IXIASOFT and Ektron, Inc. have announced a strategic partnership. Under this alliance, the companies will co-market and offer integration for IXIASOFT's TEXTML Server and Ektron eWebEditPro+XML. TEXTML Server is a XML content server designed for software developers who require advanced storing, indexing, and searching capabilities for their applications. Ektron eWebEditPro+XML is a WYSIWYG, browser-based XML editing tool designed primarily for non-technical professionals. These technologies bring together XML authoring, storage, and serving capabilities, which creates new opportunities for developing XML-centric applications. End-users work in a browser-based, word processor-like environment to create XML content. Content is stored in an XML database and made available for retrieval and publishing. As part of this technology partnership, IXIASOFT and Ektron will collaborate on and coordinate sales and marketing efforts. IXIASOFT and Ektron are both technology partners with Microsoft.
