  • [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 Recorded: Sep 19 2017 59 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.

  • Elevating Intelligent Content to the Next Level
    Elevating Intelligent Content to the Next Level Michael Priestley, Rob Hanna, and Steve Manning Recorded: Sep 13 2017 63 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?
  • Making Microservices Event-Driven
    Making Microservices Event-Driven Jonathan Schabowsky Recorded: Sep 7 2017 52 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES - PASSING THE “SO WHAT?” TEST FOR BRANDS Chris Helm, COO & Co-Founder, Blend Media Sep 27 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Brands typically invest in one-off, high end immersive experiences that
    deliver difficult to measure ROI metrics whilst also being challenging to
    consume for viewers.

  • How to Simplify Aviation Certification with Stratasys 3D Printing
    How to Simplify Aviation Certification with Stratasys 3D Printing Norman Stucker, 3D Printing General Manager Sep 27 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The aerospace industry’s adoption of additive manufacturing is growing and predicted to revolutionize the manufacturing process. However, to meet stringent FAA and EASA requirements, AM-developed aerospace products must be certified that they can achieve the robust performance levels provided by traditional manufacturing methods. Current certification processes are complex and variable, and thus obstruct AM adoption in aerospace.

    Join PADT's 3D Printing General Manager, Norman Stucker for a live webinar that will introduce you to the new Stratasys aerospace package that removes the complexity from FAA and EASA certification, helping aerospace organizations to get more parts certified for flight quicker and easier.
