Interoperability in the Publishing Industry – Starting the Journey in Printing and Logistics

Jens Nebe and Dr. Julius Mittenzwei

Most companies foster digitalization only within their respective enterprise. But thinking outside the box of their own company is vital in order to make the digital transformation a success, and to thrive in the process. Interoperability is key. Organizations along the entire value chain in publishing, and from several countries started an initiative aiming at „Integrating the Publishing Environment“, in order to develop open standard interfaces to make interoperability happen. Jens Nebe and Dr. Julius Mittenzwei are the champions of the first two working groups Printing and Logistics. They will provide practical insights, explain the need for this initiative, and report about what has happend so far.
