July 30, 2008 - Informa plc selected Xyleme LCMS, for single source content development and multichannel publishing of training content in several of its performance improvement companies.


The recently completed proof-of-concept phase saw successful integration with Documentum eRoom and digital asset management technologies resulting in single, seamless environment for collaboration, storage and advanced reusability across products, brands and business units.


As the provider of subscription-based products, books, events and the parent of several well-known performance improvement companies, Informa needed to remedy production delays and quality issues encountered when trying to deliver localized training and customized courses to their global clients. The company selected Xyleme LCMS to create granular XML based-content and repurpose it based on the unique requirements and variables of each of their brands. Informa will also use Xyleme LCMS to simultaneously publish this content as lesson plans, student guides, e-learning, synchronized PowerPoint and other formats.


“One of the most significant contributions of the new system is the movement toward nonlinear product development,” commented Bob Hecht, vice president of content strategies at Informa. “Xyleme LCMS enables us to independently create and review course sections, mix and match modules for easy customization and publish courses on demand worldwide, significantly decreasing our overall product development time.”
