Horizons aims to show dot-coms and regular businesses how to better manage their online content at this year's Gitex. Technologies on show include Horizons Knowledge Server, its flagship product, which is used to run Web sites as illustrious as Al Jazeera.Net.

Horizons also aims to make an impact with its hosted content management service, This one of a kind offering allows companies to outsource hosting of their Web sites to an ASP for an affordable price, saving them the overhead of having to do it for themselves.

“The tremendous success that Horizons achieved last year in signing up major clients and launching premier Arabic Web sites, powered by its technologies, was a clear indication that we are providing the right solutions at the right price, and that we are leading the efforts in the region in providing advanced tools for creating and managing Arabic content,” said Mohamad Takriti, chief executive officer, Horizons.

“Through our various branches in the region and our dedicated teams of highly-qualified professionals, we are able to help our clients in constructing large-scale, advanced Web sites with minimum technological worries.”

Horizons Knowledge Server apparently empowers Web site developers, giving them advanced tools for creating rich content, letting them collaborate using workflow functions, and allowing them to publish content across formats — HTML, XML and WAP. Developer can also create interactive community elements like discussion groups and live votes.

Seminars will take place at Horizons’ stand in the Microsoft Pavilion, on Sunday 14 at 2:10 and on Tuesday 16 at 12:30.
