LSCP and Technology Vendor Relationships


For clarity, we would like to state:

  • LSCP is a global, independent management consulting network with in-depth knowledge of content management e.g. in the context of IDMP+, industry and agency processes, regulatory standards as well as XML
    In a changing regulatory environment with applied  standards ahead and the overall mobility and access to a variety of sources, it becomes more and more important to develop and “enforce” compliance by applying an Enterprise Information (Data) Governance – including Business Intelligence
  • This is one important way to keep up overall compliance, but not without having a closer look at information that comes from web content interaction/transaction and needs to archived evidence
  • Through a paradigm change (human, not technology) in managing information, we are convinced that advanced Structured Content  Authoring (SCA) will be a key factor for success
  • We expect enterprises – this needs to be the ultimate scope of the objective – to organize relevant information in a way that it becomes actionable for Knowledge Management (KM) processes in decision making … and possibly be ready for any type of litigation
  • We recognize specialized technology Vendors, among those being STAR GRIPS, Author-it, DITA Exchange, EXTEDO as well as new Qumram and Ortec Medical, in the aim to provide holistic approaches, with astonishing credentials!

Need to VISUALIZE to users early on, e.g. in a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) what today’s cutting edge technology can provide to generate business user requirements looking forward – not backwards (“I do it my way – done it for many years!”) In our aim to find the best fit for our customers (and their ambition!) LSCP has and will continue to evaluated in-depth the features and opportunities of many advanced technology vendors and what they can provide to an environment to maximize content re-use and related benefits.
