Elcom boosts CommunityManager.NET integration


Elcom's CommunityManager.NET web content management system now integrates with Microsoft Office, SharePoint and HP TRIM.

Sydney-based Elcom has enhanced its CommunityManager.NET web content management system to integrate the management of multiple repositories and to allow the editing of stored documents with Microsoft Office.

CommunityManager.NET interoperates with Microsoft's widely used SharePoint and with HP TRIM, one of the most popular document management systems among government organisations.

"Today's businesses are faced with multiple content repositories across online and offline platforms and there is currently little integration between these platforms," said Elcom product director Anthony Milner.

"Businesses are refreshing web content offline and then republishing to the internet leading to a duplication of effort, especially given the sheer volume of data created by modern organisations," he explained.

Changes in version 7 help overcome this problem. The Microsoft Office connector allows users to access and edit web content from within Microsoft Office and save it directly back to a CommunityManager.NET site, or to edit Office documents within CommunityManager.NET.

There's more in version 7, so please read on.

The SharePoint connector allows SharePoint content to be pushed to a web site or automatically synchronised with CommunityManager.NET wherever the content is updated.

The HP TRIM connector simplifies the web publishing of content stored in HP's document management system. TRIM is attractive for its secure version control capabilities, but previously did not allow integrated web publishing.

"Integrating HP TRIM with CommunityManager.NET sites will make it easier for us to provide end users with access to the documents they need on a day to day basis," said Lyndal Hayward, information and publications manager at The Audit Office of New South Wales.

"There are three distinct benefits with this new feature. Firstly, data will reside within a user-friendly, CommunityManager.NET document library so that it can be accessed quickly without staff having to navigate a complex HP TRIM database. Secondly, by making TRIM data available online via hyperlinks, we will be able to streamline the publishing of web content.  Finally, we will be assured that the same version of a document resides both online and offline to comply with content management regulations," explained Hayward.

CommunityManager.NET version 7 also includes an email publishing module. Non-technical users can prepare content using templates, and then email the result to CommunityManager.NET, which publishes it to the web site.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
