Publishing Technology Drives Digital Strategies

Alliances signed with three of China’s largest publishers

Publishing Technology, the largest provider of software and services to the publishing industry, today announced agreements with 10 new scholarly publishers, further strengthening its client portfolio and online collections.

In a series of recent signings, content from six academic publishers is now open to the ingentaconnect network of over 25,000 libraries, including James Nicholas Publishers, Paris Legal Publishers, the Institute of Noise Control Engineering, Science International Corporation, the Association for Perioperative Practice and Rosenberg & Sellier Editori.

Alliances have also been formed with several Chinese content providers to extend their reach outside of China, including three of the country's largest publishers. China Publishing Group, Guangdong Publishing Group, Hebei Publishing & Media Group and Qingdao Publishing Group-recently awarded the First Ranked Press in China and the National Key Cultural Export Enterprise honour by the government-will soon command access to an international audience of academics and researchers.

With significant upgrades and development of the platform's core technology currently underway and user testing of e-journal discovery, access and readership in progress, the ingentaconnect portal remains the largest and most comprehensive gateway to international content for the academic community.

George Lossius, Chief Executive Officer at Publishing Technology, said: "Global publishers are seeking new strategies and business models for capitalizing on evolving markets while the discovery, use and sharing habits of researchers, students and professionals is constantly changing. Many content providers, big and small, require an adaptable digital solution that reaches the four corners of the globe, without the need for substantial investment, and Publishing Technology is delighted to deliver this for them."

"I continue to be excited by our growing activity in and with China. We know there is an appetite for international content in China, and our own market research indicates a healthy demand for Chinese content in the USA. Many things are afoot in our industry and I'm looking forward to the discussions at this SSP." he concluded.

ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
