  21. 21. Next Generation Digital Books Books as Stand alone AppsWhen a book is produced as an app all the features that might need to appear in an ebook reader app need to be developed specific to that App. This has the advantage of flexibility as features are not limited to the usual set of ebook features. Multimedia can be embedded in creativeways that are not limited by what an ebook reader app may or may not support.
  22. 22. Next Generation Digital Books Books as Stand alone AppsThe downside of all this is cost and effort. Instead of the couple of hundred dollars spent producing an ebook file, an ebook app is more likely to set you back a couple of thousand – per platform.
  23. 23. Next Generation Digital Books Books as Stand alone Apps If you produce a book as an app then you may have to keep producing the book as an app for years to come, upgrading for new platforms and new versions ofplatforms. Ebook reader apps will also have this problem,but the upgrades are the responsibility of the reader app developer, not the publishers of the book files.

  30. 30. Next Generation Digital BooksChallenges for the production processes.Digitizing the publishing “backlist” (books already published) Changing production processes to produce the “forward list” (books yet to be published).
  31. 31. Next Generation Digital Books Backlist DigitizationMany publishers have been working on backlistdigitization for years. However, most concentrated onconverting to PDF ebooks, being the format the mainebook distributors were demanding.As a result, most books now exist as PDFs, even if theyare only sitting in publishers’ archives.
  32. 32. Next Generation Digital Books Backlist DigitizationVery few publishers digitized the backlist as ePub.Most publishers are even less ready for the newer trendto produce a book as a stand-alone software “app”.
  33. 33. Next Generation Digital Books Front List DigitizationAt some point, publishers must decide to stop producingbooks using their traditional processes, and beginproducing the forward list in the new formats.This will introduce some major changes in the Industry..
  34. 34. Next Generation Digital Books Front list Digitization•re-engineering production processes•re-training staff in new production methods•laying off some production staff•hiring new staff (from IT rather than publishing backgrounds)•outsourcing some or all book production
