New Mexico Newspaper Invests in Complete net-linx Publishing Solutions

Press release from the issuing company

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO -- March 20, 2001 -- The Santa Fe New Mexican is the first US newspaper to purchase an Insiight Editorial System from net-linx Publishing Solutions. This 67-seat System will replace The Santa Fe's CTEXT DOS-based system and DOS-based applications. Due to the older system's technology, the support and upgrade ability were nearing the end of their life cycle. Insiight, originally developed by Sii, is an architecture that allows a single interface to access multiple applications and systems, fulfilling the need for corporate-wide integration of commercial applications and database platforms. Insiight is "n-tiered" and founded on CORBA, Java, Oracle, XML, and commercial off-the-shelf applications. Its architecture -- the Universal NewsGram Architecture (UNA) -- breaks new ground for the publishing industry by introducing a framework known as Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). This framework offers newspaper publishers the freedom to chose functional components best suited to their operations. These functional components are "connected" to the framework using CORBA Connectors, creating a unified publishing environment. The Santa Fe New Mexican has chosen QuarkXPress for pagination and QuarkCopyDesk for editing and copy fitting and will be a complete pagination system for News content.
