Pearson and its illustrated non-fiction imprint, Dorling Kindersley, today announce the launch of Pearson’s Plug & Play Platform, a new initiative for working with developers and sharing the company’s award-winning content.

The Pearson Plug & Play Platform unlocks the company’s rich content bank – which ranges from DK’s vivid images of nature, travel and science to textbooks from Pearson Education – by making certain content available to internal and external developers. These developers in turn can blend valuable Pearson content with other material and data to build entirely new, innovative products.

The Plug and Play initiative will provide a developer community empowered to work regularly with the datasets of DK and other Pearson companies, including Pearson Education and its FT Press imprint, which includes titles on business, management, marketing and science.

The Plug & Play Platform will help enable developer communities to help establish new commercial models associated with innovative uses of DK and other Pearson content by developers. This approach includes the building of interfaces to allow DK and other Pearson data to be accessible, and lead to more collaboration, both internally and externally.

DK Travel’s Digital Publisher, Peter Buckley, says: “DK is excited about Plug & Play’s potential to link developers with valuable content and provide room for innovation to flourish. Working with developers in this way and being open to the unexpected is going to be very invigorating.”

The launch of the Plug & Play Platform with DK content is the lead project in a global Pearson initiative that seeks to make it easier for the world’s wealth of developer talent to work with Pearson and its unique content in order to experiment and innovate.

Pearson’s Future Technologies Group Product Manager, Diana Stepner, says: “We recognise the world has changed and our content needs to be available for innovative uses outside Pearson. Plug & Play opens up opportunities for DK and Pearson to connect with developers who are seeking the rich content we can share.”

The first material to be tested with this launch will be DK’s bestselling Eyewitness Travel Guide material, already available in multiple formats including books, ebooks and third party apps (iPhone®, iPad® and Android®). DK’s content covers a huge range of subjects from science and natural history to gardening, cookery, parenting and early learning, and is for all ages. DK hopes to see the fruits of this launch in the form of new and innovative digital product in early 2012.
