Inmedius - Acquisition of LogPerspective's DITA Storm

Inmedius : 16 October, 2007  (New Product)
Inmedius, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of LogPerspective's DITA Storm, a full-featured DITA editing tool that enables authors to easily create DITA-compliant content in WYSIWYG mode regardless of their DITA XML knowledge. The editing environment is 100% browser-based, requiring no timely or costly client installations or updates, and is completely customizable for a superior DITA user experience.

DITA, (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) is an XML-based, end-to-end architecture for creating topic-oriented, information-typed content that can be reused and single-sourced in multiple ways. This architecture consists of a set of design principles for creating 'information-typed' modules at a topic level and for using that content in delivery modes such as online help and product support portals on the Web.

'I am pleased that DITA Storm has been acquired by a company that will help to expand its global adoption,' stated Alex Karezin, creator of DITA Storm at LogPerspective. 'With offices and representation on four continents, Inmedius can support multi-national companies with ease, placing them in a small minority of players in this marketplace.' Alex Karezin will join Inmedius as Senior Product Architect to further its global expansion with the creation of new products, which includes a future solution combining DITA authoring and publishing in one low-cost application.

'There are very few truisms in business, but certainly one of them is having the brightest people who create innovative and useful products to drive a successful company,' stated Gary L. Schaffer, President and CEO, Inmedius. 'DITA Storm fills an important void in the current market between the legacy XML companies, including Adobe® (Nasdaq: ADBE) and PTC® (Nasdaq: PMTC) Arbortext product lines. In each case, these companies have excellent products, but the barriers to entry for new authors, engineers, or even expert users to create technical documentation are very high. We feel that DITA Storm's browser-based platform with WYSIWYG-authoring is a winning strategy to greatly expand the adoption rates of the DITA XML standard. This newly acquired authoring platform fits perfectly with our strategic vision of creating XML-based solutions.'

DITA Storm will be available for purchase worldwide through Inmedius' international network of offices and resellers. To learn more about DITA Storm, visit where you can view detailed product information.
