Stellant: Customers Can Manage Wikis, Blogs, And RSS Feeds

Collaborative content including blogs are now part of Stellant's content-management tool, allowing the same level of workflow, audit trail, and records and retention management as for traditional corporate content.
Also new to Stellent Universal Content Management are blog-formatted WYSIWYG forms, enabling authors to post new blog entries without using HTML. A preview function allows users to proof posts before publishing them. And, the Stellent system gives blog readers the ability to efficiently provide comments on posts to facilitate further discussions on a topic.

Users can write blog entries using e-mail or word processing applications such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice. Companies also can distribute blog posts through really simple syndication (RSS) feeds, allowing audiences to subscribe to specific content.

A security feature helps organizations control who can author and view a blog.

Stellent also unveiled new Universal Content Management capabilities for leveraging really simple syndication (RSS) within an enterprise content management framework.

"Users can browse the content and Web sites managed in Stellent Universal Content Management, conduct searches for content, and then subscribe to and receive individual content items or groups of content via an RSS feed," said Dan Ryan, Stellant executive vice president of marketing and business development.

New templates enable organizations to quickly deploy RSS feeds for intranet, extranet and public Web site content managed in the Stellent repository. The Stellent system automatically generates RSS feeds of managed content using metadata and rule sets.
