Products

Gnostyx delivers its technology innovations through two inter-related product offerings: Gnostyx Lab and Gnostyx Framework. These products address a key reality in that organizations are typically unfamiliar with content technologies and therefore understandably cautious about how they can be introduced, managed, and supported.

Gnostyx Lab

A collaborative workspace where stakeholders from across an organization can participate in the process of planning and tracking their initiatives, justifying their investments, analyzing content holdings, defining content requirements, designing content models, consulting reference materials, prototyping new information services, selecting technologies, and iteratively developing, testing, refining, and supporting, their content solutions. Through this collaborative workspace, organizations can also access a constantly evolving and expanding collection of Gnostyx tools that facilitate important steps in the content project lifecycle.

Gnostyx Framework

An implementation framework that organizes the deployment of content technology components so that the resulting content solutions will be cost-effective, scalable, and sustainable. This framework deploys a proven solution design pattern that helps organizations accelerate the pace at which they adopt, deploy, and leverage content technologies. The Gnostyx Framework also provides a structured deployment model that facilitates the integration and operation of open source components, third-party commercial products, and the Gnostyx tools, in a way that is efficient and effective, as well as adaptable and supportable.
