Bluestream Database Software Corp.—a provider of DITA-enabled Content Management System (CMS) solutions—is delighted to announce the release of XDocs 4.1. The XDocs CCMS version 4.1 offers an exciting new Knowledge Base with enhanced features for content delivery and a tight integration to the production environment.
Bluestream’s Nenad Furtula, VP Sales and Marketing, says, “Finding relevant, up-to-date information in sizable bites is fast becoming the de facto standard for search. Serving up a relevant topic vs. an entire publication, such as PDF, has far more appeal and value for the end-users and information seekers.”
“Combined with the exponential rise in mobile technology, namely smartphones and tablets, delivery platforms such as Bluestream’s Knowledge Base are fast becoming the norm for information delivery.”
The new Knowledge Base allows information seekers to search, browse, find, and share content faster and more efficiently. The content displays in responsive web design and the easy-to-configure administrative settings allow for the easy application of corporate branding.
The Knowledge Base lists many features for information seekers, such as:
- Modernized UI and content delivery model
- Multimedia display
- Ability to filter content by product
- Convenient filter for content by version
- Easy-to-navigate rendered DITA structures and links
- Easy-to-share relative content links with customers and colleagues
- Powerful search
- Interactive customer feedback
- Readily-available PDF downloads of content
- Support for multilingual content
Because it is tightly integrated with the content production environment, the Knowledge Base in XDocs 4.1 increases the speed of content delivery with an automated pull of approved content from the production server. The automated pull of content enables users to perform scheduled content updates. Additionally, in 4.1, the Knowledge Base blends seamlessly with the XDocs CMS content creation, reviewing, management, and localization management tools.
Bluestream’s flagship product is the XDocs Content Management System (CMS), a standards-compliant single-sourcing solution that enables technical communicators to create, manage, and store large volumes of both XML and non-XML content. XDocs enables organizations of all sizes to realize the benefits of DITA at a lower cost than the competition while providing a comparable or better quality system—thus offering unparalleled value.
Bluestream customers range from Fortune 100 organizations seeking complex cross-departmental DITA solutions to small businesses containing single author documentation teams.
Bluestream has been in business since 1997 and has customers in many verticals, among them software, oil and gas, health care, military, manufacturing, and finance.
