Tridion has launched a range of products, including a new version of its enterprise content management system, in an effort to help businesses simplify content management. New features to Tridion's enterprise content management solution, Tridion R5 version 5.1, include the creation of "Virtual Folders" which allow users to save and store the results of their searches in personalized compartments. The solution's document management capabilities have also been enhanced. All document types can now be stored in a single, central source, allowing content to be repurposed for use in Intranets, extranets, and Web sites. In addition, users can now search within unstructured (such as presentations and PDF files) as well as structured content. Upgrades to security and platform compatibility (R5 v5.1 now supports Oracle 9i) have also been made.
Tridion is also launching two new products modules. Tridion Content Porter is designed to allow organizations to extract and re-purpose content residing in legacy systems, thus deriving more value from content by redeploying it on Web sites or intranets. Tridion Word Connector 3.0 allows end-users to work directly in Word, rather than using the interface of the content management system. Documents are saved as XML components, enabling them to be plugged directly back into the content management system without the editor requiring any technical knowledge.
