Content as a Service: the backbone of modern content operations (webcast)

Content as a Service (CaaS) moves content out of the traditional publishing world. Instead of creating content and pushing it to consumers at the end of the content lifecycle, you make content available on demand. Content consumers connect to a content repository and extract what they need.
