We recently reported that Day was cooking up some new infrastructure software. Day's new CRX (stands for "Content Repository Extreme") can now be test-ridden on the company's site. Don't look for a nice, user-friendly document management system. CRX is designed to be embedded in other applications, and the interfaces are all administrative.

The key to CRX's success will be other infrastructure vendors (especially BEA and Sun) OEM'ing the tool in their own solution and perhaps, one day, acquiring Day outright...
