If you’re like most organizations today, you’ve invested in content for marketing, sales, support, product strategy, and a host of other reasons. You’ve developed ways to more efficiently and effectively create, manage, and deliver content. Despite these significant investments, you—and your stakeholders—are likely still asking the question, “Does our content work?”
While that sounds like a simple question, getting answers can be challenging, to say the least. But, it doesn’t have to be. Not if you start with a strategy and the right tools for the job.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, content scientist Colleen Jones, for a presentation about measuring content performance. Jones (and her crew at Content Science) have spent the last few years working with large, global brands to identify what makes content effective—and how to measure it. The result is ContentWrx—a robust performance measurement tool designed to help your organization make content decisions that improve or accelerate return on investment.
Attend this free, one-hour webinar, and you'll learn how to track the six dimensions of content effectiveness and make informed business decisions based on data. You’ll discover the four elements of the ContentWrx system, and you’ll find out how easy it can be to collect, analyze and act upon behavioral and perception data. You’ll also learn how ContentWrx can help you close the gap between your data and user feedback.
As a bonus, Jones will share the top 3 insights from an analysis of data from more than 100,000 content users.

The notion of a Smart Factory today is based on utilizing modern Industrial IoT concepts. While it is not practical for existing brown fields to immediately modernize and adopt all these technologies and best practices, it is however possible for factories to cherry pick individual technologies and practices as a path to gradually modernize over time. These include technologies and best practices that allow for seamless machine interoperability, easy data sharing between machines, MES, ERP, and SCADA systems.
This webinar will provide an overview of some of these technologies and will also discuss the new industry standards that make such a migration possible. We’ll also share a proof of concept, the IIC Smart Factory Web Testbed, which is a network of smart factories with flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources and assets to improve order fulfillment.
Featured IIC Testbed: Smart Factory Web
The Smart Factory Web forms a network of smart factories with flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources and assets to improve order fulfillment. Key challenges being addressed: How can we connect factories to the Smart Factory Web and exchange data reliably? How can we provide the information securely at the right granularity to authorized partners? How can production capabilities be adapted quickly and efficiently in response to orders?
