Barely six weeks after announcing the acquisition of Wiki and blogging tools provider Infostoria, FatWire is releasing the first fruits of that deal. Most of the release is a rebranding of existing product, but it also adds some single-click links between the Infostoria line and the FatWire content management products.
The Infostoria products, being rebranded FatWire TeamUp, include a relatively simple means for non-technical users to set up blogs or Wikis, automatically generating emails inviting colleagues or partners to participate. It also enables you to convert blog or wiki content for deployment to mobile devices. It also has its own workflow capabilities, so that formal processes can be applied to setting up and managing blog or wiki content. It provides the requisite file transfer and caching, access control, indexing, tagging, and collaborative communications that you expect for developing and deploying content, except that this is content that has traditionally been considered much less formal.
FatWire claims that it is the first web content management provider to integrate blogs and wikis, or at least, enable you to repurpose content as blogs or wikis without having to move files or copy and paste.
