Tridion Launches Public Sector Taskforce

Mar 14, 2003

Tridion has launched a 'public sector taskforce in an effort to help government bodies cope with the boom in demand for content rich, transactional Web sites. The Enterprise Content Management company has already seen a tenfold increase in requests for ECM solutions from government organizations over the past 12 months. To cope with this demand and address future customer requirements, Tridion has created a team to help organizations make their Web sites more interactive. The taskforce will deliver help-desk support through its public sector hotline and will offer specialist consultancy advice. It will also help public sector bodies ensure they conform to standards such as the eGovernment Interoperability Framework (eGIF), the eGovernment Metadata Standard (eGMS), the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), and the Freedom of Information Act, amongst others. The team has also developed a public sector information gateway that includes technical documents, online demos, and customer references relevant to local and central government, charities, and non-profit and educational organizations. Together, the hotline and gateway aim to provide comprehensive answers to any question regarding online delivery. Tridion is headquartered in Amsterdam and has offices in all European countries and the US.
