Tridion introduces Software Partner Framework Wednesday 28 March 2001 PDF Print New framework outlines strategy to team with premier complementary software vendors to deliver complete e-business solutions Tridion, a leading European provider of XML-based web content management software, today announced its new Software Partner Framework, a comprehensive program that enables its customers to easily combine Tridion's best-of-breed XML-based web content management software with an extended range of complementary e-business applications. Built on a non-proprietary and component-based architecture, Tridion DialogServer makes extensive use of open Internet standards, such as XML (Extensible Markup Language), COM+ and JAVA. These open standards allow Tridion DialogServer to be integrated seamlessly with a host of other enterprise software applications. By investing in the development of standard, out-of-the-box integrations, Tridion allows its customers to easily create, manage and deploy their business-critical content across a wide-range of e-business applications and platforms. "From the beginning, we made the decision to focus our product development efforts squarely on XML-based web content management," said Jouk Pleiter, president at Tridion. "We recognise that content management is just one crucial piece of any enterprise e-business software infrastructure, so we've made it a priority to integrate Tridion DialogServer with complementary e-business software market-leaders. Our strategy of providing standard, out-of-the-box integrations allows our customers to benefit from a faster implementation of their e-business strategy, and more importantly, from a faster time-to-market of their online business initiatives." Jeffrey Mann, vice president, International Electronic Business Strategies at META Group said, "Enterprise content management requires a variety of different solutions to meet the full gamut of requirements. Rather than trying to be all things to all people, Tridion is building an ecosystem of related solution providers, an approach which will appeal to many users."
