A new generation of software for a new generation of print  to be demonstrated at Hall 16/A40 and Hall 7a/D01

DALIM SOFTWARE (www.dalim.com), a leading provider of software solutions for creating, producing, and managing print and digital content, will be showcasing its next-generation platform, comprising the renowned DALIM ES and DALIM TWIST products, at drupa 2024, stands Hall 16/A40 and Hall 7a/D01, demonstrating how businesses can streamline their production operations for enhanced efficiency and scalability.

As the demand for content continues to skyrocket across various formats and channels, businesses are facing unprecedented challenges in scaling their operations to meet these growing needs. Many organizations are finding that their existing in-house developed solutions and legacy systems are limiting their ability to expand their offerings and scale production effectively. This realization has led to a critical evaluation of their technology investments, with a focus on finding versatile, scalable solutions that can be easily integrated and built upon.

In this evolving landscape, the 'buy vs. build' debate has taken centre stage, with integration capabilities and platform consolidation becoming more crucial than ever. Companies are recognizing the need for highly flexible solutions that offer an intuitive user experience and powerful automation capabilities, allowing them to focus on their core business offerings while expanding their capabilities. DALIM ES and DALIM TWIST address these challenges head-on, providing a re-invented content lifecycle production platform with unlimited scalability, empowering businesses to meet the demands of the digital revolution in both print and online.

The new software is built on a unique platform embracing what DALIM SOFTWARE calls its future-proof MACH architecture:

  • Micro-services: for flexibility, and optimized up and down scalability
  • API-first: enabling seamless integration of any platform component with existing systems
  • Cloud native: for 24/7 access from anywhere under proven security and smart auto-scaling, without managing a complex IT infrastructure
  • Headless: for advanced users who can build their own tailored applications and UX/UI

While new print applications and device types continue to emerge and legacy print systems consolidate, the world of print production is evolving rapidly. Workflow solutions must now catch up with hardware advancements, a reversal of the previous challenge. By leveraging the MACH framework, DALIM SOFTWARE's platform can handle any volume while maintaining high-quality output, ensuring process efficiency, and optimizing resources in a faster, better, and smarter way. The platform is designed to meet the demands of the next generation of production obstacles, supporting businesses in their quest to stay ahead in an ever-changing landscape.

"Print providers, agencies, and brands face daily challenges with high volume and diverse content demands. Distributed teams and customers require solutions that enable work from anywhere. DALIM SOFTWARE's platform focuses on solving any challenge, present or future," states Tim D'Elia, Director of Product Strategy. "Our customizable, scalable technology automates and streamlines tasks, allowing teams to focus on their strengths while workflow ensures error-free media. DALIM ES and DALIM TWIST, working together in our next-generation platform, can be applied to any process, improving operational performance, enabling scaling, and delivering the best quality."
