Enterprise Web content management developer Day Software has launched Communiqué Advanced Collaboration (CQ AC), a Web 2.0 collaboration tool aimed at managing social media. The new collaboration technology integrates with the company's existing Communiqué Web CMS, and incorporates a host of nifty features run off an impressive-sounding Java driven, JSR-compliant bedrock.
The new collaboration tool offers wiki, blog and calender functionality, and provides centralized management (via the smart JCR standard) for social media and metadata types.

This correspondent is impressed with the sound of all this. As such, he didn't really need David Nuescheler, Day CTO, to say anything. But he did anyway:
"Today, companies face significant challenges in managing new social content, in addition to the content that already resides in information silos across their organizations.
Day's new collaboration solution connects companies with the people that posses relevant information and feedback, enabling businesses to streamline management of their social media, while delivering the brand control and consistency required by our blue-chip customers."
You had me at JCR, David. You had me at JCR...
