Video : Guardian Platform Product Management


The Guardian is one of the most innovative media companies, and has led the way on building an open platform for the wealth of content and data they have. In the Guardian’s long history, content delivery has evolved from the printed page to today’s multi platform environment where the latest news stories are published not just in print, but on the web, mobile apps, blogs, audio and video and twitter. Here Stephen Dunn discusses how they have managed the development of this platform, and how to product manage large platforms.

The Guardian has developed a strategy around Open In – bringing in data and apps from the internet, and Open Out – enabling partners to build applications using Guardian content and services. This strategy doesn’t just enable the Guardian to work with external partners, but powers their own mobile apps and other products – in fact product development is the main driver in the continuing development of the platform.
