NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kanban, a boutique technology and content engineering consultancy, partnered with Nikon Inc., and creative shop Sposto Interactive, to deliver a best-in-class content marketing experience.

The experience, referred to as Learn & Explore, provides existing and potential customers with a modern and engaging set of interactions surfacing branded editorial content written exclusively by Nikon and associated world-class photographers.  Some highlights of the new content marketing platform are:

  • Programmatic navigation and filtering
  • Search-engine-optimized, advanced front-end techniques
  • Localization & translation
  • Flexible content and metadata model 
  • Component-based content management system (HP/Autonomy TeamSite and LiveSite)
  • Editorial-inspired content authoring
  • CMS-integrated workflow and video player from Brightcove
  • Best-of-breed open-source faceted navigation (Apache Solr)

A large part of the effort focused on content engineering; a discipline focused on the processes, systems, and technologies required to publish and optimize content-rich websites.  "We never start a project for clients with the goal of winning awards, but it is certainly an honor to be recognized by our peers and the industry as a whole.  With highly educational and useful content being the cornerstone of effective content marketing, most marketers are unprepared to deal with the underlying technologies and processes required to be successful," explained Kanban's CEO, Josh Manton.

However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
