Amherst, N.H., – (via THE
HOSTING NEWS) – July 26, 2005 – In a move that increases flexibility of
content management-driven Web sites, Ektron announces that CMS400.NET now supports
ColdFusion, JSP, PHP and ASP as well as ASP.NET sites.
Ektron’s new multiplatform support allows Web developers to continue using programming
languages they are skilled in, while leveraging the most up-to-date functionality
of CMS400.NET, including core CMS functionality and numerous advanced features.
Additionally, developers can rapidly and seamlessly integrate Ektron’s solution
into an existing ColdFusion, ASP, JSP
or PHP site with little or no change to existing code.
According to Ektron CEO Bill Rogers, ”Ektron CMS400.NET represents next-generation
content management. With multiplatform support, Ektron enhances the developer’s
experience by giving developers the option to use languages they are most comfortable
with, while ensuring delivery of a robust site in little time, for little cost
— with content management functionality ranging from basic to advanced.”
Rogers says organizations have repeatedly asked Ektron about tapping the power
of CMS400.NET, without abandoning existing sites and without relinquishing opportunity
to develop in languages beyond .NET.
”If an organization deploys on a Windows platform, Ektron CMS400.NET is the
best content management solution for their site,” Rogers states. ”Now, developers
who’ve coded sites in ColdFusion, JSP, PHP or ASP can reuse code they’ve spent
hundreds or thousands of hours developing. They can continue coding in these
languages and, if they choose, learn .NET at their own pace.”
Ektron’s adoption of Microsoft .NET technology ensures CMS400.NET is highly
scalable and adaptable for future advancements in internet technologies. Ektron
allows organizations to improve connectivity between internet, intranet and
portal sites, even if they are built in different environments.
Ektron CMS400.NET delivers an intuitive infrastructure to easily create, manage,
publish and reuse Web content, Microsoft Office documents and other assets,
while Webmasters and site administrators retain site control. It also provides
a rich application development environment.
Ektron excels at providing core Web content management functionality including
WYSIWYG editing, workflow/approval, versioning/history/audit trails, metadata
support, task management, and more. CMS400.NET’s out-of-the-box advanced features
include integrated document management, an online forms engine, calendar module,
XML indexing for advanced search, content translation/localization, RSS support,
and a new Explorer-like interface. With an open API, developers can readily
customize the Ektron system.
Ektron was founded in 1998, and the company has nearly 15,000 customer integrations
worldwide, including Unilever, Intel and
