  • Part of RTÉ Digital team - inspired by our changing audience needs “Open”, shared business model for content access, availability - on behalf of the national broadcasterConnected - FIAT/IFTA, IASA, PRESTO Centre, FOCAL International Our ambition – to collaborate with experts in the “big data” world tohelp our audience better navigate and discover national digital archivesenable better discovery, interacting with external digital online communities for new “storytelling” enhance our business processes Progress in partnerships through new collaboration-in area of skills and content, and investment sharing - building on our experience to date pan-EU, technology and media content providers
  • We create countless “stories” every year - millions of stories linking us to our past. Stories capture a moment in time linking us to who we are nowEach story - an individual piece of content, but they’re also bound together. A unity that enables a content strategy - that acts like the “nation,” old and new, giving shape to the whole endeavor from trusted data sources - RTÉ ArchivesThese “stories” were and are created by producers, authors and sources in multiple formats — a cherished image, an important interview, a rare document or a unique event captured on film… combined today with a leading mobile app, a viral video, a great television or radio segment.Creating real-time linkages is a way to describe a nation developing its content strategy.The scale and opportunity grows in real-time, dailyThere is a balance between control — keeping content linkages to a coherent idea, and enabling openness, sharing and new possibilities that accessible data enables — allowing content to be “available” and make its way around the internet with new technologies – being shared enhanced and altered along the way.It can be used because the content is at a standard that is good enough, valuable enough to be shared outside our own circle of influence.
  • Can there be a platform for a diverse content strategy ? The semantic web enables effortless linking of different parts of the story- both for our audiences and our business users Because some content is not “in focus ” right now it does not make it less valuable or low-quality. Innovation may come from a smaller percentage of content because of the context and linkages that adds more relevance or is more in-depth, to connect more deeply with a story that links to a segment or audience who engage with a story in a new way. We do not know what will inspire - the topics, problems and desires that become important emerge because of possibilities that reaches out to the edges or engages with a topic or story in an entirely new way.The audience might not be there yet or they might be right there with you. Until you put it out there - you don’t know.
  • The role of comprehensive meta data design excellence is NOT to behave like a ruthless editor of content or sources but an enabler of potential linkagesWe are not to judge where incremental ideas come from that get dispersed systematically across multiple channels of conversations today or in the futureWithout comprehensive data design excellence – structure, application and standards - the resources spent on improving and linking content into a real-time accessible environment will be wasted. To create this world of content linkages and access we have set out on a path of collaboration and partnership around a shared vision The skills and resources to create a metadata platform that is worthy of the valuable content we possess and worthy of our users and audience’s attention
