Superdesk is a state-of-the-art digital newsroom system. It combines headless CMS functionality with powerful workflow features for an end-to-end news creation, production, curation and distribution platform. Built alongside journalists in the newsroom, it has a modular, API-centric design that enables news organisations to add and adapt the functionality most relevant to their business. Superdesk is open-source web-based newsroom software that integrates easily with legacy systems as well as third-party applications.
Whether you run a global media empire, publish a custom newsletter or are just embarking on digital publishing, Superdesk is for you. While Superdesk was designed with the specific needs of news agencies in mind, it is not only for large-scale newsrooms. If your newsletter turns into a multi-channel subscription news service, Superdesk will scale with your enterprise. No matter the publishing environment, your writers and editors will use the same intuitive, lightweight CMS tools and interfaces for creating, editing and distributing content ranging from text articles to multimedia packages.

We recently re-read the Superdesk Manual and unearthed a few hidden gems that we thought were worth sharing. Here are the top five.
Unlike many CMSs, which jettison production data at the end of publishing, in Superdesk, those bytes are saved and reused by the Analytics Module, helping newsroom managers answer key questions about their internal operations.
While every newsroom operates differently, at its core, the news-making process can be codified. For software developers, those standardised bits of data are the equivalent of digital gold
It used to be that when a publisher wanted to replace their news outlet’s content-management system, they faced some version of this question: to buy or build? But thanks to open-source software, that question has now become obsolete.
