  • Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts
    Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts Arjan Geveke (BEIS), Chris Dye (NSG Pilkington), Jamie Tabord (Inspired Energy) Recorded: Sep 17 2018 45 mins
    Government recognises that the increase in delivered electricity prices caused through the recovery of environmental levies on industrial energy consumers’ bills threatens to reduce the competitiveness of UK businesses in international markets.

    This particularly impacts our most energy intensive industries.

    To address this, a new exemption scheme from April 2018 provides relief to industries whose global competitiveness is most at risk. Eligible businesses may apply for a partial exemption from the costs of funding the Contracts for Difference and Renewables Obligation. Successful applicants are also, automatically, eligible for relief from Feed-In-Tariff costs.

    But does this go far enough?

    Government has recently consulted on widening the scheme - how do we strike the balance between supporting British industry and avoiding a heavy financial burden on those who are not eligible for the exemptions?

    And how does this tie into policy making for Brexit, British exports and the wider Industrial Strategy?

    Join our webinar to hear directly from Arjan Geveke, the Associate Director of Energy Policy (Productivity Team) at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as he outlines government's understanding of what industrial energy consumers need and how the policymakers plan to support these sectors.

    With response from NSG Pilkington - a major glass manufacturer affected by these issues and insight on market trends and consumer activity from Inspired Energy, this promises to be a lively and highly informative discussion.
  • Develop Your Own KPIs for Digital Transformation
    Develop Your Own KPIs for Digital Transformation Bill Keyworth, Suya Xiong Recorded: Sep 13 2018 25 mins
    Digital transformation presents an opportunity for established organizations to make significant changes to their businesses and operations through new technologies — creating improved and even disruptive business outcomes. Once these digital transformation objectives have been established, success metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) can guide the path to measuring performance and investments effectively. Traditional metrics (e.g., revenues, cost efficiencies) are no longer enough and must be blended with new metrics that can measure the short and long-term impact of management’s transformation investment decisions.
  • The Triangle of Product Knowledge: Connecting the Dots with Digital Experience
    The Triangle of Product Knowledge: Connecting the Dots with Digital Experience Joe Gelb Recorded: Sep 13 2018 62 mins
    In most companies, the majority of knowledge around your product falls into one of three categories: technical documentation, knowledge articles, and community discussions. Each type of knowledge, authored and managed by different stakeholders, has an essential role in bringing a varied perspective serving the cycle of evaluating, purchasing, using, troubleshooting, and maintaining your product, all of which contribute to overall customer success.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Joe Gelb, Founder and President of Zoomin Software for this free one-hour webinar on the Triangle of Product Knowledge.

    Documentation represents the formal, curated, long-tail knowledge backed by product management and engineering. Knowledge articles and FAQs represent the focused in-the-trenches know-how compiled by your support and service organization garnered from real-life use. Community discussions represent crowd-sourced knowledge from power users inside and outside of your company.

    In this webinar, Joe will examine trends towards connecting these varied forms of content into a unified digital experience, helping your company drive up the value of your content, with the ultimate goal of achieving higher customer satisfaction.
  • The Future is Now: Neuroscience, Chatbots, Voice, and Microcontent
    The Future is Now: Neuroscience, Chatbots, Voice, and Microcontent Barry Saiff and Rob Hanna Recorded: Sep 13 2018 62 mins
    If you're like many of us in tech pubs, your company has already dipped their toes into the rapidly developing field of chatbots and voice. Or perhaps your company is already waist-deep in it and they've tasked you with creating new content on a new system procured specifically for chatbots. Or worse, they've begun hiring a new class of writer, called the UX writer, to develop chatbot content in some other department that copies and pastes content from your technical manuals into chatbot databases. Or perhaps none of this is happening yet, but you want to get ahead of the curve.

    Now what if we told you that you can source chatbot and voice content directly from your structured technical content? What if we told you that rewriting and restructuring your content for chatbots could make your content far more accessible for users in your traditional content delivery channels? What if we could show you that this evolution in structured writing was simply a continuation of our journey down the path to developing structured content for DITA and other topic-based architectures?

    Join host, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guests Rob Hanna, President of Precision Content Authoring Services, and Barry Saiff, Founder and CEO of Saiff Solutions, as we introduce the concept of microcontent as a core component of structured topics.

    Attendees will learn how industry trends point to the emergence of smaller, more precise, componentized content, why writing and classifying content based on user intent matters, how topic structures can support microcontent within topics, and how microcontent is published and consumed by emerging technologies

  • Blockchain and Energy: Electrifying!
    Blockchain and Energy: Electrifying! Victoria Brown, Senior Research Manager, IDC Retail Insights and Nelson Petracek, CTO, TIBCO Software Inc Oct 9 2018 8:00 am UTC 21 mins
    Digital transformation is continuing to change the way we look at building applications. For years, enterprises have been attempting to streamline energy functions by building marketplaces, “standardized” exchange formats, and monolithic systems. However, in many cases, these solutions have missed the mark and resulted in processes that are fragmented, brittle, and unable to share data seamlessly.

    Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency platforms, can potentially address many of these issues. The ability to share information via a shared, trusted distributed network with embedded business logic has many potential benefits for the energy industry, especially when combined with techniques from the IoT and AI communities. Join this panel discussion to hear about enterprise blockchains, how to determine the value of blockchain to your enterprise, and several items (including myths) that must be considered for a successful blockchain enterprise implementation.
