KPS and Brightspot partner to deliver content management

KPS, a European-based digital transformation company deploying content solutions, has partnered with Brightspot, a content management system, to enable seamless, intuitive digital experiences for businesses around the world. Through Brightspot’s headless technology, KPS can provide its customers the ability to deliver modular content in an intuitive, flexible, agile manner that can be customized to accommodate complex workflows for specific industries or businesses. Benefits include:

  • Modular Content – Everything is built at the object level within the Brightspot platform, making it simple to build at the component level and deliver content on multiple devices and screens, presenting variations of content to different audiences based on location.
  • Extensibility and Speed – Brightspot is an extensible, headless platform that allows customers to be flexible and fast. The technology can extend with a customer’s business logic and workflow because it was designed to scale as the business matures, ultimately supporting organizations in launching dynamic digital experiences quickly.
  • Multi-site Flexibility – Brightspot’s framework allows customers to publish how they want (headless, decoupled or both) all from the same environment. Being able to manage multiple sites from one simple interface and allowing sites to share (or not share) everything can make things simpler to govern when maintaining multiple sites with microsites. ▪︎

Gilbane Advisor 8-4-21 — metaverses, DYI scrape and clean data

This week we have articles from Jon Udell and Ben Thompson. News comes from TransPerfect and Semantix, Datadobi, Couchbase, HubSpot, and the Apache Cassandra Project.

BTW, I don’t normally recommend anything to read that is completely behind a firewall. I do often recommend articles when the publisher offers a few free articles before restricting access.

Opinion / Analysis

A beautiful power tool to scrape, clean, and combine data

Are you someone who is not a data scientist but would love to be able to do some of your own data analysis without learning to code? Jon Udell has been looking for a way for non-technologists do this for years. He is technical himself, but often finds the effort more trouble than it’s worth. He provides an in-depth review of a product (it’s not his and there is a free version), and walks you through how he has used it. If you want some data analysis agency and don’t mind digging in to some details, this article is worth a look.


In his weekly free article Ben Thompson picks up on the fact that both Microsoft and Facebook have recently started talking about “the metaverse”. Of course their concepts of the metaverse differ in predictable ways: think Microsoft -> enterprise applications, and Facebook -> a virtual reality platform. Thomson goes deeper and provides some background on the term and its use. It is a great word, and it’s a safe bet we’ll be hearing it a lot more and used with much imagination.

Elastic centralizes management of Enterprise Search

Elastic announced a single management interface for Elastic Enterprise Search in Kibana, updated App Search precision tuning capabilities, and content source flexibility and synonym support for Workplace Search in the 7.14 release of Elastic Enterprise Search. Elastic Enterprise Search can now be centrally managed in Kibana, the single management interface for all Elastic solutions. With this beta integration, users can access App Search and Workplace Search features with consistent, cross-platform navigation in Kibana to create new engines, tune query relevance, manage user access, and customize visualizations.

Elastic also introduced precision tuning, now in beta and available in Kibana and via the App Search API. Users can narrow or broaden their search results by adjusting precision and recall settings on their search engine with a precision tuning slider.

Elastic released new indexing flexibility to prebuilt data integrations with more configurability for content source synchronization in Workplace Search. Customers can specify which objects to synchronize or exclude when ingesting content sources, including object type, path or location, file type, and field. Synonym support is also available in Workplace Search, enabling customers to create relationships between search terms and tailor results without reindexing.
