Verdi is a sophisticated enterprise web content management system built in C# for the MS.net framework. It is a fully featured, highly functional and flexible system that is available as both a hosted service or as software to deploy on your own hosting infrastructure.
In a market segment that has many products claiming to be "content management systems", Verdi is a true Enterprise web CMS, but comes at a fraction of the price tag of other comparable international enterprise products.
Verdi allows the rapid set up and management of multiple websites, intranets and extranets from a single easy to use browser-based administration console. Each site can have its own look and feel, and each site can have its own unique domain name for its website address.
It is widely used in government and corporate environments, and there are currently multiple installations throughout Australia within commercial, government and not-for-profit organisations.
Verdi empowers users with fast content editing using Verdi's one-click Edit Pencil. Verdi supports a wide variety of content types including richly formatted HTML, images and Flash, Flash video, documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, etc.), streaming media sources and database applications.
The Verdi content pool has been designed to make it easier to integrate with Open Document Management Architecture (ODMA) compliant applications, which means that Verdi can be customised to read content from other ODMA-compliant software products. This integration can allow Verdi to display content from a variety of Document Management Systems, with TRIM eDMS being currently supported.
Systems Integration is one of Verdi's strengths, and third party applications can integrate within the Verdi framework. To assist with this, the Verdi API is provided at no extra charge.
The Verdi system comes with over twenty standard modules included in the license fee. Modules such as Events Calendar, Document Library, Employment, Mailing lists, News, News teasers, Survey polls, FAQs, Restricted access Extranet, Navigation shortcuts and breadcrumbs, Search facilities, Contact lists, Site Map, New since Last log in, and a user-definable RSS feed Display module.
Verdi can ensure adherence to web standards and best practice including version control with rollback, records management, W3C usability, accessibility and a choice of Dublin Core, AGLS or other metadata standards. Content scheduling is a standard feature as are LDAP & Active Directory integration capabilities.
Verdi is built using ASP/ASP.Net, COM, XML and AJAX technologies, and is designed to operate in a Microsoft hosting environment. The system is highly scalable and may operate on single servers or in a multiple load-balanced clustered server environment.
Additional modules are available as part of the Verdi suite. These include the Verdi Advertising Manager that enables easy management of site advertising; the Verdi Remote Publisher which enables the site to be output as static HTML pages to remote server or CD / DVD; the Verdi Advanced Email Campaign Manager for production and dispatch of dynamically personalised and content customised emails; and the Verdi Advanced Workflow Manager which enables complex multi-stage parallel and series workflow processes to be used for staged content approval.
Verdi is often used as the core platform that, together with custom application development, allows you to achieve a 100% purpose-built solution. The Verdi API is available for system integration, and the Verdi team can be engaged to design and build custom modules and applications to integrate your own systems with Verdi.
