Published on

Join Acquia, and Phase2 Technology as we present OpenPublish, a Drupal Solution for the publishing industry.

OpenPublish provides a solution for publishers struggling to keep up with rapidly expanding technology and user expectations. Features support everything from basic news coverage needs to Web 2.0 trends, social publishing and topic hubs. OpenPublish has a starting kit of modules and configurations that support the needs of online publishing. Each component bundled in the distribution is well supported, documented and modularly designed according to Drupal's architecture. OpenPublish now comes bundled with Aqcuia's full range of managed support and hosting services providing a one vendor solution for your web publishing needs.

Developed by Phase2 Technology with the support of Thomson Reuters, OpenPublish is designed to leverage Drupal as a social publishing platform, integrate semantic web technologies, and incorporate best practices from other publishing sites. OpenPublish features a semantic metadata engine that uses Thomson Reuter's Calais Web Service to provide contextual metadata.

Attendees will:
- Understand how OpenPublish can help create new news products for easy monetization with only a few clicks.
- Learn how to speed deployment of any publishing site
- Watch a demonstration of Open Publish administrative back-end

  12. 12. About Phase2 <ul><li>Who: Web application development services using open source technologies including Drupal . </li></ul><ul><li>What: CMS , online publishing systems, API & open data integration, community applications, semantic web and custom application development. </li></ul><ul><li>Where: online publishing , media, public policy, advocacy and open government clients </li></ul>
  13. 13. Why Publishers Hate CMS <ul><li>Too many options - none of them work for their needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Commercial solutions are expensive, complex to implement and inflexible </li></ul><ul><li>Open source CMS platforms are hard to figure out, support, maintain, customize </li></ul><ul><li>Homegrown solutions are untested, un-exercised, repetitive, costly and inflexibly </li></ul><ul><li>CMS expertise is hard to find and expensive to either contract or hire in house </li></ul><ul><li>Projects often miss the mark </li></ul><ul><li>Publishers need an open source “turn-key” solution that has the latest tools ready to go. </li></ul><ul><li>Phase2 and the Calais team are working on a way to make all of this MUCH simpler using Drupal. </li></ul>
  14. 14. What Publishers Say They Want Most <ul><li>Drive traffic and attract new readers </li></ul><ul><li>Improve registration / conversion </li></ul><ul><li>Encourage user engagement / community participation </li></ul><ul><li>Discover new ways to monetize contentHave the flexibility to rapidly launch new products </li></ul><ul><li>Improve staff and operational efficiencyStandardize technology on lower cost/open source </li></ul>
  15. 15. What Are Drupal Distributions? <ul><li>Distributions are products made from (and are just) Drupal </li></ul><ul><li>They provide open-source alternatives to proprietary solutions </li></ul><ul><li>End-users need total solutions, not just tools they have to piece together themselves </li></ul><ul><li>Developers don’t want to repeat their work </li></ul><ul><li>Most organizations have neither the time nor the resources to build custom systems nor re-invent implementations </li></ul><ul><li>Drupal is leading the way on distributions because of its flexibility as a platform and not just a CMS </li></ul>
  16. 16. Something Unique for Publishers Reduced set-up/platform costs + Best of Drupal + Best practices from real world + Innovation in functionality + Semantic web capabilities = Better CMS solution (...not just cheaper)
