According to Mario Duckett, MetaSource VP Enterprise Content Solutions, “The release of AX 8.1 builds nicely upon the recent release of 8.0. Together, they represent an incredible opportunity for MetaSource and its 150 partners to provide a clear path to the future for our 3,000+ customers as well as creating a pathway to introduce this content management technology to unlimited new prospects. The ability MetaSource and its partners have to be able to deliver solutions built on this new ApplicationXtender platform, with browser independence and REST APIs, means we can deliver AX to more organizations and integrate to more core business applications. This new release of AX by EMC’s ECD team also provides a clear message to the markets both here in North America and abroad that EMC is committed to ApplicationXtender and its future.”
