Dortmund/Hannover, March 06, 2012 – On Tuesday, the Vice-President of the European Commission with responsibility for the Digital Agenda for Europe, Neelie Kroes, visited the stand of e-Spirit AG, producer of the content management system (CMS) FirstSpirit. At the stand Ms Kroes watched a live demo of the high-end CMS, whose outstanding properties are easy integration of best-of-breed technologies and enterprise portals. The EU Vice-President was particularly interested in the FirstSpirit AppCenter, with which virtually any web and desktop application can be quickly and easily integrated into the CMS, regardless of whether online image databases, geolocation, video technology, e-mail and web analysis services or office documents such as Google Docs for joint editing. “This integratability, unique in the market, enables companies to use cloud services intelligently and efficiently on a central interface”, said Jörn Bodemann, CEO of e-Spirit AG. “We are pleased that the reputation of FirstSpirit as an outstanding content Integration Platform has reached Brussels.” Apart from e-Spirit, only a few selected firms were scheduled to be visited by the EU Vice-President.
