Web operations teams are under increasing pressure to gain control of their published content on the web and to maximize the usage and value from that content
Boston, US and London, UK (Vocus) June 15, 2010
Vamosa, a provider of software and solutions for Enterprise Content Governance (ECoG), today announced the beta release of WebWorks, a software tool dedicated to helping web operations teams deliver value for the business, including transforming the web experience of customers. This announcement shows the company’s commitment to providing easily configured point solutions for key stakeholders as part of the rollout of its ECoG suite. This follows the recently announced partnership with MetaVis, to distribute a suite of tools designed for SharePoint Administrators.
WebWorks, the new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) collaborative portal for managing web projects, serves as the central hub for web teams to gain control of their content. WebWorks takes the complexity out of optimizing web sites and managing associated projects, by automatically identifying important accessibility, compliance, SEO and brand challenges and providing the web team with a collaborative portal to resolve them.
“Web operations teams are under increasing pressure to gain control of their published content on the web and to maximize the usage and value from that content,” said Ian Smith, CEO, Vamosa. “Utility software that adds value right out of the box is the key to addressing these needs. WebWorks identifies problem areas automatically and presents them to the web team via a collaborative portal so that they can address them quickly. Specifically, we see five clear results for clients; optimized web sites, the ability to prioritize web projects, a transformed customer experience and a snapshot of what is being published on the web with a comprehensive audit trail. The unique dashboard will provide relevant intelligence to calculate ROI.”
Vamosa has recently announced the distribution and support of MetaVis Architect Suite in Europe. The partnership supports Vamosa’s strategy to provide comprehensive solutions for governing and migrating to SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010. The Architect Suite includes metadata and migration software to help design efficient taxonomy structures, easily move and classify content in SharePoint for improved site documentation and navigation.
Mark Gilbert, Research Vice President at Gartner said, “In the paper-based world, a filing cabinet would sit in every corner of every office and would contain the single vision of the truth. A process would exist around the file structures ensuring the right versions were used. However, in the digital world, we’ve become careless and store things in our personal taxonomies whether that’s in local folders or just emails. The end result is that multiple copies exist and we’ve lost the notion of how a team should organize content. Clearly this all negatively impacts business process and content. If an enterprise has inadequate content in one ECMS, then moving it to another will not really help the business. Content Governance is essential to the success of the digital world.”
Smith continued, “Bringing order to the chaos of digital content through a comprehensive strategy for Enterprise Content Governance (ECoG) is the driver behind the expansion of our SharePoint practice with the deployment of the MetaVis Suite. These award winning tools help SharePoint Administrators with the daily task of organizing SharePoint environments for improved search, findability and e-discovery.”
WebWorks will be generally available from July 2010. The MetaVis Architecture Suite is available now. Visit http://www.vamosa.com for more information.
