Ekumo Enters into the International Market

Web-based content management system helps companies create and maintain their documentation

Ekumo GmbH's (www.ekumo.de) web-based content management system, which goes by the same name, offers a solution that is suitable for companies with a small editorial department, and for industrial enterprises with sites distributed throughout the world. All functions required to create, maintain, and manage text and media can be controlled conveniently using a web browser. The web-based approach means that all those involved have access to the latest information at all times. The system allows savings of over 70 per cent to be generated in the editing process. In addition, the system architecture reduces the administrative workload considerably, keeping maintenance costs to a minimum.

The Ekumo content management system came about as part of an application developed for commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN, and has continuously evolved since then, and been adapted to changing market and customer requirements. Today, it offers users an entirely web-based content management system which includes all functions required for the collaborative authoring, editing, organisation, checking and publication of technical documents and complex product information. Among its other features, the system includes an integrated text and image editor, as well as an automated checking and translation workflow. The information is published automatically in various formats - as a complete information portal on the web, in printable PDF format, or as a Word or InDesign document.

Ekumo's main target group is manufacturers of producer durable goods, such as car and medical technology manufacturers, and mechanical engineering companies, but also other companies that document their processes. These companies are required to provide detailed descriptions and information, which are frequently updated.

End users also benefit from the web-based approach: They are able to download the latest maintenance instructions and service information for products they have purchased from the system.

Mike Petersen, CEO of Ekumo GmbH sums it up by saying: "The only way in which companies can create, manage, and publish their technical documentation efficiently across departments and locations is by taking an entirely web-based approach. Our collaboration environment means that subsidiaries in all countries have immediate access to the latest information, without any loss of time. What is more, suppliers are able to integrate their documentation directly into the manufacturer's content management system.

About Ekumo GmbH

Ekumo GmbH specialises in developing and marketing the content management system for technical documentation of the same name. The company, which is based in Berlin, was founded at the end of 2009 as a spin-off of Digiden GmbH. Prior to this, a dedicated team had already invested more than seven years in developing products together with practitioners and academics. Ekumo is an entirely web-based content management system and includes all of the functions required for authoring, editing, organising, checking and publishing technical documents and complex product information. Ekumo maps all workflows - from the integrated authoring environment through to publication in multiple languages. Companies with several different sites and suppliers benefit particularly from its collaboration approach. They are all able to access the latest information with no time delay.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
