New Media System
WGTE’s New Media System is an enterprise "cloud" system that supports interconnected libraries of New Media items. With increased access to affordable broadband Internet, the explosion of online Social Media, and the introduction of a variety of handheld devices, the system addresses the need of organizations to create, manage, and distribute content dynamically from anywhere in the world.
The New Media System uses a centralized code library and sophisticated database technologies to manage the flow and control of content and New Media stored on Amazon S3 servers that provide scalable and secure enterprise solutions. Projects, users and items can be organized and managed within interrelated projects and groups employing roles and privileges through portal-based forms and simple drag-and-drop tools. In addition to New Media, the system uses standardized syndication to collect and aggregate Social Media from mass social networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.; content social networks such as YouTube, Flickr, etc.; and microblogging sites such as Twitter, Pownce, etc. Leveraging content distribution with the linking benefits of social Web participation, and combining with Search Engine Optimization (SEO), will directly influence the discovery of new contacts, content, and communities.
