One of the paramount responsibilities of government is the protection of the welfare of youths and children. Study after study has demonstrated the correlation between contact and interaction with child protective services and later quality-of-life outcomes. And on too many occasions, at-risk youth become tragic statistics before they reach adulthood.
In the on-demand webinar Using Advanced Analytics to Protect At-Risk Children, hosted by Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) Chief Executive Officer Robert Taylor, experts from SAS Institute and Ernst & Young discuss the challenges facing child welfare professionals, how data from disparate sources can flag high-risk situations, and how an evidence-based approach, focused on outcomes for at-risk children, can be driven through the operation, from policy-makers to program managers to front-line workers and improve outcomes.

The big data analytics market has undergone continuous transformation since its’ inception and continued in 2017 with new innovations and a strong move to the cloud. But from the view of a customer, the world should be getting simpler, not more complex, and they expect products to make deployments faster and easier.
Instead of complex, “piece together your own architecture” approaches, 2018 will be a year in which customers can really focus on what’s important – the data and analytics – and not the underlying technologies that support them, whether on-premise, in the cloud, or hybrid.
In this session, John will explore five ways in which modern big data platforms will enable to you:
-Accelerate your big data initiatives
-Get more value from your data lakes
-Drive faster, more innovative analytics

Ten years ago, The Content Wrangler published details about a survey that found most documentation managers don’t use metrics as a performance measure. Has that changed? Have documentation managers stuck to their old, metric-less ways, or have they all become “quants” in 10 years’ time?
Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Barry Saiff, CEO of Saiff Solutions. Barry is the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Technical Communications Leaders, and a 30-year veteran documentation leader. He will lead a discussion about the ins and outs of calculating costs and return on investment for documentation projects.
Attendees will learn from the results of a real-world case study of a technical documentation project that required technical writing, technical illustrations, and a couple of key metrics: cost per page and pages per date. You’ll learn how difficult it was for the team to track, calculate, and report these seemingly simple numbers and how they overcame these challenges. You’ll discover the connection between measurement and process design and learn valuable lessons that should help you avoid getting lost in the weeds of data- and cost-tracking.
With AR and VR technologies, it’s the first time that data collection has been part of the front-end strategy vs back-end process. As companies compete to create new, interactive experiences, data is the tool of choice to measure all aspects of player engagement and marketing effectiveness. In this webinar, two industry experts, Nicolas Nadeau and Andrew Mayer, will talk about the trends driving AR and VR markets today, and what data-driven approaches companies need to think about to compete in these markets tomorrow.
Nicolas Nadeau - President, Exostatic

Today’s companies need approaches to analytics that are both faster and smarter than ever before. Faster, because business users can no longer afford to wait days or weeks to get questions answered by overloaded technical analysts. And smarter, because it’s no longer sufficient to only report what happened when. Augmented analytics help users understand why activities are occurring, and how to make the right adjustments moving forward.
In this webinar, we’ll share how augmented analytics is transforming business intelligence and analytics. Hear how leading transportation company Dayton Freight reduced their analytics process from hours to seconds and gained valuable insights that weren’t evident through traditional BI methods.
Join this webinar to learn:
- How consumer-friendly paradigms such as natural language and search allow business users to quickly create their own analytics
- How machine learning can quickly interpret sophisticated concepts and metrics specific to your company
- How artificial intelligence can proactively alert users to business trends and outliers
Are you thinking about incorporating tone into your content strategy? If so, you've probably seen how confusing this topic can be.
We know, because we are human beings, that language can misfire. Tone is where understanding and emotion come together – and sometimes that’s messy.
Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Pierre Gagnier, Content Strategist at ADP Innovation Lab, for this free, one-hour webinar. Pierre will show you how a team of researchers at ADP were able to tame some of the trickiness of tone and measure its impact. What they learned will help you to make sense of tone and change it from a source of risk into a tool for creating effective content.
Attendees will learn about 1) a simple, workable set of definitions that you can use to promote shared understanding among stakeholders of what tone is; 2) A framework for identifying and applying tone attributes so that you can create a foundation for consistent practice, and 3) Some typical factors that will help you to see how tone can go awry and will help you create your own risk factors.

In 2013, GOV UK, the government services website for the United Kingdom, won the prestigious D&AD Black Pencil for its contribution to moving content forward as a design discipline. Since then GOV UK has been name-checked and modeled around the world as *the* way to do public sector content. And yet, aside from those who are really “in the know,” the practice of content design is still little known outside of government content circles. And inside of government, many people talk about it, but not many know how to do it well.
Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Padma Gillen, of Scroll UK, for this free, one-hour webinar. Formerly Head of Content Design for the UK's Government Digital Service, Padma has been at the heart of this emerging discipline since its earliest days. He now teaches others how to do it, and helps organizations rebuild their entire content function around the principles of user needs, designing with data and agile content production.
In this webinar, Padma will introduce you to these principles and explain how to incorporate them into your approach. Attendees will learn how to place the needs of users at the heart of your content strategy, apply agile methods to content production, and learn to understand the governance models needed to improve your content significantly.
Organizations in most any industry are feeling increasing pressure to move fast. But at what cost? Some have learned the hard way that skipping crucial processes, like testing, damages performance and impacts customer sentiments on your brand. In this case, the fast time to market becomes meaningless.
Smart businesses are adapting to a shift left strategy. These teams are learning how to incorporate testing early and often in the release cycle, supporting business requirements to move fast while ensuring high-performing products and quality. But getting there isn’t easy. In this webinar, we’ll cover:
•Testing tools: tool choice is important. Not all tools have been designed to support this new paradigm.
•Integrations: to be effective, testing tools must integrate easily with the tools and processes modern teams use, including CI/CD and APM products. Further, these tools must be very easy to use, specifically for developers.
•Organizational models: shifting left requires changes to traditional organizations and culture. We’ll share insight into the successful models we’ve seen.
The roles of B2B sales and marketing are colliding. And data is at the core of successfully bringing these functions together in a way that unlocks growth for your company.
Find out how D&B DataVision can help you centralise and update multiple customer and prospect data sources for deeper insight and more accurate targeting to help you deliver higher quality leads that match your ideal target segments.
We’ve all heard about the benefits of content modeling and structured content for technical information. We’ve implemented DITA or other topic-based strategies to break content into smaller blocks to manage and publish, but topics are not small enough.
But the addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and AI 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 Val Swisher, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and her special guest, Steve Manning of Precision Content, for this webinar. Steve will discuss how new technology will change the way we approach content and the topic-based approach to deliver what you need for the new technology challenges. Steve will work through a different approach to the content that focuses you more on reader outcomes how that affects your content models. Attendees will learn how deep into their content then need to model to get the most from chatbots, voice-enabled systems, and ultimately AI.
Attendees will also learn 1) Why traditional topic-based DITA is not granular enough for the future; 2) How microcontent is a better approach to future-proof your content, and 3) How to use user outcomes to drive models and granularity.
Digital disruption is creating opportunities and very real challenges for businesses large and small.

Your Customers are your top marketing asset. In today's webinar, we'll be focusing on building your reputation and increasing your social reach—and revenue—via your customers.
Companies have always had to keep up with consumer trends, but today’s digitally connected customers pose a new predicament: they not only want the best products and services, they have access to more information than ever to help them determine the best.
Marketing taglines mean nothing to them. When selecting a business, customers trust the word of their peers above all else: 92% of people are more likely to trust a recommendation from another person over branded content. The Voice of the Customer is what sells.
We look forward to having you join us as we provide tips and tricks on how to:
-Engage your customers
-Best utilize that engagement to acquire more customers

Designing and managing complex, specific and even specialist work is no longer only the remit of centralized teams of specialist project managers, analysts and process experts. Companies are looking for looser, more matrixed, decentralized and collaborative forms of organization, they are reconsidering processes, people and technology as part of this shift with a focus increasingly on enabling these types of work to be done by business leaders and their teams.
Unfortunately the traditional mix of collaboration, team, task, project and business process management tools are struggling to deliver the balance of cohesive, flexible and extensible work processes business teams need.
They need a way of building automated processes that span across different systems and applications so that their myriad tactical workflows can be elevated into a strategic mesh of operations, giving them new ways to think about organizational culture, business agility, employee engagement, work throughput and customer satisfaction.
In this webinar Chris Marsh, Director of Workforce Productivity and Compliance at 451 Research and Ryan Duguid, SVP of Technology Strategy at Nintex will discuss the trends, pain points and opportunities around content and workflow automation for the modern workforce.
