  • Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously!
    Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously! Steffen Frederiksen Recorded: Mar 15 2018 61 mins
    Do you have Office 365 in your organization? You may not realize it, but you already have the perfect solution for delivering the right information to the right people, at the right time, in the right format and language–and on the device of their choosing.

    Most content services hubs are expensive and complicated. Office 365 is an affordable, cloud-based, scalable platform that allows you to build content for a future of AI, machine-learning, chatbots, and machine-to-machine communication. It enables everyone, whether experienced in content architectures like DITA and XML or not, to use Microsoft Word and other familiar tools to create and share content in real time. Gartner recognized Microsoft as a leader in the Content Management Platform Magic Quadrant in 2017. Find out why!

    Join our special guest host, Paul Perrotta, and our special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, for this free, one-hour webinar, and learn exactly why and how Office 365 is a great platform for authoring, managing, and delivering the content of the future. Attendees will also learn the benefits that come with using it, as well as be taken through a specific use case in financial services.


    Since 1989, Steffen Frederiksen has been working with the creation, management, and distribution of structured, reusable business content. This work includes methods, software tools, training workshops and CMS solutions. He has managed the training of more than 200,000 writers around the globe, primarily in the financial services, pharma, and other regulated industries.

    While working for Information Mapping, Steffen developed the concept of “object-oriented information” as well as the MOM (Mapping Object Model) XML DTDs – some of the foundation of the DITA standard. With the objective of bringing the power of structured content to everyone, he founded DitaExchange in 2001 and developed its Dx4 software, which combines the DITA standard, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office.

  • Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution
    Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution Steve Manning Recorded: Mar 13 2018 59 mins
    On December 12, 2017, Steve Manning presented a discussion on how new technology will change the way we approach content. The addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and Artificial Intelligence means we must change the way we structure content. We are moving from a broadcast style of communication – publish and hope for the best – to a more conversational style of communication. More question and answer.

    This imposes requirements on the content models you need to create if you want to talk to the Bots. We must be more granular in our models. We need to implement Microcontent.

    Join our special guest host, Val Swisher, and Steve Manning In Part II of this series, where Steve will go a little deeper. He will discuss the language of bots/AI: intents, attributes, and assets. Then he’ll relate that to how the granularity you design into your models, the semantic labels you apply to elements, and the taxonomy you capture in creation can make or break your ability to publish DITA content to the new technologies. The session will include real-world scenarios that rely on a microcontent strategy.

  • 16 Tips and Recommendations to Capture Marketing Consent for GDPR
    16 Tips and Recommendations to Capture Marketing Consent for GDPR Nick Burrell, Co-Founder, CleverTouch Marketing Recorded: Mar 6 2018 50 mins
    There are two areas of GDPR that are most relevant to us in Marketing - consent and legitimate interest. Without gaining one of these, we are unable to communicate with our marketing database in a post-GDPR world and therefore run the risk of losing a large percentage of our marketable database. Not only are we fearing that but with non-GDPR compliant fines being up to 4% of global turnover, this is a topic now very much on the radar of the c-suite.

    So how can we go about generating marketing opt-ins and capture consent?
