Content Digitization Strategy 101

Posted by Marianne Calihanna on Apr 29, 2013 1:46:00 PM

RSuite CMS: Digitize your content, transform your organization

Half of all Americans now own some sort of smartphone or tablet device, according to a recent Pew Research initiative. This is roughly similar to the number of Americans who own laptop computers, but the transition has occurred in over very few years, and these numbers are expected to double in the coming years. This trend is largely what is driving most activity in the content business today. The ability to present meaningful content where and when it is requested and at a price that is acceptable is a major challenge. It is becoming increasingly clear that content that is not digitized is not as valuable as content that is.

Digitization has become a necessity for content driven businesses. Many publishers have developed digitization strategies mainly as a reaction to market trends. Some publishers have adopted a “wait and see” mindset betting that technology will improve and that prices will come down. This may have been a good strategy in the early adoption era. However, technology and software have evolved, and the pricing for both technology and offshore services are about as low as they are going to get.   Digitizing your content is one of the necessary costs of admission to be able to play in today's marketplace.

The conference is dedicated to digital asset management from the user’s perspective.

Christopher Hill, vice president of product development at RSuite CMS, will speak on the technology track about the unification of assets and content. “Artificial distinctions between ‘content’ and ‘assets’ are blurring,” explained Christopher. “Images, variants, multimedia files—all of these objects are as important as original content. A manageable, transformable, strategic asset repository is vital for agility in the digital space.”

Christopher Hill will demonstrate how the RSuite CMS is used by some of the world’s leading publishers to manage assets as well as corresponding metadata and provides a powerful workflow engine to streamline production of digital media.
