IDG's InfoWorld Goes Live with New Web Site, Content Managed by Percussion's Rhythmyx CMS

Feb 07, 2003

Percussion Software has announced that IDG's InfoWorld Media Group has gone live with a new version of its flagship Web site,, based on Percussion's Rhythmyx content management system. By separating content production from delivery, Rhythmyx' publishing architecture not only allows InfoWorld to quickly publish breaking news, but also offers their readers access to the content on the site without experiencing delays. InfoWorld provides in-depth news coverage and evaluation of technology products for Senior IT professionals. Using Rhythmyx to produce content, provides news and information more quickly and efficiently, in an effort to enable IT professionals to make fast and intelligent purchasing decisions. Rhythmyx has an engine-based architecture that enables implementers to use graphical interfaces for content production, without relying on coding. Once the content is finalized, Rhythmyx uses its Publishing Services capabilities to publish formatted or unformatted content to any external relational database, regardless of schema, without requiring any coding. In addition, Rhythmyx is a standards-based content management system, relying on industry standards such as Java, XML, XSL, SOAP, HTML, and JavaScript to provide system extensibility. Rhythmyx will be used by 35 to 40 content contributors to the site.  InfoWorld will also use the Active Assembly feature that allows InfoWorld editors to adjust content layout graphically without requiring any programming.
