Pegeen Wright Associates Introduces PWA Compass: A Structured Process for Managing the K–12 Digital Solution Lifecycle
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 02, 2012 - Pegeen Wright Associates (PWA), an educational technology consulting firm for K–12 publishers that develop digital learning products, is attending the Association of Educational Publishers’ (AEP) Content in Context Conference. PWA is introducing PWA Compass, a methodology that provides publishers with a structured process for managing the digital solution lifecycle—from concept through deployment. AEP is a non-profit, professional organization that serves the diverse needs of the entire educational resource community.
PWA works with publishers to identify and address the critical issues essential to successful product development. Ms. Wright notes,”Publishers today face a bewildering array of technology and business choices. And the outcome of these choices can determine the success of a publisher’s business over the coming years. It’s no longer enough to command expertise in educational publishing; we must now possess the skills of top software vendors as well. We have created our PWA Compass methodology to assist K–12 publishers in managing the digital solution lifecycle.”
According to Mr. Roger Dunn, Chief Technology Officer at PWA and former Senior Manager for KPMG’s High Technology practice, “K–12 publishers have made significant investments in digital solutions for personal computers, often in Flash. Now the iPad and other tablet devices are becoming increasingly popular, and we need to find innovative approaches to support these new technologies. Many publishers want to make sure their products run on these new tablets but also need to support the large installed base of personal computers in K–12 schools. To meet this challenge, publishers must develop a structured process in order to address the myriad of business and technology variables impacting their current and future product success. PWA’s Compass methodology is designed for this purpose.”
