San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
Astoria Software, a division of TransPerfect, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Stilo International plc to incorporate Stilo’s cloud content conversion service, Migrate, into the Astoria Component Content Management solution. The agreement establishes a one-stop business relationship between Astoria Software and customers of the Astoria Component Content Management solution, and the partnership unites two companies whose products are leaders in the technical communications market. Astoria Software and Stilo International will showcase Migrate and Astoria at the Center for Information Development Management’s Content Management Strategies/DITA North America Conference April 15-17, 2013, in Providence, Rhode Island.
Two Clouds Make Thunder
The combination of Astoria and Migrate joins together the world’s first SaaS solution for Enterprise-wide XML Component Content Management with the world’s only real-time cloud solution for content conversion to XML. With these two services, Astoria Software brings the benefits of cloud XML content creation and management to a new audience of users: those who have previously built technical material with unstructured tools.
“Cloud services drive much of the innovation in business today,” said Michael Rosinski, President and CEO of Astoria Software. “A formal partnership with Stilo International allows Astoria Software to extend the enormous benefits of XML editing and XML content management to customers struggling with the high costs and inefficiency of business processes built around Microsoft Word and Adobe FrameMaker.” Rosinski explained that the partnership between Astoria Software and Stilo International lowers a significant barrier to the world of DITA by allowing users to convert content through a portal interface and then load that content into Astoria On-Demand. The content may also be loaded easily into Astoria On-Premises installations.
Commenting on the new partnership, Les Burnham, CEO of Stilo International said, “We are very happy to be working closely with Astoria Software. Migrate significantly streamlines the traditionally time-consuming and error-prone process of content migration. Now Word and FrameMaker users have complete control over content conversion and content authoring, and everything runs in the cloud.”
24x7 Access to Content Conversion and Content Management
The Stilo Migrate and Astoria On-Demand solutions will be available to users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except during scheduled maintenance periods), from any location in the world. Customers will access an Astoria Software-branded conversion portal where they can upload and convert content from Word and FrameMaker into DITA-compliant XML. Customers will have complete control of content mapping rules and exception handling. Converted content will transfer to a customer’s Astoria On-Demand or Astoria On-Premises instance. Customers will have complete control over placement within Astoria, and all content relationships will remain intact. Astoria Software will manage all customer fees and support to ensure a single-vendor experience.
