FileNET Introduces Panagon Web Publisher 4.0

Article excerpt

FileNET Corp. has announced its new Panagon Web Publisher 4.0 software, which provides new XML language and incremental publishing capabilities for enhanced content management support of Web-based information portals. This is one of the first components of an upcoming set of e-content management announcements slated for early this year.

Panagon Web Publisher 4.0 (PWP 4.0) is a template-driven software engine designed to automate the conversion of native application-authored documents into stylish, consistent Web publications.

"It allows users to select and order a group of documents as a publication and to develop relationships among those documents. It provides navigation from within and among documents with automatically generated hyperlinks, next page and previous page buttons, indexes, tables of contents, lists of figures, table lists, reference documents, and presentation graphics, which gives the publication a real Web appeal."

Harris said: 'The Panagon solution, along with the publication template approach, provides a favorable return on investment over manual Web publishing methods. The cost to create templates for a typical Web publication is about 10 percent of the cost to hard code the same volume of documents--but the real cost savings with Panagon are realized every time a document is updated because the re-publishing of the new version is handled automatically, without Web staff intervention. …
