Adaptive Content in Practice at CMS Expo 2013!

Posted by:   Cloud CMS

We were very grateful to attend CMS Expo 2013 in Evanston, IL.  This is a fantastic event put together every year by John and Linda Coonen.  It features top-tier content management vendors along with educational sessions, product demonstrations and comparisons.

This year, Cloud CMS participated in presenting two sessions - one on Cloud Content Management specifically and the other on Adaptive Content in Practice.  

Cloud CMS takes a very data-centric view of content and allows you to quick re-purpose your content across multiple mobile and web applications.  We’ve designed our system to really be agnostic as to the presentation tier, so it’s very easy to build apps that render for iOS, Android or HTML5.

This presentation covers Adaptive Content - a term that is descriptive of this kind of content repurpose.  It focuses heavily on content modeling as that is one of the essential underpinnings for an Adaptive Content strategy.

The presentation included a hands-on exercise and demo built around two mobile applications built by Cloud CMS customer Solocal Mobile.  These applications are part of their mobile education suite (for .edu commencement and alumni web sites).

Be sure to check out SoLocal Mobile if you’re looking for an experienced team to build your next mobile application.

We invite you to learn more about Cloud CMS.  It’s free to get started with a trial account.  Sign up today!
