RSuite Cloud: Push-Button Publishing
by Barbara Brynko
Publishers today are scrambling to keep profits up, costs down, and users happy. But keeping a secure foothold in the information industry isn't easy, especially with the increased demands of changing technology and multichannel delivery. "Some publishers are very good at managing technology and some are not," says Barry Bealer, CEO of Really Strategies, Inc. That's one of the reasons the company rolled out its latest product called RSuite Cloud, a cloud-based, push-button publishing system for print and digital products. It's designed to automate the publishing process, offering output to all major publishing formats in 70 languages without changing a publisher's existing production systems. "This is for the publisher, whether big or small, that doesn't have a large in-house staff," says Bealer. "You don't have to manage the service; it's all in the cloud."

Update on Gale—Mobile, Global, and In Context
by Paula J. Hane
At the recent ALA Midwinter meeting, I caught up with Nader Qaimari, senior vice president of marketing at Cengage Learning, to talk about recent developments at Gale and get a peek at some forthcoming products. Gale continues to be excited about the streamlined company structure implemented last summer—the integration of Gale and Cengage. Qaimari says it lets the company make content connections and help libraries serve as the conduit to information and textbooks. Other news he was eager to discuss included the company's mobile initiatives, its new Gale World Scholar product line, enhancements to PowerSearch, new administrative tools, and ongoing work on the In Context products.
