Features and benefits
IBM WebSphere® XML Document Management Server is a high performance server that offers an application-independent and service-independent way to manage XML documents of any type, including group lists, user profiles, contact information, authorization rules, and policy data.
- WebSphere XML Document Management Server benefits
- Improve the user experience by enabling customers to reuse information such as group lists, profiles and preferences across applications.
- Facilitate efforts to get to market quickly by using standardized data access mechanisms for XML-based information.
- Simplify management by centrally managing information from multiple vendors’ applications, using IETF, OMA, ETSI and 3GPP standards.
- Support legacy and next-generation services.
- Application and service independent
WebSphere XML Document Management Server (XDMS) enables the integration of XML-based information across applications and services. For example, group information from one vendor’s instant messaging application can be displayed and updated in another vendor’s contact book application. This degree of flexibility supports efforts to simplify and improve the customer experience for end users. And service providers can facilitate integration of new applications and services without recreating common information.
- Support any XML document type
WebSphere XDMS can store and manage any XML document type. Examples of XML documents commonly used for services are:
- Group lists
- User profiles
- Contact information
- Authorization rules
- Policy data
CSPs and third party vendors can expand the capabilities by adding additional document types. For example, a provider could enable all of its applications to utilize common contact highlights documents. WebSphere XDMS also includes pre-built document frameworks based on OMA standards, including Shared XDMS, RLS XDMS, Content and Presence XDMS.
