The result is an editorial system with a vastly expanded editorial environment, designed specifically around the journalistic process and the covering of news stories and with features to plan, cre­ ate, manage and deliver content for any number of media. solid base At the heart of CCI NewsGate is a powerful XML database. Based on technology from Oracle, the XML Database provides a central repository for secure storage and management of vast amounts of content and related material and files. open to proprietary systems CCI NewsGate is built on an integration architecture that is both open and scalable that can harness the valuable resources of even the smallest news organization. The open architecture enables CCI NewsGate to keep pace with the rapidly changing technology and new publication channels are quickly added to the existing story creation and planning procedures. 8 CCI NewsGate CCI NewsGate 9
