EBCONT rocks at Frankfurt Book Fair 2023

It was a very successful three days for EBCONT and the SiteFusion ProConsult team at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2023 last October. The invitingly designed exhibition stand was besieged by numerous interested guests every day and it was great to see how our company's solutions and services aroused so much interest among the public.

The presentation clearly conveyed the following message: 

EBCONT is the go-to partner for multichannel publishing solutions and e-learning. For years, we have been successfully building e-learning, content processing and content delivery apps with the integration of semantics and AI for leading publishers and also support them in the introduction and customizing of a CMS. We rely on proven tools such as MarkLogic, SiteFusion and the Fonto Editor.

Exciting presentations by EBCONT's Frank Blau, our AI expert Gregor Sieber and publishing professional Andreas Hubmer provided inspiration and a fantastic opportunity to discuss the future of digital publishing.


Spannende Vorträge

Frank Blau, Principal Data Architect at EBCONT, fascinated in his impulse around the historical parallel between Gutenberg and modern CMS and explained how CMS is changing industries and labor markets and how companies can use CMS by unleashing the power of structuring and restructuring with CM.

Gregor Sieber, Executive Vice President EBCONT, showed in his presentation how customers can use the Publishing AI Hub solution, customers can use sustainable AI tools in various phases of the content value chain while retaining control over the data, how AI-related processes can be orchestrated and automated or how AI solutions can be deployed on a managed infrastructure. The EBCONT team relies on proven tools such as SiteFusion CMS, MarkLogic/Progress and OpenAI for a modern, AI-powered publishing approach.

For years, we have been creating digital solutions for publishing interactive exercises for our customers in the educational publishing industry. We build on the DITA XML standard and combine SiteFusion and Fonto to create a customized solution for your needs, both in the editorial process and in publishing, Andreas Hubmer, Head of EBCONT Germany and proven publishing professional, was able to convince in his presentation.

One highlight was certainly the presentation of the "dpr digital publishing award 2023" in the category "Product/Business Model" to Thieme for the software medical product "foscoMED" developed by EBCONT according to Thieme specifications! 

The dpr Digital Publishing Report thus recognizes "foscoMED" as an outstanding project for the digital transformation of media. The award ceremony took place on October 18, 2023 at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Thus, the entire EBCONT team was able to record the time invested at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2023 as extremely positive and successful and looks forward to continuing these promising relationships and shaping the future of publishing together.
