- The missing piece of the XML puzzle

Launching today is Barbadosoft’s CorteXML™, the world’s first solution for modelling complex XML-based applications. Pioneered by the company’s XML evangelists, CorteXML™ enables organisations to develop and maintain complex XML environments simply and quickly with minimal disruption.
Through CorteXML™, Barbadosoft has forged new ground and created the first software solution to allow users to view a conceptual model of their XML-based environments. This modelling system enables companies to respond rapidly to change with zero down time and reduced risk to their business.

Before CorteXML™, change meant interruption of service. The only way to amend complex XML-based environments was to make the change and await the resulting knock-on effects. Often the repercussions across the system were unpredictable and potentially catastrophic. In time-sensitive circumstances this approach meant the difference between success and failure.

Until today, organisations have had three ways of easing this situation:

· Software that patches problems in the short term, but cannot offer a long-term solution

· Costly consultants who can advise on technical issues which then require extra funds to implement and maintain

· Intensive and time consuming teams of developers working to identify the issues and get the system up and running, but only until the next time changes are made when they begin again

Thanks to Barbadosoft there is now an alternative.

CorteXML’s™ conceptual model approach allows users to analyse the potential impact of changes before they are made. It enables entire environments to evolve seamlessly with minimal risk and cost.

CorteXML™ is key for any enterprises needing to:

· Protect investments made in application infrastructure

· Future proof investments by providing them with the power to change

· Reduce time taken to deploy XML applications

CorteXML™ presents key benefits to financial services, content syndication, integrated B2B marketplaces and corporate publishing companies, ultimately revolutionising their information management systems. Benefits include:

· Minimised lead times

· Reduced time to market

· Realistic return on investment

· Lower maintenance costs (which can make up 65% of the costs of a system)
One company already evangelising the benefits of CorteXML™ is VNU Publitec. VNU Publitec is using Barbadosoft’s CorteXML™ system to allow mission critical publishing systems in their commercial telephone directory businesses to evolve in response to business requirements, without breaking existing infrastructure.

Commenting on the system, John Kilpatrick, VP of VNU World Directories and CIO of VNU Publitec said: “We selected Barbadosoft CorteXML™ to help manage the business rules associated with our complex corporate publishing solution. I have been very impressed with the solution and the people.”
John Ryan, product manager, Pre-Press Systems of VNU Publitec stated: “We expect to see time savings of 80% where the technology is applied, and a return on investment in four months. CorteXML™ ensures we can be responsive to the changing business needs of our customers and continue to deliver the quality of XML publishing services that they demand.”

Jim Gabriel, CEO and co-founder of Barbadosoft added: “Until CorteXML™ modelling XML environments was near impossible. They couldn’t be designed, developed or maintained like traditional software. Ongoing maintenance in real-time without the risk of unpredictable failure and down time was costly, time consuming and inefficient.

“CorteXML™ enables rapidly changing, growth-oriented businesses to adapt, integrate and maintain their XML environments on the fly. It’s the missing piece of the puzzle XML developers have been searching for.”

Note to News Editors:

XML (eXtensible Mark-up Language) is recognized as the de facto language of choice for B2B and B2C communication. XML has reached this elevation because it can be understood by multiple platforms and provides a common format for transporting and transforming data over the web, intranets and other networks.
