OpenTextTM Content Hub for Publishers (CHP) is a comprehensive Editorial Content Publishing Platform. It provides news wire handling, picture desk and archive tools to manage resources for research, search and find, content authoring and creation, and packaging for print and digital media needs. CHP is designed for the large volumes of content that newsrooms across the world are exposed to daily. It efficiently manages the receipt, enrichment and distribution of that content to multiple publishing channels, such as web, print, mobile and tablet.

CHP’s “content hub” strategy places content, rather than multiple processes, at the center of a rationalized workflow.  It allows controlled access to the content hub and editorial control over the creation of content while facilitating delivery to multiple branded channels. Placing content at the center of the new business model, makes it possible to move towards an iterative workflow across the organization. This provides greater control of digital assets and capabilities to enhance, track, and leverage your assets for delivery across multiple channels and platforms.

Traditional print, editorial and publishing models are in decline.  Content Hub for Publishers leverages the organization’s print publishing expertise and transforms it for online publishing, content authoring, editorial photography, digital news/information production and distribution to multiple channels, outlets and platforms.

Content Hub for Publishers adds value in these key areas.

OpenTextTM Content Hub for Publishers is a browser-based set of applications, providing a rich user experience with a panelized drag and drop based interface. Users can create and manage their own working environment, with multiple saved workspaces and layouts.

An open, standard web services interface is provided based upon the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) specification. This allows external systems access to the resources that power the CHP platform. Clients that are based upon the CMIS standard can also directly access CHP – for example, the Adobe® Drive application provides a CMIS connector that can present the content within CHP as a shared drive on a users’ local desktop.

CHP provides a documented plugin API that enables clients to build additional user interface components. This can be used to provide close integration with other systems within a publishing environment, such as an editorial or Content Management System, and can be used to position CHP as a central editorial dashboard.
