WoodWing and eZ Systems form partnership

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Zaandam – The Netherlands -- WoodWing, developer of cross-media content publishing solutions for newspapers, magazines, book publishers and corporate customers, today announced a technology partnership with eZ Systems, headquartered in Skien, Norway.

eZ Systems develops and markets eZ Publish, an Open Source Web Content Management System, chosen by thousands of enterprises and organizations worldwide to build their corporate websites, intranets, web shops and media portals. The system is based on open standards and stores content in generic XML, enabling customers to seamlessly deliver content across multiple platforms.

The integration of WoodWing's Enterprise Content Publishing Platform with eZ Publish is in the focus of the partnership and has already been developed. This integration consists of a WoodWing Enterprise server plugin plus an extension for eZ Publish. It is available at no charge to WoodWing and eZ partners, allowing them to easily and successfully implement cross-media publishing solutions for customers.

From the publisher's perspective, WoodWing's client application Content Station allows editors to plan, create, manage and to publish their content to any output channel with a single mouse-click. With this new integration, eZ Publish becomes one of these channels.

Aleksander Farstad, CEO of eZ Systems, appreciates the agreement: „By our partnership with WoodWing, eZ Publish becomes an important link in the chain of the modern, fully integrated publishing workflow. Today, publishers need to generate content independent of the channel they publish to – and now they can use eZ Publish to feed their websites from within the WoodWing environment."

Erik Schut, President of WoodWing Software, points out: „We are very pleased about the partnership with eZ Systems, which helps us to expand the range of Web Content Management Systems supported by our solutions, giving our customers the freedom of choice. Our solutions and the applications of eZ Systems will integrate seamlessly as the cornerstones of the technology behind the products are similar – open standards and XML."

Information about the integration of WoodWing's Enterprise Content Publishing Platform with eZ Publish will also be shared at the eZ Conference in Paris (France) on June 25th and 26th. The eZ Conference Blog allows to follow some of the most important discussions online at http://blog-ezconference.audaxis.com/. More information about the conference can be found at http://ez.no/company/ez_conference_awards.
Another opportunity to meet WoodWing and to see how WoodWing solutions cope with the challenges of the publishing future is the IFRA Expo 2009 taking place in Vienna (Austria) from October 12-15th, 2009. For more information please visit www.woodwing.com/en/Events.
