Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) September 12, 2007

Flatirons Solutions, a leader in XML publishing and content management solutions, announced the launch of their Technical Publishing Solution for EMC Documentum®, an XML-based content management platform. Designed in conjunction with EMC Documentum the solution leverages the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) and DocBook standards, and seamlessly integrates with the Documentum Content Management System and leading XML authoring tools. Based on Flatirons Solutions' SourceOnceTM methodology and best practices for leveraging XML and content reuse, the solution offering includes a standardized project plan, standardized Content Architecture/Design document, and pre-built Documentum configurations and workflows for state-of-the-art DITA-based technical publishing. Whether just starting with DITA, or looking to enhance an existing DITA application, organizations can be operational within six weeks and realize immediate ROI in production costs, resources, and publishing cycles.

"Flatirons Solutions' extensive experience with Documentum has enabled us to provide world-class solutions involving content management, XML, collaboration and Documentum expertise," said Eric Severson, Chief Technology Officer of Flatirons Solutions. "The Technical Publishing Solution fills a gap in the marketplace for a comprehensive XML-based solution for publishers of technical content. By developing this XML solution specifically for the Documentum platform, our customers are able to reduce publication, content maintenance and review costs, and eliminate the need to design a costly, non-standard solution from scratch."

"Flatirons has been a significant player in the implementation of XML authoring/translation/publishing solutions for EMC organizations," said Paul Masalsky, Information Architect and Program Manager at EMC. "In addition to providing high quality professional services, Flatirons has gone beyond EMC's requirements and base expectations. As a long-standing client and partner, EMC looks forward to introducing the Technical Publishing Solution to our commercial and enterprise accounts with Flatirons."
