  • Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously!
    Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously! Steffen Frederiksen Recorded: Mar 15 2018 61 mins
    Do you have Office 365 in your organization? You may not realize it, but you already have the perfect solution for delivering the right information to the right people, at the right time, in the right format and language–and on the device of their choosing.

    Most content services hubs are expensive and complicated. Office 365 is an affordable, cloud-based, scalable platform that allows you to build content for a future of AI, machine-learning, chatbots, and machine-to-machine communication. It enables everyone, whether experienced in content architectures like DITA and XML or not, to use Microsoft Word and other familiar tools to create and share content in real time. Gartner recognized Microsoft as a leader in the Content Management Platform Magic Quadrant in 2017. Find out why!

    Join our special guest host, Paul Perrotta, and our special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, for this free, one-hour webinar, and learn exactly why and how Office 365 is a great platform for authoring, managing, and delivering the content of the future. Attendees will also learn the benefits that come with using it, as well as be taken through a specific use case in financial services.


    Since 1989, Steffen Frederiksen has been working with the creation, management, and distribution of structured, reusable business content. This work includes methods, software tools, training workshops and CMS solutions. He has managed the training of more than 200,000 writers around the globe, primarily in the financial services, pharma, and other regulated industries.

    While working for Information Mapping, Steffen developed the concept of “object-oriented information” as well as the MOM (Mapping Object Model) XML DTDs – some of the foundation of the DITA standard. With the objective of bringing the power of structured content to everyone, he founded DitaExchange in 2001 and developed its Dx4 software, which combines the DITA standard, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office.

  • Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution
    Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution Steve Manning Recorded: Mar 13 2018 59 mins
    On December 12, 2017, Steve Manning presented a discussion on how new technology will change the way we approach content. The addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and Artificial Intelligence means we must change the way we structure content. We are moving from a broadcast style of communication – publish and hope for the best – to a more conversational style of communication. More question and answer.

    This imposes requirements on the content models you need to create if you want to talk to the Bots. We must be more granular in our models. We need to implement Microcontent.

    Join our special guest host, Val Swisher, and Steve Manning In Part II of this series, where Steve will go a little deeper. He will discuss the language of bots/AI: intents, attributes, and assets. Then he’ll relate that to how the granularity you design into your models, the semantic labels you apply to elements, and the taxonomy you capture in creation can make or break your ability to publish DITA content to the new technologies. The session will include real-world scenarios that rely on a microcontent strategy.

  • Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility.
    Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility. Pablo Alvarez, Director of Product Management at Denodo. Mar 27 2018 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The data contained in the data lake is too valuable to restrict its use to just data scientists. It would make the investment in a data lake more worthwhile if the target audience can be enlarged without hindering the original users. However, this is not the case today, most data lakes are single-purpose. Also, the physical nature of data lakes have potential disadvantages and limitations weakening the benefits and possibly even killing a data lake project entirely.

    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and greater use of the data lake investment without minimizing the potential value for data science or for making it a less flexible environment. Multi-purpose data lakes are data delivery environments architected to support a broad range of users, from traditional self-service BI users to sophisticated data scientists.

    Attend this session to learn:

    * The challenges of a physical data lake
    * How to create an architecture that makes a physical data lake more flexible
    * How to drive the adoption of the data lake by a larger audience

    The digital world is transforming how we interact with our customers. In this world, content is currency and the right content drives the customer journey and connects each customer touchpoint with the next. But managing this content on a global scale across channels in multiple languages requires a new approach that centralizes data, standardizes process, and integrates technology into a unified platform.

    We’ll break down each step, including:

    • How to manage the content supply chain across departments and platforms.
    • How to apply processes that address each step from content creation and translation to delivery.

    When it’s used to curate, create, and deliver fresh content, artificial intelligence pushes the marketing content game to the next level. Your goal: Get the right content to the right people, when and where they want to see it. Machine learning is the key, saving you time, money, and guesswork.

    Machine learning can help you uncover not just what content is most competitive but what characteristics are pushing it to the top of the list, and even help you fine-tune your message in real time, keeping it fresh and commanding consumer attention. Once that message is refined and optimized, AI can help you determine consumer intent, seize site-specific demand opportunities, gauge opportunity sizing — and then make sure your message is discovered with predictive intelligence.

    To learn more about how to take the educated guesswork out of content creation, make your pitch more persuasive, and magnify your message, don’t miss this VB Live event.

    By attending thIs webinar, you'll learn how AI can:

    * Increase relevance for consumers across channels
    * Utilize propensity modeling to capture more customers
    * Boost content curation and creation using machine learning and NLP
    * Seize customer journey opportunities when they appear

    The FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) performs an essential public health task by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of people in the United States. CDER's primary mission is to promote and protect public health by ensuring availability of safe and effective drugs of high quality throughout the entire drug life cycle. The Center oversees the research, development, manufacture and marketing of drugs.

    In order for the FDA to best adapt to the ongoing rapid changes in the drug regulatory environment, driven by scientific innovation, globalization, the increasing complexity of regulated products, new legal authorities and additional user fee programs, CDER initiated a major effort five years ago to improve its ability to manage key regulatory data over the life of a drug and to better understand the global drug supply chain at a more granular level.

    During this webinar, Shanthi Vigneshwaran, Computer Scientist at the Food and Drug Administration, will share how the CDER has created a 360 view of a drug’s lifecycle, from inception to product. This includes visibility of the global drug supply chain, product ingredients, suppliers, and facilities - bringing them into one trusted view – and empowering the agency to trace any potential harm, save lives, and respond to changes in supply and demand more quickly.

    Join us to learn how it’s possible to:
    • Gain visibility into a global supply chain across disparate locations and systems
    • Address globalization and apply standards in data processes to ensure integrity

    Subscription businesses can lose the happiest of subscribers because of involuntary churn—that deadly form of attrition that comes from card declines and invoice failures.

    Even slight variations in a subscription business’ churn rate can have significant impact on revenues, so it’s critical to address involuntary churn -- and easier than ever. The latest subscription technology leverages machine learning, which can improve transaction success rates and billing continuity, helping automatically reduce involuntary churn and boost monthly recurring revenue by an average of 9 percent.

    Want to know more about how subscription businesses are making a positive impact on revenue? How can you optimize decline management and revenue recovery strategies based on your own unique business needs? Join our latest VB Live event and you’ll learn how to start and where, plus get a first look at the latest Revenue Recovery Benchmarks, which reveal the powerful impact of machine learning.

    * The power of dynamic retry logic, optimized for each individual invoice
    * The incremental lift that a well-designed dunning strategy can have on revenue
