Optimation introduce Rex iServer

OPTIMATION is preparing to launch the first version of Rex e-business software developed since it acquired the company in August, but has no immediate plans to appoint more resellers to the range.

The integrator bought Rex Software to expand its existing portfolio of content management software and is launching a new version of the suite in December.

The new product, to be known as Rex iServer, will be made available to Optimation’s and Rex’s existing customers. Meanwhile, Optimation will continue to work with four resellers currently representing the range and will not add to this number at present.

“We may review this in six to nine months time,” says Optimation managing director Neil Butler. Optimation acquired Rex as it slotted well into its content management and managed services portfolio.

“These have become areas of focus and strength for us and Rex offered unique aspects that were attractive,” says Butler, adding the range has enabled Optimation to offer customers a cost-effective option for less complex content management requirements, with the scalability and flexibility to grow with their business requirements.

Butler says Optimation is well suited to continue development of the product as it has a strong development team based in Wellington, with software application engineering representing a significant part of its business.

According to Butler, Rex iServer will be an enterprise-ready product, which will incorporate key elements of RexComposer and RexConductor, including user-friendly content management and intranet development tools.

“Our vision for Rex has always included the move to an open, scalable component-based architecture that will offer enhanced performance, flexibility and reliability,” he says.

The software will let customers manage multiple sites from a single location, acting as a key information delivery system across the enterprise, says Butler. He says its .NET-based architecture enables integration with existing applications and infrastructure, and provides a framework for bespoke application development.

Butler says the new product will allow the company to address a great need that exists in the content management market.
