How ElasticWCM Works
ElasticWCM is a unique combination of on-premises software and cloud-based services allowing clients to augment existing systems with advanced content management functionality. There is no complicated installation procedure, no programming, and no steep learning curve.
Content Controls and Page Toolbar
Editable content like header, picture, or rich HTML text can be displayed on any ASP.NET web page by an ElasticWCM Content Control. There are multiple types of content controls serving different types of content and providing different functionality. Most widely used are StringField, ImageField, and HtmlField controls.
ElasticWCM content controls do not require any programming. Just drag and drop them on an ASP.NET page and configure property values.
There is one special ElasticWCM control - Page Toolbar - that must be present on any page holding Content Controls. Page Toolbar is a set of buttons providing authorized users with a way to perform content management. Behind the scenes it also conducts all communications with the cloud-based ElasticWCM Content Database.
Cloud-based service allows you to outsource most of the complexity to the redundant cloud environment and reduce impact on your internal systems.
ElasticWCM service consists of a Content Database holding the data, sophisticated content editing system, and Account Dashboard.
ElasticWCM promotes hybrid approach to cloud computing. It allows clients to deploy local Content Store providing fallback functionality to ensure resilience against network or cloud related outages.
ElasticWCM can be used with most systems based on Microsoft ASP.NET technology. You can easily try it right now by adding ElasticWCM to any page of your existing web site.
