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.
"When we started with a 3,000 page backlog, we realized we
needed to empower each department to independently manage and author
content on the central IT Intranet infrastructure", says Walter
Gasparini, Director of Information Systems for the Regional
Municipality of Waterloo. "With LivePage we were successful beyond
expectations because the departmental content authors were productive
very quickly, and the system quickly integrated with our existing
Oracle server and web infrastructure."
"We're setting out to empower every content originator in
the enterprise with painless, direct, publishing capability. Our goal
is to lower the costs associated with publishing large content bases
such as web sites and documents," said Dave Boswell, president and

enables a new class of business solutions."
