The experience, referred to as Learn & Explore, provides existing and potential customers with a modern and engaging set of interactions surfacing branded editorial content written exclusively by Nikon and associated world-class photographers.  Some highlights of the new content marketing platform are:

  • Programmatic navigation and filtering
  • Search-engine-optimized, advanced front-end techniques
  • Localization & translation
  • Flexible content and metadata model 
  • Component-based content management system (HP/Autonomy TeamSite and LiveSite)
  • Editorial-inspired content authoring
  • CMS-integrated workflow and video player from Brightcove
  • Best-of-breed open-source faceted navigation (Apache Solr)

A large part of the effort focused on content engineering; a discipline focused on the processes, systems, and technologies required to publish and optimize content-rich websites.  "We never start a project for clients with the goal of winning awards, but it is certainly an honor to be recognized by our peers and the industry as a whole.  With highly educational and useful content being the cornerstone of effective content marketing, most marketers are unprepared to deal with the underlying technologies and processes required to be successful," explained Kanban's CEO, Josh Manton.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments.
