Is Your Content Experiencing an Identity Crisis?: Addressing the Pain Points of Classification

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The publishing Industry is experiencing an exponential growth in new product offerings. With each new product, we are seeing a constant struggle in meeting the content classification requirements set forth both internally by the publisher, as well as those needed by external distributors. How can this information management become a functional, consistent, and efficient system, blending both the publisher’s internal needs as well as the needs of the users?

Forming a strong content strategy plan is crucial for gaining as much exposure as possible. Striving to improve usability of the content, while also creating a cutting-edge search functionality and improved “findability”, should be the key initiatives of every plan.

This discussion strives to address some of the key issues in content classification and management.
