2021 will see scholarly publishers focus on the creation of new digital delivery environments that allow them to expand on existing revenue streams and capitalise on new opportunities. So says our co-founder Sam Herbert, whose latest podcast interview with Matthew Ismail, editor in chief of the Charleston Briefings: Trending Topics for Information Professionals and Director of Collection Development at Central Michigan University, is available to stream or download via the Charleston Hub.
Sam said: “2021 is going to be a tough year for publishers. Many know they need to reboot but they don’t know where to start with their digital transformation journey. Buying off-the-shelf products from their traditional platform vendors simply doesn’t offer the ownership and flexibility they need in the new era. They need a whole new approach, not only to digital technology, but also to skills, mindset, and culture. Digital transformation is exciting, fast moving and yields big results for those that can hold their nerve – and we can guide companies through it every step of the way.”
