Simply XML Announces Release 4.0 of Content Mapper, Microsoft™ Office to XML Authoring and Publishing Environment Including SharePoint Support

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2010) - Simply XML, LLC has released Version 4.0 of Content Mapper, an easy to use authoring environment for generating valid XML from Microsoft Word™ and Microsoft Office 2007. With Version 4.0, Simply XML has extended its Content Management System support to Microsoft SharePoint. Content Mapper's updated architecture takes advantage of the latest Microsoft development tools and improves simplicity, functionality, reliability, and performance. Content Mapper encourages both casual authors and more sophisticated technical writers to structure content driven by industry standard XML structures like DITA, DocBook and Information Mapping. Content Mapper promotes the cost-efficient implementation of single source publishing, information reuse, document control, custom publishing, and standards-based authoring without the need to add a large technical layer of staff or hard to use XML editors across the enterprise.

Content Mapper V 4.0 also features:

--  an easy to use publishing wizard to create beautiful documents on the
    fly through standard or custom style sheets
--  efficient search at any level of the content hierarchy through directly
    controlled metadata or metadata standards adopted by the enterprise and
    available in the content management system
--  support for simple or comprehensive work flow from SharePoint or other
    CMS systems
--  efficient direct or batch import of structured legacy documents
--  a customization environment that supports simple, comprehensive,
    or custom document standards

Doug Gorman, Simply XML's CEO, says that, "By aggressively pricing Content Mapper at only $300 per seat, including the integration with Microsoft SharePoint, Simply XML is revolutionizing the pricing structure and value proposition in this industry segment."

Content Mapper V 4.0 runs with Microsoft Office 2007 and runs under Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

Content Mapper allows anyone using Microsoft Word to create, find, reuse, tag, store, manage, edit, and publish XML content.
