Transferring content from one content management platform to another can be a difficult, time-consuming and costly task. At SPi Global, our experienced teams of project managers, content analysts, software engineers, content technicians, and QC analysts have developed a number of ways to efficiently and cost effectively migrate content, and then maintain those platforms once the information has been converted.
Content engineering: Our teams design and develop conversion scripts that enable raw feeds from leading news information providers. These are then processed via customized, automated tools that convert the online data into XML. We review how the data should appear online and then transform the content into the aggregator’s proprietary format.
Content uploading: SPi Global programming teams also ensure that programs and processes are in place to ensure that the content uploaded from the raw feed or information services provider follows the client’s guidelines. Again, we automate the process to handle the vast amount of content that we need to process for our clients.
Database design maintenance: For several clients, our teams also maintain the online bibliographic databases, ensuring that the information contained is reviewed for version accuracy and ready for delivery to customers when needed.
