Mark your calendars for another educational opportunity brought to you by the National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS). The Platforms that Perform: Taking Your Content to the Next Level educational workshop is scheduled for June 18, 2015 in Washington D.C. It will feature a distinguished group of speakers who will discuss their experiences and lessons learned in evaluating and implementing new content platforms within their organizations.

This event’s overall theme centers on key strategies publishers, government agencies and scholarly societies should set to optimize the selection, adoption, and migration of new platforms. This is an interesting and deep subject and should given the consideration it deserves.

Your platform is the front door to your content. The research you make available to your users is paramount to your mission and viability. With new platform innovations and user expectations changing daily, it is a challenge to figure out when and how to implement a transition to a new or upgraded platform.
