We are just a short few weeks from London Book Fair 2016, which marks the 45th anniversary of one of the largest events in the global publishing calendar. It is a fantastic opportunity to explore new innovations in publishing, discuss rights, network with peers and consider further developments are predicted to come over the next year. During the fair we will be hosting a technology seminar, exploring some key issues within the publishing services industry, and showcasing our publishing production platform, Lanstad. Be sure to lock it in your calendar and head to the Tech Theatre to check it out.
Take a look at our latest presentation, currently featured on the SlideShare home page. The presentation explores how the publishing landscape is evolving from a format-driven industry to a content-focussed one. As a result of this our processes and technology solutions should adapt to meet these changing needs. This presentation looks at moving from a static desktop-based workflow to that of a collaborative cloud-based one.
We at Deanta are excited to announce the launch of our company-wide rebrand. We haven’t changed our name, Deanta – which means fully-fledged or complete in Gaelic – because it very much reflects who we are as a company, and our Irish origins. However, we have changed a lot of other things. Our focus has always been on adapting to the ever-changing nature of the publishing industry, and to be innovative and forward-thinking at all times. We felt that it was time to refresh our branding and business model to reflect where we are as a business, and what we are all about.
