Silicon Publishing Connects InDesign with Adobe Experience Manager

SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 28, 2015 — Today Silicon Publishing, the leading provider of database publishing solutions for Adobe InDesign, celebrated the five-year anniversary of its highly successful Silicon Connector for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) product, while announcing broadened integration with the company’s other products.

The foundation for today’s events was laid in 2010, when Silicon Publishing first tackled the challenge of bridging InDesign and AEM. During the past five years, Silicon Connector for AEM has developed a wide global following:

“Connector for AEM has been well-proven in the field. Feedback from thousands of users is continuously reaffirming the value found in bringing Adobe InDesign and AEM together.”

-- Max Dunn, Silicon Publishing CEO

Smart Integration for other Silicon Products

But that is only half of the Connector for AEM story. Dunn describes Silicon's engineering team as having built extensively upon the pioneering Connector technology, opening the door to much deeper linkage among AEM and the company’s other products, especially Silicon One, Silicon Designer and Silicon Paginator:

"We're very excited about this initiative - it will enable true multi-channel publishing from a single source, making content management work for both print and web, throughout our product line.”

AEM Assets

Based upon its web content management roots, AEM now offers a robust and increasingly powerful asset management capability, known as “AEM Assets.” Supporting any type of graphic asset, including those traditionally used for Web (such as JPG, PNG, and SVG), AEM manages those used for print (EPS and TIF) as well.

Making use of AEM’s powerful web content management capabilities (including its tight integration with the rest of the Adobe Marketing Cloud), Silicon’s goal is for asset & content management in print and multi-channel publishing to be fully optimized across its product line, in harmony with Adobe’s core offerings.

Multi-Channel Publishing

Organizations deploying AEM demand far more than mere streamlining of a DAM for InDesign. Those experiencing the power of web content management with out-of-the-box AEM today are asking Silicon whether AEM can be used in a similar way for print content, including content management offering finer-grained control over multiple channels.

The company’s CEO summarized Silicon’s answer to the market: “AEM was not built with multi-channel content as a priority, since it is more web-centric by default. In response, we are extending AEM to our other products, especially Silicon One and Silicon Paginator, thus enabling true, multi-channel / single-source publishing.
