- DCX Expo is expanding its offering: With the new “Content Services” area, the exhibition, in addition to media companies and news publishers, addresses also content marketing agencies, content management providers as well as decision-makers from the technology departments of companies in other industries
- Partners are the heads of the leading XING groups on topics concerning content and information management as well as publishers, media & publishing, Dr. Ulrich Kampffmeyer, Nico Rehmann and Johannes F. Woll
The DCX Digital Content Expo is expanding its portfolio: For the first time the exhibition, that will take place from 9 to 11 October in Berlin, will include an area dedicated to “Content Services” that will also have its own stage. This term is used to describe solutions and services that companies can use to manage the growing flood of information in a way that is automated, safe and in conformity with the law.
Legislation such as the GDPR and other compliance regulations are at present among the greatest challenges facing businesses. There is an increasing urgency to safely manage electronic contents. It is not just publishing companies and news publishers that are concerned, but organisations operating in all branches of industry that produce, receive, evaluate, use, store and archive electronic information.
A new exhibition area at the DCX Digital Content Expo brings together all products and services for managing the growing flood of information. In addition, in order to underpin the exhibitors' offerings for this sector, information on trends in content services will be presented in lectures presented on a special stage.
The exhibition organisers are pleased to announce that they have succeeded in securing high-profile experts as partners for the launch into this new area, in particular Dr. Ulrich Kampffmeyer of PROJECT CONSULT who has already developed the topic of information management for exhibitions such as “DMS Expo” and “IT & Business” as well as for industry associations. Nico Rehmann, Head of the XING Ambassador Group "Content Management" and Director of asioso GmbH, as well as Johannes F. Woll, responsible for the XING Ambassador Groups "Media & Publishing" and "Publishing and Media" and Director of Social Event GmbH, will broaden the programme by including topics for media makers, such as new business models, omni-channel, mobile, smart data or the interconnection of various software systems.
From content administration and Big Data to Artificial Intelligence
The Gartner research and advisory company sees new developments in the market for information management solutions: According to this company, content services serve as platforms for applications and components for the management of structured and unstructured information. Modern technologies such as Big Data, Blockchain, Analytics, Mobile, Cloud and Artficial Intelligence, are expanding existing approaches towards document, enterprise content and information management. This also includes traditional areas such as scanning, archiving, electronic files, workflow and records management.
Content services are at the same time service offerings for the preparation, publication and recording of digital content, independent of whether on public websites, intranets or E-Commerce platforms. This part of the content services industry offers support in the design, production and distribution of contents. But software and systems are also increasingly coming under the service heading. The suitable service offering for customer portals, processing invoices, signing, converting, publishing and storing builds the bridge between existing in-house solutions and cloud offerings as well as external, outsourced content services applications.
The new exhibition area is aimed especially at Managing Directors and CEOs, CIOs, IT managers, Organisation Managers, Records Managers, Auditors and persons working in legal departments as well as suppliers of solutions and systems who are seeking partners for a services-oriented concept for customer solutions.
DCX: A new home for content services
“The visibility of content services, the offering for document management and enterprise content management suffered in the last years from the fact that there no longer existed any joint exhibition and congress event in the industry. DCX in Berlin now has the opportunity to build up a new information channel to users and suppliers. The exhibition offering for news and content technology is an ideal starting point for this”, is how Dr. Kampffmeyer of the PROJECT CONSULT corporate consulting company describes his reason for cooperating with DCX.
Vincent Peyrègne, CEO of WAN-IFRA, adds: “Managing the constantly growing volumes of information in an automatic, safe and lawful way is an important topic for publishing companies that are dealing increasingly with major volumes of data. This concerns topics such as compliance, storing of electronic media such as photos and videos or the modular design of contents for various channels. But also all other publishers and industrial companies will benefit from this expansion of the range of topics covered by our exhibition.”
