On the product side, Fatwire's Content Integration Platform promises to add some compelling new functionality to its core Content Server product. The idea behind Content Integration Platform is that it can draw digital assets -- documents, images, audio and video files -- from multiple locations to be used in a site powered by Content Server. The platform uses a Web-services-based peer-to-peer content integration model for accessing resources from Unix, Windows, and EMC Documentum repositories.
In addition to making it easier to find and use digital assets stored across multiple locations, the Content Integration Platform also helps ensure that the appropriate security and retention policies are followed. It has strong support for version control, rights management, auditing, and workflows, as would be expected of any solution of this caliber.
As Fatwire continues to drive functionality and innovation, it's no surprise what 2007 was the best year yet in its 12-year history. From a product standpoint so far, 2008 is looking bright as well.
