With the release of TERMINALFOUR Site Manager 7.3 the company continues to build out its web content management system with developers in mind. Last April in v7.2 it focused on making the product easier to use, integrate with and host. In v7.3 the focus is on scalability, migration, website and online management, and self-service capabilities.
Like previous versions, v7.3 also comes with a large number of feature enhancements and the company says it created these enhancements based on client feedback and market demand at the moment.
In the announcement around the release TERMINALFOUR (T4) says the overall goal with all the enhancements is to make developers more productive.
To do this, it comes with a number of user interface improvements as well as an enhanced form builder, improved content editing and digital marketing tools while the multichannel publishing, web services and email marketing functionalities have all received a substantial face-lift.
TERMINALFOUR Site Manager 7.3 is internally called our 'championing the web developer' release. The focus was to enhance developer productivity and enable them to do big things with minimal resources. We believe we've delivered on these objectives resulting in a system that's a tour de force in the web content management market,” Piero Tintori, CEO and founder of TERMINALFOUR said.
T4 Key Updates
However, TERMINALFOUR is pushing two important upgrades in the release as selling points, if the other enhancements are not enough. They are:
In this release, the company has put a lot of work into providing scalability and publishing performance enhancements, particularly in cloud environments and T4 is already in use by enterprises with websites that have more than a million web pages. Along with this comes the all-important improvements to clustering capabilities that facilitates easier management of large web presences.
The auto migration features have also been improved and now come with a configurable HTML importer that enables users to migrate existing websites into Site Manager from either static websites or from legacy web content management systems. According to TERMINALFOUR more than 60% of its new business over the past year involved migrations from other systems including the likes of Interwoven, Vignette, OpenText, Drupal and Documentum.
Also worth a mention here is the fact that TERMINALFOUR Site Manager has recently been named an SIIA Content CODiE Award finalist for 'Best Content Management Platform'.
