Woburn, MA (PRWEB) June 17, 2008 -- At SLA 2008 today, Inmagic, Inc. unveiled a new strategic direction and product lineup that will thrust the company to the forefront of the social media race. Inmagic will leverage the company's market and technological leadership in specialized libraries and research asset management to usher in an entirely new class of software: the Social Knowledge Network.

Leading the charge will be the next version of Inmagic Presto, a new, socialized version of Inmagic's popular knowledge repository, which the company plans to ship in Fall 2008. "Social Presto" will elegantly blend social media features with an enterprise knowledge repository, search, access, and discovery tools, giving users a 360-degree view of their information assets. This version will extend the capabilities of Presto used today by leading organizations such as NASA, Newsweek, Cephalon, The Lincoln Center, RV Anderson, and OPHEA.

There's tremendous relevancy of the future and value of content technologies to organizations in Inmagic's new direction

This is a very exciting time to be building and contemplating the many possibilities for content technologies. Inmagic's new plan is rolling out with such varied customer success stories already in the making.

Inmagic's mission has always been to help customers address critical information and knowledge-based challenges through industry leading tools and innovative applications

We make strategic content accessible and easily shared to anyone, anywhere. That will never change. What is changing is augmenting these strengths with a new focus on socializing enterprise knowledge to help organizations expose their collective wisdom in ways that are more meaningful and relevant today.

It will provide both managed and searchable interfaces to internal and external data, and will unify structured and unstructured content -- including documents, images, audio, video, Web sites, blogs, RSS feeds, and more -- to help organizations integrate top-down vetted information (or content) with bottom-up personal content that captures the collective "wisdom of the community".

The result: a new generation "Social Knowledge Network" that will span functional groups, eliminate information silos, and expose the collective wisdom of the organization to empower knowledge workers to rapidly meet business objectives enabling true "social intelligence" in an organization. Social Knowledge Networks will become strategically important for a range of knowledge-based applications including: Social Libraries, Research Asset Management, Competitive Intelligence, Consumer Insight and Innovation, IP and Knowledge Capture, Regulatory Compliance, Knowledge Preservation, Medical Affairs Management, and Influence Marketing.

"There's tremendous relevancy of the future and value of content technologies to organizations in Inmagic's new direction," says Leonor Ciarlone, Senior Analyst of the Gilbane Group. "This is a very exciting time to be building and contemplating the many possibilities for content technologies. Inmagic's new plan is rolling out with such varied customer success stories already in the making."

As part of Inmagic's strategic plan, the company launched a new Web site and blog, both of which reflect the company's emergence as a leader in the evolution of social knowledge networks.

"Inmagic's mission has always been to help customers address critical information and knowledge-based challenges through industry leading tools and innovative applications," says Paul J. Puzzanghera, CEO of Inmagic. "We make strategic content accessible and easily shared to anyone, anywhere. That will never change. What is changing is augmenting these strengths with a new focus on socializing enterprise knowledge to help organizations expose their collective wisdom in ways that are more meaningful and relevant today."
