Content Imperative: Paper publications alone do not answer the immediate, highly specialized, international needs of the government. An XML-tagged “subdoc” publishing system promised to liberate critical information from hundreds of thousands of documents and make it available anywhere, anytime, in any electronic format.
To this end, in 2005 a large branch of the U.S. Government sought out OBS as a subcontractor to research, organize, and conduct a full day of high-level briefings on the state of online publishing in the private sector. We first conducted a needs analysis, and after three months of research, identified industry leaders to offer our Government client a productive day of “nontechnical” presentations showing how private industry had advanced online publishing in the previous 13 years. Topics included state-of-the-art search engine development, print-on-demand capabilities, metadata strategies, and the latest on standards-based taxonomies, as well as profiling and security technologies.ShareThis
