Introducing Rex iServer
New name, new attitude and enterprise capability

"Our vision for Rex has always included the move to an open, scalable component-based architecture that will offer
enhanced performance, flexibility and reliability."
Rex iServer will incorporate the best of RexComposer and RexConductor, including user-friendly content management and
intranet development tools. However, it will also be so much more, giving customers the ability to manage multiple
intranet, extranet and internet sites from one place and acting as a key information delivery system across the

In addition, Rex iServer's open .NET-based architecture will enable straightforward integration with existing
applications and infrastructure, and provide an ideal framework for bespoke application development where customers
require specialist functionality.
