LivePage Corporation Announces LivePage Enterprise 2.0

XML Support Highlights New Release of
Content Base Management System

New York, NEW YORK, October 7, 1998 - LivePage Corporation today announced Version 2.0 of LivePage Enterprise, its flagship content-base management system. Support for XML enables this new version to store, search, and manage XML and HTML content using an industry standard SQL database, and publish the content "live" from the database using standard web infrastructure.

LivePage Enterprise 2.0 enables a broad new class of content authors to do web publishing directly, quickly, and at low cost. LivePage Enterprise 2.0 also delivers advancements designed to lower the cost of deployment for large web sites including easy-to-use collaborative, multi-user content management, together with compatibility and standards support enabling integration with existing systems.

Our goal is to lower the costs associated with publishing large content bases such as web sites and documents," said Dave Boswell, president and CEO of LivePage Corporation.
