Below are some of the challenges the publishing and media industry is facing.
  • New and evolving communication channels are changing the ways that content is developed, delivered, and consumed.
  • The increasingly blurry boundary between "authorship" and "audienceship" means greater difficulty for publishers to assert a space between the two, while remaining profitable.
  • A shortened content life cycle, due to the changing behavior of audiences, requires more collaboration in content generation and delivery.
  • The massive volume and accelerating speed of information accumulation make it more difficult to manage content efficiently.
  • Increasing demands on customized content require better capabilities for content search, reuse, and configuration.
