SDL Trisoft 2009 release addresses growing demand to use XML structured authoring and DITA for global markets and dynamic content delivery

SDL Maidenhead, United Kingdom
(30th April, 2009) - SDL Trisoft, a leader in Component Content Management (CCM) systems for technical publications, announced today the release of SDL Trisoft™ 2009. The new release features significant capabilities and enhanced integration with SDL Global Information Management (GIM) technologies, including translation management and global authoring.

SDL Trisoft 2009 responds to the needs of global companies to accelerate and tailor the delivery of technical information to the diverse segments of their customer base. Customers are increasingly requiring content that is customized specifically to their own interests and profiles, in their own languages and delivered over the web. These consumption requirements are putting pressure on global companies to seek easier and faster ways to write, rearrange technical information on-the-fly and dynamically publish targeted technical content to very specific audiences, adapted to those audiences’ languages and interests.

The new functionalities in SDL Trisoft 2009 specifically target these growing business drivers. SDL Trisoft’s extensive condition management capabilities have been recognized for some time by customers and analysts as a powerful differentiator. Condition management allows companies to manage thousands of variations and combinations in technical content that can be integrated dynamically to address different customer profiles.

“We are excited by the way SDL Trisoft continues to extend the platform to enhance business value for global companies,” said James Hom, Engineering Program Manager at NetApp. “The SDL Trisoft system is already a robust platform for component content management and the new release further extends those capabilities with an eye on the strategic importance of the web and dynamic content.”

“Our install base and new customers are moving to structured authoring and DITA to help with the dynamic delivery of content, tailored to audiences and markets,” said Frank Closset, Chief Technology Officer of SDL Trisoft. “The new release extends SDL Trisoft’s already powerful condition and versioning capabilities by exposing those capabilities via an API which enables integration to the web for dynamic content delivery.”

This latest version includes features such as:
. Enhanced authoring bridge connectivity to latest versions of JustSystems’ XMetaL, Adobe FrameMaker and PTC Arbortext
. New “Where used” reports in the SDL Trisoft Publication Manager and the Authoring Bridge
. New conditional filtering based on version numbers for software companies managing conditions based on versions
. Enhanced search capability and UI in Publication Manager
. Ability to dynamically filter and select conditions that are used in a publication
. New drag and drop functionality for managing content and folders in the Publication Manager
. Extended baselining component via a web services API to improve performance and provide a foundation for dynamic publishing
. Integration with other SDL product lines including SDL Translation Management System™ (SDL TMS™), SDL WorldServer™, and SDL Global Authoring Management System™ is further tightened to help improve the quality of content

“We are very pleased that SDL Trisoft continues to develop and expand its functionality to address the increasing needs of global organizations,” said Chris Hadley, User Information Manager at Micro Focus. "The extra features available in SDL Trisoft 2009 build on the existing capability to create an even more compelling solution to our needs.”
