|Inmagic, Inc., a developer of knowledge management and special library
software, has announced that its customers can now catalog Web content
directly into its DB/TextWorks text-oriented database product. Knowledge
professionals now have the ability to use DB/TextWorks v5.1, Inmagic's database
product, in conjunction with Inmagic.NET, its Web content-integration technology
(found within DB/TextWorks), as a long-term solution to Web content management.
"Since December 2000, Inmagic.NET has been allowing information professionals
to speed acquisitions work flow by purchasing information directly from
the Web and then downloading catalog data directly into DB/TextWorks,"
said Gerry Brown, Inmagic.NET's vice president of business development.
"Now, with Web content cataloging, information professionals can catalog
key Web pages and map them into their DB/TextWorks database."
Web cataloging is accomplished directly from the Inmagic.NET menu item
found on the DB/TextWorks menu bar. By first opening an Inmagic textbase
(Inmagic's term for database) and then clicking on the Inmagic.NET menu
item, knowledge professionals can surf the Web, highlight text on a Web
page, and drop it into a field for the record referencing that page. "What
we've enabled is a way for knowledge managers to easily incorporate links
to outside information resources into the knowledge base," said Phil Green,
Inmagic's president and CEO. "Now knowledge managers have the ability to
make both external and internal knowledge resources searchable together."
