Tamedia: off to a good start with Enterprise Aurora

WoodWing ()

Switzerland’s Tamedia has successfully incorporated Enterprise Aurora into their editorial processes. This completes the first phase of their “New Editorial System Strategy” project with WoodWing’s partner A&F ComputerSysteme.

The aim of the project is to simplify editorial collaboration and move Tamedia closer towards their goal of becoming one of Europe’s leading digital media enterprises.

On July 8th, after eight months of concept and development, Tages-Anzeiger and Der Bund were successful in producing their publications using the new editorial system.



A new editorial system for Tamedia

Tamedia’s project includes the introduction of the new editorial system Enterprise Aurora as a central platform for the production of all newspapers and magazines. lt will also facilitate harmonisation of platforms, and standardisation and automation of work processes. The editorial system was completely built in the Amazon cloud to achieve the greatest possible flexibility. 

Earlier this month Tamedia was also successful in converting their brand SonntagsZeitung to the new editorial system, with the plan to convert Berner Zeitung and its regional editions this autumn. By the end of 2020 all of Tamedia’s titles will be produced with WoodWing’s Aurora.

This means that ultimately for all of Tamedia’s brands, content will be created independently of the channel or brand, on the shared system, and then assigned to publication channels when required.

  • It’s nearly 2020 and print publishing still matters: How print and digital can build better subscriber experiences

    Rumours of the death of print media have been greatly exaggerated. While online publications have been experiencing tremendous growth in recent years, the fact is that 58 per cent of subscribers still describe themselves as primarily print-oriented, and 60-80 per cent of publisher revenues are still generated from print. It’s true that the majority of print-first subscribers are older, but that doesn’t mean younger audiences won’t pay for print. They will, and they do.
