NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Digital Book World 2013 will be exploring a vital topic today, addressing a key question for publishers—how much should they rely on startups and other industry outsiders to transform or reinvent the publishing industry? This comes after a wave of startups have emerged over the past few years that are promising to revolutionize the business.
Peter Evans, CEO of Speakerfile, takes the stage at Digital Book World 2013 along with fellow panelists Dominique Raccah, CEO and Publisher of Sourcebooks, and Michael Cader, Founder of Publishers Lunch, Publishers Marketplace, and the new Bookateria. Rick Joyce, Chief Marketing Officer of The Perseus Books Group, will be moderating this diverse panel on Driving Innovation in Publishing. Representing a range of viewpoints from publishing to technology startups, the speakers will discuss the quest for the "New New Thing" in books and who should lead the coming revolution.
"Publishing is moving beyond the book. We are entering a world where everyone can be a publisher, which presents challenges to existing players in the industry," said Peter Evans. "Speakerfile is playing a critical role in the discussion about how authors can be discovered and connected to a massive marketplace of conference engagements and media source opportunities. Many publishers are now seeing a book as just one element of an author's overall thought leadership."
Speakerfile is not alone in their view of the changing publishing model. With over 6,000 experts and authors on the platform with expertise on over 12,000 topics, clients across a range of industries as diverse as healthcare, IT, professional services and industry associations all use Speakerfile to publish content related to their experts and authors.
"A year ago, when I met Peter Evans of Speakerfile at Digital Book World 2012, I was impressed with the company's software platform and the way it connects author experts and thought leaders—with their publishers and agents alongside them—to conference organizers and meeting planners. Events and media are eager to find the best possible speakers to inform and engage their audiences and Speakerfile is great at helping make these connections," said Philip Turner, New York-based publishing executive.
"After working the Speakerfile team for the past year, and seeing the publishing clients I've introduced to Speakerfile find an abundance of new speaking engagements for their authors, I am more convinced than ever that Speakerfile is becoming a dynamic engine of discoverability for publishers, bringing authors and their books together with motivated audiences." A publishing industry veteran, Turner has held a number of senior positions with publishers in New York City over the past 25 years, acquiring, editing, and publishing many notable titles including the first paperback edition of Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father, and Ambassador Joseph Wilson's The Politics of Truth: Inside the Lies that Led to War and Betrayed My Wife's CIA Identity. He operates Philip Turner Book Productions and produces the popular blog, The Great Gray Bridge, while also working with Speakerfile as their representative to the publishing industry.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
