JustSystems and Mark Logic Partner to Help with XBRL

JustSystems and Mark Logic Corporation announced a technology partnership that will enable enterprise organizations to streamline data aggregation, content creation and publishing of financial reports using XBRL. Driven by XBRL compliance requirements set forth by the SEC and by the need to eliminate accounting errors and fraud, JustSystems and Mark Logic will offer customers a technology integration that combines JustSystems xfy XBRL Report and MarkLogic Server. This integration option allows enterprise organizations to push complex financial XBRL content from MarkLogic Server to content applications built on the JustSystems xfy platform at any stage of a business workflow. Using this functionality, organizations can also analyze and create detailed financial reports from XBRL content and add XBRL-aware document management functionality to their existing MarkLogic Server deployments. JustSystems xfy XBRL Report lets users review and analyze XBRL data and share their results with others. To that end, xfy consumes XBRL, creating content that uses the XBRL data and publishes it in a web-ready HTML or PDF. Other users can view the published reports without any special software, just a standard web browser. http://www.justsystems.com/, http://www.marklogic.com

JustSystems Updates Content Contribution Capabilities in XMetaL Reviewer

JustSystems announced XMetaL Reviewer 5.5, the latest version of the company’s collaborative XML document reviewing software. Reinforcing the central role of document review and collaboration in the overall authoring process, XMetaL Reviewer lets subject matter experts and others contribute content directly to the documents under review. The latest version of XMetaL Reviewer also gains usability, connectivity, integration, and administration enhancements. XMetaL Reviewer moves the document review process beyond a read-only exercise that prevents reviewers from suggesting detailed edits to the documents being reviewed. Now, reviewers can actively contribute new content and rewrite entire sections of a document. Using the addendum editor, XMetaL Reviewer users with no knowledge of XML can contribute structured content, insert images, and create lists, tables, and whole sections for consideration as document modifications. In addition to harnessing the expertise of document reviewers, XMetaL Reviewer offers users a consolidated view of all their suggested changes which are displayed to all reviewers in real time, as the changes are being made. An audit trail tracks all document changes, and an inline chat feature lets reviewers discuss content changes in real time. XMetaL Reviewer 5.5 is available today with prices starting at $15,000 for the server and five concurrent user licenses. Additional concurrent licenses are $2,500 for five users. http://www.justsystems.com

JustSystems xfy Ready for IBM Retail Integration Framework

JustSystems announced that it has successfully completed testing of xfy (pronounced ‘x-fye’), its document-based composite application for the IBM Retail Integration Framework. xfy serves as a management interface, providing retailers optimal management and decision support through real-time views of data in underlying applications and repositories. xfy Helps IBM Deliver Real-Time Visualization of SOA IBM Retail Integration Framework utilizes open standards, including Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS), Open Application Group Integration (OAGIS) and Global Standards (GS1), to unlock communications between services, information sources, and business processes, making the store and the retail enterprise one seamless landscape rather than disconnected islands. xfy, among the first solutions to take advantage of IBM’s DB2 pureXML, unifies and processes data from multiple sources within a simple and intuitive document interface. The Retail Integration Framework initiative brings together platform- independent software vendors that deliver proven solutions designed and built for the retail industry. Through this initiative, IBM works with select IBM Business Partners to validate solutions that meet a rigorous assessment of next-generation, open-standards-based store environments. xfy provides an end-user interface that unifies and processes data from multiple sources into a clear, contextually-rich document interface. xfy connects directly to the native information sources that drive the retail environment, allowing the data processing to be done within the document itself and providing a real- time view of information. http://www.justsystems.com/

JustSystems Announces DITA Maturity Model Co-Authored with IBM

JustSystems, Inc. announced the availability of the “DITA Maturity Model,” which was co-authored with IBM and defines a graduated, step-by-step methodology for implementing Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA). One of DITA’s features is its support for incremental adoption. Users can start with DITA using a subset of its capabilities, and then add investment over time as their content strategy evolves and expands to cover more requirements and content areas. However, this continuum of adoption has also resulted in confusion, as communities at different stages of adoption claim radically different numbers for cost of migration and return on investment. The DITA Maturity Model addresses this confusion by dividing DITA adoption into six levels, each with its own required investment and associated return on investment. Users can assess their own capabilities and goals relative to the model and choose the initial adoption level appropriate for their needs and schedule. The six levels of DITA adoption include: Level 1: Topics – The most minimum DITA adoption requires the migration of the current XML content sources; Level 2: Scalable Reuse – The major activity at this level is to break down the content in topics that are stored as individual files and use DITA maps to collect and organize the content into reusable units for assembly into specific deliverables; Level 3: Specialization and Customization – Now, users expand the information architecture to be a full content model, which explicitly defines the different types of content required to meet different author and audience needs and specify how to meet these needs using structured, typed content; Level 4: Automation and Integration – Once content is specialized, users can leverage their investments in semantics with automation of key processes and begin tying content together even across different specializations or authoring disciplines; Level 5: Semantic Bandwidth – As DITA diversifies to occupy more roles within an organization, a cross-application, cross-silo solution that shares DITA as a common semantic currency lets groups use the toolset most appropriate for their content authoring and management needs; Level 6: Universal Semantic Ecosystem – As DITA provides for scalable semantic bandwidth across content silos and applications, a new kind of semantic ecosystem emerges: Semantics that can move with content across old boundaries, wrap unstructured content, and provide validated integration with semi-structured content and managed data sources. http://www.ibm.com, http://na.justsystems.com
