The SGML & XML Quality Assurance Solution
With Inmedius Advisor®, you don’t have to worry about whether or not your authored SGML or XML content conforms to rules and standards. Authors no longer have to manually check each and every SGML and XML document. Advisor automates Quality Assurance and ensures delivery of material that meets your needs.
Advanced Quality Assurance tool for SGML and XML data ensures conformance to business rules and document standards.
Use Advisor to go beyond the simple, structural validation that a Document Type Definition (DTD) or Schema parser does, to give your customer the SGML and XML content they want and expect. Advisor is completely configurable to your Quality Assurance rules, and features a broad library of validation templates that will guarantee authored SGML and XML content has the data your business needs defined.
Advisor allows non-technical users to create SGML or XML business rules, enabling rapid validation of documents to an organization’s standards. From simple to complex rule checking, implement a standard without any coding, yet allow yourself the security that SGML and XML documents maintain and pass the quality standard you want to have enforced.
In addition to ensuring the quality of its SGML and XML documents through the use of extensive quality validation rules, Advisor is the first of its kind to integrate S1000D Business Rules Exchange (BREX) with authoring and management functions. This combination of the Business Rules and BREX engine allows for the validation of project and internal rule sets, along with the unique S1000D requirements. Users can read and export BREX data from the CSDB client, with project BREX lists available to integrated authoring.
For a complete document lifecycle solution, Advisor integrates seamlessly with S1000Dmanager.
Manager, part of the modular Inmedius S1000D Publishing Suite, is a comprehensive management system offering extensive features that provide a framework for controlling the development of technical data utilizing S1000D publishing concepts.
Quickly and easily create content rules using pre-defined validation templates for Attributes, Children, Elements, Files and XPath. Advisor is completely configurable to the user’s Quality Assurance (QA) rules. It features a broad collection of validation templates that will ensure authored SGML and XML content adhere to pre-defined business rules and standards.
Configure custom content rules that go beyond the simple, structural validation that a Document Type Definition (DTD) or Schema parser does. With Adviser, users select rules from an extensive library of validation templates. Authors are guaranteed that the SGML and XML content has the data that their business needs define.
Build and customize new XML Path Language (XPath) rules to meet complex organizational validation requirements. Users can also logically group validation rules into “AND/OR” combinations.
Create and manage separate rule files for different projects; ensuring that each project has its own validation requirements.
Quickly validate documents against your organization’s QA standards. From simple to complex rules checking, authors can implement a standard without any coding, yet have the piece of mind that SGML and XML documents maintain and pass the quality standards that they want enforced.
Create content rules in the graphical interface, select the SGML or XML document to validate and Advisor takes care of the rest. Authors no longer have to manually check each and every SGML and XML document. The SGML and XML Quality Assurance process is transferred from man to machine.
Advisor automatically generates a report containing the specific content errors with a document. The report specifies which rule was broken and details the exact line where the error occurs. Authors can quickly and easily use the information to make the required alterations to ensure that the document conforms to the business rules.
Print detailed information on content discrepancies for tracking and heightened accountability. Users can create an entire detailed history of their QA process.
The following configuration is a recommended standard configuration. It assumes only Inmedius product installed on the server, and that the database is installed properly on a separate, adequate server. If other Inmedius products and/or the database are installed on the same machine, additional hardware may be required.
