MAIDENHEAD, U.K., and WAKEFIELD, Mass. – September 6, 2016 – SDL today announced that Appatura has selected SDL XPP, the industry's premier XML publishing solution, to augment its newest content and digital publishing platform, Real Time Disclosure.

SDL technology helps Appatura to better serve its clients by creating more relevant, personalized content on a global scale. Real Time Disclosure allows users across multiple industries to create, package and publish time-sensitive regulatory and marketing content efficiently, easily and accurately to web, mobile and traditional publishing channels.

Real Time Disclosure organizes content into granular, reusable meta-rich components. These components can then be filtered automatically according to a series of predefined workflow and business rules. Rules ensure adherence to compliance and regulatory requirements but still deliver flexibility to a company for style and branding, regardless of channel or device. By leveraging SDL XPP’s rules-based automated batch processing capabilities, Real Time Disclosure is now able to master the complex actions to push, package and render assembled content more efficiently.

“As SDL is an established and trusted global solution provider within the financial industry, we knew we could rely on their technology for our demanding content packaging and publishing needs,” said Faisal Fareed, CIO, Appatura. “From rules-based automated batch processing to composition controls and post-editing change management, the technology meets all the requirements we need to deliver high-quality, compliant publishing for our customers.”

With SDL’s technology, Appatura can offer its customers flexible and powerful solutions to personalize its content through automation. They can produce a variety of simultaneous output formats that include print-ready PDF, web-ready PDF, HTML and several industry-specific configurations like EDGAR HTML. SDL XPP also provides user-defined composition controls and page-based composition to make the publishing process flexible and customizable for each customer’s needs.
 
“Publishing is one of the key functions of any content management system,” said Adolfo Hernandez, CEO, SDL. “We are proud that our world-class, high-volume solution is a trusted publishing resource for critical global industries such as finance. We are delighted to help Appatura exceed the needs set forth by their customers and the financial industry and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
