The way businesses are managing their information is changing. They need to create, share and publish huge amounts of complex content to multiple channels and in many languages.
Content management systems have long helped businesses organize and produce product documentation and/or training materials for their customers. But today, modern technology standards – such as DITA to RDF to XProc – can offer more efficient ways of working that deliver real results for businesses – if the right tools are available to maximize their potential.
Componize is an enterprise content management software of a new kind: we bring the power of these new technologies together with well-designed component content management features that make them simple and easy to use. The results for our customers: faster, better, more up-to-date content that people like to use.
We anticipated the market demand for enterprise technologies based on open, innovative standards. It allowed us to quickly establish ourselves as a world-class brand in this sector. Some of our earliest and most notable clients include SAP, AMD, NXP Semiconductors and Alfresco Software, among others.
In 2008, Jean-Luc Borie and Frank Shipley, two veterans of enterprise information systems, founded Componize Software with a key insight into the future of content management and document management, in particular. They noticed that managers were increasingly frustrated with the limitations of their current CMSes with regard to the changing demands of their customers and end-users. Users seek content that is modular and adaptable to various formats. People work with chunks of information in online help, not lengthy manuals. People seek learning content in digestible segments, not always full-length courses. Jean-Luc and Frank knew that emerging XML-based technologies, if leveraged the right way, could be the answer: if information is unchained from documents it could be more easily reused and published across channels and in various formats.
They designed Componize. Componize’s first versions were built for new and emerging technology architectures such as DITA.
Within three years of Componize’s first product launch, the wave of DITA adoption in enterprises had grown dramatically. The team was well positioned to answer the call, with one of the easiest and most effective DITA CMS solutions on the market. In fact, Componize is the only DITA CMS specifically designed for new technology architectures like DITA. Componize quickly secured early marquee clients including AMD, NXP and SAP, among others. They’re integrating Componize into their existing CMS programs or launching entirely new programs in order to maximize the benefits of Componize’s DITA CMS.
