Inmagic Announces Presto for DB/Text

Inmagic introduced a new product that will bring advanced web publishing capabilities to DB/TextWorks customers. The new product, Presto for DB/Text, is a limited version of Inmagic Presto that will enable many new web publishing capabilities for DB/Text, while allowing textbases to continue to be created and maintained in DB/TextWorks. Presto for DB/Text will work with both SQL and non-SQL versions of DB/TextWorks.

A few of the capabilities provided by Presto for DB/Text include:

  • The ability to easily search across all textbases at once and display results in one view
  • The ability to provide custom homepages to securely deliver different content to different audiences
  • Support for SDI initiatives with email alerts and RSS feeds
  • Integration of social features such as tagging, ratings, and comments
  • The ability to select and act on multiple search results items including Info-Cart, Email, Print, or Save
  • Advanced image handling including autothumbnail and gallery views without programming

Presto for DB/Text has been designed for customers who require advanced web publishing capabilities without the need for custom programming, which is often necessary when using WebPublisher PRO. Presto for DB/Text does not replace WebPublisher PRO, however; WebPublisher PRO will continue to be enhanced and supported. Presto for DB/Text just gives DB/Text customers an additional option for publishing information to the internet or their intranet.

Presto for DB/Text will also include additional optional features that can be purchased now or at a later time. Some of these features include:

  • SharePoint integration
  • Federated search (e.g., the ability to search an external database such as EBSCO while simultaneously searching a DB/Text database)
  • SSO via Active Directory
  • Integration capabilities via a published WCF API
  • The ability to add and create native Presto databases/content types
