RSuite CMS, a content management system for publishers, will exhibit at the Association of Educational Publishers’ Content in Context Conference (CIC) from June 2-5 in Washington, D.C. CIC aims to present a range of informative and practical sessions that address all issues relating to the development and distribution of high-quality learning resources.
“RSuite CMS provides an ideal foundation for the educational publishing community,” stated David Saracco, vice president of business development at RSuite CMS. "RSuite CMS provides a searchable repository to store all content and assets, implements an XML publishing workflow, manages the ever increasing amount of learning objects and, of course, includes metadata tagging, especially in light of this year’s AEP’s LRMI initiative.” RSuite CMS is used by Macmillan Higher Education, Oxford University Press, Human Kinetics, and others.
The AEP provides information, training, and outreach to help its members navigate the global realities of today's educational resource industry. Through its services, events, and initiatives, AEP facilitates communication among key interest groups including educators, policy makers, businesses, educational foundations and associations, and the education media.

XML is the foundation that enables multichannel publishing for publishers and media companies, but authors, editors, and reviewers have struggled to work with it effectively. At last, the tools and technology have caught up. Today organizations can choose whether they want XML-first, XML-early, or XML-late workflows, and even whether they want the XML hidden from their users altogether. Christopher Hill, vice president of product management, recently spoke at the MarkLogic World conference and demonstrated RSuite CMS, the industry’s first enterprise content management system powered by MarkLogic. In this presentation he details the benefits of XML-first, XML-early, and XML-hidden workflows in various publishing scenarios from leading publishing organizations using RSuite CMS.

Content management and digital asset management have traditionally been approached as distinct operations. There was limited interaction between content and assets during editorial development mostly coming together as print layouts were created and finalized. Workflows and tools were developed to address the separate requirements around the two components. However, the emergence of digital publishing has greatly increased options around how and what to publish. No longer are publishers constrained to print deliverables. New hardware devices, Internet applications, social media sites, and communication opportunities offer rich opportunities for publishers to use content in a variety of new ways. To take full advantage of this, publishers need to adjust the tools and techniques employed to manage content.
What is needed is a platform in which publishers can manage traditional assets (e.g., .jpg, .gif,.mov, .mp4, .mp3, etc.) to coexist with what was traditionally content (e.g., Word, XML, PDF, etc.). This platform should house both items natively. This becomes a strategic content hub that can be deployed either as a replacement for or as a layer over the existing tools and workflows that may still be required to support existing publishing channels. However, such an approach requires unique characteristics not seen in traditional CMS or DAM systems.

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.
Download our free white paper, "Content Digitization Strategy 101" and understand the following concepts, which must be part of any content management and publishing plan:
How you develop content that has a high digital readiness factor
Strategies for reclaiming content that does not have a high digital readiness factor
Planning to upgrade legacy content that is not digital into digital readiness
How you manage, store, and distribute your digital ready content
How do you maintain a focus on business value as a guide to all these activities
RSuite CMS, a content management system for publishers, will exhibit at Henry Stewart DAM NY 2013 Conference from May 2 to 3. Produced by Henry Stewart Events, DAM NY 2013 is the place for everyone involved in the process of managing digital media. 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.

Stresses on the educational publishing industry are profound. While the challenges of core curriculum requirements and state mandates have been part of the equation for many years, new expectations are adding to the pressures:
- Textbook pricing
- Flash-to-HTML5 conversion
- Exponential increase in asset management
- iBooks 2
All these factors have escalated the need to manage and organize content in a structured and strategic manner.
On April 25 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, join Chad Crume, director of content systems at Macmillan Higher Education and David Saracco, vice president of business development at RSI Content Solutions as they discuss the evolving educational publishing landscape and explore how a strategic approach to content management can serve educational publishers now and into the future.
