Quark Works with EMC to Integrate Quark XML Author with EMC Documentum

New Integration Makes it Easy for Documentum Users to Create XML Content with Microsoft Word

DENVER - 7/1/2009 - Quark announced today its work with EMC to integrate Quark® XML Author with the EMC Documentum enterprise content management solution to bring easy XML authoring to anyone using Microsoft Word. The integration benefits organizations adopting XML in order to improve collaboration on content creation, enable content reuse, and comply with regulatory mandates such as the Federal Drug Administration’s Structured Product Labeling (SPL) standard.

“Organizations without an XML authoring solution are missing huge opportunities to create intelligent content that can lead to significant efficiency improvements in content driven applications,” said Jeroen Van Rotterdam, General Manager of XML Solutions in the Content Management and Archiving Division at EMC. “The seamless integration between Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word and Documentum provides customers a unique solution for creating and managing XML today based on Microsoft Word, the most desired end-user interface.”

Melissa Webster, Program Vice President of Content & Digital Media Technologies for IDC, said, “XML is a key enabler for dynamic enterprise publishing applications. The challenge is making it easy and seamless to leverage the power of XML and component-level content without forcing users to change tools. Quark XML Author turns Microsoft Word into an XML authoring tool, helping to remove an important barrier to mainstream adoption of XML. Integrating Quark XML Author with EMC Documentum gives users a way to author in XML, validate their XML content, manage links between XML documents, and access XML content via standards like XQuery and XPath.”

Quark XML Author allows Microsoft Word users to create intelligent and reusable XML content with little or no training. Now Documentum users can easily and securely manage, review, and edit XML content created with Quark XML Author directly from Microsoft Word. Documentum users can also take advantage of the XML improvements within the Documentum platform, including enhanced content searching with XML Store, multi-channel publishing with XML Transformation Services, and dynamic content delivery with Dynamic Delivery Services. The combined solution:

- Eases the adoption of XML: Anyone familiar with Microsoft Word can author XML content, which speeds deployment to enterprise user communities.

- Removes complexity: Out of the box integration with Documentum’s native XML features simplifies maintenance and system enhancements.

- Improves productivity: The Documentum process portal allows for collaborative authoring and reuse of critical content.

“We are pleased to partner with EMC, a leading provider of enterprise content management,” said John Friske, General Manager of XML technology for Quark. “We have a number of common customers in life sciences, financial services, manufacturing, and the public sector who will benefit from our end-to-end solution for collaborative content creation and easy content re-use.”

Quark and EMC will conduct a live demonstration of the Quark XML Author and EMC Documentum integration at the EMC Federal Government Forum on July 16, 2009 in Washington D. C. The forum will focus on enterprise content management challenges and solutions relevant to the United States federal government, including records management and compliance.

Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word
Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word is an XML authoring tool that allows users to easily create XML content in a familiar word processing environment. Quark XML Author enhances Microsoft Word’s native XML support by allowing users to create narrative XML documents directly — without seeing tags, being constrained to boxes, or being aware of the technical complexities associated with XML. Equally important, Quark XML Author ensures that the content an author creates is constantly validated against the XML standard — eliminating the need to rework content at a later time.
