Collaborative Development Environment Combined with Powerful Translation
Capability Accelerates Enterprise Software Implementations and Increases End
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA., April 23 /CNW/ - OnDemand Software, a division of
Global Knowledge, announces the release of OnDemand Personal Navigator 9.0 at
the 2007 ASUG Annual Conference, the annual event for the world's largest,
customer-driven community of SAP professionals and partners. OnDemand Software
will debut the new product in their Booth #1629 at the conference which is
being held April 23rd - 25th in Atlanta, GA.
OnDemand Personal Navigator is a synchronized content development
platform for business process documentation, test scripts, tailored role-based
training and performance support. From a single authoring session, OnDemand
Personal Navigator produces distinct outputs, including self-running and
interactive simulations, assessments, in-application performance support,
documentation, and training materials. The product is also one of the modules
of OnDemand Professional - the solution for ensuring change management,
achieving organizational readiness, and maximizing ROI.
With OnDemand Personal Navigator 9.0, customers can reduce content
development time with a collaborative, multi-user development environment. New
translation and upgrade capabilities will significantly reduce the time and
effort of creating or updating content in multiple languages. The enhanced
content management library enables customers to produce content that mirrors
true business processes regardless of application.
"We estimate that OnDemand Personal Navigator 9.0 will enable our
customers to dramatically reduce their content development and translation
efforts by up to 60%," said Amy Sellers, Product Manager, Business Objects.
"We are excited that our clients will be able to develop content in a
multi-user environment as well as experience an accelerated implementation due
to the product's powerful translation capabilities. And, the new content
library will make it easier for them to manage and deploy all of their
Business Objects Knowledge Accelerator content (which is powered by OnDemand
Personal Navigator technology)."
OnDemand Personal Navigator 9.0 highlights:
Reduce content development time and ensure content standards with
collaborative, multi-user development environment: New environment provides
insight into content workflow and document management - including check
in/check out, versioning and current status.
Accelerate multi-language implementations and ensure end user adoption
with powerful translation capability: Custom text can be exported for
translation and then imported back to simultaneously propagate multiple
outputs compressing time to deployment. A guided re-record process enables
developers to create content in multiple languages eliminating the time and
cost associated with local language experts.
Enhance content management by re-using content with new library: Single
storage location enables re-use across multiple applications producing content
that mirrors business processes regardless of application boundaries.
Enable user adoption through support for Firefox browser: Support for
Mac, Linux, and Windows allows for expansion of user community and ensures
adoption of business processes.
"OnDemand Software continues to address the changing requirements of our
global customers while keeping their initial investment in mind," said Kevin
C. Riley, President of OnDemand Software. "These expanded capabilities will
dramatically change the way that our customers approach global project
implementations. OnDemand Personal Navigator 9.0 significantly reduces the
time and cost associated with multi-lingual global rollouts."
Joseph W. Cece, CEO and President of Global Knowledge, commented, "Nearly
three years ago we initiated a major commitment of time, resources and funding
to maintain our leadership position in the space. We believe the features,
functionality, user-friendliness, and financial ROI of OnDemand Personal
Navigator 9.0 are unsurpassed in the marketplace. I am extremely proud of the
work of the OnDemand team in the development and launch of this next
generation software product."
The product will be demonstrated at ASUG and will ship in the coming
months in more than 12 languages. For more information, please visit
