After the Past 2 Days it's all About Return on Information. Xenos ES
Enables Organizations to Reduce Reuse Recycle Structured and Unstructured
Electronic Data and Documents
TORONTO, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Xenos Group Inc. (TSX: XNS) today announced the
launch of the Xenos Enterprise Server(TM), the product of a 25-year quest for
an intelligent framework for electronic information infrastructure and
management in the complex modern enterprise.
Xenos Enterprise Server(TM) (Xenos ES(TM)) resolves the challenge of
rationalizing business information architecture and flow by Streamlining
Enterprise Information Supply Chains(TM) and eliminating redundancies arising
from the storage of the same information in a variety of formats. It is a
server-based infrastructure solution that delivers organizational control over
all requisite resources for data and document transformation from a
centralized location in the enterprise. Xenos ES provides a robust, flexible
solution for consolidating disparate and/or legacy technologies, systems and
data located across the enterprise and readily integrates with the existing
components of an organization's information supply chains. Xenos Enterprise
Server(TM) delivers a superior Return on Information(TM) by making information
available where, when and how it is needed. This improves operational
efficiency, enhances business processes, reduces risk for compliance
management and increases employee productivity both for the enterprise and for
"There are three specific reasons why Xenos Enterprise Server is the
software product right for our times," said Stuart Butts, Chairman and CEO,
Xenos Group Inc. "First, enterprises can use Xenos ES to address the IT
challenges typically associated with divestitures and mergers & acquisitions.
Second, it addresses the strategic challenge of managing the explosive growth
in, and convergence of, structured and unstructured data and documents. Third,
initially conceived as the route to the paperless office, Xenos ES allows
enterprises to achieve efficient and effective communications while reducing
their carbon footprint."
Business information is commonly held or received in a variety of
incompatible formats. This often hampers strategic activities including
mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations or the creation of new information
supply chains driven by new business initiatives. Xenos ES provides a scalable
architectural framework that enables organizations to achieve their strategic
objectives by supporting enterprise information extraction, transformation,
repurposing, personalization and delivery for both structured and unstructured
data and documents. Xenos ES unlocks strategic information assets held in
incompatible formats and repurposes them to required formats as and when
needed to address changing business needs. In addition, Xenos ES facilitates
the migration of disparate legacy document and image archives into fewer or a
single archive, which can dramatically reduce the costs associated with
unnecessary licenses, maintenance, training and support.
"C-level executives are now recognizing the business drivers for managing
information as a strategic asset to improve operational efficiency, promote
transparency and enable business insight. Without an Enterprise Information
Architecture (EIA), information will continue to add cost (increased demands
for storage), complexity (silos), and risk (compliance etc). Proper alignment
into a unified information infrastructure can resolve many of the challenges,"
said Debra Logan, VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner.
Xenos ES is the only solution to provide a highly scalable,
component-based J2EE architecture that supports the extraction, transformation
and repurposing of both structured and unstructured data as an enterprise
service in SOA environments. Xenos ES enables organizations to access and
leverage the business-critical content they require for their
lines-of-business Content-Enabled Vertical Applications (CEVAs) including:
customer and partner-developed or third-party applications that require
ePresentment for electronic statement, report and image archive storage and
retrieval; secure online distribution of banking, brokerage, credit card,
insurance, telco, government, retail and manufacturing statements or
operational reports; 1:1 customer correspondence for personalized
communications; straight-through-processing for insurance policy underwriting
and claims handling; credit card and mortgage loan processing; online
presentment of tax forms for government portals; secure delivery of healthcare
documents; B2B data interchange among trading partners, and more.
As an enterprise-class solution, Xenos ES is built on a fault-tolerant,
server-based J2EE architecture that also provides job scheduling, load
balancing, clustering, monitoring, failover, notification and error-handling,
to ensure reliability. Xenos ES is designed to process millions of
transactions, each with sub-second performance.
"An electronic information system is not inherently green. Its relative
"greenness" depends on how it is designed and used and what it replaces," said
Mr. Butts. "We believe that the Xenos Enterprise Server will empower our
customers to apply the green mantra "Reduce Reuse Recycle" to information
resources and that the benefits will be enormous from both an environmental
and business perspective."
Xenos Enterprise Server is immediately available from Xenos. Pricing
starts at US$70,000, (pnds stlg)35,000, or (euro) 50,000.
