Are Your Solutions Advancing the Healthcare Market?

Earlier this month, I attended the HIMSS 2013 conference, arguably the largest healthcare IT conference in the country. HIMSS attracted over 1,000 exhibitors and over 40,000 attendees, including physicians, nurses, IT administration, and healthcare providers. Mobile health (mHealth), integration, collaboration, and analytics were a big focus this year, however, much of this new mobile health technology already has widespread presence within the market. The bigger questions now are whether healthcare organizations are utilizing this technology, how it’s being implemented, and what the impacts are on patient care. Even more importantly, though, is how OEMs are addressing these trends, as many of them maintain a heavy focus on copiers and scanners rather than mHealth initiatives.

InfoTrends Updates the Ultimate Guide to Web-to-Print Solutions

When web-to-print first entered the market with the onset of eCommerce in the 1990s, it was defined as a commercial prepress process that bridges the gap between digital content online and commercial print production. In the most basic terms, web-to-print was used to assist in facilitating the process for Internet based job ordering, submission, tracking, and collaboration. Now a few decades later, web-to-print vendors have expanded upon their original offerings. Originally for the e-enablement of businesses processes, web-to-print now goes beyond, to assist in the creation and tracking of multi-channel marketing campaigns, maintaining brand consistency, and acting as a connector between other online services.

To Thrive, Magazine Publishers Need to Embrace Digital Media

Last week’s announcement that the print edition of Newsweek magazine would cease at the end of 2012 shined a spotlight on the digital disruption that has accelerated business transformation for traditional publishers. It’s not like magazine publishers have their head in the sand; for over a decade, they have been forging ahead in a digital direction, trying a variety of strategies and tactics to grow their digital audience, increase online ad revenue, and monetize their content. Nevertheless, the sheer velocity of transformation in the last few years has forced magazine publishers of all sizes (and media companies in general) to be much more agile and innovative.

Magazines clearly remain an attractive outlet for advertisers, especially as digital channels attract new audiences and provide engaging and measurable advertising experiences. To that point, the Association of Magazine Media (MPA) recently released research conducted by Kantar Media highlighting that the number of brands advertising in magazine media–including print, web, and tablet channels–grew from just over 9,500 in the first half of 2010 to almost 15,000 in the first half of 2012. Advertisers value magazine media, especially as it extends to more interactive, data-rich channels. Read more »

Print service providers, like many other businesses, are being impacted by mobile technology. Smartphones and tablets are now an integral part of peoples’ daily lives; the pervasiveness of mobile technology continues to influence the “consumerization” of business, and the printing industry is not immune to this trend. Customers increasingly request access to services via their mobile devices, and internal business and production operations are going mobile, as well. Ultimately, the role of mobile technology is going to be increasingly important in business–and not just when it comes to marketing services.

InfoTrends wanted to uncover how print service providers are tailoring their services and operations to be more mobile-friendly. In our most recent annual software investment study, we asked 179 print provider respondents about their adoption and uses of mobile technology within their companies, finding that while adoption is still relatively low, it is poised for growth in the next year.

Five Software Trends to Watch For at Graph Expo 2010

 Oct 4, 2010

Software continues to play an integral role in print and cross-media production. Conventional wisdom is shifting from “throwing software at it” to try and solve problems in production environments to “strategy-based” software deployment. Numerous times we have seen companies play a reactive role when it comes to software; a client has a need not currently met by a company’s existing software arsenal, forcing them to quickly come up with a solution through investment or custom development. While this approach solves an immediate issue for a particular client, larger opportunities and long-term implications can be missed.

While there are no doubt many challenges service providers still face in today’s economy, many businesses are anxious to tackle initiatives they may have been forced to put on the back-burner in the past year or two; these initiatives may include automating workflow to increase efficiency, extending capabilities to the Web with e-commerce, and offering new services. Software is a key enabler for many of these initiatives, and service providers need to take a more proactive approach to choosing a vendor, product, and ultimately a partner that can help meet strategic goals.
