Webinar: Truth of Digital Content Transformation and Conversion

Posted by Sarah Silveri on Jan 14, 2013 2:56:00 PM

Truth of Digital Content Transformation






John Corkery and Michael Edson from DETI Group will be the panelists for our February 20 webinar entitled, Truth of Digital Content Transformation and Conversion. This webinar will be an hour long and will begin at 1:00pm.

Revenue from digital products is set to soar in 2013. A recent study from Pew Internet & American Life Project states that one-third of the US population 16 and older now owns an e-reader. Ownership of tablets and e-reading devices has grown from 18% in late 2011 to 33% in late 2012. For the publishing industry this means a sustainable strategy to support digital and print products is the only option. It’s imperative for publishers to support a workflow that automates content transformation to digital formats for all titles moving forward and develop consistent plans for conversion projects to better monetize backlist titles.

Join publishing consultants Mike Edson and John Corkery from DETI Group in this free webinar. Mike and John will present strategies they’ve helped publishers implement to ensure that an epub strategy is an ongoing success that meets customers’ expectations while increasing publishers’ bottom line. They will separate fact from fiction and answer all your questions around epub, ebook formats, content conversion, XML, and more.

In this webinar, we’ll reveal some interesting truths around quality control and provide tips that you can bring back to your office.

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:
