TechBooks Unveils Breakthrough XML Process for E-Publishing
Press release from the issuing company
FAIRFAX, Va., February 6, 2001 - TechBooks, a leading provider of print and Internet publishing services, recently unveiled XMLpublish, a new "front-end" XML (eXtensible Markup Language) workflow process that ensures the simultaneous production of high quality Internet and print deliverables.
Until recently, only "back-end" XML conversion was available to publishers which solved the problem of integrating with legacy technology, but a front-end solution was needed to provide a complete XML publishing infrastructure. Now, with XMLpublish, TechBooks is enjoying greater efficiency and flexibility that it can pass along to its customers, says Gurvinder Batra, executive vice president and chief technology officer of TechBooks.
XMLpublish makes content ready for a full range of publishing formats. It also integrates TechBooks' workflow components such as DTD development, parsing and electronic quality assurance through one process-oriented workflow.
"The explosive growth of the Internet has created new demand for information. Today an estimated 400 million people globally are online and there are more than four billion unique Web pages posted on the Internet," Gurvinder notes. "In addition to the Web, e-books, and personal digital devices (PDAs) are creating new products and distribution avenues for content."
