    3131With Cinnamon's highly flexible interfaces and customization options, applications can be realized that are hardly possible with more specialized systems. Just a few real-life examples:
    3232* One customer integrated Cinnamon with a high-end PDF publishing engine generating ready-to-print PDFs with financial / investment content. Cinnamon is hidden under an easy-to-use web interface, only providing the functions needed by the users. The end customer, a group of banks in Switzerland, upload investment data as Microsoft Word and Excel files, and receive downloadable PDFs. The system uses Cinnamon's Calculatrix module, a configurable content analysis and processing framework. Calculatrix converts number and data formats to the three main languages spoken in Switzerland, creates diagrams from tables and checks for plausible values.
    33 * Another customer started using Cinnamon as a DITA CCMS. Since Cinnamon, even with it's commercial add-ons, has no user-based licenses, quickly took more and more users from other departments into the system, providing and consuming data of any types. In 2011, when the project started, there were perhaps five technical writers, in the meantime, there are ca. 200 users in three countries, storing data like project documentation, software packages up to 1 GB in size and configuration data used in projects. The customer's staff started developing their own Cinnamon integrations using the powerful API. To manage the large number of users, LDAP integration with Active Directory is used, and to speed up data transfer between the sites, there is a content cache in place. Both are standard, commercially available extensions for Cinnamon.
