Jouve will present three customer cases in which our set of next-generation services are helping to transform the publishing industry. First, we will show how we are helping Apple, Barnes & Noble and many other customers and retailers get huge numbers of titles onto the iBooks platforms and Nook, and how we are helping publishers take advantage of Apple’s new, simple online conversion services offering. Next, we will present the composition services and technologies that have helped our customers develop new products faster while saving costs and developing new revenue streams. Finally, we will present a new strategy for full service in the education market, including providing project management, art, design, and tools for creation of born-digital products.

This session is sponsored by Jouve
