RSuite CMS User Conference Recap

Posted by Marianne Calihanna on Sep 24, 2012 3:53:00 PM

Last Thursday, publishing professionals met in Philadelphia for the 6th annual RSuite CMS User Conference. Brian Howard from Book Business highlighted a number of the key takeaways, including the following:

In Lisa Bos’ talk on metadata, she used the example of Oxford University Press, whose Oxford Index provides customers tools to drill deep for the content they’re seeking. She noted that OUP captures “twenties of items of metadata for each product,” clarifying that by product she didn’t mean books, but chapters of books. The richer your metadata, the more opportunities there are for your customers to find your products.

On the issue of what publishers’ products are called in the digital age, Evan Owens of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) said: “We’re an ‘article’ publisher; ‘issues’ are an artifact of the past. It’s article first.” Discussing the benefits of implementing a strategic CMS, AIP’s Owens noted that implementing RSuite was “an opportunity to step back, clear the deck and think about what we want to achieve.” He noted that early adopters — AIP was online early — can get in a rut, and that like lots of early Internet adopters, “everything was in a file system and there wasn’t an infrastructure to manage things.” As with publishers using file systems, there was “no version control; anyone in the building could change a file at any time, and I couldn’t do anything about it.” Implementing a CMS allowed AIP to protect its most valuable asset.

The complete review is available here.

Are STM and Educational Publishers Resisting Flipboard?

Posted by Marianne Calihanna on Sep 6, 2012 4:48:00 PM

Flipboard for publishersI am a fan of Flipboard.

I use it for personal news consumption and was thrilled when The New York Times became available. I still find myself flipping through content that I read (and subscribe to!) in print. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Flipboard has 21 publications that it is working with along with many tech websites, blogs, and Twitter feeds.

Flipboard is making a push to reach out to publishers and advertisers. The company hired five "evangelists" to make its case to publishers who are looking for new digital revenue sources (and who isn't btw?!).

I see Flipboard as a great venue for STM and educational publishers to tap into new revenue and I wonder why I don't see these types of publishers on Flipboard yet. Granted the company is evolving its publisher pitch. Digiday had a great article on this and addresses some concerns that publishers may have.

If you're an STM or educational publisher, I'm interested to hear your thoughts. Share your comments, concerns, opinions.

CMS for Publishers | RSuite User Conference Spotlight: Keynote Speaker Announced

Posted by Sarah Silveri on Sep 5, 2012 2:03:00 PM

John Blossom, 2012 RSuite User Conference Keynote SpeakerKeynote Presentation:
Curation, Collaboration, Cross-Platform, Cloud: Profiting From the "Four C's" of The Second Web

Publishers continue to express their prime value points through electronic media, but not always with the profit margins that they would have hoped to retain. Tools such as text analytics, the Flipboard news-viewing application and highly successful publishing business models pioneered by O'Reilly Media put pressure on publishers to be ready to innovate in both how content is produced and when and how it can be experienced for maximum value.


Veteran content industry analyst John Blossom, President of Shore Communications Inc., outlines the cutting edge of content technologies that he has defined as "The Second Web" and how they are yet again redefining successful models for high-margin publishing businesses.
