While the traditional publishing process is under immense pressure to contain costs; increase flexibility; and reduce time to market, the expanding digital arena holds the promise for efficient real-time delivery, zero returns and access to both niche and global markets. How then should a publisher implement production workflows that deliver efficiencies to traditional processes while also satisfying the growing demand for dynamic, digital content? Through its partnership with Mark Logic, codeMantra has bridged the gap between traditional publishing processes and the dynamic demands of a growing digital marketplace.
codeMantra has developed a Custom Publishing Module within its collectionPoint™ platform using XML and the MarkLogic Server. This fortified server platform combines the power of XQuery and XML dBase technologies with traditional PDF and word archives to better manage, access, transform, distribute and serve content to on-demand consumers. Through either traditional distribution channels or a customer facing portal supported by collectionPoint™, this powerful set of capabilities will enable publishers to dynamically deliver content in any format, and to any device while also improving the accessibility and discoverability of copy-protected content.
In this session, you will have the opportunity to preview the collectionPoint Custom Publishing Module and learn how to leverage these tools to meet the ever-changing requirements for dynamic content delivery.
