SD-X Content Management Suite
The SD-X solution includes a suite of Web and desktop tools for management and distribution of libraries of applications and content for SD-X pens.
Web services are available to organize your SD-X applications, content on your Web platform, and make application and content available under controlled conditions to your users. The SD-X content management system is designed for easy integration with existing Web sites and provides features for easy deployment and maintenance of SD-X applications using your existing infrastructure.
A desktop application is available to manage access to available Web libraries of SD-X applications and content as well as those that reside on the users' SD-X pens. Users can select available applications and content from the Web for download to their pen when it is connected to their desktop via USB. Applications and content on the pen can be updated with new releases automatically or, if appropriate, at the user's discretion. The desktop application is platform independent and runs on Windows® (XP, Vista), Mac® (Leopard), Linux®, and other operating environments.
The desktop and Web services framework provides an optional user logon procedure that may be invoked when the desktop application connects to your Web site and SD-X library services. SD-X Web services thus may know both the identity of the current user as well as the identity of the specific SD-X pen connected to the desktop application for the current session. These elements are available to your Web applications using familiar methods that enable your site to expose only information appropriate for each specific user and device.
Only a specific user and/or a specific SD-X device may make applications and content accessible. Transmissions between your Web site and users' desktops may be performed using secure methods. For further security, applications and content never persist on the user's desktop computer. Instead, they only physically reside on your Web site and/or your users' SD-X pens. Log-on and security features are optional and can be configured at the site level. A number of desktop options may be controlled at the site level, and individual users may further control a variety of personal desktop preferences.
