  • Break Up (with) Your Content: Preparing Structured Content for a Future of Bots
    Break Up (with) Your Content: Preparing Structured Content for a Future of Bots Doug Kim, Content Strategist, Microsoft Office Recorded: Aug 9 2017 60 mins
    Everybody’s talking about bots, but even if you don’t have one yet, how do you get your content ready for a future full of bots? And what about the next thing after that, and after that? The key is writing and structuring content in a clean, simple, granular way.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and former journalist—and Microsoft Office content strategist—Doug Kim, for a free, one-hour webinar designed to help you understand the need for structured content in our fast-changing technology-powered world. Doug will discuss why structured content is needed for much more than multi-channel publishing 

Attend this session to learn how to lay the foundation for future by restructuring your content, why it’s critical to match single intents to single answers, and why we need to reuse content in bots, instant answers, and other advanced content forms.

    Doug willl give pointers on how to:

    1) Lay the foundation for future by restructuring your content
    2) Match single intents to single answers
    3) Reuse content in bots, Instant Answers and other advanced content forms

He’s been at Microsoft for eight years, where, amongst other things, he’s led efforts to revamp the voice and tone of content and UI text in the Microsoft Office suite and improve video and multimedia content.

  • Building Chatbots with Intelligent Content
    Building Chatbots with Intelligent Content Cruce Saunders, [A] Recorded: Aug 9 2017 62 mins
    Industry analysts predict chatbots and intelligent assistants will overtake traditional web interfaces as the primary consumer touchpoint; replace or augment mobile apps; and completely transform customer service. Are you ready?

    The good news is that with some engineering, chatbots can employ and extend existing content repositories.  Intelligent content allows us to single-source content out to interactive channels such as chatbots and intelligent assistants.  The side-effects may include boosting the ROI of existing content, increasing sales cycles, improving conversions, and reducing customer service costs while improving satisfaction.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, with intelligent content expert, Cruce Saunders, founder and principal at [A] (simplea.com) and author of Content Engineering for a Multi-Channel World, as he discusses chatbots as a new content distribution channel that we can’t afford to ignore. Cruce will cover basic chatbot content requirements, components and construction. And, he’ll discuss how to future-proof content with a content model, making it chatbot-ready.

    Attendees will learn:
    * Practical steps to integrating chatbot content elements into your existing content types
    * The various types of chatbots available today and the value they serve as an engagement tool and content channel
    * How to leverage existing content to power one or more chatbots, and practical ways to integrate chatbot components into your CMS structured content types
    * The high-level first steps to building a chatbot-enabled content model 
  • Understanding Agentive Technology
    Understanding Agentive Technology Christopher Noessel, IBM Recorded: Aug 9 2017 62 mins
    Advances in narrow artificial intelligence make possible agentive systems that do things directly for their users (like, say, an automatic pet feeder). They deliver on the promise of user-centered design, but present fresh challenges in understanding their unique promises and pitfalls. In particular, these systems challenge content strategists and technical, marketing, and support writers, and product managers alike to think in new ways since they deliver value mostly when the user isn’t paying them any attention.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Christopher Noessel, Global Design Practice Manager for Travel and Transportation at IBM for a free, one-hour discussion about agentive technology. Christopher will introduce us to the concepts from his new book, "Designing Agentive Technology" (Rosenfeld Media, 2017). bit.ly/agentivebook

    Attendees will learn what agentive technology is (and what it isn't), its history, how it fits in the artificial intelligence mix, and why agentive systems are so interesting and potentially useful. Come prepared to ask questions.

    About the presenter

    Christopher Noessel is the Global Design Practice Manager for Travel and Transportation industries with IBM. He teaches, speaks about, and evangelizes design internationally. His spidey-sense goes off semi-randomly, leading him to speak about things from interactive narrative to ethnographic user research, interaction design to generative randomness, and designing for the future. He is co-author of Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction (Rosenfeld Media, 2012), co-author of About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design, 4th Edition (Wiley, 2015), keeper of the blog scifiinterfaces.com, and author of Designing Agentive Technology: AI That Works for People (Rosenfeld Media, 2017).
  • The Fifth Element: How Structured Content Makes Chatbots Helpful
    The Fifth Element: How Structured Content Makes Chatbots Helpful Alex Masycheff, CEO of Intuillion Recorded: Aug 9 2017 61 mins
    Just a few years ago, providing context-sensitive software product documentation was a goal for many technical communication teams. The aim was to provide contextually relevant—and helpful—content based on a customer's location in a software product. By breaking large technical documents into smaller pieces, these forward-thinking companies were able to make discrete chunks of content available in the product interface; no need for customers to go looking for assistance in a user manual or online help portal.

    Today, contextually relevant content is expected by digitally-savvy consumers. The definition of context has broadened to include many additional factors (user profile data, geographic location, product model, version number, preferred language, time zone, previous interaction history, and the capabilities of the device used to consume the content). Providing contextually-relevant content today is no trivial matter. It's challenging, especially for teams that have not adopted advanced information development management practices, e-methods, and tools.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a free, one-hour webinar with structured content expert, Alex Masycheff, co-founder and CEO of Intuillion Ltd. We'll discuss how emerging delivery technologies can leverage structured technical content to deliver contextually relevant content via conversational user interfaces like chatbots. We'll delve into how chatbots can be used to provide improved context-sensitive assistance and we'll demystify the five elements that make chatbots a valuable addition to our customer experience arsenal. Attendees will learn when chatbots bring the greatest value; what makes a chatbot helpful; and, why structured content is critical to chatbot project success.

  • How Better Measurement of User Outcomes Drives Quality
    How Better Measurement of User Outcomes Drives Quality James Urquhart, SOASTA SVP Performance Analytics Recorded: Aug 3 2017 43 mins
    In the developer world, measurement of code and infrastructure has long served as the “eyes” into system quality and performance. But, as our systems become more focused on microservices and “serverless” function-centric models, the paradigm of measuring the system by its code breaks down. The solution seems to come from looking at things from the user’s perspective and measuring and testing user outcomes. Find out how this shift is changing everything from monitoring to testing to system design.

  • Data-Driven Digital Transformation - The Key to Effective Marketing & Analytics
    Data-Driven Digital Transformation - The Key to Effective Marketing & Analytics Don Nanneman, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Informatica Recorded: Aug 1 2017 29 mins
    Advances in marketing technologies, programs and processes have exploded over the past few years. To take better advantage of these innovations, you need to fuel them with trusted, governed, relevant and authoritative data. The results are deeper customer insights around relationships so that you can unleash differentiated customer engagement and personalized experiences.

    Businesses are drowning in a deluge of data collected from so many sources and in so many formats. To unleash the power of data, information needs to be intelligently shared by multiple applications across the business. However, the quality of the data can't always be guaranteed, resulting in errors and wasted effort. Equally important, analytics using bad data will produce inaccurate results leading to poor decision making. With the right technology and an intelligent data-driven approach, companies can effectively see, understand, and share data insights across their organizations.

    Trusted by over 4,000 Salesforce customers, the Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services offers the most complete suite of modular data management services for the Salesforce Sales, Service, Marketing, Commerce, IoT and Analytics Clouds.

    Attend this informative Informatica session, hosted by TechRepublic, and learn how:

    • Delivering great data quality will improve marketing ROI, analytics and improved customer experiences

    The ultimate goal of marketing is to provide the consumer with a personalized experience across numerous channels and devices, at scale.

This is the first part of key data that the marketer needs to start the omnichannel journey.

    In this presentation, we will focus on how to start your journey with the #1 digital channel for ROI, email.

  • Is Email The Junk Mail of Tomorrow? Not if We Can Help It!
    Is Email The Junk Mail of Tomorrow? Not if We Can Help It! Liz Miller - CMO Council, Julie Gibbs - Gigamon, Tommy Lamb - Teleflora Aug 23 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    At the dawn of the digital age, email heralded a bold turn away from junk mail and battling the paper bulge of the overworked mailbox. But in today’s crowded engagement landscape, email has started to feel more like a cheap imitation of its scan-and-junk bulk snail mail predecessor.

    According to the technology research group, Radicati, 205 billion emails are sent each day. Not even social can compete with the power of email, according to a Forrester report that indicates that people are twice as likely to sign up to receive a brand’s emails as they are to interact on Facebook. But, as email open rates are increasing year over year according to Epsilon, rising from 31 percent to 34.1 percent, email CLICK rates are in decline, dropping from 3.5 percent to 3.1 percent in Q3 of 2016.

    Nonetheless, email continues to deliver. According to the Direct Marketing Association, in 2016, email had a median ROI of 122 percent, nearly four times higher than other marketing tactics including social, direct mail and search. And, according to a recent CMO Council study, 52 percent of consumers surveyed say email is a critical part of the customer experience, second only to access to a corporate website.

    The spray and pray messaging approach of old is no longer applicable to emails. Where personalization reigns, what are the new rules of email marketing engagement and how have CMOs adjusted strategies to optimize emails as part of a holistic customer experience?

    Join the CMO Council as we assemble a panel of marketing leaders who have all evolved email strategy to advance the customer experience and pull this powerful point of connection out of the junk mail pit.
