Stellent Announces Integration between Stellent Content Management and Corel XMetaL
Product integration expands Stellent’s existing XML capabilities to meet user requirements to author content in XML while utilizing Stellent’s Universal Content Management architecture
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.OTTAWA Nov, 12. Stellent a global provider of content management solutions, and Corel Corp., a leading XML technology company, today announced an integration between the Stellent® Content Management system and the award-winning XML authoring platform, Corel® XMetaL®. The product integration expands Stellent’s existing strong XML functionality to meet increasing customer demand for the ability to create content using XML authoring tools and store it directly in a content management system.
«Stellent has a long history of providing robust XML functionality — including the ability to automatically convert native formats to XML — to our customers,» said Dan Ryan, executive vice president of marketing and business development for Stellent. «The benefits of XML — including content reuse, increased author efficiency and reduced publishing/maintenance costs — have driven many users to adopt XML authoring tools for their content creation processes. In fact, according to ZapThink, the market for XML content lifecycle solutions is expected to grow from $1.8 billion in 2003 to more than $11.6 billion by 2008. Our integration with Corel XMetaL is yet another step along our XML roadmap, helping us meet existing and future customer demand for this functionality. This integration further extends Stellent’s commitment to allowing users to work in common desktop applications and enables them to continue their normal work patterns unchanged.»
Together, Corel XMetaL and Stellent enable users to easily create, update, store and manage a variety of XML content for a number of purposes including Web content, technical publications, and product and manufacturing documentation. Users have access to all Stellent Universal Content Management functionalities, including content conversion, library services, categorization, workflow, Web publishing, content collaboration, content distribution and enterprise search. In addition, the integration allows users to search for and open XML content stored in the Stellent system directly from the Corel XMetaL interface.
«We are pleased to work with Stellent to serve this growing market with a new integrated solution for XML creation, management and publishing. Stellent’s unique approach to bursting documents into XML fragments brings a significant offering to the market that will impact enterprise customers in an important way,» said Bruce Sharpe, vice president of XML content solutions for Corel. «There are many synergies between our applications — including both tools’ strict adherence to standards — which ensure that this integration will provide a cohesive and powerful offering to our customers.»
Key Features and Benefits
The Stellent Content Management/Corel XMetaL integration will provide the following key features and benefits to Stellent customers:
User-friendly contribution interface — The WebDAV integration allows users to manage content in Stellent Content Server for use in Corel XMetaL.
Efficient content reuse — The XML fragment bursting capability enables users to break a single document into smaller XML fragments to enable efficient content reuse across multiple documents. All XML fragments are managed objects in the Stellent Content Management system.
Streamlined content updates — A parent-child relationship is maintained between XML components allowing users to update a fragment once and have the update reflected in all parent files where the fragment appears.
Impact analysis — An impact analysis identifies where a given fragment is used and what content or master files will be affected by a particular fragment change.
Customizable integrations — By leveraging the extensibility of Corel XMetaL, custom actions can be applied during drag and drop operations from the Stellent repository to the XML document.
Consistent content creation — The integration provides support for the structured authoring environment (using DTDs or schemas) managed by Corel XMetaL.
