ANNOUNCE: Hosted XML Content Management -- Is it Right For You?
(Sponsored by DocZone.com)

Technical documentation and training departments have long recognized the value of migrating content to XML to attain the benefits of content reuse, streamlined localization, and single-source publishing. But, most organizations have never been able to justify the high cost and long implementation cycles required to install an in-house XML content management solution.

However, a new alternative has emerged -- the hosted XML content management environment. According to a new white paper from leading research firm InfoTrends, over 40% of their survey respondents would either "prefer" or "definitely consider" a hosted solution.

To download a free copy of this white paper, which also includes four hurdles to successful implementation and an overview of DocZone.com's pioneering hosted solution, visit our website at:
