Tridion, a leading European provider of XML-based web content management software, announced today at CeBIT that it will next week begin shipping an updated version of its core product, Tridion DialogServer 4.2. With version 4.2, Tridion DialogServer provides: · Tridion Business Connector, a new and generic solution which allows companies to easily exchange XML content between Tridion DialogServer and their existing back-office applications; · Extended BluePrint Management functionality, which helps companies to manage a constellation of websites in multiple languages; · Improved Workflow and Versioning capabilities, allowing companies to define and manage business processes, as well as gain control over version management and modification history of all content; · A new Presentation System architecture based on JAVA technology with extended support for market-leading application servers, web servers and operating systems. Tridion Business Connector The Tridion Business Connector allows companies to easily exchange content between Tridion DialogServer and their existing applications. Built on top of open industry standards like XML, XSLT, SOAP and BIZTALK, Tridion DialogServer synchronises with an impressive range of third-party applications. This seamless integration with existing back-office systems allows Tridion DialogServer to manage the total life-cycle of business-critical content and provide full control over the delivery of this content to the web. BluePrint Management Version 4.2 includes enhancements in DialogServer's BluePrint Management functionality that enable companies to achieve global brand consistency across a constellation of websites in multiple languages. BluePrint Management allows customers to set-up a centrally managed blueprint that regional teams can use to develop and localise their country website. This optimal task-division, between central and local teams, allows local authors to use central content, layout and functions, but also gives them the ability to customise these items when they need to be translated into local languages and modified with local nuance. Workflow and Versioning Tridion DialogServer 4.2 delivers several enhancements in the areas of workflow management and version control. With this latest version, companies can easily define and manage business workflow processes to ensure the necessary approval, quality checks and integrity procedures are carried out before content is published to the web. Manual tasks can be assigned to users or groups, and automated tasks can be performed by external programs and scripts. The DialogServer graphical user interface is extended to allow users to view and act upon their task lists as well as allowing managers to monitor task status or history. Tridion DialogServer 4.2 also provides improved version control and rollback functionality by maintaining complete version histories of all content and templates as they are developed and updated. DialogServer's rollback functionality allows for instant recovery of any earlier version of content. Multi-platform Support Tridion DialogServer 4.2 also features a new, multi-platform Presentation System architecture. Based on JAVA, DialogServer's presentation system seamlessly integrates with market-leading application servers such as BEA WebLogic and IBM Websphere, runs on leading web servers from Microsoft, iPlanet and Apache, and operating systems from Microsoft, Sun Solaris and Linux.
