The Content Liberation Movement

The Content Liberation Movement

05/31/2018, 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

Location: 1E16

Even well into the digital age, publishers have persisted in maintaining processes that confine their businesses to a specific format (usually, the book) and to a single business model. Forward-thinking editors today demand freedom to reuse and repurpose content in innovative, high value ways, especially on mobile devices. Content management systems, though, aren’t fast enough at identifying assets and don’t go far enough when assembling new products. A panel discussion will identify the digital transformation accelerators that can help editors and executives break down the barriers.
Speakers: Renee Swank, Vice President, Ixxus (CCC subsidiary); Max Riggsbee, co-founder, Gadget Software; Ankur Laroia, Leader – Solutions Strategy, Alfresco.
Audience: Digital product development managers; senior editorial staff; digital curriculum developers and editors
Learning Objectives: Attendees will learn how to manage more effectively the full lifecycle of book and related content from editorial through publication, and beyond.
