Decoupling – Cobalt

You can use Eidosmedia’s latest platform, known as Cobalt, to feed a complete range of digital channels: websites, mobile and tablet apps, social media feeds, blogging, interactive voice – including future digital formats that have not yet been invented.

Cobalt is a ‘decoupled’ CMS – content from the back-end editorial processes is exposed in channel-neutral JSON format via a complete range of standard RESTful APIs. These interface with the delivery modules – native or open-source – which transform the content into digital products.

You can constantly update the delivery modules to keep up with technological developments or consumer tastes. At the same time, your core platform components and editorial processes remain undisturbed.

Complex page and edition design - Prime

If your portfolio includes print formats, Prime is the ideal integrated print-to-digital workspace. Prime’s functions cover every stage of the content creation and delivery process, with particular strengths in the production of complex print products, from newspapers and magazines to reports and technical documentation.

With Prime’s advanced page design and layout functions you can get results rivalling those of a dedicated graphic design application. You can use its edition-planning space to handle multiple print editions and advertising placement.

The complete integration between print and digital workflows makes Prime a highly efficient tool for managing mixed print/digital product portfolios.

Platform values

Productivity

Eidosmedia platforms free your staff up to add more value to their content by completely automating many routine content-handling tasks that consume time and resources in conventional solutions.

Examples range from the automatic generation of formats when an image enters the workflow to one-click publishing to multiple channels at the end of the process.

Precision

You can be sure that your published content complies with all QA and regulatory conditions, thanks to a granular system of permissions and checkpoints. At each stage of the process only authorized users may carry out permitted actions.
These checks and controls are highly automated, giving you high standards of quality and compliance without intensive manual inspection – allowing you to overcome the usual trade-off between speed of delivery and product quality.

Zero footprint

You can eliminate all on-premise installation requirements by combining the cloud hosting of server functions with the Swing mobile workspace.

By using a ‘zero-footprint’ solution like this, you can enjoy the rich functionality of an advanced editorial platform entirely without hardware or maintenance commitments.

Cloud deployment

By hosting your editorial installations on a public cloud or on our own private cloud platform, Eidosmedia can free you from many of the constraints involved in housing and maintaining physical infrastructure.

Eidosmedia platforms use service-oriented architecture, optimized for cloud deployment.

Standard technologies

Eidosmedia platforms use standard technologies. From established protocols like XML and CSS to more recent developments like JSON and PostgreSQL, Eidosmedia maintains its platforms at the forefront of digital content management by applying best-of-breed technologies. Eidosmedia platforms can be developed and maintained by staff with widely available skillsets, significantly reducing cost-of-ownership and vendor dependence.
