users are able to:

  • Easily create and maintain plug-ins thanks to a new programmatic API and an inclusive Design System optimized for accessibility, thus providing a much smoother experience for both developers and content managers.
  • Quickly migrate and upgrade between different Strapi versions.
  • Give control to plug-in and application developers on data querying through a more flexible and powerful database query engine.
  • Make the REST and GraphQL API simpler, more powerful and customizable.
  • Manage the access of the Content API through API Tokens administered from the admin panel to authenticate REST and GraphQL queries.
  • Quickly spot and fix errors in applications with standardized error codes and context.

RWS embeds semantic AI capabilities in Tridion

RWS, provider of language, content management and intellectual property services, has embedded semantic AI within its Tridion content platform. The new semantic AI capabilities go beyond traditional approaches to personalization, delivering smart recommendations and intuitive search results that guide customers towards finding accurate answers to their queries. Tridion is an intelligent content platform that enables organizations to create, manage and deliver multilingual digital content and digital experiences to customers, employees and partners across any channel.

Companies can use these new capabilities across their digital experience and self-service platforms, and across internal systems and intranets. Semantic AI will automatically tag content and generate metadata across an organization’s pool of information, following a well-defined knowledge model. This helps ensure content is classified accurately and consistently for any touchpoint, and eases the time-consuming burden of content authors to manually tag content.

Semantic AI is available for the various components of Tridion: Tridion Sites for Web content Management, Tridion Docs for Structured Content Management and Tridion Dynamic Experience Delivery for search and headless content publishing. The new semantic AI capabilities are available through an OEM partnership with the Semantic Web Company.

MongoDB announces pay-as-you-go offering in AWS Marketplace

MongoDB, Inc., a modern general purpose database platform, announced that it will make it easier for customers to build, scale, and manage data-rich applications with MongoDB Atlas in AWS Marketplace in calendar Q1 2022.

MongoDB is also launching the capability for customers to buy MongoDB Professional Services in AWS Marketplace at AWS re:Invent, providing enterprises with one place to implement, configure, and run MongoDB workloads.

Earlier this year, MongoDB and AWS launched integrations between MongoDB Atlas and AWS Wavelength, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, Amazon EventBridge, AWS PrivateLink, AWS App Runner, Amazon Managed Grafana, and more. With today’s new AWS Marketplace integrations, AWS customers can enjoy the benefits of consolidated billing via their AWS account.
