Exploiting the Web for Rapid Product Innovation & Creation

New product innovation is a challenge for many publishers. How do you come up with new content product ideas that generate sustainable revenue streams and demand in an environment of limited funds and slashed budgets? How do you formulate, create and evaluate product ideas quickly? Explore how intelligent Agent web technologies can help create new products and enhance existing products. This lightening demo will show you how you can quickly come up with new product ideas that rely on web data as a mainstay for content. Using a simple point-and-click interface, non-technical innovators can create product prototypes by quickly identifying, collecting, and displaying structured content in any web-based distribution channel. Using a non-programmatic approach, your team can rapidly innovate, develop fresh ideas and prototype new, dynamic content for market testing. See how quickly simple ideas can evolve as wholly new products and gain traction before you commit costly resources to your new product concept.
