Springer, who also serves on the SIIA's content division committee as Vice Chair, will be on a panel to discuss the shift how information purchases by individuals are changing the way that business content is purchased. The presentation "Buyers, Buyers Everywhere and Not a Site License in Sight" is part of the two-day conference that delves into how the digital information industry is navigating challenging waters as users take more control over how they purchase, use, share and store the products that content providers create.

"The ongoing changes in the content industry have made the market very interesting to navigate," said Springer. "ECNext's intricate understanding of metrics, in which we can determine what drives end buyers to publisher sites, continues to help publishers test and change their course to positively impact their bottom line. I look forward to sharing insights at IIS 2006 and discuss ECNext's cutting-edge technology, marketing and understanding of the end buyer."
