20 White Papers for a Software Development Company – Informative and Educational Content
The Client is a large outsourcing company operating internationally (in more than 15 countries, including CIS countries, the USA, and Western Europe).
The Client wanted to create a series of White Papers in an e-book format (for downloading).
The series covered the hottest and most discussed areas in IT, including AI, Data Science, Big Data, Cloud Computing, Process Automation, Business Intelligence and Analytics, Agile Methodology and Scrum Techniques, Distributed Computing, and Microservice Architecture.
Each White Paper was accompanied by a series of short announcements on social networks, guest posts on authoritative sites, and small, information-rich articles on the company’s blog.

Requirements to White Papers

Challenges and Solutions
It was decided to exclude direct advertising and CTA, as this approach
contradicted the informational style and editorial policy of the brand.
Instead, the Client’s products and services were promoted natively
as a worthy part of global practice
(e.g., by methodology).
