Inso Announces DynaBase Version 3.1

Inso Announces Version 3.1 of DynaBase, the Leading XML-based Web Content Management and Dynamic Publishing Platform for the Enterprise

Doubles Performance for Personalization and Searching, Adds Support for Multiple Content Repositories, Includes New Java API, Enhanced Java Client, and XML Authoring Templates

BOSTON, MA. March 02, 1999.

At Seybold Seminars Boston Publishing 99 today, Inso Corporation announced availability of Version 3.1 of DynaBase, Inso's award-winning Web content management and publishing platform. DynaBase 3.1 delivers 100% performance improvements versus version 3.0 for content personalization and searching, while also adding new usability features and Java-based management capabilities that address the most demanding requirements of large-volume corporate and commercial publishers.

In addition to significant performance enhancements, DynaBase 3.1 adds support for managing and searching multiple content repositories. This new capability enables publishers to more easily separate content for distributed authoring teams, segregate news feeds and other special data, and efficiently assemble content for searching and publishing on the Web, intranets or extranets. Publishers can now effectively manage ten times more content using a confederation of databases.

DynaBase 3.1 includes a new Java API (application programmers interface) that provides full content management functionality (e.g., check-in/check-out, version control, etc.) and can be used to automate much of the Web publishing process. Full content management capabilities have also been added to Web Author, DynaBase's Java-based interface, providing Macintosh, Solaris and other Java users with access to all content management functions. The new version of DynaBase also includes a unique XML template system, along with sample templates, to make it possible for designers to create dynamic HTML pages without programming.

"Building on the strength of its initial releases, DynaBase continues to deliver an interactive content management environment readily attuned to the needs of conventional publishers," said Geoffrey E. Bock, Senior Consultant at Patricia Seybold Group. "Once they have decided to publish dynamic documents from a continually changing repository of information elements, publishers can use DynaBase to exploit the capabilities of XML for competitive advantage."

"A great deal of dialogue with our corporate and commercial publishing customers has resulted in significant performance improvements, and the addition of important new Java, XML and content management capabilities in DynaBase 3.1," said Graham Marshall, vice president and general manager of Inso's Information Publishing Solutions division. "With Version 3.1, DynaBase continues to satisfy the most rigorous Web content management and publishing requirements."

"DynaBase performance for server throughput has been quadrupled over the last six months," said Jon Bachman, Director of Marketing for DynaBase. "For example, DynaBase can now deliver 5 million personalized pages per day on a single processor Pentium II 400 PC or Solaris equivalent. This high-speed Web publishing platform also takes advantage of multiprocessor servers, or can be configured across multiple servers, to handle the volume of traffic on the world's largest Web sites."

Available immediately, DynaBase 3.1 plugs-in to Microsoft Internet Information Server running Windows NT 4.0 and Netscape Enterprise Servers running Windows NT 4.0 and Sun Solaris 2.6. Starting pricing for DynaBase content management software in an enterprise installation begins at $50,000. Call Inso at 800-733-5799 for specific pricing and configuration information.

For corporations who need to ensure their online capabilities are manageable, reliable, scalable and secure, DynaBase is an integrated content management and publishing platform that supports the next generation of Web applications. Unlike competitive content management systems which are rigid and costly to operate, DynaBase is a flexible, open platform that uses XML to support any type of content, authoring tool and workflow within mission- critical Web publishing environments.
