Session Details

Topic: Juxtaposing Traditional and Social Content
Date: April 28, 2011
Time: 10:30-11:30, PST
Speaker: Kiran Karadi, Principal Strategist, iEngage, Infosys Technologies

Session Description

If they are to ride the Social Web wave, publishers’ core IT systems should expand to include:

  • Social content such as blogs, micro-blogs, comments on articles, discussion forums and polls.
  • Building communities, mini social networks, geo-location, activity streams, etc.

An integrated platform should:

  • Elevate social content to first class citizenship in the realm of content management and editorial functionality — search, categorization, taxonomy, semantics. In effect, social content should be included in relevance ranking, added as part of news feeds, include context sensitivity such as geo-location features, related content features, etc.
  • Put relevant content, both traditional and social, at the fingertips of like-minded communities, and thus build professional networks centered around content.

The iEngage and MarkLogic integration is a research/ pilot effort to build a platform, which will provide a Software as a Service (SaaS)-based environment for content publishers to create social webs, and create value-added offerings by integrating traditional and social content. The platform will enable publishers to switch from "content we provide" to "content the community wants".
