Technical communications has progressed from monolithic paper and digital manuals, to structured, topic-based authoring, and more recently down to 'microcontent' to improve quality, ease of access and consistency of message. 'Nano-content' is the next logical step in that progression and lives at the 'coalface' between content and data. It is the bridge between structured data and structured topics which, when properly managed, can add several new dimensions to technical publications work.
Universally faceted nano-content is a technique that takes a page from GPS applications that use triangulation (latitude, longitude, and elevation) to locate things in geographic space. Locating things in digital space should be just as intuitive and precise.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for this webinar with his special guest, John O’Gorman, Principal and Chief Disambiguation Officer at Quantum Semantics. John will walk through the process of identifying, classifying and using terminology to connect the language of a business or application to the content that supports its use. He will demonstrate how the same process can be extended to the content itself and how, in combination, faceted terminology takes findability to a whole new level.
ABOUT JOHN O'GORMAN
John O'Gorman is a 30-year veteran of the information management trenches. He is the inventor of a universal classification protocol called Q6, and co-founder of Q6FSA, an enterprise information management collaboration with Robert Vane in the UK. His experiences run the gamut from terminology stores and data catalogs, to executive information reporting, data warehousing, activity-based costing and technical communications, localization and internationalization. His big 'aha' moment came when he realized that all of them are made of the same stuff and follow the same rules.

Data is a company’s most-valuable resource, but only if the value can be unlocked. For most companies, Machine Learning is the key to unlocking that value. It may still be the early days for machine learning technologies, but nonetheless, companies are still making big strategic bets on how they are going to run their businesses in the coming era of smarter software, both in terms of acquisitions and implementation. For a comprehensive look at machine learning – covering everything from the technological underpinnings to the financial outcomes in the sector – join 451 Research’s Research Vice Presidents Brenon Daly and Nick Patience for a webinar on Dec. 12 at 11am ET as they make sense of the machine learning market including how some key tech acquirers are participating in the rapidly emerging market. Additionally, they’ll take a deep-dive into the machine learning technology itself, and how IT professionals are actually leveraging it.
The future of technical communication demands greater precision, knowledge, and discipline in how we create content across an omnichannel universe. It also requires better collaborative writing practices that will meet the need for faster delivery of information. The precision we require involves working with more granular content containing richer metadata. The topic becomes a container for these blocks of reusable content. Each block of content is written to evoke the intended reader response for that content. While these smaller blocks of content require more discipline, they are ultimately easier to write as they are more tightly focused on the need for that information.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Rob Hanna, President at Precision Content Authoring Services, for this free one-hour session. Rob will look at some of the writing and analysis techniques they use at Precision Content to enable content for both the present and future—man and machine.
Attendees will learn to see content differently from the perspective of:
–Language Arts for Information vs. Language Arts for Personal Response
–Four cognitive principles for analyzing and organizing information for better comprehension, and
–Information typing and how it relates to defining the intended reader response for that content.

Machine learning, or AI, may be considered as sophisticated technology which can only be understood by crazy nerds, or some dangerous technology can destroy human beings one day. As a machine learning data scientist, Joanna wants to tell you that machine learning is not either. It is very fun, can be learnt and mastered, and do more benefits than harm to the human beings. More important, it is a very suitable career for women.
In this presentation, Joanna will use a few use cases to represent its values and its technology (including deep learning), etc. I will also talk about the skill sets needed for machine learning.
Join this live webinar with Joanna Hu, Principal Data Scientist at Exabeam and recent nominee for Data Leader of the Year for Silicon Valley's Women in IT Award. Joanna will discuss:
- The data science behind the 2016 US presidential election
- What is machine learning / artificial intelligence?
- Use cases of machine learning: cyber security, shopping, search
- Skills and mindset needed for machine learning and why it's very suitable for women

IT leaders look to technology as a business differentiator and rely on it to foster innovation. Enterprises have discovered that hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) can be the foundation of a modern, cloud-like datacenter. But don’t stop there — going beyond HCI delivers more savings, increases IT agility, and supports multi-cloud goals when you add virtualization as an integral part of your stack.
How do you harness the power of HCI and virtualization? Sure, there are a wide variety of tools on the market, but choosing the wrong HCI platform could limit your options in how you operate your datacenter or could impede cloud goals — including those associated with virtualization.
To learn more about the power of HCI and virtualization, how virtualization can remove complexity and increase efficiency, and how to choose the right HCI tool, don’t miss this VB live event!
Registration is free.
Attend and learn:
* How virtualization platform options on the market compare
* Why to consider changing virtualization solutions
* How to choose the right virtualization solution
* How to save thousands in virtualization licensing costs

Like it or not, bid tendering and RFPs are an increasingly important part of the B2B marketer’s role – particularly for large contracts but increasingly for those of lower value.
The stakes for bid tendering are very high – get it right, and teams responsible will be heroes in the business. Get it wrong, and you’ve potentially wasted a lot of time, effort and cash.
So how can marketers use ABM techniques and tools to address this thorny marketing (and sales!) challenge? What’s the relevance of ABM to this unique business area, and how can it drive new thinking and new opportunities?
In this interactive webcast, Nick Pearce and Claire Carsberg of JPC will call on real life examples to explain how you can apply ABM to improve your bid strategy and the keys to success.
1. How to align procurement with your bid
2. How to challenge everyone involved in the bid process
3. How to be disruptive and make it part of your successful sales strategy
4. How to improve your chances of winning bids
5. How to avoid the common pitfalls, and turn failure into success
