EntropySoft Content Hub Appliance packages a single point of access to information and document transfer features

Following the release of new CMS connectors, EntropySoft, a specialist of content integration, released its Content Hub Appliance. Content Hub Appliance is a single platform that provides out-of-the-box connectivity for over 30 applications and comes with the ability to easily transfer documents.

In only a few clicks, an administrator can connect the organization’s document repositories to Content Hub Appliance. The repositories become available to all applications consuming or producing information in the company. This is done in a matter of hours. Content Hub Appliance provides a single point of access to all the connected repositories through the EntropySoft Web Services, CMIS (Web Services and REST implementations), Java, java remote and .Net.

Besides this single point of access, all companies using Content Hub Appliance are saving money thanks to the fact that all connectivity is now shared between applications.

Furthermore, for the past five years, by working with large corporate clients, EntropySoft has developed two domains of expertise that it is ready to share. The first expertise domain is to connect any document management system to any archiving platform; the second one is to synchronize two document repositories. Thanks to content transfer bridge templates that can be provided by EntropySoft, it is now a question of hours to be ready to synchronize two silos or connect applications to an archiving platform.

The virtual appliance can be downloaded from EntropySoft’s support site. It only takes minimal installation and configuration for the virtual machine to be ready to start operating in the customer environment. In a matter of hours, the single point of access is deployed and made-to-measure content transfer bridges can be uploaded to enable document transfers and repository synchronization..

“Large organizations use EntropySoft Content ETL in their environments to manage advanced document transfers. Software vendors use EntropySoft connectors to simplify information access. With Content Hub Appliance, EntropySoft is bringing content integration to a large audience” said Nicolas Maquaire, EntropySoft CEO. “Companies of all sizes will now be able to synchronize silos easily and also archive all documents coming from over 30 different content repositories in a matter of hours.”

The single access point and ability to easily transfer documents are offered by EntropySoft on a monthly subscription basis and a pay-as-you-use model that includes content transfer, archive to and synchronization.

EntropySoft Content Hub Appliance offers a global access to information to your line-of-business applications and shares all your connectivity in one spot. Content Hub Appliance comes with 40 connectors under the hood.
