Community-generated assets need curation and management in a new way. Have you updated your process for this new world?

  11. 11. Fantasy! Never in Our Lifetime! http://www.mediadecor.com/@nozurbina
  12. 12. Take-Aways~ Smart phones and tablets are the tip of the iceberg~ Users are connecting with content in new ways all the time – To connect with them and get their content, you need to be able to be where they are@nozurbina
  13. 13. Take-Aways~ You can’t keep up by converting content from format to format as they appear – Need to migrate to a neutral format – Content must be stored ready for any output/device~ Many organisations are still presenting content online/on mobile in PDF and in the print paradigm@nozurbina
  14. 14. A Lesson from Cloud ComputingCloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product... shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid)... over a network (typically the internet).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing@nozurbina
  15. 15. Service vs. Product (Deliverable)~ Content can be conceived of and delivered as a service – Content gets encapsulated in deliverables – Each deliverable is one view for one context, at one time. ~ One issue or update of a “Journal”, “Website”, “Magazine”, etc.. ~ e.g. News Providers that pipe content to sites, devices, and affiliates globally.@nozurbina
  16. 16. Content as a Service@nozurbina
  17. 17. Content as a Service@nozurbina
  18. 18. Content as a Service Requires~ Metadata-rich content, decent taxonomy~ Format neutral , not proprietary (DITA, XML)~ Repository of structured content modules~ Repository/Delivery platforms that support content queries via metadata~ Ability to re-cast content for a new context to create new value (Content Curation)~ Metric and analytics reporting – To help you decide what to reuse and pipe where@nozurbina
  19. 19. Content Curation~ Content curation is reusing content for new aims~ Sometimes it can be automated, sometimes can be hand-curated~ Considerations: – Is it modular? (References to old context, links, etc.) – Metadata - is it findable by the appropriate metadata in the new contex? – Is it still current/accurate at the point of reuse? – Is it editorially, stylistically, etc. appropriate in its new reuse context?@nozurbina
  20. 20. NOW YOU’RE READY FOR SOCIAL@nozurbina
  21. 21. Social Content Curation~ Making the best of social content involves the same steps and techniques – Research, engagement, listening, measurement – Plus: Curating user-generated content, metadata, folksonomies/taxonomies~ Social content can intermingle with commercial content, creating new deliverables@nozurbina
  22. 22. Lifecycle@nozurbinahttp://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Frog_lifecycle.jpg
  23. 23. Content Lifecycle HTTPS Web CMS CMS Content Server rd 3 party New! Favs New! Mobile Device TMS Embedded And@nozurbina “In-App”
  24. 24. Dangers~ If you build it, they will come~ Departmental silos~ New editorial, licensing and writing guidelines~ Taxonomy and Metadata systems~ Scoping~ Search fragmentation across systems~ Systems consolidation@nozurbina
  25. 25. Conclusion~ When user generated and brand content is: – properly structured – enriched with metadata – free from format~ it can be governed and curated across all formats together as an integrated whole@nozurbina
  26. 26. Conclusion~ If executed properly, this increases: – User engagement – Revenues – Brand value@nozurbina
