Mindwrap announced today the release of Optix version 6 for Apple Computer’s Mac OS X Server version 10.3 “Panther”, available for use on Apple’s new Power Mac G5 and rack-mountable Xserve. Optix works in concert with Sybase’s Adaptive Server Enterprise 12.5 to provide rock solid indexing and management of all types of enterprise documents. Mindwrap’s existing native Mac OS X client works perfectly with the new server, allowing a 100% Apple system implementation at the workgroup, department, or enterprise level.
“The combination of Mac OS X Server, the powerful rack-mounted Xserve, and Xserve RAID with terabytes of storage makes Apple a natural platform choice for document management and workflow. We're very excited to be able to offer an all-Mac solution to our customers”, states Jim Small, Mindwrap’s President.
Delivered as a fully functional and highly integrated solution, Optix is typically much faster to deploy than complicated “toolkits” that require extensive and costly development. Installation and training times are usually measured in days instead of months. Optix empowers system administrators and end users with a rich set of easy-to-use tools to quickly create and deploy new, secure applications, document repositories, and automated business processes. Optional modules support web-based query, viewing, and workflow operations.
"Panther Server integrates leading open source and open standards software with easy-to-use management tools that make it easy to deploy popular open source solutions for Mac, Windows and Linux clients," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "Our powerful and secure line of server and storage solutions combined with Mindwrap's Optix version 6 create an ideal and easy to use document management and workflow solution.”
All Optix systems are fully cross-platform with support for the full line of Fujitsu high-speed document scanners at any Macintosh or Windows client. Optix workstations also feature image enhancement, form design and processing, barcode recognition, patch cards, and a full set of interactive tools for designing GUI-based indexing and query screens as well as complex workflow routes. In addition to images, the client can store and index any document or file found on the desktop. The Optix Mac client is fully scriptable using AppleScript, allowing users to easily customize its operation and integrate it with third party applications such as OCR.
