Why XML content management?

Why not simply continue to deliver documents in the same way? Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you can achieve a reduction in costs and increase in quality with an Ovitas CMS Content Lifecycle Solution.

  • Are there many pieces of content that are substantially re-used in multiple documents?
  • Does information have to be delivered electronically as well as in print?
  • Should I deliver custom iinformation to my consumers, who vary in terms of skill level?

Ovitas and its customers are engaged in re-architecting information development environments. They are using XML to define content components that can be re-used across multiple deliverables.
