Goodbye documents, hello data! With readers and researchers from the smartphone generation increasingly becoming accustomed to slick, efficient and personalised online experiences, how as a traditional academic publisher do you ensure you give them the customer experience they expect?  You must become data driven to stay relevant and competitive.

 

Sam Herbert, co-founder of publishing technology firm 67 Bricks, looks at how forward thinking publishers are reinventing themselves from top to bottom, and will talk through case studies and examples of best practice from across our industry.  Sam will examine the journey from providing traditional documents to providing data and knowledge as well as outlining the business drivers and the key emerging technologies that can help transform user experiences and increase ROI.  As publishers we already have a wealth of valuable content and data, this data is at the heart of everything a publisher does. Increasing your data maturity can fuel innovation and power the transformed products and services that customers will demand going forward.  So, where are you on the path to data maturity? And  how do you store, manage enrich and deliver this data to best advantage going forward? 

 

Two key outcomes that the audience will take away

1 A sound understanding of the importance of becoming data driven and how an organisation should begin to evaluate its maturity

2 Case study examples of how they might start to manage, enrich and deliver data better
