calls itself an "end-to-end online Web development environment and
content management platform" and said its service has been used to
develop sites for companies like Comcast SportsNet, Bicoastal Media and
Broadcast Company of the Americas Platformic
says an unusual aspect is that users can create layouts "visually" and
manage content from a browser quickly while maintaining look, feel and
design integrity. It said Webmasters do not have to enter Photoshop
files into Dreamweaver, FTP content to a site and enter code or rebuild
the same elements repeatedly on every page. "Platformic takes flattened
Photoshop files directly; Dreamweaver or other Web development software
is not required. Programmatic elements of the Web site are made by
pointing and clicking to add any of the dozens of 'tools' included with
the enterprise edition." Users, the company says, can update sites or
change their entire look in minutes with no downtime.
