|Kinecta Corp., a provider of content-syndication and aggregation infrastructure
solutions, has announced the general availability of Kinecta Syndicator
Lite, a free content-distribution application. The company has also announced
a strategic arrangement with Open Market, Inc. (http://www.openmarket.com)
to develop solutions combining the Kinecta Interact syndication infrastructure
solution with the Open Market Content Server content-management solution.
Kinecta Syndicator Lite
Based on the company’s Kinecta Interact system, Kinecta Syndicator
Lite enables businesses to establish up to five open, dedicated channels
for automating content distribution, thus eliminating the reliance on manually
intensive and error-prone distribution methods, such as e-mail or FTP (file
transfer protocol), according to the announcement. It also avoids unscalable
and inflexible click-back methods, such as linking and framing.
"We are committed to providing solutions that meet or exceed our customers’
requirements for ongoing content distribution," said David Mathison, Kinecta’s
chairman and CEO. "Syndicator Lite enables businesses to quickly get started
building a distribution network and will prepare them for ongoing information
exchange and collaboration throughout their value chain."
Kinecta’s infrastructure solutions allow companies to establish multiple
points of presence instead of relying on single destination sites, intranets,
or extranets that force suppliers, partners, customers, or employees to
access their content. Like Kinecta Interact, Syndicator Lite manages delivery
of multiple content types, formats, content sources, and delivery frequencies.
It automates the distribution of content in a wide range of file formats, including XML, HTML, text, Adobe PDF,
graphics, audio, video, and streaming media. According to the company,
businesses that need access to more advanced functionality and support
for larger distribution networks can easily upgrade to the enterprise-class
Kinecta Interact platform.
Kinecta’s solutions allow companies to establish a wide range of automated
distribution processes, including the ongoing delivery of content—such
as financial data, manufacturing drawings, or product catalogs—to partners
or suppliers. Companies can also automate delivery of industry news to
partner sites to increase reach and extend brand recognition. Kinecta Syndicator
Lite is available immediately as a free download from http://www.kinecta.com.
Open Market Alliance
Open Market’s Content Server is a pure Java platform for the development
and operation of high-performance, large-scale content-management and delivery
applications. Both Open Market and Kinecta solutions are based on open
standards: Java and XML. Kinecta Interact complies with the Information
and Content Exchange (ICE) protocol, providing customers with an open-architected
solution for the syndication of content. The combined technologies will
be designed to allow companies to create, update, and manage Web content
by giving business users the ability to submit, edit, approve, and post
content as needed.
