NetFederation Officially Starts NewsML Showcase
Cologne, Germany. 03-July-2001.
The German-based NetFederation Interactive Media GmbH has published a NewsML showcase today. The NetFederation showcase contains information on the XML flavour NewsML for business users and developers. The aim of this showcase is to become a portal for NewsML knowledge and a discussion forum for business usage. You can access this showcase directly via www.net-federation.de/newsml.
NetFederation is a leading company in NewsML technology in Germany. The company is currently developing a prototype NewsML-specification for the Corporate Communication department of the international pharmaceutical company Aventis (France). NetFederation's prototype for Aventis aims to standardize all of the company's internal and external communication flows. The project intends to facilitate the information exchange and workflow of all Aventis communicators and internal communication portals. Furthermore, the prototype can enable Aventis communicators to export company news directly to external news-databases (e.g. of news agencies, online health-care portals).
This project is called "ACM - Aventis Content Marketplace" and is one of the first prototypes worldwide to standardize information exchange between internal and external company communication systems by making use of XML technology standards.
