I had the pleasure of hosting terrific webinar last week, featuring HarperCollins senior director of global digital operations Leslie Padgett and content solutions architect at RSI Content Solutions Eliot Kimber. They did a great job of articulating how HarperCollins has begun to transition from legacy print production to a system that is automated and truly multichannel.

HarperCollins Publishers has undertaken a publishing automation program to accelerate book production over the past year. This program encompassed a change in their internal workflows and content transformations into ePubs. How did they do it and what were the lessons learned? Please join Leslie Padgett, Senior Director, Global Digital Operations at HarperCollins and Eliot Kimber, Senior Solutions Architect at RSI Content Solutions, as they give you the answer in this one hour webinar.

New York, NY - January 14, 2015 - HarperCollins Publishers today announced it has finalized the implementation of EPUB 3 for its e-book production; all new e-books are now being distributed in EPUB 3 with backward compatibility to EPUB 2. The company has implemented RSuite CMS workflows and EPUB transformation to allow for continuous support of the format. HarperCollins and RSI Content Solutions will contribute the EPUB 3 transformation to the DITA for Publishers open-source community so that others may benefit.
