Open Text reports it has extended extending Livelink to offer integrated Web content management, tying it into Livelink's knowledge management and collaborative capabilities.
Content Management for Livelink will be fully integrated with Livelink's collaboration tools, enabling workflows to be used for content approval processes and providing access to real-time collaboration with Livelink MeetingZone for virtual meetings to review and approve content. Because of its ease of use, Open Text claims Content Management for Livelink will be the first offering that puts affordable content management into the hands of the non-technical business user.
Content Management for Livelink includes:
- content authoring and creation,
- multilingual site creation and management,
- content approval and staging,
- content distribution and syndication, and
- content delivery and personalization.
Further, says the company, Content Management for Livelink will let teams of contributors work together to deliver content over the Web. Authorized users with no previous knowledge of Web publishing will be able to create sites, add content using familiar authoring tools, such as Microsoft Word and Dreamweaver, and submit content for approval and review. The software also takes advantage of Livelink's metadata and search capabilities, so customers can avoid buying third-party solutions in order to offer comprehensive search capabilities on their sites. The offering also provides out-of-the-box integration with such application servers and personalization engines as BEA's Weblogic and IBM's Websphere.
