Quark Partners with IBM To Provide XML and DITA

Quark teamed with IBM Enterprise Content Management (ECM) to enable the broad adoption of XML across the enterprise by integrating Quark XML Author with IBM FileNet Content Manager. By eliminating barriers previously associated with the creation of DITA-based XML, Quark makes it possible for any IBM FileNet Content Manager user working in Microsoft Word to author intelligent content that can be reused and delivered to multiple channels or formats.

“In the past, XML authoring was designated for technical writers and IT personnel familiar with XML coding, or required business users to learn complex tools. Quark XML Author has changed the game entirely,” said Ken Bisconti, vice president of Products and Strategy, ECM. “By integrating Quark XML Author into IBM FileNet Content Manager we are helping enable customers to unlock the value of their business content to reduce costs, increase productivity, improve quality of service, and gain competitive advantage.”

The ability to author, manage, and reuse structured content enables business needs, such as managing intellectual property, complying with regulatory mandates and automating business processes.

A simple and streamlined process for XML authoring also allows organizations to enable enterprise-wide adoption of XML and DITA, capture and manage the knowledge of business users more effectively, and increase the return on content management investments.
