French national daily Libération is moving to a cloud-hosted version of its Eidosmedia editorial and publishing platform.
Print editions were integrated in 2007 with the adoption of the developer's Méthode editorial and publishing platform, and a major upgrade began in September, with the most important feature being the transfer to an AWS cloud deployment. The fully hosted solution is managed remotely by Eidosmedia engineers, reducing the workload for local technical staff.
Libération has transitioned to an advanced editorial environment, providing the newsroom with new tools and a basis for future evolution and development. The upgrade has also involved significant improvements in picture handling and content delivery.
Libération platform manager Frédéric Beziaud describes the move as an essential step towards optimising new content workflows and interoperability with other platform components. The upgrade also involves the move to the Swing family of mobile workspaces, allowing journalists to work from any location. Journalists in the field will also be able to preview how stories will look on the print page.
Page designers and editors will continue to use Méthode's Windows workspace Prime to manage the layouts for the print edition, while sharing a common workflow with remote staff using the Swing workspace and the pagination environment.
