IXIASOFT joins JustSystems' Certified Solution Partner Program

IXIASOFT announces "Certified" partner status with JustSystems for DITA CMS product integration

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 26, 2007) - IXIASOFT, the market leader in XML database and content management solutions, announces their partnership with JustSystems, a leading global enterprise software company. IXIASOFT joins JustSystems' Partner Program as a Certified Solution Partner with regards to its DITA CMS Framework solution. JustSystems unveiled its 4-tier Partner Program in January of this year.

The DITA CMS Framework is a content management solution designed to support the entire DITA documentation process. The solution is aimed at organizations looking to increase their content reuse, improve content consistency, enhance team collaboration and lower translation costs. Developed using Eclipse as the UI, the CMS offers users two types of integrations with JustSystems' XMetaL authoring software: an integration with XMetaL XMAX and another with XMetaL Author Enterprise Edition. By offering these authoring options, IXIASOFT can truly leverage XMetaL's various authoring environments and is able to deliver solutions that exactly fit with customer requirements.

The CMS integration using XMAX (the embeddable version of XMetaL Author) provides users with a single interface with an advanced DITA customization. Users find this approach appealing since they can perform all tasks - from authoring and searching, to managing and publishing their content, all from within the same UI.

For users who prefer using the desktop version of XMetaL Author, IXIASOFT provides an integration using XMetaL Connector, the dedicated integration layer between XMetaL and content repository and management systems. This approach enables users to fully leverage the XMetaL native authoring interface and its extensive feature set.

"We highly recommend XMetaL authoring software to customers looking for a WYSIWG editor that is easy to use and fully supports DITA. Because of our CMS's flexibility, we are the only DITA CMS vendor capable of offering both types of integrations which both have their advantages." said Eric Bergeron, President of IXIASOFT. "Partnering with JustSystems solidifies our market position within the DITA CMS marketplace by ensuring the delivery of a unique solution that focuses on high quality technology and services."

"The JustSystems partner program reaffirms our commitment to work in partnership with leading vendors to provide complete content lifecycle solutions and services to customers," said Michelle De Hertogh, VP Business Development, JustSystems Inc. "As a Certified Solution Partner, IXIASOFT demonstrates the level of excellence we look for in our CMS partners, and extends its ability to enable its customers to leverage a complete, end-to-end content lifecycle solution across the enterprise."

Both IXIASOFT and JustSystems are exhibiting at the Content Management Strategies/DITA North America 2007 taking place this week in Boston.
