HAMBURG, Germany and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 12, 2013

HAMBURG, Germanyand SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreMedia, a
leading Web Content Management (WCM) company, today announced CoreMedia 7, the
latest release of its innovative WCM platform. CoreMedia 7 is designed to help
enterprises keep pace and thrive in the rapidly-changing business landscape
that is driven by mobility, social engagement, on-demand technology and
content-driven customer interactions. With CoreMedia 7, both business and IT
users can respond to the pressure to quickly deliver relevant and engaging
content to their customers across multiple channels. As a result, businesses
can rapidly innovate online, enhance customer experience management
capabilities and create revenue-generating customer experiences. 

According to IT analyst firm Gartner, business today is being shaped by four
"Nexus of Forces" — social, mobile, cloud and information. A recent report
notes, "The forces combine to empower individuals as the forces interact with
one another and their information through well-designed ubiquitous technology.
Organizations of all types can harness the power of the Nexus to engage with
their customers and staff, learn through the observation of behavior and
interaction patterns, and create compelling experiences."[i] With CoreMedia 7,
businesses will be able to capitalize on these market drivers, making it
simpler and faster to deliver highly-engaging, contextual and interactive
cross-channel experiences at every stage of the customer journey.

CoreMedia 7 Key Features and Benefits:

  oEmbrace a Mobile-first World – CoreMedia enhanced CoreMedia 7 with more
    advanced and comprehensive mobile publishing options than any other system
    on the market. Companies can create unified experiences across all mobile
    channels and delivery models – Web apps, native apps, responsive Web pages
    and legacy devices. CoreMedia 7 can adapt to any visitor on any channel,
    providing contextual and social content support on any mobile device.
  oMake Cloud Computing Work for the Enterprise – CoreMedia 7 allows
    enterprises to deploy to the cloud while maintaining security integrity,
    visibility, scalability and control. With this release, CoreMedia goes
    beyond the limited "cloud ready" capabilities of other WCM platforms to
    put the best of cloud technology to work, making it easier for businesses
    to deploy portions of their implementations in the cloud. Furthermore,
    businesses have the flexibility to choose any cloud deployment
    environment, whether it be on-premise, cloud, virtual or hybrid.
  oSupport Social Interactions – CoreMedia 7 arms companies to seamlessly
    manage content generated from two separate sources, internal and external.
    The platform deeply integrates CoreMedia's Elastic Social software, which
    leverages NoSQL architecture to help enterprises easily scale to support
    growing social conversations. CoreMedia 7 also includes advanced social
    tools for interacting with community members, publishing social content
    and moderating activity.
  oDeliver Highly-Contextual Content – Today's business decisions are driven
    by content with context. To make customer interactions profitable,
    businesses must deliver the right content to the user at every stage of
    the customer journey. New features in CoreMedia 7 make it easier for all
    users to create highly-targeted, contextualized experiences for current
    and potential customers.
  oEmpower Users Across Departments – With this release, CoreMedia optimized
    CoreMedia Studio, its editorial hub for business users, to incorporate a
    customizable user dashboard and over 70 performance and usability
    enhancements. Using a single, intuitive information-based editorial
    interface, business users can design customer experiences – moving way
    beyond the traditional page-based tools. They can launch new online web
    properties, campaigns and microsites quickly without IT support. CoreMedia
    7 also more deeply engrains Blueprint, its rapid Web development solution,
    offering a wealth of out-of-the-box solution components and pre-configured
    templates that is already proving to dramatically reduce implementation
