CSDB Hosting

Common Source Database for confidence in authoring

CONTACT US

In accordance with the S1000D specification, RCMT recommends gathering and managing all of your project data modules in a product-independent database (regardless of output: print or electronic) also known as a Common Source Database (CSDB) 

Standing up your own authoring system and CSDB can seem overwhelming when considering the long-term cost to purchase and maintain a system. If you’re unsure how long you will actually use/need a system/CSDB or do not have the infrastructure and IT personnel/know-how to install and maintain the system, let RCMT help you. We offer a hosting service that lets your personnel access a secure authoring system/CSDB behind our firewall using a web browser. We handle everything including ensuring safe secure encryption, updating software patches and upgrades, and backing up your data. 

The value of a CSDB is that it manages all types of data (i.e. descriptive, informational, process and procedural direction, graphics; photos, animations and illustrations.) Managing this data in a CSDB ensures the data is not duplicated. Single instances of the data can be leveraged, with confidence, infinitely throughout the database. Ensuring data is only updated in one location avoids potential data-conflicts and quality issues. 

Utilizing an SDL-sourced CSDB with an object-oriented architecture, RCMT currently manages content for several of the largest Defense and Aerospace companies in the world. We leverage this professional CSDB with a streamlined workflow, which minimizes the potential for data loss/corruption and ensures data integrity with legacy data available to track historical changes. We are comfortable working data exchanges between CSDBs and can assist your organization in doing the same. 

Unlock the power of the CSDB without the hassles of maintenance so you can focus on efficiently manage your content.
