Nuxeo, makers of an open source content management platform for business applications, today announced the availability of Nuxeo Platform 5.5, have upgraded the company’s unified platform for building and running content-centric applications.

Nuxeo Platform 5.5 offers a complete set of enterprise content management applications, including document, digital asset and case management, as well as social collaboration features, mobile readiness, and an improved developer experience. It helps IT deploy a large range of solutions in a single repository – from basic to customized, vertically specific, content-centric applications.

Nuxeo Platform 5.5 streamlines communications and interactions within enterprises with a new social collaboration module that enables capturing of project- and community-centric exchanges with a searchable and traceable flow. Features include new social workspaces, an activity stream, circle-based relationship network management, and micro-messaging.

In addition, Nuxeo Platform 5.5 now delivers features to any Android-based mobile device. A ready-to-use Android client SDK is delivered separately, offering API access to power customization, synchronization, client-side storage, and authentication and offline capabilities. The solution also offers an offline mode; documents and content are available on the mobile device even when it is offline, and content and documents are synced back to the server when the connection resumes.

Improved Developer Experience

Developers building on Nuxeo Platform 5.5 will benefit from Nuxeo IDE features such as its hot-reload capability, wizards, and templates, as well as a range of new features for Nuxeo Studio, the customization and configuration environment provided as a service for the platform, such as better support for multimedia assets and case-centric applications.

User interface and graphic designers will welcome a new theme and style engine that makes it easier to customize the look and feel, offering a cascading style-sheet framework.

Architects can build on a unified software platform that meets the requirements of multiple, complex enterprise projects and all content management needs. The single underlying platform and infrastructure now includes modules for document, digital asset and case management, resulting in simpler application maintenance and management.

The modular, flexible architecture of the Nuxeo Platform enables developers to focus solely on design and development; it also reduces IT costs by easily fitting into any IT strategy, architecture, or design easily. It also accelerates and automates many of the manual processes of customization work, enabling architects to focus entirely on the specific needs of business applications and function innovations, rather than custom code, ensuring delivery of reliable, sustainable, high-quality code and software that can be easily upgraded without recreating the custom capabilities.

Nuxeo Platform 5.5 is currently available on premise or as platform-as-a-service (PaaS) in the cloud, enabling maximum deployment and management flexibility so organizations are not locked into a single option, whether content, application or infrastructure. The Nuxeo Connect subscription is available to offer support, maintenance, and an automated customization toolset with the option of a development-to-deployment environment in the cloud.
