Quark (http://www.quark.com) has teamed with IBM Enterprise Content
Management (ECM) to enable the broad adoption of XML across the
enterprise by integrating Quark XML Author with IBM FileNet Content

By eliminating barriers previously associated with the creation of
DITA-based XML, Quark makes it possible for any IBM FileNet Content
Manager user working in Microsoft Word to author intelligent content
that can be reused and delivered to multiple channels or formats,
says Ken Bisconti, vice president of Products and Strategy, IBM
Enterprise Content Management. “By integrating Quark XML Author into
IBM FileNet Content Manager we are helping enable customers to unlock
the value of their business content to reduce costs, increase
productivity, improve quality of service, and gain competitive
advantage,” he adds.

Bisconti says the ability to author, manage, and reuse structured
content enables critical business needs, such as managing
intellectual property, complying with regulatory mandates, and
automating business processes. A simple and streamlined process for
XML authoring also allows organizations to:
Enable enterprise-wide adoption of XML and DITA;

Capture and manage the knowledge of business users more effectively;

Increase the return on content management investments.
“Quark’s goal is to move XML authoring from technical experts to
non-technical business users and content owners, making it easier for
enterprises to create and manage intelligent, structured content,”
says Ray Schiavone, president and CEO of Quark. “We are pleased to be
working with IBM ECM to combine easy and familiar XML authoring with
the benefits of enterprise content management.”
