Innovative content management solutions for non-traditional publishers were canvassed when Eidosmedia customers got together in a second virtual event.
Two online sessions featured case studies and new developments in architecture and interface technology.
Chief marketing officer Massimo Barsotti said the quality of the contributions and a record number of attendees "made this one of our most successful community meetings".
Giovanni Buttitta told how Italian power-grid management company Terna had built a cloud-based digital content-services platform to streamline the work of its corporate communications teams, while UEFA IT business solutions manager Stefano Strignano discussed the daily challenges of delivering a live match experience using digital technology in seven languages. The organisation uses a cloud-based platform, together with the Swing mobile workspace and live-blogging app, to feed live news and media to football fans and journalists throughout Europe.
With cloud migration increasingly being used to improve performance and flexibility of content services operations, Niall Duffy, EMEA industry verticals lead at AWS looked at how the evolution of digital media and the quest for user engagement was being enabled by cloud-based technologies, from AI and data analytics to agile media management.
Cloud deployment is now a major element in the managed-services options Eidosmedia presented during the meeting, ranging from remote management of on-premise installations to full cloud-hosted SaaS solutions.
With release 8.0 of Windows Prime workspace marking a radical change in the Méthode client-server architecture, a detailed presentation by chief technology officer Cristiano Meda quantified latency reductions and performance improvements of the new release in handling different types of editorial object.
And with Eidosmedia's mobile app, Swing fast approaching feature parity with its Windows counterpart, digital solutions product manager Michael Lockyer demonstrated new tools for one-click formatting of page elements such as footnotes, sidenotes and embedded blockquotes.
Recent developments have been focused on the creation of the complex print and web layouts used in financial reporting, and Lockyer showed seamless linking and automatic formatting of Microsoft Excel charts and HighChart interactive graphics, among features for creating presentations of financial research and reporting.
Massimo Barsotti (pictured) stressed that functions and services presented were available now: "In spite of the public health crisis, our developers have not slackened their pace in creating the innovations that our customers need."
