Canadian collaboration and content management software provider Open Text Corp [OTEX] has unveiled new products and outlined details of its future development roadmap for its flagship Livelink platform.
On the product front, Open has extended the collaboration features in Livelink 9.2 with a revised interface and team workspaces. Also added is a new project status overview page and new icon bars for quick navigation within workspaces.
As part of 9.2, Open Text rolled out a new optional module called Livelink Companion that increases information flows between user communities through URL link sharing, commenting, and rating.
Open Text also introduced a new version of its Web publishing solution, featuring Website templates, attribute driven publication, improved scalability and workflow integration, and archiving for compliance. The new functionality is being offered as part of Livelink for Web Publishing package.
Looking further ahead, it is looking to add Java code alongside Livelink’s proprietary scripting language.
This will not signal the end of OScript, but rather reflects the fact that most development around Livelink is now Java-based.
Development efforts in early 2004 will focus on beefing up Livelink infrastructure in areas such as reliability, availability, manageability, and security.
New specific applications are being developed in partnership with third parties; while a significant amount of R&D investment would be targeted at integrating technologies from its recent acquisitions
