DENVER, CO – Quark Software announced today that ISACA, the international association of business technology professionals, selected Quark for content automation. ISACA is a global non-profit association with more than 138,000 members in 188 countries that serves as the voice of professionals in information systems audit, IT governance, risk management and cybersecurity.
To support its global community, ISACA produces a range of content that is critical to the success of its association members, such as journals, white papers, survey reports, newsletters, and ebooks. Like many large organizations, ISACA found that traditional content creation and management tools cannot support today’s content requirements, especially with growing demands for multi-channel content.
ISACA’s leaders in content development and management set out to identify a content platform that would allow the team to:
- Maintain a single source of content – a “version of record” – for each digital asset and content object, including version history and translations
- Create structured content components in XML, including rich metadata, so content can be easily searched and stored in a central repository
- Offer both internal and external subject matter experts a simple, Word-like authoring tool that allows for the creation of structured content
- Support multichannel publishing whereby a single source of content can be used to produce content that is optimized for various delivery channels including print, online, mobile and eBook
- Repurpose and recombine existing content to create new content products
- Provide for the ability to view analytical statistics of content
After evaluating a number of solutions based on this criteria, ISACA chose Quark Enterprise Solutions for content automation. Quark’s content automation platform removes the manual, error-prone processes from the content lifecycle to allow organizations to deliver the right content to the right audience at the right time.
“In addition to meeting our most important solution criteria, we chose Quark based on the team’s holistic approach to the entire content lifecycle, the simple user interface that the platform offers internal and external authors and reviewers, and the company’s focus on customer service,” said Jen Hajigeorgiou, Director of Content Management and Development at ISACA.
