Day Unveils Communique 4 Delivering Most Open and Standardized Content Management Solution on Market.
Day Software (SWX:DAYN)(OTC:DYIHY), a leading provider of global content management and content infrastructure software, today announced the availability of Communique 4, the first native JCR (JSR 170) standard compliant enterprise content management solution available on the market today. Communique 4 revolutionizes content management by decoupling the content management application from the underlying repository.
Applications developed that leverage the industry standard API can run on any JSR 170 compliant repository, which represents a revolutionary shift in the content management industry. Previously, companies found their content locked away in proprietary legacy repositories. This new standard, of which Day spearheaded within the industry, is focused on the customer by allowing them to access and use their most valuable information, no matter where it resides. Communique 4 ships with and runs natively on Day's innovative java content repository, Content Repository Extreme (CRX).
"Communique 4 truly brings customers to the next evolutionary stage of content management - giving them a standardized content infrastructure and unlocking their proprietary legacy repositories," said David Nuescheler, chief technology officer, Day Software. "Companies will now have greater flexibility with Communique 4, allowing them to choose the best-of-breed products that fit their needs."
Standard Content Repository
The JCR (JSR 170) standard, initiated and lead by Day, now makes it possible to develop applications using this standard API. These applications can run on any JSR 170 compliant repository, which completely eliminates the risk of "vendor lock-in." Communique 4 is the first Enterprise Content Management to comply with the new JCR standard and ships with Day's CRX, a content repository which fully implements the standard.
The Communique 4 framework offers a reusable component framework that solves multiple customer challenges with one (end-to-end) integrated solution. By delivering integrated enterprise content management applications, java content repository, and connection services, all from a single vendor, Day's customers can easily and rapidly deploy enterprise applications on the Web. In addition, customers can choose best-of-breed components, allowing them greater flexibility.
Communique 4 is a natural continuation of prior Communique releases, and provides an easy transition from older releases to Communique 4. Existing Communique projects can be migrated "in place" with help of an update installer, leaving the existing deployments and architecture intact. New projects can readily use the standardized API and can fully benefit from the new technology.
