Systems Alliance Announces CMS SiteExecutive 2014

By CIOReview | Thursday, June 5, 2014

HUNT VALLEY, MD: Systems Analysis Inc (SAI), digital and IT consulting firm helping clients build, assess and optimize online properties and IT operations, has announced the latest version of the company’s Web content management system (CMS), SiteExecutive 2014. The new release will provide multiple enhancements to SiteExecutive structured content functionality as well as improvements to overall performance and workflow. Also introduced in this release is a robust Rest API service that will provide organizations even more flexibility in sharing and reusing content across multiple web properties and platforms.

Structured Content Updates

Structured Content, initially released in SiteExecutive; separates content from presentation, simplifying the process of creating, correlating and distributing content. SAI has continued to build upon this experience, enabling organizations to deliver enriched, dynamic content efficiently and effectively. Users will benefit from various performance enhancements including the ability to define field groups. Field groups streamline the content creation process by allowing authors to define groups within content types. This provides a cleaner and more efficient layout for users to create content quickly.

New Link Report

The new link report in SE2014 is a tool for web managers and information architects. This provides the locations of all templates, CSS, pages, documents, images and multimedia and where they are linked across the site.

Full REST API for all content

Following the example of structured content, the rest service layer is the next step in separating content from presentation. It enables users to unlock content stored in SiteExecutive and allows integration with 3rd party applications.  The new set of APIs in SE2014 will empower application developers to easily integrate their SiteExecutive content with more complex applications such as mobile apps or external portals.  This new set of APIs also promotes better content reuse.

The CKEditor integrated in SiteExecutive 2014 will provide improved stability and capabilities. The upgrade to the editor will allow SiteExecutive to be fully compatible with IE11. The new release also adds improved support for HTML5 tags in the editor.

Other notable features include improvements to the SPAM filtering process and advances to the User Interface. SiteExecutive 2014 will be made generally available in December. Systems Alliance offers the software through perpetual license and SaaS (software as a service) licensing models.
