CMS for Publishers | RSuite User Conference Spotlight: Print and Digital Revenue

Posted by Marianne Calihanna on Aug 30, 2012 4:16:00 PM

Strategic content management and revenue growth

In 2012 the rules changed. Organizations that implement a strategic content management initiative are the ones who see digital revenue exceed print. By now publishers understand that managing content in one central location is the starting point to do all sorts of interesting things---automated delivery to third-party aggregators, ebook distribution channels, unbundling of journal articles.

You can’t get to the wonderful world of apps or a single-source workflow without a CMS infrastructure in place. In this panel discussion, led by John Prabhu from SPi Global, CIOs from two organizations will detail how a strategic CMS has led them to discover, produce, and market new products that increase their bottom line.

Truth About DIY Content Management and Content Conversion

Posted by Marianne Calihanna on Aug 24, 2012 2:58:00 PM

Truth about DIY CMS and ConversionWhile using internal resources to develop a homegrown content management tool or convert your backlist to XML sounds like a cost-effective approach, the reality is that most IT projects fail. Focussing internal IT resources on experimenting with new technologies and applications (R&D), vendor selection, and vendor management is the trend most publishers are following. Capitalizing on external resources can increase time to market, offer scalability and expertise, provide consistency and quality, and ultimately improve your ROI.

Join RSI Content Solutions and Data Conversion Laboratory for the latest webinar in the Reality Check Series:

CMS for Publishers | RSuite User Conference Spotlight: DITA for Publishers

Posted by Sarah Silveri on Aug 14, 2012 8:46:00 AM

At the 2012 RSuite User Conference on September 20th, attendees will hear how the following people are using the powerful combination of RSuite CMS and DITA.

Publishing standards are intended to streamline data interchange and make the lives of publishers easier. But there are so many standards (and standards for standards) that it’s hard to keep track of what’s important, which standards are emerging, and the usefulness to an organization. Chet Ensign, director of standards at OASIS will speak to the array of publishing standards in use today and zero in on one standard that is helping publishers transform structured content to designed content.

RSuite CMS and the open source DITA for Publishers project (based on the DITA standard) streamlines the creation and production of content to multi-channel publishing formats, including InDesign, variable XHTML, PDF, EPUB, and MOBI.

Hear how Human Kinetics Publishers and Macmillan Higher Education are using this powerful combination: RSuite CMS and DITA.

Free White Paper for Publishers: Increase Your Revenue with Strategic Content Management

Posted by Marianne Calihanna on Aug 7, 2012 12:58:00 PM

Strategic Content ManagementAccording to a Pew Internet and American Life study, the number of adults who own tablets nearly doubled between mid-December 2011 and early January 2012, jumping from 10% to 19%. Coincidentally, according to the same study, the number of adults owning e-book readers also doubled from 10% to 19% in the same period, and the number of adults owning at least one of those devices leapt from 18% to 29%. There is simply no denying it—we find ourselves in the midst of a fundamental change in the way information is presented and consumed across all sectors of publishing.

From trade to children’s books, from STM to legal, from education to association publishing, the very rules of how we do what we do are being rewritten (and likely being read on a PDF or EPUB). And the rewriting of these rules is happening so quickly—to an industry that’s done things more or less the same way for centuries—that lots of publishers are struggling as their print revenues shrink faster than they can grow digital revenue.

In this free white paper you'll learn how to manage and refine your content—then, sell it quickly, efficiently, and in more forms than you ever imagined possible.
