Pironet NDH presents the new version of its Enterprise Content Management solution

Pironet NDH Opens Up pirobase CMS to Microsoft SharePoint

(PresseBox) (Cologne, Germany, ) Today's Pironet NDH User Day saw the company present a new version of its Enterprise Content Management solution, pirobase CMS 7.1. This new version offers improved editorial options, simplified layout and website administration and extended functions for document management. One of the most significant new features is the integration of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS).

Amongst other things, the extended document-management functionality makes possible the straightforward definition of meta-data for documents and document formats via the pirobase user interfaces. The automatic integration of these meta-data into the content management system makes them extremely easy to use. Authors can, for example, use meta-data to search for specific documents such as data-sheets or price-lists, ensuring that the different content required for various business processes is available via the selected communication channel.

In order to render pirobase CMS even easier to use for authors, Pironet NDH has made improvements to the "Smart Editor" editing tool and the "Smart View" presentation system. Templates can now be customized even more flexibly, while expanded search functions and the direct comparison of versions reduce the workload involved in maintaining pages to a bare minimum. Administrators also benefit from improved usability in pirobase CMS 7.1: Amongst other things, they can now carry out underlying configuration-work directly in the pirobase GUIs, with no need for programming.

The integration of pirobase CMS with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server makes it possible to extract jointly-used documents from SharePoint via the easy-to-use pirobase GUIs and incorporate them easily into other information channels - portals, for example. The direct access to MOSS prevents the redundant storage of data. The benefits of the pirobase CMS ECM solution - including community-capability, high scalability and ease-of-use - are thus combined with the collaborative strengths of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Companies that already employ MOSS, or are planning to do so, can integrate pirobase CMS into a holistic ECM strategy.

"When it comes to cross-location collaboration, it is becoming more and more important to provide the content required for each different business process in the appropriate form", comments Oliver Gürtler, ISV Software Partner Manager at Microsoft Deutschland GmbH. "The established partnership between Pironet NDH and Microsoft is one we value highly. Customers are on the look-out for partner companies that can close the gap between their business requirements and the technology available - and with pirobase CMS 7.1, Pironet NDH - a Gold-Certified Microsoft Partner - now offers an enhancement to the SharePoint Server that increases its value to customers."

"In our position as experts in content integration, the seamless integration of every form of data that is required for the various processes and management decisions within a company is at the heart of our ongoing strategy", says Jörg Krähschütz, Director of Software Solutions at Pironet NDH. "The integration of Microsoft Office SharePoint is therefore a logical step for us. pirobase CMS thus combines the advantages of the solutions from vendors such as SAP and Microsoft that are already in place within a given company with the benefits of an efficient Enterprise Content Management system - without any need for significant investment.
