HotTopics: Grok This: Five Key Technologies For Every Information Provider
The accelerating pace of technology evolution makes it more important then ever for publishers and information providers to make smart decisions about how they use technology. But with so much choice, how can they know what really works and, more importantly, what's relevant for their organizations? This HotTopics examines RSS, 'lessware,' wikis, the semantic Web, and mash-ups, explaining why and how these five hot technologies and strategies can be used, and why they are an important part of publishers' and information providers' arsenals. For information providers, essential actions include getting in the game now and moving fast, both of which are easier now than with previous generations of information technologies. All of these technologies allow information providers to experiment quickly and cheaply, prototype new ideas flexibly, and move ahead or cut losses in much shorter cycles.
