Perforce Software announced today the availability of Perforce Chronicle, the company’s new Web Content Management System (WCMS), introducing powerful new capabilities for website development and management. By combining enterprise-class version management with a user-friendly WYSIWYG editor, Perforce Chronicle significantly improves web team collaboration, productivity and accuracy.
“Web content management systems must enable greater business agility,” said Mick MacComascaigh, Research VP, Gartner Inc. “They must empower the business professionals responsible for website effectiveness to play a more active role in producing the ever-increasing volume of content. The ability to extend the pool of site contributors without complicating workflows or compromising the consistency or accuracy of the site will be a leading consideration in the WCMS market.”
A Versioning-Driven Approach
Chronicle’s versioning technology makes web managers more productive by helping them manage the constant flow of website change—site functionality, workflows, content, new projects and teams, permissions, site configurations and more. Chronicle automates many of the formerly time-consuming manual tasks associated with moving content from development to staging to production, and raises productivity by enabling parallel site updates without conflict.
“Despite the many WCM solutions on the market, costly collaboration and deployment challenges have persisted,” said Dr. Sunit Gala, CEO of Blisstering Solutions, a leading provider of content management solutions and services. “Perforce was the first to recognize that these collaboration and site management issues are directly solved through version control, an area in which the company has significant expertise. With its new Chronicle product, Perforce has delivered a solution that not only raises productivity and promotes teamwork, but also eliminates common systemic and human errors resulting from inadequate version management.”
Fewer Website Errors and Inconsistencies
Chronicle significantly reduces errors by providing the ability to compare and deploy web pages and content. This improves accuracy and site-wide consistency, and enables web managers to confidently extend branches of the site to additional contributors. Chronicle also meets corporate requirements for compliance by protecting and automatically backing up site content.
Benefits of Chronicle:
“Web teams are hindered by time-consuming staging and deployment processes and errors that result from the having to keep track of content iterations on dev, staging and live environments,” said Furkhan Khan, Director of Product Marketing for Perforce Software. “We’re able to address these issues by taking a versioning-first approach. We have a rich history of solving collaboration problems for global software development teams and now we’re bringing our expertise in this area to web teams.”
