Legacy is a Four-Letter Word: Getting Past Embedded Technology and Embracing a Service-Oriented Architecture

Published on

“Publishing in the Cloud” just sounds cool, doesn’t it? There are so many options for SaaS implementations within a publishing operation of ANY size and at a fraction of the cost of many enterprise systems, migrating to the cloud seems like a no-brainer – especially for small and mid-size publishers. No matter your size however (even if you’re a one-man show), change is never easy and cost is only one consideration when making a systems-oriented transition. In this session, Michael Covington, Director of Digital Content, David C Cook, will quickly walk you through the challenges, pitfalls, benefits and opportunities of adopting cloud-based business processes as a small to mid-size publisher.

This session will help publishers better understand why and when cloud-based solutions make sense (and when they might not) for small to mid-size publishers.
