SAN DIEGO, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyleme (R) Inc., a leading provider of XML content management solutions, today announced the release of a fully integrated learning solution, and its selection by WestNet Learning for the deployment of their next generation of learning content infrastructure. This latest release integrates Xyleme's flagship product, Xyleme Server, with XML authoring tools and a Just-in-Time Learning Services' (JLS) delivery platform, both acquired from Novizio in December, 2004. Xyleme Studio 2.0, an XML authoring and virtual document assembly application, now incorporates native XML content management services, contextual querying, and real-time notifications to provide instructional designers and technical publishers with unprecedented power to efficiently create and manage highly consistent training and knowledge products. From a single source repository of reusable XML objects, training content, including SCORM 2004 courseware, technical manuals, and performance support materials can be dynamically assembled, published, and syndicated across multiple channels using the JLS delivery platform. These unique capabilities provide owners of high-value training content a flexible platform to rapidly develop a new breed of just-in-time knowledge applications. As a premier publisher of learning products and technologies to colleges, universities, and corporations, WestNet Learning offers a blended learning approach that includes textbooks, student guides and skill gap analysis assessment tools, as well as both self-paced and instructor lead on-line learning programs. WestNet chose Xyleme to drive a single source content strategy and significantly lower production and maintenance costs. More importantly, Xyleme Studio's coordinated workflow and flexible reuse of document objects will allow WestNet to further leverage their intellectual capital to generate on-demand, customized training products. "Adopting a single-source XML strategy with Xyleme Studio will give WestNet a win on two fronts," commented Joe Scullion, President and CEO of WestNet Learning. "First, a common source of content allows us to streamline our production and eliminate redundant development. Second, flexible reuse means that we can more rapidly design and assemble customized course curriculums and deliver on-demand training in the format best suited to an individual learner's requirements." "The integration of these products brings learning, technical documentation and knowledge management to an entirely new level," remarked Jeff Katzman, Xyleme's Vice President of U.S. Operations. "With Studio and Xyleme Server, our customers can leverage their content to rapidly create new and innovative products and services. The repurposing and customized assembly of high value information enables organizations to create a consistent user experience, regardless of which information product a customer or partner chooses." Jeff Katzman will be speaking at the Advanced Distributed Learning Plugfest 9 in Gaithersburg, Maryland on Thursday, February 24, where he will be presenting the topic: Single Source for Blended Training Delivery.
