Catalysts for global technology partnership provided by new opportunities to integrate leading-edge publishing solutions
28 February 2014 DeltaXML, world experts in XML comparison systems, and Newbook Production Inc, specialists in standards-based content solutions that apply XML to technical publishing, announce an innovative partnership with DeltaXML’s Core and DITA products now added to the portfolio of solutions offered by Newbook.
Mississauga, Canada-based Newbook specialise in the provision of systems managing XML content in highly-regulated environments, e.g. healthcare and aerospace, where document formats are strictly controlled by mandatory/statutory regulations. The company is globally-recognised for its XML content management facilitating export to other formats such as RTF, used by Microsoft® Word.
DeltaXML’s extensive knowledge of high-integrity XML comparison systems, resulting from the development and introduction of its unique software, is demonstrated by its ability to achieve 100% track-ability, in ultra-sensitive technical document management and production, across different formats used within specialist publication workflows.
“Delivering commercial and operational solutions, whilst reducing potential risk to existing and future-planned XML workflows in a continuously expanding range of business-environments, provided the driving force for this new partnership”, added DeltaXML’s CEO Robin La Fontaine.
“With the management of these processes becoming increasingly complex, new methodologies to meet specific identified demands by customers for their publishing activities have become time and financially critical. Newbook’s expertise and innovative solutions across multiple formats, including proprietary design and print software, made them a strategic technology partner.”
Investigating routes to collaboration through synergistic applications have been the key drivers for DeltaXML and Newbook to develop this partnership. Both organizations actively promote assisting customers with applications of their specialized software solutions that make technical information more manageable, accurate, and accessible to all users.
“We draw from the best technology partners in the business or develop our own applications. Our authoring, content management and multimedia publishing products are carefully crafted to meet our customers’ requirements.” Anthony Villa, Newbook President, adds “When producing XML in a regulated but fast-paced environment, it is vital for our customers to be able to quickly and accurately pinpoint any changes between versions. The output can be generated from XML in any format, accompanied by a report that profiles changes from the previous submission. Put simply, companies that use DeltaXML get their updated information out to customers faster.”
“DeltaXML’s focus on developing solutions unique to each customer’s needs, and their commercial situation in technical publishing, aligns closely with Newbook’s similar position,” according to Nick Mongston, VP Sales and Marketing at DeltaXML.
“We’re excited that this partnership will extend the application of our ground-breaking XML solutions across the technical publishing community”, he continued.
“The integration of our world-leading comparison technology with Newbook’s publishing software, providing for example automated typesetting solutions, goes right to the heart of delivering cutting-edge applications to new customers in critical sectors, like aerospace and defense, pharmaceuticals and energy, and finance and banking”.
DeltaXML is the only company that focuses exclusively on comparison and change in XML data and documents.
As technical material continues to become increasingly complex, the use of XML, including DITA, for structured documents becomes essential.
Simultaneously, the problem of transforming this technical information into user-friendly manuals becomes much harder. Multiple updates and iterations are needed; with control and review of paramount importance in commercial and financial terms.
In this context, DeltaXML’s unique ability to compare structured documents with consistent accuracy delivers a key component in handling this complexity. The market-leading software provides the ability to produce results that are easy to understand, especially where changes are made to tabular data in XML.
DeltaXML’s software delivers critical benefits ensuring the ‘best use is made of experts’ time’ and enabling products to be brought ‘faster to market’.
