Building the Next Generation of Dynamic Content Delivery Systems

As more companies strive to build content delivery strategies for their organizations, it becomes important to understand the common characteristics of successful designs of these types of systems.

There are many vendors that position their products as solutions to part of the system design such as eBook creation or web delivery. However, there exists no turnkey solution that will handle the demands of every organization since system priorities vary greatly by company and industry. Consequently, managers face a difficult challenge when designing and implementing these types of systems. There are three basic areas that have to be considered when designing dynamic content delivery systems. Content creation involves building a single interface for authors, editors and reviewers that handles multiple authoring tools. Additionally, content management involves storing document components, separating their content and structure from any formatting information to optimize re-use and facilitate dynamic distribution. Lastly, content distribution involves designing multiple channels to deliver the content to users including personalized printed pages, ebooks, tablet applications and syndication engines. This session gives an overview of the architecture of a typical dynamic content delivery systems. From document creation and workflow control to data storage and online distribution, each structural component will be analyzed.

This presentation considers the interplay among these areas:

  • Content creation - Building a single interface that handles multiple authoring tools for authors, editors and reviewers
  • Content management - Storing document components to separate content from structure, maximize re-use and ease dynamic distribution
  • Content distribution - Developing multiple channels to deliver content and meet the needs of different audiences

 

The primary audience for this presentation is IT managers or architects who are tasked with the responsibility of building an internal publishing system that will support multiple distribution channels.
