    State of the Market Q3 2017: IT Spending Review and Outlook Stephen Minton, Vice President, Customer Insights & Analysis Recorded: Nov 16 2017 63 mins
    2017 is shaping up to be a good year for IT spending.

While economic risks remain, the short-term outlook has improved in recent months. However, beneath this picture of apparent calm and positive growth, seismic shifts are taking place which will reshape the industry for the next decade and beyond.

  • Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI
    Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI Steffen Frederiksen, DitaExchange Recorded: Nov 16 2017 59 mins
    Are you ready for how AI, machine learning, and other future technology will affect content development?

    The database revolution changed our relationship to data, making it reusable for different target audiences, contexts and situations. It also made it ready for flexible delivery to different apps and across many different platforms and media. But somehow these outcomes never fully transferred over to content. How can we bring this same revolution to content and win the same kind of enormous improvements that would prepare us for the future?

    Structured content management enables organizations to store, organize and build their content so that pieces are easily discoverable, reusable, reconfigurable and adaptable. It provides the perfect solution for constructing large, complex documents, but also for delivering modular content to chatbots, portal sites, and mobile apps. But, more importantly, it is also key to future-proofing your content for emerging technological trends.

    Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, and his special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, Founder and CSO of DitaExchange, for this free one-hour webinar. Attendees will learn what structured content management is and how it works. They will understand what benefits structured content can have for writers, project managers, business owners, IT departments and content consumers. They will also learn how to prepare their content to be fed into new technologies with practical examples from the field.

  • Copywriting to Content Design: Creating Content That Delights
    Copywriting to Content Design: Creating Content That Delights Padma Gillen, Scroll UK Dec 12 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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 me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my 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.

  • Tracking and Controlling Technical Documentation Projects
    Tracking and Controlling Technical Documentation Projects Barry Saiff, Saiff Solutions Dec 14 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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 me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my 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.
