  • How Avanan is Disrupting the Cloud Security Market
    How Avanan is Disrupting the Cloud Security Market Michael Landewe, Cofounder Avanan Recorded: Aug 10 2017 34 mins
    It's the Avanan Era of Security–most every security vendor has joined together on a single platform to solve the problem of security in the cloud. It is challenging every security assumption:

    • Single-silo solutions that solve one problem or only protect one SaaS;
    • Incompatible technology that makes it impossible to deploy true defense-in-depth;
    • Disruptive deployment that reroutes traffic;
    • Technology lock-in and vendor regret;

    The Avanan disruption in the marketplace is actually an elimination of the chaos of incompatible products that do not work together or don't integrate with the current enterprise security architecture.

    In this webinar, we will discuss how the Avanan platform changes the security equation for:

    • SaaS/IaaS: that can now offer cloud-native security,
    • Security Buyer: who can deploy and compare multiple solutions at once,
    • The Security Architect: who can integrate the cloud into the enterprise security workflow,
    • The CISO: who requires both security and compliance,
    • The CEO: who will not tolerate business disruption,
    • The User: who needs to just get work done.

    Soon, the Avanan Platform is the way that all cloud security technology will be compared, purchased, deployed and managed.

  • 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
    4) Learn how clean, simple content benefits accessibility and inclusivity

    About the presenter

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. More recently, he drove the content strategy for the Bing-based content form known as Instant Answers for Windows 10. While continuing to nurture Instant Answers, he leads a team focused on accessibility, Inclusive Design and Microsoft’s experimental new Virtual Support Agent.  So yes, he went from editing Britney Spears reviews and restaurant coverage to technical content, but in his mind it all makes sense.
     
  • 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

  • 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.

    Making Microservices Event-Driven Jonathan Schabowsky Sep 7 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Microservices may be small in size, but they have huge potential, especially when you pair them with the idea of event-driven architecture (EDA). Today developers are using microservices as the building blocks behind all kinds of cloud and enterprise applications, but most still think microservices = REST, which limits you to polling/reactive interactions.

    Join Jonathan Schabowsky of Solace’s Office of the CTO at Solace as he describes how combining EDA and microservices can help you improve all kinds of data flows. He’ll talk about query and command interactions, synchronous and asynchronous communications, and you’ll learn how to make microservices event-driven.
  • Elevating Intelligent Content to the Next Level
    Elevating Intelligent Content to the Next Level Michael Priestley, IBM and Rob Hanna, Precision Content Sep 13 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    You may already know the value of content that is constructed based on its purpose rather than just presentation. But many solutions today lock that value into one product or silo, inhibiting collaboration and reuse across the enterprise.

    The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is a widely-adopted XML standard that delivers on this promise of intelligent content, but there are some inhibitors to adoption. Some see it as too complex. Others work to create content in compliance with an existing content format such as HTML or Markdown. With Lightweight DITA in the works, we can finally bridge the gap between the promise of intelligent content and the challenge of diverse authoring platforms and communities.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and his special guests Michael Priestley, one of the original architects of the DITA standard, and Rob Hanna from Precision Content, for a free one-hour online discussion designed to help you decide whether you should consider adopting DITA or Lightweight DITA.

    Are you ready for intelligent content?

  • [Google Case Study] Optimizing Content for Improved Translation Effectiveness
    [Google Case Study] Optimizing Content for Improved Translation Effectiveness Jon Ann Lindsey, Google and Val Swisher, Content Rules Sep 19 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We’ve all heard advice about how to improve source content. These tips and tricks usually sound like perfectly reasonable suggestions. Common sense, right?

    But, where's the proof that these so-called best practices actually improve customer experience? In 2016, content strategists from Google visited 11 countries to talk to customers in order to find out what these real people actually want and need from their content. As it turns out, lessons learned from Google customer feedback research provided some surprising results.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and my special guests, content strategy manager, Jon Ann Lindsey (Google) and global content strategy expert, Val Swisher (Content Rules), for a lively discussion about the importance of getting feedback before you make decisions about how you’ll translate and localize content. You'll learn several ideas you can use to adjust your source content so that your translations are improved. You’ll see lots of examples from content in the real world and leave with actionable items that you can implement immediately.

    You will learn which problems Google found (they weren't just the usual suspects) and to make big improvements in your content that are easy to implement. And you'll discover why overtly "empathetic" language and reassurances don't always serve the needs of customers.

This webcast will discuss communications and connectivity infrastructure that is being deployed in and to current real estate developments; what buiding owners, operators and tenants expect; the impact smart community development is having on smart buildings; and sample smart building IoT applications.

  • System Without a Strategy? Diagnosing Content Management Problems
    System Without a Strategy? Diagnosing Content Management Problems Regina Lynn Preciado Sep 26 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    You bought the content management system, you migrated your content into it, and you might even have implemented DITA. So why is your content management such a mess? Content management projects have a way of sprawling into content un-management, especially if your organization started with a system but did not have a strategy.

    There are several areas in which content management can become content “manglement.” The good news is, you’re already thinking in terms of managing your content, and chances are you can get things back on track.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for this free, one-hour webinar along with my special guest, Regina Preciado, a content strategy consultant who helps companies transform how they organize, manage, and leverage content. Regina will take a look at what went wrong—and help you come away with a plan for diagnosing your specific content management issues, and how to start treatment. Regina will talk about where things are most likely to get messy; how to figure out what’s really gone wrong—it’s (probably) not “everything,” and the steps you can take immediately to diagnose—and start treating—your specific content situation.
