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.
ABOUT STEFFEN FREDERIKSEN
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.

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.

95% of companies have adopted cloud services but the 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Survey found there is a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by companies in different markets. Organizations admitted that on average, only two-fifths (40%) of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions. This is disturbing since only a quarter (25%) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are very confident they know all the cloud services their business is using,
The reality is cloud creates challenges in knowing where your data resides and what or who has access to it. In 2018, breaches like Uber and Accenture occurred because of improperly configured security for web and cloud applications that were connected to a company’s network. A major catalyst to address this is upcoming regulations and compliance, which are trying to catch up with cloud adoption. Over the next few years, companies will be faced with more complicated and intricate auditing to demonstrate security and privacy best efforts in the cloud.
During this webinar, Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection, will walk attendees through the research methodology, key findings and how things have changed over the past couple of years. Join us to learn more about:
-2018 Global Cloud Data Security Findings
-Compliance and cloud security: How will this work?
-A shift in the budget: Where is IT spending their money?
-Country breakdown of IT cloud security: Who is doing the best?
-What can you do to secure the cloud and comply with regulations?
Digitising Customer Onboarding: How to improve the customer experience without compromising on compliance and risk
Today’s consumers, accustomed to receiving smart and convenient digital services from companies such as Uber, Apple and Amazon, and are beginning to demand personalised, interactive and immediate services from their banks.
A recent report revealed 42% of UK consumers have adopted FinTech services (EY 2017 FinTech Adoption Survey), so it’s no surprise banks want to adapt to the fast-moving digital marketplace where new and disruptive competitors are already circling. What’s stopping them though, is risk.
Creating an environment that drives the productivity, speed and compliance essential to sell financial services via digital channels is paramount to survival.
This webinar will explore how banks can digitise the customer onboarding process without compromising on risk, satisfying customers, regulators and shareholders alike.
Organizations with Microsoft environments, such as Azure or Office 365, are inclined to implement Microsoft’s native access management solutions (namely, Azure AD and AD FS).

Join this webinar to learn the five things to consider before implementing Microsoft’s access management solutions. You will also see a demo of how you can centrally define access management policies (including cloud SSO and step-up authentication) for Microsoft and 3rd party apps with a vendor agnostic-solution.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new data regulation that requires all companies that process data on EU residents to comply with strict policies. In scope are customers, data on behalf of customers, employees, vendors, or contractors. Many US companies are just learning of GDPR or understanding that, despite perhaps not directly doing business in the EU, they may unexpectedly be required to put substantial safeguards into place to be compliant. The kicker is, companies have only until May 25th, 2018 to put these safeguards into place.
In this webinar, we’re joined by special guest, Jodi Daniels, Privacy Consultant and Founder of Red Clover Advisors, and Andrew Richardson, Elite SEM Director of Analytics, who will walk us through everything you need to know regarding:
- GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
the relationship between PII (Personally Identifiable Information) and GDPR
- how you and your company will be affected, even if you don’t directly do business in the EU
- what actions you and your company should be taking in order to avoid high penalties
Technology is increasingly important to every enterprise's initiatives, but with dozens of alternatives, do you have the right solution? Thinking about divorcing your current vendor? Looking to adopt new technology from scratch? This session is for you.
Rather than selecting technology based on a ratings spreadsheet or who plays golf with your boss, we'll offer a more practical — and effective! — approach. This webinar deals the straight dope on pitfalls to avoid and reliable paths to follow.
You'll learn about the most important criteria when creating a shortlist, what should really be in that (brief) RFP, and how to plan a vendor demo that's meaningful and useful to you. So stop selecting the wrong technology. Here's a better way to ensure you make the right choice.
