Produce & Publish Cloud Services

Produce & Publish facilitates transparent access to data and resources that are stored in the public or private cloud.

All Produce & Publish components will shortly be "cloud-ready". We have a developed a unique abstraction layer for file access which permits an unmodified application to access either the data in a local data system or data in the cloud.

Connection to the relevant cloud services generally takes place via a simple configuration process.  Once this is complete, a Produce & Publish-based application can effectively provide access to any database the user desires, provided that the respective access rights permit it.

Content to be converted can be prepared by authors in e.g. Dropbox. Generated PDF files or e-books can be made available on Google Drive or within the framework of a private cloud (e.g. OwnCloud).

Wir are using Plone in our school e.g. for the generation of school reports and protocols of class conference and have been searching for reliable solution for generating forms and reports. The product SmartPrintNG (now "Produce & Publish") is very suitable for our purposes due its flexiable configuration options. Andreas Jung gave a hands-on-training and communicate the relevant know-how in order to work effectively with SmartPrintNG (even for non-technical people like teachers).
